What about having your husband slip both rings on your finger at the same time?

I wondered about this before my wedding, I was told to just wear it on my left hand like usual. When it came time for the rings during the ceremony, he simply slipped it off, put the wedding band on, and then put the engagement ring back on again. I’m not sure if this is the RIGHT way to do it, but it worked out fine for me!

Yeah, if you tied a ribbon of something that you were comfortable enough that it wasn’t going to get lost, but easy enough to get off quickly that would work.

Or get a bridesmaid to hang onto it.

I was always told to put it on your right hand.. which I will be doing. Both my future sister-in-laws did this as well. I’ve also heard of people just wearing it and having their fiance either take it off and then put it back on or having their mother hold onto it.

I’d be too nervous to attach it to my bouquet. I’d give it to the Maid/Matron of Honor or my mom to watch during the ceremony.

I had mine on my right and swapped it over when we were signing the license.  It really only took a few seconds.

I wore it as normal on my left hand during the ceremony, and switched the order of the rings afterwards.

I’m planning to have Fiance slip the wedding ring over the e-ring.  Then after the ceremony I’ll switch them so that the wedding ring is at the bottom.

My ring only fits on my left hand ring finger and is too small for my right…so I’ll probably just wear it for the ceremony like usually.

I read somewhere traditionally it is to be tied to the bouquet ( granted, I googled this over two years ago when I got married so maybe it’s not tradition and just what I read). And yes, my ring fell off the bouquet half way through the ceremony. There was a loud *PING* and then my sister calling me an idiot 🙂 I didn’t attach it very well because I was stressed and in a hurry.

I am going to have mine saudered (excuse the spelling) together before the wedding.  Though this isn’t tradion I really want it all together for the big day.

I left my engagement ring on my left hand, as normal.  My husband just slipped my wedding band on my left hand in front of it.  Right after the ceremony, we switched it so the wedding band was in the back.

We included ours as part of the ceremony. During the cermony I wore my e-ring on my right hand and after the traditional exchanging of the rings our minister read a little something about the meaning of the engagement ring and the promise that it holds and how that promise is filled, etc. Once he was done with that Darling Husband was promted to remove the ring from my right hand and place it on my left, over my wedding band. This was actually one of my favorite parts of the ceremony and also made it unique to us.
