Our best man had the rings.

I took my e-ring off and it was the ring we used in the ceremony (I opted for no wedding band).  H actually put them in his pants pocket in a pouch.

I have the same issue. The ring finger on my right hand is slightly bigger than my left and I am afraid of my finger swelling and not being able to get my ring off for pictures 🙁 The ring fits with some pushing and when my hand is nice and cool.

FI’s best man is his female best friend. She’s wearing a black gown and isn’t carrying a bouquet. Instead, I think I’m going to purchase a pouch for her to carry down the aisle with all of the rings inside. Something like this:

I wish I had given it to my matron of honour since I took it upon myself to yank the ring off my rhr finger (in front of all of the guests) at the front of the church just after we were married. Embarassed

Edited… didn’t see that your right hand was so much bigger!

I’d give it to your BM/MOH and she can hand it back to you with your bouquet after your vows? Or have ti with your wedding band and have your FI put both on at the same time.

@madteaparty:  You say you trust the BM but it kinda seems like you don’t trust anyone to hang onto them. Maybe you should tie them to a string around your own wrist if it is causing you that much stress.

@StaceyA:  that’s a good idea. give the e-ring to the MOH and the wedding band to the best man

My friend wore her ering during her ceremony and her husband just put the band over the ering. 
After the ceremony, she just switched them around

This is what I’m planning to do as well.  I figure that it won’t really matter that he puts in on one way and I switch it around after the recessional.

my right hand is much bigger too. I plan on just wearing my e-ring and having FI put my band on above it. I’ll just switch them after the wedding so the band is on first. i’m not super traditional though, so it’s up to you.

as for actually carrying the rings down the aisle, FI and I got inexpensive tungsten bands, so I don’t feel so bad about my little bro carrying them down the aisle.

I gave mine to my mom to wear during the wedding and got it back from her almost immediately after.

We gave our wedding bands to the officiant and we didn’t have a RB. I wore my engagement ring on my left hand during the ceremony and DH just popped the wedding band on top of the engagement ring during the ceremony. I get that the wedding band is supposed to be closest to your heart, but I figured the five minutes or whatever that it’s not won’t make a difference in the long run!
