I got my second band blessed after the wedding one random Sunday.  Our priest just blessed it after church.

I feel like it might have been a bit confusing and unweildy to have the extra ring there that day.

The last wedding I was at, they blessed the bride and groom’s wedding bands and the engagement ring, so I don’t see why they wouldn’t bless a second band for you.

I know a bride who had two wedding bands (she wanted her ring to be symmetrical, so she had one for each side), and they treated them as if they were just one band (blessed both, then her husband slid both on her finger). You could do the same thing!

@Mo_Light:  I’d talk to your priest.  You may not need the third band blessed at the ceremony. You don’t need to wear your band all the time, and you can also get a new band blessed after the ceremony.  My Dad’s wedding ring has been wearing pretty thing after being married for over 30 years, so my Mom bought him a new band for Christmas.  I believe all he had to do to get it blessed was to talk to the priest after Mass.  I’m sure its no different than blessing a religious medal or a rosary.

I think you should feel free to get your other rings blessed before OR after the big day but if it helps we are getting my engagement ring and both of my wedding bands (top and bottom wrap) blessed on our wedding day, in addition to FI’s wedding band.

@Mo_Light:  I’m pretty sure the priest will just say one prayer over the rings, so you can have them all with you and he can bless them all together. Whether you want to juggle extra rings is up to you. Once I had a priest bless 20 candleholders for a service, and he didn’t have to say a different prayer for every ring. But if you want, the priest could bless it any time before or after the ceremony. Looking back, I’ve ambushed priests many times to have them bless things for me. They seem to be pretty happy whenever I ask, so I think they don’t mind.
