I plan on wearing my ering on my right hand that day. I will wear my wedding band only for a little while then probably put them together later (they are totally different rings and don’t match at all).

Holy crap that ring is awesome!  Love it!

Anyway, yeah lots of people wear their e-rings on the right during the ceremony.  I’ll be wearing my wedding band together with my e-ring when I’m married, but I’m still wearing my e-ring on the other hand on my wedding day.

What a beautiful ring! And how very thoughtful of your FI! Typically, brides will wear their engagement ring on their right hand ring finger during the ceremony, so that the wedding band may be easily slipped on to your left hand. After the ceremony, you could probably move the rings around if you’d like. It’s really up to you, though.

@SloaneRose:  First of all, I really love your set — not “matchy-matchy,” which I LOVE!!  

There are no real “rules” about how to wear your ering on your wedding day, but traditionally you would simply wear your ering on your right hand, so that your groom can place your wedding ring on your left.  Then after the ceremony, you place your ering above your new wedding ring.  🙂

I intend on wearing my grandmother’s wedding set on my right hand the day of the wedding, so I’ll probably end up wearing the engagement ring on my left hand as usual, but discretely slipping it off before my fiance puts my wedding band on, then putting my engagement ring back in place right after.

It’s up to you. You can move you engagement ring to your right hand or just leave it on your left. I kept it on my left and my husband just slid the wedding band on. Right after the ceremony, I reversed the rings so the wedding band was closer to my hand.

I am thinking of wearing my ering one finger over on my left hand until after he puts the ring on my finger. I’ll switch it over almost immediately. I’m intent on wearing my ND ring on my right hand for my something blue.

I meant to wear it on my right hand, but like many people I know, I forgot.  The wedding band was just placed on after the e-ring during the ceremony and I switched them after.  Seems to be fairly common amoung my friends.

I chose not to wear my e-ring at all.

I’m leaving my ring on my ring finger and he’ll just slip the band on, I plan on leaving it that way.

I kept my e-ring on my left, and my DH placed the wedding band on the left. Then when we were signing the certificate I switched them around to keep the band closer to me. You could do similar or just have your e-ring on the right. It’s up to you, and I know brides go either way!
