@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 DH 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 E-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 FI 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!
