I have 2 WBands… a plain & a sparkly.
Mr TTR didn’t want a ring at all (he’s not a Jewellery guy).
So we compromised…
First and foremost, I bought him a Wedding Watch*… that he wears whenever we go out (puts it on typically in the evening after work when he has his shower)
I knew pretty early on that I wanted two Wedding Bands… one plain & one sparkly.
This was because the sparkly ones looked best with my ERing… but having all this glitter on 24/7×365 just wasn’t practical for my lifestyle. Having a plain one meant I could have a ring to wear no matter what… Home Renovating – Painting – Deep Cleaning – Gardening – Scuba Diving / Snorkelling – and on our vacations to countries not as safe as Canada
Somewhere in the process of acquiring the two rings… it occurred to me, despite the fact that Mr TTR didn’t want to wear a ring… I still wanted HIS RING Receiving and the symbolism that goes with it… to be part of the ceremony.
So, we talked about and agreed that my plain ring during the Ceremony would be “HIS RING” and that it would therefore have more sentimental symbolism everytime I chose to wear it (and it would be blessed at the Wedding Ceremony etc)
During the Wedding Ceremony… we asked the Officiant to reverse our Vows (he saying his first)… so that I presented him with the ring first. Then when it was my turn, he used BOTH the Rings.
My Sparkly Ring was the primary ring… so it went onto my finger first… and it was the one that he slipped into place as he said the vow… while My / His Plain Ring sat quietly at the knuckle. When the vow was said, I slipped the plain ring down to meet the sparkly, and then my ERing I moved to my ring finger to “lock em in” place (traditional).
So at the end of the Ceremony… I was wearing all 3 Rings on the one finger in the more traditional line up of Wedding Band(s) closest to the heart… and ERing on the outside. **
Now, IF we hadn’t opted to use the Plain Band as Mr TTR’s Ring… I would have done virtuallly the same thing… he would have slipped both rings onto to my finger for the Vow, and probably for “convenience” just used the fartherst / prominent one to slip into place… bu the others still would have been on the ring finger at the same time.
Hope this helps,
EDIT TO ADD
* Wedding Watches… we gave each other Watches for our Wedding Present to one another. We put those on when we were getting dressed to go to the Wedding. Mr TTR likes to think of his Watch-band as ONE of his “Wedding Bands” as that is the one he wears most often
** With 2 WBands & an ERing I have lots of options in how I wear them / configuration… 1 ring alone, 2 together, all 3… mix & match. More often than not my preferred arrangement is Sparkly WBand with my ERing (traditional). OR the Plain Band alone (also a traditional look) and what I opt for when I am doing something where I don’t want to be all-a-glitter. For occasions somewhere in the middle, I opt for my Plain Band as the WBand, and the Sparkle one subs as my ERing (with or without my real ERing on my other hand as a RHRing). Also a nice look. And sometimes, when I am feeling really crazy… I stack em all 3 on the finger at once like they were given to me on my WDay.
