wedding band closest to my palm/body… I personally don’t like them the other way… but I want to get another band for an anniversary band because I’m weird and need symmetry. 🙂

I don’t even understand what this means…can you display a photo?

EDIT:  Oh, do you mean you’d place your engagement ring on your finger first, then your wedding band?  (E.g., e-ring would be closer to knuckle/palm, wedding ring on top of that?)

I will probably wear them the opposite of you, but I really don’t think that it matters which way you wear it. My aunt switches the way she wears hers depending on how she puts them on. I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

I think it’s tradional to wear your wedding band closest to your heart.  This is how I plan to wear my set after I’m married.  I’m choosing to wear it this way because for me, marriage is a much bigger commitment and the wedding band symbolizes something more powerful than the engagement ring does so it’s important for it to be closest to my heart. 

My Maid/Matron of Honor is married and wears her wedding band on the outside like you’ve describe and wouldn’t have it any other way.  To her, the order that she recieved the rings is special and reminds her of each stage of her relationship with her Darling Husband.  I think it’s really sweet 🙂

I’ll either wear my band on its own (when I’m married), or wedding band closer to heart.

I’m impartial either way though- I’m just a sucker for tradition

Traditionally, the wedding band as the more important symbol (of the commitment itself rather than just the promise to commit) goes closer to the heart, i.e. on first. Plus, since the engagement ring is usually more substantial, it helps secure and hold the wedding band in place. You might, depending on your jewelry, be making it more likely you will lose one of the rings by ordering them the way you suggest.

I have three bands so I wear two closest to heart and one on top of engagement ring. I like how it looks: a stacked assymetrical look. When I had one band, I wore it closest to my heart – I did not like how it looked other way at all on my hand.

Everyone should do whatever the heck they want!

I wear it this way bc it’s also what I saw growing up. And my bands are bigger is size than my e-ring so it would be too tight. Yes, I could get it sized but I just prefer to wear my rings this way. I feel like I got my e-ring first so to me it makes sense to wear it first. Here are my rings…

Before I got engaged, I thought your way’s supposed to be the way to do it until I started google about how to wear wedding band.  Personally, I’d like to wear Engagement Ring first and then wedding band.

I could not wear it any other way than wedding ring closest to the palm. It makes my head fuzzy the other way!
