    I have my rings attached together now.  They are sort of tight at times because of the way they are attached but I like that they don’t rub each other.

    For my second wedding, we did without e-rings, which resolved the issue for us.  For the first one, we followed Jewish tradition in which the wedding ring is initially put on the bride’s right index finger, instead of the left ring finger.  Thus, I just left my e-ring on my left ring finger during the ring ceremony, and later switched the rings around so that the e-ring and wedding band were in their proper positions on the left ring finger.

    My friend kept her e-ring in place on her left hand for the ceremony and as soon as she walked back down the aisle, she flipped the order of the rings to the proper way.

    And they are not saudered, because she likes to be able to wear just her band if her ring is being cleaned or when travelling, etc, when you maybe wouldn’t want to wear all the bling 🙂

    I honestly don’t know many people who have their rings saudered.

    I really want my rings saudered together.  At first I thought it was an old-fashioned trend because no one on here is doing it, and I rarely see someone in real life with their rings saudered.  But I also look at other girls’ rings a lot and I notice that their rings are always spinning around!  That would drive me batty!!  I am definitely getting them saudered but I’m not sure if I’ll do it pre-wedding or post.  I have an extra ring to wear on that finger in the interim.  I will probably end up doing it before the ceremony.

    I don’t know anyone with their rings saudered. My cousins just wore their ering on their left hand during the ceremony and switched them around after they got down the aisle.

    i could never sauder my rings b/c my ering is a family diamond and i’ll be passing it on, without my wedding band. i just put it on my right hand for the ceremony and switched it right after.

    J will just slip the wedding ring on top of my e-ring, and then I’ll swap them later. 🙂 No right hand necessary.

    I’m tentatively planning to have them soldered together after the wedding, although our jeweler doesn’t want me to, because he’s convinced everyone needs to upgrade their ring at least once, and soldering them together makes that a LOT harder. I don’t think I’ll want to upgrade though… I can’t imagine not wanting to wear the ring J picked for me!

    I wore my e-ring on my right hand at the ceremony, he put the wedding band on my left and then i moved the e-ring back to the left after the ceremony.  I don’t plan to attach them together because I want the option of wearing the band without the e-ring.  We go camping a lot and to music festivals and outdoor concerts and stuff, so i want to have a wedding band but don’t necessarily want to wear my diamond around at places like that!

    I will not solder my rings together.

    For the ceremony I will wear the e-ring on my right hand, he’ll put the wedding band on my left, then we’re inserting a phrase into the ring exchange that simply asks him to move my e-ring to my left hand, honoring its symbolism as the “original promise” we made and that it will serve as a reminder of that promise as we continue in our marriage.

    It’s untraditional, I suppose, but I never liked the concept of secretly moving my e-ring afterwards. Everyone knows we have an e-ring and a band, so why not acknowledge it and make it a meaningful part of the ceremony? That’s the plan, anyway.
