First, I have a possibly weird question about rings.
So, now I’m wearing an engagement ring, and the ring comes with a thin metal “band” so I guess it’s a set. Here is a picture where you can see the thin metal band right under the actual engagement ring. I only wear the ring right now, not the band.
So, during the ceremony, how does this work? Do I already have my engagement ring on and he puts the thin metal band onto my finger? Or do I not have anything on my finger and he puts both my engagement and the metal band on my finger at the same time? From then on do I wear the band and the ring together always? I tried on the ring and band before and I don’t like wearing it together because they always shift around and since they are not perfectly straight (they have that notch near the front, it must line up or it’ll look weird). Or do I need to buy a separate wedding band? If so, I don’t know how it’ll fit next to my engagement ring since it’s got the notch in front?
Also, when during our wedding the photographer takes all those “ring pictures” – do they take pictures of just the band (of which mine is just a skinny metal ring), or the band and engagement ring together?

For the ceremony… most people wear their e-ring on their right hand and then add it on top of the wedding band afterwards. But it’s really up to you.
Again most people will wear both rings together after that, but some will not always wear their e-ring, or switch the e-ring to the other hand. Because your rings are notched together I would actually suggest you have them soldered togetherso that they stay in place and don’t move around. I don’t think a normal straight wedding band would sit right next to your e-ring but you might want to buy another wedding band to wear if you don’t want to wear your e-ring everyday…
With regards the photographs, usually you would wear both rings together as a set, but again it’s completely up to you!
Hope that helps

I totally agree with the soldering of the rings together. If you would rather have your Fiance present you with a more substantial ring at the ceremony, you can have the rings solder before, so that he puts the entire thing onto your finger, or he can put them both on together.
I was planning on wearing my engagement ring on my right hand during the ceremony and than replace it after our nuptials.
