I know typically when you get married you wear your engagament ring on your right hand, well not gonna happen with me, not by a long shot my right hand is a half size bigger haha soooo do I wear it on my pinkie? On a necklace? Not at all? What would you do?

Everyone I know wears their engagement ring stacked on the left ring finger with the band.

i think shes asking what to do witht the engagement ring during the ceremony.
my right ring finger is larger than my left as well. the ring can fit tehre, but it’s just uncomfortable.
i also just don’t like how my engagement ring looks on my right hand. just seems out of place.
so, i’m leaving my engagement ring on my left hand during the ceremony. i’ll just take it off when the wedding band goes on, then have my fiance “seal” it with the engagement ring.
you could also just put the wedding band on top of the e-ring and switch later

If you are worried that someone else will lose it during your trip down the aisle, I would just put it on a necklace (assuming that look works with your general wedding day look since you will be photographed like that). I think having it as a pinky ring will look weird if your photographer does closeups of your hands/bouquet/etc. as you are walking. Conversely, if your FI is pretty nimble and handy, I guess you can have him remove the ering and slip on the wedding band and re-slip on the ering after that during the ceremony. Or you can just have him pop on the wedding band on top of the ering and discreetly move it back into order after the ceremony before other closeup photos are taken.

Oh yes after we are married I will be wearing it on the left finger, what I meant was during the ceremony only because you dont wear your engagement ring on the left finger during your walk down the aisle and before the wedding bands are exchanged, once the wedding band is on then you put your engagament ring back on……sorry for the confusion! Just all girls around here wear it on the right hand for that part but mine wont fit…..

We gave it to the best man to hold on. My husband put the wedding ring on and then the engagement ring on after that as part of the ceremony.

I am thinking of just having it with the band so fi can put them both on the same time (so not wearing it at all during the day until after w eget married.)

I just wore mine on my left hand too! I wanted my engagement ring to be blessed when my wedding band was.

i just wore my ering on my left hand, and the wedding ring went on my left hand too during the ceremony…then after the ceremony i just switched it the correct way with the band being on the inside and e-ring on the outside..

I had mine with my wedding band and my husband just put them on together. We had a ring warming ceremony so I wanted it passed around at the same time as the bands plus it wouldn’t fit comfortably on my right hand.

MY friend gave hers to the maid of honor to wear during the ceremony. Then she gave it back to her at the end.

If you are not using a Ring Bearer, and do decide to give them to Hubby-2-B or Bestman BOTH rings to hold onto, you might want to consider doing so with a double-ring box (from a Jewellers). That way, the person holding onto these valuable pieces, has a larger item to keep track of, with both rings in one spot… I so wouldn’t want my rings just floating around in someone’s pocket… where the chance of losing one is much greater !!
