I’m trying to pick my wedding band and I’m torn. I like my engagement ring with two bands, one on either side. How do you handle that for catholic ceremony? Does my FI just put both on togther, and I switch them after I sit down?
Or should I just get one wedding band with two rows of diamonds?

What does your engagement ring look like? If you like the look of two wedding bands, then I say go for it. 🙂 Your FI could put just one on for the ceremony, and you could add the other later, if you’re okay with that. I wouldn’t worry about the ceremony too much. 🙂

You just have him slip one on your finger and then you put your e-ring and the other band on afterwards. Or you can have them all put together so that they are just one ring.

Thanks for advice ladies. I have middle princess cut about 1.5, with 6 smaller diamonds on each side (no channel setting ro anything). I was going to get two bands with singel row diamonds for each side. Other option was 1 band with rows, but I like more symmetrical look.

My wedding band is a wrap or sometimes called a guard. It has two bands already attached and my e ring slides right into the center of it. It will be taken into the jeweler about a week before the wedding to be soldered. So that will be what he slides on my finger, just one big ring.

I am going to have two wedding bands.
At the ceremony I will wear my engagement ring on my right hand and he will put both wedding bands on my left hand. I really want both of the wedding bands to be part of the ceremony so that I’ll always feel like they’re both my “real” wedding bands.
If you like the look of two bands then I definitely think you should go for it.

I think you should include both wedding bands in the ceremony, as they’ll then feel special and sacred to you. When he grabs the bands from the ring bearer, have him pinch the two rings together and slide them on at the same time (as opposed to one band, then e-ring, then other band). You can switch the order later, but this way, all three of your rings will be your official wedding set.

If you’re thinking of getting your rings soldered together, you could have this done before the wedding and have your fiance place them on your finger that way.

I am in the same situation. I have chosen to wear my engagement ring on my right hand during the wedding. During the Mass, he’ll slip on both of my wedding bands, in one motion, holding them together. After the ceremony, I’ll put my engagment ring between them. I am not getting them soldered because I like the flexibilty to wear them different ways or separately.

I want to get 2 bands too.. I was thinking of tying (is that the right spelling? sorry my crazy english) them with a white or red thread.. not sure if it’s cheesy or tacky, but I just find that idea quite romantic for some reason…

My wedding ring is a wrap, so it looks like two rings, but it’s actually one. When we got married, DH had my wedding ring in his pocket. When the pastor asked for the rings, we both gave the wedding rings to the pastor, and then I took off my engagement ring and gave it to DH. DH then put my e-ring into my wedding ring before he put it on my finger.
One thing you might want to consider if you aren’t going to have your rings soldered, is to have the wedding bands made into a wrap/guard by having the jeweler connect them with two or three bars. It will help keep your rings lined up properly and not spin on your finger.
