@linnylou_88:  I’m planning on stacking rings – but I’ll only have one at the ceremony.  The one I’ll use is the one that matches my e-ring.  The rest- I’m not sure!

@linnylou_88:  I’m planning on stacking. I’ll have 2 wedding bands and I will have them both at the ceremony. My logic is that one band is set with all amethysts and I’m worried that overtime they might not hold up well, so I got a diamond eternity as well that should last forever. I will use both during the ceremony so no matter what I’ll always have an original wedding band.

@linnylou_88:  I’m planning on having both at the ceremony. He will just slip them both on and I’ll put my e-ring on after the ceremony for the pics. I love both bands that we picked out, so I can’t pick just one for the ceremony. 

An Option for you might be to wear one band on your left hand and one on your right or on a necklace. Then, you have them on, just swap them out for different occasions. 

Because my bands are sterling silver (because we couldn’t afford the real deal quite yet) I know I’ll have to be careful with my set, but having the option to wear them both, swap hands or leave one at home makes me feel really excited to have multiple rings.

I have 2 WBands… one Plain & one Sparkly

Both were used during the Wedding Ceremony.

After we got my ERing, I wasn’t sure what I wanted for a WBand, I went back and forth between a Plain & Sparkly Ring.  All I did know that as an Encore it had to be something distinctly different than what I did for my First Marriage (they were an interlocking Bridal Set in Yellow Gold)

Lifewise Mr TTR was set in his ideas too…

He didn’t want a WBand.  He just isn’t a Jewellery type of guy.  And at 60+ years old and an Encore, I knew I wasn’t going to change his mind.

It was when we went WBand Shoppping that it hit me…

We’d get them both.  The Sparkly would represent me, the Plain would represent him.  During the Wedding Ceremony both were used & blessed… this was important to me as I wanted to know that no matter which I was wearing that it was a TRUE WBand for us.

In the Ceremony I placed the plain ring on his finger (well up to the knuckle) and said my Vow.  When he said his Vow to me, he placed BOTH rings onto my finger together.

And so I wear them both… sometimes together like I did on our Wedding Day (a stack of 3).  And at other times, I mix n match em… 1, 2, 3 at a time… different configurations, different fingers etc.

Lots of possibilities… and one of my fave is the 2 WBands together (as they both Match, in style having come from Peoples Canada / Zales USA)

Another reason that I really really love having a Plain WBand tho is that I NEVER have to go without.  No matter what I am doing, I can wear a WBand.  I take my Sparklies off sometimes to keep them safe from harm (and occasionally all my rings)

ie: Home Renovations – Painting – Gardening – Deep Cleaning – Cooking / Baking where I “knead” to get my hands dirty – for the gym – some water sports (snorkelling – scuba etc) – and when we travel to “sketchy” areas I either lock them up in the Hotel Room / Ship Cabin Safe, or just leave them at home to begin with in our Bank’s Safety Deposit Box

I have to say that it was WBee that inspired me also to even consider a “ring stack”… and I am sooo happy that I made this choice.  Something I had not even considered before coming to this website.  Lol, now I am seriously thinking that I’d like to add more narrow straight edged bands to my collection as the years go on so I have even more options… needless to say, I really like the look.

Hope this helps,

@linnylou_88:  

 

I am now up to three bands and yes, sometimes I do wear them all together… but they are very skinny and stackable.

And if I have my way, I’ll have a couple more in the years to come at anniversary time.. we’ll see!

@linnylou_88: my reasons were 

1. I love jewlery!

2. I love the first band we picked out, but I wanted to have one on top and one on bottom, I could no longer find the same band in stores, so I picked a different style. 

3. I know that I want options as far as different styles for different occasions, so getting two bands gives me those options.

@linnylou_88:  My wedding set came with 2 wedding bands. One I wear already on special occasions becase I consider it to be more of an anniversary bnd (and we been engaged for over 2 years so I think I deserve to wear it now lol). Once we are married I will wear all 3 all the time.

 

During the ceremony I will be wearing band #1 and my e-ring and then he will just slip te second band onto my finger. I also perfer doing it that way because most of our photos willl be taken during the first look and befor the ceremony, but I’ll still be wearing 2 rings in them. One thing I don’t like about first looks is take the bride usual only has her e-ring (or no ring) on in the pictures, and I perfer the photos to look ‘married-y’ not ‘pre-married-y’ if that makes any sense to you! lol

This is my ring set…. I am going to get both on my wedding day… As far as how I am going to wear them, it will mainly be like this, but I will also switch it up and sometimes wear just the matching band with my ering and other times wear the non matching band with it….. it was also really important to me to have bands that are straight opposed to those that curve around your ering because I wear medical gloves for work and wearing a big diamond isn’t always doable or practical but still want to be able to wear a ring….

I have 2 wedding bands. I wore one into the ceremony and had husband place the other one. I didn’t want to worry about ring fumbling, etc. Mine are both identical and they were both there with me, so I don’t have special significance for one over the other.

Sorry it’s huge and not of great quality!  I had my bands all soldered together two days before the wedding and just had my husband put the whole shebang on at once.  Worked out well, I’m glad I had it together for my honeymoon!

 

i have a coworker that doesn’t have her soldered.  She thought shed just wear the wedding band sometimes, but then she goes, why would I wear this (wedding band) when I can wear this (both). id never want to just wear my wedding band.   I like more bling.

@linnylou_88:  It was because I got a 3/4 eternity amethyst band (it was important to have purple incorporated in my set for personal reasons) and I’m worried about the longevity of amethyst since it is a softer stone. FH preferred the look of petite diamond eternities as well, so we decided to get both.

I have 2.  I’ll wear one on either side of my e-ring.  I plan to always wear them together.  I’ll put all three on at the ceremony.
