I wore it and my husband put my wedding band on top on my engagement ring. Before taking pictures and after the ceremony I switched it so my wedding band was closest to my heart.

Mine were soldered together so I didn’t wear anything. I could have worn my stand in ring on my right hand but it was rose gold and all my other jewelry was white gold, so I just kept it in my clutch.

I wore mine on my left ring finger. Once Darling Husband put my wedding ring on my hand, I pretty much immediately switched my rings so that the wedding band was on the inside and the ering was on the outside.

Arodef:  I wore my engagement ring and my husband just pushed the band on top of the engagement ring.  I wore it like that for a month until someone told me you’re supposed to wear it the other way and switched them.

Like many other PP, I wore mine on my right hand and then slipped it on my left after we exchanged rings. My girlfriend, who got married shortly after me, wore her engagement ring on her left finger (because it didn’t fit on her right) and then just flipped the rings after the ceremony.

I wore my engagement ring on my left hand as usual and switched the bands after the ceremony. I had contemplated wearing it on my right hand, but my something old and borrowed was a ring that I wore on my right ring finger.

Arodef:  The morning of the wedding I gave my engagement ring to my hubby to look after. he carried it in his jacket pocket next to his heart. he put the wedding band on my finger during the ceremony and then after signing the register he put my engagement ring on me to complete my set.

I’m planning on doing same as PPs and wearing as a RHR until after the ceremony

I would wear it on my right hand if it wasn’t bigger than my left. I might attach it to my bouquet for the ceremony.

Arodef:  I had a RHR I was already wearing on my ring finger, so the plan was to give my engagement to either Fiance or my sister to hold onto during the ceremony- but time slipped away and I forgot- so I was wearing in during the ceremony.  It really wasn’t that big of a deal to me.

I wore mine. My Darling Husband put the wedding band in front of it at our ceremony. Later, I switched them so that the band was on the inside. No big deal.

I was going to wear my e-ring on my right hand for the ceremony but completely forgot on the day of! So it turned out I wore my e-ring for the ceremony, and just switched them (so my wedding band was under my e-ring) when the best man/MOH were signing the registry 🙂

Pollywog:  Haha, so did mine!  Even after I whispered, “other hand” he was still like, “no, it’s this one…” haha.  I never even thought to mention it to him, so good advice.
