My Darling Husband poped the question with my Great Grandmothers wedding ring. She had her band set to her e-ring so I really didn’t want to add a band plus its swirly so I didn’t want to have one made. … anyway…
After I bought him his band he stole it and wore it- He was a little bit of ALOT over excited. SO I was like what do we do about switching our rings…
so we gave our rings to our Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man right before the ceremony and had them to a “Pre ceremony Ring Exchange.” No one knows it happend or anything it was private between them but we have a picture!!
and here it is!
What do you guys think?
What did you/ are you doing if you don’t have a band!?

@alishaloo: Aww, that’s so so sweet!
I don’t have a band, and my dh hadn’t chosen his at the time of our wedding, so we didn’t have anything to exchange at all. Fortunately in our religion they aren’t a big deal. You can exchange them after the ceremony, but it’s not part of it, so we just skipped them all together. On the one hand I wish we’d had something to exchange, but on the other when I went to my cousins wedding and saw how understated it was I was glad we didn’t stress about it.

@alishaloo: We are! I know a lot of people who have many friends and family who aren’t lds will have a more formal ring exchange outside of the temple, but most of our friends and family are, so we weren’t worried about that part. It’s interesting, I’ve only been to one lds temple wedding besdies mine, but they just stood off to the side of the alter and exchanged the rings, no words or anything. So different from the other weddings I’ve been to!

My rings were already soldered together but we just gave them to the best man and did a ring exchange during the ceremony as usual.

@Westwood: That is basically what we did only we gave them to Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man.
I know alot of people do it this way but I wanted to make something of it so I thought of this and now I have this amazing picture of these two ! I love this picture!
We actually tried to hook them up forever but he was head over heels for this other girl and actually just poped the question to her.
