I had mine soldered together and put them on as one ring during the ceremony. Maybe you could do one band and the ering on your right hand, let him put just the band on the left, and move them over after the ceremony?

I have the same issue.. But I never really overthought it. I was just gonna have him put on one band during the ceremony, and then afterwards, i would fix everything and add the second band… my bands are contoured, and I dont want him fiddling with the band and trying to figure out which way it goes… so imagine if I ask him to place BOTH bands! He’s probably drop them or something lol.. 

They look like this.. So again, I’ll just have him add one band over the Ering, and then after the ceremony, I will add the second band underneath it all..

My wedding band hugs the engagement ring, so the best man gave him the wedding ring, I put it on the Ering, and then he put both on my finger.

@Sevyn I have an open-face sandwich ring, meaning I only have the bottom part not the top.  What we did was, before the ceremony I have gave him my E-Ring and he assembled the ring in put it the box.  When it came time to exchange rings, he put the E-Ring and wedding band on at the same time.  What you can do is not wear the top one until later, have him just put on wedding band and the E-ring together during the ceremony.  Then sometime after the ceremony put the top one on.

I have a band style similar to the one posted.  He just took off my ring, put the bottom one on, my e-ring, then the top one, like I normally would wear it. It honestly wasn’t akward at all.  It only took a few seconds, and most people are far enough away from the action that they don’t see the ring exchange very detailed anyway.

Could you wear two bands on your right hand and he can put the bottom of the sandwich on your left. Later, you can put the other two on top?

I’d also say just put on one ring for the ceremony and fix it yourself immediately afterward. Putting on the ring is a symbolic act and it should look as graceful and smooth as possible, no fumbling!

@auggiefrog:  Awesome! I always thought it would take too long or be distracting, but I’m glad you mentioned it worked out just fine for you… Perhaps FI and I can practice when we actually buy the bands lol
