So… we’re less than three weeks from the wedding and all the little details are flooding my mind. I’m a bit stumped on how to wear my rings on wedding day… Should I completely take off my engagement ring for the day? Should I let him put the wedding band on top of the engagement ring during the ceremony? Should I wear the engagement ring on my right hand?
What are you doing and why?

You can do this however you want. I decided to wear my engagement ring, as I was already wearing a topaz on my right hand and said e-ring doesn’t fit on my right hand. It was just too fabulous to not wear, after all. He just slid my wedding ring on top and we fixed them when we had a second. I wasn’t going to wear my e-ring, then before i went down the aisle, i said, “screw it” and figured it’s been part of me, why wouldn’t i suddenly wear it?

I am going to wear it up until the ceremony and then we are doing an engagement ring portion of the ceremony where he will put it in after my wedding ring!

We haven’t decided what we are doing, but here’s an idea for you. I read this on Weddingbee awhile back. This is what another bride is going to do.
The engagement ring is done after the wedding bands. The officiantsays “The engagement ring is a symbol of promise and intention. Nowthe intention is realized and the promise fulfilled. Please place yourengagement ring on “bride’s name” finger over her wedding band tosymbolize that the love that brought you together will always protectand sustain your marriage.”
Just an idea. Hope it helps.

I like the idea of keeping the engagement ring on my right hand for the ceremony and putting it on top of the wedding band afterward. I also like the thing that Charm bracelet found. I have never heard of that before.

I am planning on putting my e-ring on my right hand (that is if it fits on that hand properly). Once the ceremony is over I will add my e-ring to my ring finger behind the wedding ring.
From what I was told you want the wedding ring closest to your heart but I am not doing the above for that reason. Who knows, I may keep the e-ring on my finger since i have a nasty ring tan 🙂

I didn’t vote- I’m getting my wedding bands soldered onto my e-ring pre-wedding and will have him just put that big clunker on my left hand.

I built my color scheme around my aquamarine e-ring, and it went so well with my dress and jewelry that I HAD to wear it!! So, I wore it on my right hand and he put my wedding band on as normal… I think? Now I can’t even remember? I may have worn the e-ring on the left. So don’t stress too much, you might not even remember what you did!

You can do whatever you want – any of those options work! I will be wearing my engagement ring on my right hand for the ceremony, and actually thereafter too. I’ll be blinged out on both hands.

I will wear my e-ring on my right hand during the ceremony. After the ceremony I will put it on my left hand over my wedding band.
I’ve always liked the idea of wearing my wedding band close to my heart!

The way that my wedding band it made I would technically wear it on top of or beneath my engagement ring, thankfully it works out that way and I will be wearing the band over my engagement ring for the ceremony –but after it will go below

Remember that if you’re right handed then your ring sizes on your right hand are usually a half size bigger because of the muscles you use in that hand.
And so opposite if you’re left handed, so just remember the ring may be too small or too big on the right hand.
My ring is a Claddagh and is worn one way when you’re engaged, and another way when you’re married so my ring will be worn during and be apart of the ceremony.

I wore my e ring on my right hand during the ceremony and switched it to go with my wedding ring just after. I normally wear a claddaugh on my right hand ring finger so I had my oldest sister-in-law (who gave me the claddagh) wear it during the ceremony. It was a last minute thing, but ended up being a moment that I’ll cherish.
