My ring needs to be placed inside the band… the band can not just be slid on during the ceremony.
So, do I give the ring to my Fiance the night before or just wait and give it to him during the ceremony and have him place it in the band then slide it on my finger?

You could do either. I know around here it’s common to have your ring at the jewelers a few days before the wedding to ge them soldered, so this isn’t even an issue.
If you want to keep them separate, I’d either give it to him the night before or have a ‘runner’ to bring it to him after you do you getting ready the day of. That way there’s no awkward taking off-handing over-getting back going on up front…you may be nervous, that’s an extra pass to possibly drop 🙂 Hehe.

@indibee: great ideas. so true about the nerves.. I can see me now, dropping it and it rolling down the steps. i didnt think of having it soldered. Considering I wouldnt have a reason to wear it seperate, I think that is something i will look into.

Ours are the same way – we’re just having them soldered before the wedding instead of after. Seemed like less ways to screw it up at the alter.

My wedding isnt till august but I already have my engagement ring and my “gaurd” sautered together. I know I still have some months to go but its just one less worry. In your case, I would consider it getting sautered or if you guys are staying near eachother i.e. same hotel I would just have one of your bridesmaids or Mother-In-Law bring the ring to your Fiance.

For the sake of the ceremony i would just have him slide it on behind your engagement ring and put them on properly after the recessional. My sisters was the same way, and my BIL stood up there for a good five minutes trying to fit the two rings together, and a lot of the audience was confused.

I know that everyone in my family has just given the rings to the groom the day/night before, and during the ceremony the bride wears the engagement ring on her right hand so that the band can easily be put on the left hand ring finger without having to worry about the engagement ring. Then afterwards you can just put the engagement ring back onto your left hand and the band is still closest to your heart.
