I am kind of new to this whole thing but I had a question for the Bees who took first look pictures and pics with their SO’s before the ceremony. Did he wear his wedding ring for the pictures before you guys were married?
I know this seems like an insignificant detail but I have been wondering about this for a little while. I would like for him to wear the ring for pictures but I am not sure since we techincally won’t be married. I actually haven’t talked about this particular detail with my financee but I feel he wouldn’t care either way.
Thanks for all your help!

I feel like just for pics it would be ok. I wouldn’t wear it anywhere else

softsunnset: I would rather wait until I am married so that moment when we slip the rings on our finger is special. Your photographer can take pics of the rigs themselves before the wedding and easily enough take pics of the wedding rings on your hands after the ceremony.

softsunnset: We’re doing first look photos, and we plan to wear our wedding bands for some of the photos. Those photos are, after all, wedding portraits. For us, nothing could detract from the exhilarating moment of exchanging rings in front of our family and friends. YMMV.

We took some pics before, some pics after. We didn’t wear our wedding rings beforehand – it didn’t even occur to me. My very favorite photo is from before and if you look closely, you can see he doesn’t have a ring… but it took me like 6 months to realize that and I really don’t care whatsoever. Ultimately, I just don’t think it’s a big deal and it’s not noticeable at all unless your hands are a focal point of the shot.
But if he doesn’t care and you would prefer to, go for it.

softsunnset: If you want him to, then do it! (As long as hes on board, of course)
For us: I think it’d be weird if FI didnt have a ring on. He has worn a promise ring for the past 6 years on his right hand. My parents think the day before the wedding that he should put it in the safe, only for safe keeping (because he would look silly wearing that ring + the wedding ring). Yet FI feels weird without a ring. So definitely a good point to think about! I think FI will likely wear his wedding badn for pics.

softsunnset: I did a first look, and my husband didn’t wear his ring for it. I actually didn’t even think about it!

Thanks for everyones input! I actually talked about it with Fiancee today and he doesn’t think he wants to wear it before the ceremony, which I understand. Basically he said, what does it change like 2 pixels? And like everyone said, it is a minor detail and in the big scheme of things I don’t think it matters much. Thanks again! and have a great weekend everybody!
