I have NO idea why this randomly popped in to my head but nevertheless! I’m interested to know how people kept their wedding bands safe before exchanging them during your ceremony?
FI’s brother will most likely hold on to them which is fine, but i’m interested to know how this person at your wedding kept them safe.. did they keep them in a box together, seperate boxes, loose in their pocket? I don’t particuarly want them just floating around together (my wedding band will have diamonds so I don’t want FI’s band getting scratched) but I feel like it would be totally impracticle to have his brother carry around two seperate boxes!
Any advice on my silly first world problem would be much appreciated 😉

I kept ours with me in their separate boxes the entire time before the ceremony. I carried a small clutch with me and they fit perfectly. Come ceremony time I gave my husband’s ring to my MoH. She kept the box in the pocket of her dress and I had my bridesmaid give my ring box to DH’s Best Lady. All worked out well for us.

Miss_E_xx: The box that DH’s ring came in was designed to fit the bride’s ring also. We gave them to our best man at the rehearsal (I had them and wasn’t seeing them again until I walked down the aisle) and he kept them safe.

We’re a year out and already have our rings – we’re wearing each other’s band around our neck everyday up until the point of exchange. I hated the thought of them sitting in the house and this way the exchange is more special to us. It means no ornate necklace for me at the wedding but I’ll make it work!

We actually wore ours the day of to keep them safe and because we were doing a first look and wanted them in those pictures. We handed them to our best man immediately before the ceremony and he put one in each pocket.

We put them both in one box and held on to it until the ceremony. As we were lining up, he gave the box to our ring bearer. That way there was no concern about losing them.

Miss_E_xx: We did a ring blessing and passed them around the room for people to put their good vibes on them. But we had a very small ceremony, 15 people.

My husband kept the rings until our wedding day. Then, the wedding planner gave my Matron of Honor my husband’s ring right before the ceremony and she wore it on her thumb until ring exchange. My Father In Law (my Husband’s best man) kept my ring in his pocket until ring exhange. There were no real rings on the ring bearer’s pillow. My Maid/Matron of Honor did the same for her wedding.
