you can wear it on your right hand.

I had my DH put it on together with the wedding band, because it doesn’t fit my right hand.

I wore my ering on my right hand through the ceremony and then switched it back a little later.

Mine’s going to go on my right hand, but it’s really up to you on what you want to do.

I think it’s all up to you! Some people wear their e-ring on their right hand (because the wedding band is supposed to go first on your finger, closer to your heart, aww!) and then after the ceremony put their e-ring back on their left hand. This is what I am going to do.

I also think some people give the ring to a family member/friend to hang on to during the ceremony and then they put it on after. Just go with whatever youre comfortable with!

I switched mine to my right hand for the ceremony. 

Some brides leave it on and the groom puts the wedding band on the “outside” of the e-ring, and they get swapped later. (My friend did this & joked that it was so her husband would remember which finger her band went on!)

Some brides don’t wear the engagement ring during the ceremony at all. (My understanding is that this option is sometimes motivated by religious or cutural traditions, in those cases neither the bride nor groom wear any jewlery – something about “not showing off wealth, because we aren’t marrying for monetary reasons.  Wealth has no bearing on this union.” – A different friend did this and explained her that as her reason.)

I was originally going to wear it on my right hand, but FH bought me a right hand ring he wants me to wear (matches a bracelet i’m planning on wearing) so I’m going to give it to my mom to hold on to and slip it on after the ceremony.

I wore it on its regular place on my left hand – I personally don’t understand the reasoning why not to.  My husband put my wedding band on my finger next to it, and after the ceremony, right before the pictures, I just flipped them around to put the band on first.  It took less than a second.

We did blessing of the ering after bands were exchanged. It was talked about how the ering got us to this point, it was a promise to marry, and now that it has been fulfilled, put it back on over the band so that the love that brought us to the alter continue to grow and sustain us in our marriage. Then he put my ering on.

I got a lot of comments about how beautiful it was from our guests.

@Birdee106:  lol yeah, my left ring finger is a size 3.5 and my right is a size 4. like I said in a PP, I just gave both rings for the ringbearer to carry with my DH’s ring and he put them both on.

@sarahbabs:  I did the same thing, but I forgot to tell DH what I had decided on so I confused him hahaha!

My e-ring doesn’t fit my right hand and it was just a quick swap after the ceremony but before the photos.

I kept my e-ring on my left hand like @sarahbabs:  .  I switched the band and the e-ring soon after that.

I wore mine. Mine doesn’t fit my right hand so my husband placed my wedding band on top and then I swapped the order of the rings after the ceremony. Only my husband and our officiant ever knew. 🙂

I also wore mine and kept it on my left finger.  Like Gemstone, my husband slipped the band on top and then I swapped the order of the rings later (though you can see in some of the photos that I forgot to switch them right away). 🙂 Worked out just fine!
