So I spun this thread after reviewing the “rings on things” post that someone made to post photos of your ring on anything at home.
It got me thinking about the Day Of… The rings are supposed to be with the Best Man, but he wont have my e-ring (I’m sorry I’m not giving up my e-ring!) and he wont have the flowers etc at his place.
Do I keep the rings with me for the getting ready photos when the Photographer can take all those pretty shots and then have a BM give the rings back to the Best Man at the church? Or what do I do?
I know this sounds silly but it just struck me…

Hmm…I’m curious to know, too! We might be doing ring pics after the ceremony so I guess that would make it easier for us.

- Wedding: March 2014 - Glen Sanders Mansion
@Elky: Our photographer will be taking those pictures before the ceremony and everything. I’ll have all of the rings. We are doing a first look, and our priest actually suggested that we put our wedding rings on for those pictures, so I will likely put my wedding ring on and have my MOH bring FI his wedding band before we do the first look (and after the ring pics have been taken!).
So yes, you should have the rings and then have a BM give the rings to the Best Man

Most of the time I show up and all the rings are with the bride. I will take the rings and do some shots before the ceremony, but really it depends on time and how much we have. Generally someone will give the BM the ring right before the ceremony. Dinner is our downtime. It’s when we take a brake to change batteries, eat, get reorganized, etc. Beacuse we don’t really shoot during dinner (guests HATE being photographed eating) we’ll take the rings then and use that time do the the awesome ring detail shots.

@starfish0116: My vendors are all getting the normal meal the guests are so I’m not sure how much “up and about” time he’ll have (Plus my 1 must have is a shot of each course, I do that in my everyday life when I eat fancy-food so I really want that of my wedding food!)
But I guess I could just ask him about it?

Our photographer took our ring photos during dinner… we were sitting down, not going anywhere, so she snuck up and borrowed them for 5 minutes. She got some beautiful shots of them!
As for before the ceremony, I wore my engagement ring, and my MOH had the groom’s ring. BM had my band (it was dropped off to the boys as they were getting ready by my brothers who were ushers and running around for us in the morning).

@Elky: I usually do them during dinner. I’ll do it before if the bride happens to have all the rings, but usually, they don’t.
ETA: saw your update about wanting them to take food shots. Taking the rings is a really quick photo. They will not need to take as much time to eat as your guests (I’d be a little PO’d if my photog did that). They can eat and then get back to work.
