Someone told me you’re supposed to wear your e-ring on your right hand the day of the wedding, leaving your ring finger bare for the wedding ring during the ceremony. I’ve never heard of this tradition. Is it a must? My wedding ring finger is a 4 1/2 and my right hand finger is almost 6 after fracturing it years ago so there’s no way I can fit my e-ring on it. :/ How will you/ did you wear your e-ring on your wedding day??

Well my dear, if the e-ring doesn’t fit on your right hand, then it’s not a must for you! Don’t worry – I don’t think it’s a huge deal. Just do what works for you! But I have heard of many brides putting the e-ring on the right hand for the ceremony. I will do it.

@Frukaj: I think its just so that you don’t have to fumble while taking it off to put your wedding band on. Why not:
- Have your Maid/Matron of Honor hold it during the ceremony and put it on right after
- Wear it on a necklace and then put it on after
- Pin it to the inside of your dress and then put it on after
- Wear the ering on you ring finger, have him put on the wedding band and then switch them after the ceremony

I am doing it too just because it is convenient. I don’t think it’s a must though. You could put it back on at the same time than your wedding ring. Or not wear it at all.

I wore my e-ring on my right hand for the ceremony, so that Darling Husband could put the wedding band on my bare left finger. Then immediately after the ceremony, I put the e-ring back on. (It’s the order it’s supposed to go on your hand, so I did it for simplicity’s sake).
I would take it off for the ceremony, but I don’t think wearing on the other hand is a must at ALL – if it won’t fit on your other hand, maybe just have your Maid/Matron of Honor hold it during the ring exchange, and put it right back on your left hand!

Okay, thanks ladies. Didn’t realize there was an order you’re supposed to wear them in.

@Frukaj: The wedding band goes “closest to your heart” because the marriage is supposed to be a bigger deal than the engagement. Some people wear them in the other order though, and a lot of people wear a third ring on that finger too.

Since I knew I wanted mine soldered together, I just got that done a few days before the wedding, so my hand was bare but when Fiance put on my wedding band he was putting the e-ring back on too. But you can always leave your e-ring on, then just switch the order after the ceremony is over.

My left ring finger is size 3.75, and my right is 4.25, so my Maid/Matron of Honor will be wearing my e-ring on her pinky finger for the ceremony, and I’ll put it back on before the receiving line.

I was just planning on keeping it on my left hand because I always wear my original e-ring on my right. I’ll just switch the rings around after the ceremony.
