    @RobotBabooshka:  I think I’m going to wear it on my right hand, then switch it over after the ceremony (on top of the wedding ring)

    I was planning on having it on my right hand but it was so hot it wouldn’t fit. So he just ended up putting the band on top.

    @RobotBabooshka:  No right or wrong way. I don’t think there’s even a single tradition on this because I’ve seen it done all the ways you listed. Do whatever feels best for you.

    I wore it on my right hand and then switched after the ceremony. BUT, I think the best man holding both the rings is a really great idea. i wished I had thoght of that. It is nice to see my engagement ring in our actual ceremony pictures though. Even though it is on the wrong hand…

    I had both rings held by the ringbearer and both were put on at the same time 🙂

    I wore mine on my right hand (pinky finger, as it didn’t fit on my right ring finger).

    First time round… (and this time when it happens)

    I’ll be wearing my E-Ring on my right hand… and then just transfer it over.

    You are not alone in this Question on what to do… I answered a similar Question yesterday.  As I suggested then, if you do give your rings to someone else, you will want to ensure that they make their way up the aisle safely

    With a ring bearer, that typically involves lacing them onto a pillow… with the Bestman or Groom it might be best to consider a ring box.  They make double ring boxes (if you don’t already own one) and they can be gotten from any Jewellery Store

    My wedding band is a ring guard so I will have to have the best man holding both in place.  However, if I had a band I would leave the engagement ring on and have the wedding band placed over.  I have seen it worn either way but I hate to feel naked with out the ring o my left hand.  I see it as you promise to be married ( e-ring on ) to being married ( wedding band on too) taking the e-ring off almost is a step backwards rather then forward.

    I’ve been married twice and both times the wedding band went on with the engagement ring already on my left hand and then I switched them soon after, but I’ve had friends wear theirs on the right hand and then move it to the left after the ceremony. I personally would not want to not wear my ring to the wedding. It just seems weird to take off your engagement ring to walk down the aisle.
