I am not really sure, but maybe you could tie it with a skinny ribbon to your bouquet. I am sorry, but that is the only suggestion I can come up with.

I wore my husband’s on my thumb during the ceremony. No one even noticed because I was holding my bouquet until came time for the ring exchange. I had several family members and friends tell me this is what they have done or have heard of others doing.

@noritake22: Actually that’s a really cute suggestion!!!

I mean, really he could hold both and when the time comes, he hands you his.  But, I really like tying it onto the bouquet better …. that’s really a great idea!

If it isn’t too big to fit on your thumb, I like that idea a lot.

You and your Fiance can both give the bands to the minister beforehand (or give to your DOC to give to the minister).  If it’s just going to be the two of you, there’s really no reason to make a big production out of giving the rings to the minister during the ceremony.  He can just pull them both out of his pocket at the appropriate time.

I’ll definitely be wearing his on my thumb! What a cute suggestion!

I wore my husband’s ring on my thumb and he wore mine on his pinky. When we got to the ring part, our officient kind of got a kick out of the fact that we each had the other’s ring. It worked out really well – and I liked the symbolism that we were each wearing the rings when we said our vows, and then exchanged them during the ring part.

Also, logistically, it worked better too. My husband wore a kilt (no pockets) and though he wore a sporran in front, I didn’t think it would look good to have him digging around in there during the ceremony!

Your elopement sounds lovely!

Probably too late, but my Maid/Matron of Honor kept my hubby’s ring and the best man kept my ring. It’s a good responsibility for them to have. As if you don’t have enough to remember during the ceremony! This seems to be the ongoing tradition where i’m from.
