@krex:  I think leaving it on is pretty normal! I plan to wear mine.. he will just slip the band on over the ering. Then after the ceremony I will switch them.

@krex:  I didn’t take mine off for the ceremony, but I didn’t plan to either.  DH put my wedding band on top of my Ering and then I just swapped them after the ceremony was over.  I wouldn’t worry, I think you’re overthinking it!

I remembered literally less than a minute before walking down the aisle!

But I know a lot of Bees are planning/planned to leave theirs on during the exchange!

I wore my e-ring on my right hand.

@krex:  I almost forgot (actually, we almost forgot a lot of things! Haha)

It was the first time my e-ring had been off my finger since the engagement (for an extended time — I’d had it cleaned once), and I wanted to do it that way so when Darling Husband put my wedding band on I would never have to take it off 🙂

I don’t plan to get a wedding band, I really don’t like the bulky look on my little fingers, so I’m definitely taking my Engagement Ring off, and then it will turn in to my wedding ring

Mine were already soldered together so I had no choice but to take them off lol.

… I didn’t know I have to take it off!?!?!?!


I’m planning to wear my e-ring and let my Fiance put the wedding band on top of it.  I don’t want to risk losing my e-ring.  I just have to remind myself to bring my e-ring for professional cleaning the day before big day to make sure it shine~!!!

I’ll be wearing mine on my right hand and switching it over as soon as I can.

I’ve actually been wondering about this and what we would do for our ceremony! Very interesting.

I switched hands for my first wedding and if I remember I will do the same for this one.

This is honestly something I never would have thought of!

Meh, I wore mine for our ceremony. On purpose. My e-ring doesn’t fit my right hand and I didn’t want to take it off entirely, so I just wore it as normal. My husband placed my wedding band “on top” of my e-ring during our ceremony, and then I made a quick switch after the ceremony so they were in the right order. It wasn’t a big deal at all to wear it!

I’m planning on doing it on purpose.  I’m already engaged, I love me ring, and I would feel weird not wearing it at my wedding.  I’m just going to put the wedding band on top of the ering in the ceremony and switch them out later.  I think that is pretty common.  That’s what my mom did and others I know (though certainly others do remove it).  That being said, I really doubt it looked stupid to anyone!
