So we had a band for FI picked out, he liked it I liked it. Then he was doing more searching for groomsmens gifts and he found another ring he really liked. He asked if he could get it and I said well how would you wear them? He said that he would wear the first ring we got 99% of the time and that he really liked this other ring just for certain times. I didn’t quite understand it but I’m thinking maybe he wants it as a filler or back up just in case, I’m not sure. In this case would we get both rings blessed at the wedding? Or just the first one? I’m still unsure about this but he went ahead and bought it.

He can start his own stack! 😉
They don’t both have to be blessed, but they can be, though I’d go with just the first one.

So long as he wants to wear a ring I could care less. If it bothers you get both rings blessed during the ceremony.

Fmjxn: ladies get two rings, why can’t he? Might be missing something but I’m not seeing the issue

Eh, no big deal. I’d probably just get one blessed, because it’s easier. My husband got one and decided, after wearing it for several weeks, that he wanted it a little smaller. Since it was titanium, he had to get a whole new ring. He kept the other one in case he swells this summer. Or in case he lost the one he currently wears.

Okay thanks ladies! I guess I was just over thinking it. 🙂

having 2 rings in my opinion is a really good idea. we purchased 2 for my FI, he will have his orginal wedding band and then one for work (hes in construction) so that his band doesnt get ruined. something to consider for yourself:)

Fmjxn: Why not? Women have more than one ring all the time. I wouldn’t worry about the blessing for any of them except the one specifically for binding your marriage.

DH has two rings. One blingy (his choice) for when’s he’s in the office, and a SS band that he wears when working in the manufacturing plants.
And perhaps I’m not thinking enough, but blessing a ring is not blessing that particular ring; it’s blessing what the ring signifies, and reminds us of what we need to remember…

Yeah FI has also discussed getting 2 rings. The design he really wants is beautiful but the material isn’t very hardwearing. He will have a simple titanium ring for work and camping and stuff and the other one will be for special occasions.

I mean, people lose their rings and get new ones, and as far as I know they don’t tend to get the replacements blessed too.

I don’t think blessing it is a big deal. Like Ladyamalthea said… are you going to get a replacement ring blessed? It’s blessed if you want it to be.

I noticed a woman who I swore wore different colored rings on different days. I asked her and she said that she had two otherwise identical rings in different colored metals that were both her wedding bands and that she changed depending on her clothing color etc.
I love this idea and I’m getting three bands (rose, white, and yellow) that my FI will put on my finger when we get married. If your FI is into this, go with it. I’m so excited to be able to switch or mix and match etc.
