No, it’s not wrong at all. I am not a jewelry person (or at least I wasn’t) but I really like having both rings… they’re almost always going to be the only jewelry I wear. But the great thing is you can do whatever you want. 😉 If you and your FH agree on it, in fact, you can not wear any ring at all!

Of course not!

I have never heard of someone doing this but I think it is nice – you could get the wedding date engraved into the engagement ring!

I have heard of people getting bands as their engagement ring and then using it at the wedding ceremony as well!!!

You can do whatever you want!!!!!

If your FI is not ok with this, another idea is to get a simple wedding band but don’t wear both at the same time.  You could alternate between bands. If you feel fancy one day, wear your e-ring, if you want something more simple wear your wedding ring.  Just a thought.

No, my ring from my previous marriage was all alone.  It was a weird shape and we never found anything to go with it.

My engagement ring is going to become my wedding ring because I can’t find a band I like to go with it. So I will just wear one and that is totally fine.

I also am not a big jewelry person, plus I have small stubby fingers and rings don’t look that great on my hands. So I also opted for having only one ring. I find it difficult enough remembering my one ring, I personally would go crazy with another on the same finger.

I personally don’t think there is anything wrong with it.

My FI and I are not exchanging rings.  He doesn’t like to wear jewelry at all and I don’t want to wear two rings (I don’t really like to wear a lot of jewelry either).  So, we agreed not to get rings.  We were going to use some cheapy rings in the ceremony for the symbolism, but decided that they are not, in fact, symbolic to us.  It doesn’t make sense to us to talk about their symbolism and then not wear them.  So, we just pulled the ring part from the ceremony.  People at the ceremony will probably notice and be confused, but I don’t care.

Not at all, just use your engagement ring.

I think it’s just fine. I’m considering this as well because my E ring setting doesn’t really allow another ring to set with it. My one concern, however, is that people might think I’m not married (my e-ring is a garnet instead of a diamond, so a lot of people don’t even know i’m engaged now). I know what other people think doesn’t matter, but I kinda see a big point of the ring being the public statement involved with it, so I don’t really want to lose that.
