Hi Bees! I’m new! My first question is this:
My mother and I are debating (as we always do) about whether I should wear a big ring on the middle finger of my right hand during the wedding. I would like to – something like this
or even this:
She doesn’t think I should even wear anything because it will take away from the wedding ring and engagement ring – but I love big chunky rings and it’s really so my style that I would feel weird without anything on that hand.
What do you think? To ring or not to ring?

I really like the ametrine one! If it’s really “You” then I say go for it. Why try to be somebody else on your wedding day?
But it might help is if you describe or show us your engagement/wedding rings. Do YOU think they are at risk of being overwhelmed? Do you want them to be noticed?

Haha, i feel you on that… everyone is tripping out because I plan to wear a watch at my wedding. I guess EVERYONE thinks that’s weird. I sort of did a middle ground, I got a nice little watch with a pearl strap to look more ‘bridal’ rather than wearing one of my nice ones… the point of the story being yes, definitely wear a RHR if that’s who you are. I do like the middle option the most, as it is a bit more subtle. good luck!

@rosiecotton: good point. The e-ring is a meteorite band about 4mm wide with a .37ct diamond in a half bezel rose gold setting. It also has ten rose gold inlays with little diamonds at the end of them – there’s one black diamond on the inside. The picture doesn’t really do it justice, but it’s hard to capture it! The wedding band will add another 2mm meteorite/rose gold/diamond ring to the mix, so it’s pretty chunky.
The thing is – i’m wearing a chunky pearl necklace too, it just seems like people will want to see the wedding band because it’s a wedding right? They won’t be BLINDED by the ring on my other hand… right? Maybe I just don’t really care if they’re noticed and I’m just thinking about my whole look. My mother is very traditional. I, on the other hand, am not.

The art deco one is LOVELY. The purple is nice too. The style of the smoky quartz would blend in too much IMO. I think if you’re going to wear a ring then WEAR THE RING (go all in don’t have it blend in). : ) What dress are you wearing btw?

It sounds beautiful 🙂 My engagement ring is not very big, and my wedding band won’t add much either (I like delicate jewellery). So in terms of an overall look I don’t know how much of a feature they’ll be anyway! Chances are the photographer will want to take arty photos of the wedding bands, and if anyone really wants to see them, they can come and ask. Even if you don’t wear a right hand ring, will the people at the back be able to see your wedding rings? So I say wear a chunky right hand ring and be happy!

@LuluInLove: Thanks! I think I should wear the ring too. My dress is the Wtoo Bristol Gown with the lining, not the see-through kind. We have a retro/vintage rustic southern theme going kind of by accident – rockabilly honky tonk band playing, lots of bourbon, red grey and white pallette, and i think the dress fits nicely but so would that art deco ring!! that one was my favorite!
Here’s the dress:
What do you think?
