I’m getting my rings soddered together but we leave the next day for our honeymoon and after we get back we will be unpacking my stuff and organizing our apartment (I’m moving to his town). The jewelry store that we’ve worked with is an hour away (where I live right now) and I don’t think I’ll want to take the time to drive down and back while dealing with all the unpacking. Is it odd to get the rings soddered together before the ceremony?

The only reason its odd is because you would either have to wear both or neither up until the wedding. So if you are comfortable with one of those options, go for it.

I have been wondering this too so I’m interested to see what other girls have to say. I was planning to get them soldered together before the wedding and then wearing another ring on that finger until the wedding day. My wedding ring is curved to fit around my e-ring so they really shouldn’t be worn apart.

I’m currently not wearing any rings because I got both my e-ring and wedding band soldered together this past weekend. I feel weird without anything on my finger, but I’m looking forward to being able to wear them both. My FI has put them, along with his band, in a safe. I did notice that the rings seemed to fit a smidge smaller after being soldered together.

I’m going to get mine soldered before the wedding. I plan on wearing my great-grandmother’s engagment ring as a subsitute until the wedding day. I can’t imagine being without a ring on that finger anymore!

@lilybay I’m doing the exact same thing as you! Getting them soddered together before the wedding and wearing my great grandmother’s engagement ring on my ring finger 🙂

I didn’t get them soldered together but my mom’s are–they fit together like a puzzle. She got them soldered after her wedding, and i wanted to see if i wanted it or not (i’ve opted against it) but i’d probably just do it before, not wear it for the week leading up to the wedding, and wear the whole set on the day of

@Miss Peace: I’m not planning on doing it either, but some brides choose to do it to keep their rings together at all times because they plan to wear their rings together at all times (or at times, not at all). Basically, always worn as a “set.”

I forgot to mention that I did get them soldered together because they fit like a puzzle. Without them being soldered, one of the rings spins around the finger constantly. With a solitaire and a regular wedding band you most likely wouldn’t have to get them soldered because this wouldn’t be as much of an issue, I suppose.
