    I would wear the fancier one! You’ll be all dressed up anyway, and you can wear your e-ring on your right hand for the ceremony and then switch it to your left after you say your “I do’s”

    Plus, if you are going to have pics done, your photographer will probably want some shots with both of y’alls rings!

    Get your husband to place both bands on your finger on the wedding day and your ering on ur right until after then put your ering and blingy band on for after pics and the plain band on ur right. Then you can wear both wedding bands anytime and it will be your wedding band 🙂 make sense lol

    I would put on both rings during the ceremony! The extra two seconds isn’t going to ruin the day!

    @BrandNewBride:  +1. my FBIL and his wife has this problem. he had her ring guard, and she wore her ering down the aisle, then during the exchange of rings she took her ering off, he put it in the guard and slipped it back on. i’ve watched their video a couple times since, and you can barely even tell he’s doing it.

    @discokitty:  I have this same dilemma :-s

    I’m having a custom-made shaped diamond band which I will wear most of the time. I’m also having a plain, simple palladium band to wear when I’m not wearing my wedding set.

    At the moment, my options are:

    1) Tie the plain band onto my bouquet (it’s only costing $150 so not worried about security) so that it’s still present in the ceremony, and have OH place the custom band on my finger.

    Pros: I’ll be presented with the ring I will wear most often, and the plain band will still be part of the ceremony in a way.

    Cons: I want photos of just the wedding ring, and the shaped band looks very very odd on it’s own, so will look weird in photos.

    2) Have OH give the the plain band during the ceremony, and then put my diamond band and engagement ring on that finger just before the start of the evening reception.

    Pros: I’ll get the photos I want.

    Cons: It isn’t the band I’ll be wearing most.


    That’s probably not much help; but basically, I’m in the same situation and am totally torn. I was originally leaning towards 1), but now I’m starting to lean towards 2)… Urgh!
