So I’m just wondering which finger you are all choosing to wear your Engagement Ring and wedding bands on? Where I live (Ireland) everyone wears them on their left hand (men and women) but the other day one of my close friends told me that most other countries wear them on the right hand.
i am missing three fingers on my left hand which means I can only wear my rings on my right. Something which has never been an issue at all, but I just had a thought – when we marry, my Fiance will be wearing his on his left and I’ll have mine on my right….. (It never occurred to me before)
do you think couples should match and wear them on the same hands? Do you/ will you wear yours on the same hand as SO?

In America we usually wear them on the left hand ring finger. But it’s totally up to the couple if they want to wear them on the same finger and hand. But since you’re missing fingers I’d say that you should talk to your SO about it if it makes you uncomfortable.

We’ll both wear our rings on our left hands (and my engagement ring and wedding ring were made to go together in a swirl pattern). A couple of months ago I saw a couple that had a ring that lit up when it was near a bracelet the other partner wore. If you’re wearing your rings on your right hand, and your fiance will have his on his left, whenever you hold hands the rings will be together – I like it!

My fiancé seriously thought that the engagement ring moved to the right hand once you get the wedding band on the left. Whilst this is probably true in some countries, we live in England and 99.9% of us wear both rings on the left hand.

When you and your husband hold hands your rings will just touch for a moment. How romantic!

Haven’t heard of a such thing and never knew these rules existed in other countries.
Will be wearing my engagement ring and wedding band on the left hand. Would feel weird to me if it was 1 on each hand.

I think it’s up to you! If you want him to wear it on a matching finger then try that 🙂 Otherwise, I don’t think there’s any problems with it not matching.
In the US we wear engagement rings and wedding bands together on the left hand.

I’m Polish and everyone here wears wedding ring on their right hands. After wedding woman usually takes the engagement ring ( If she’ got one -not common in here) to left hand. I wear my ering on right hand but when we get married I’ll we wearing an engagement ring and a wedding band on my right hand together – that’s pretty unusual here and my friends are rather sceptical about it but I love it that way.
