    I switched my engagement ring to my right hand right before the ceremony and then put it on my left (right above my wedding band) right after the ceremony.

    I wore my engagement ring on my right hand and immediately slipped it back to my left finger after the ceremony.

    On my wedding day my engagement ring will be with the wedding rings.  They will be washed and cleansed by my celebrant and then when my partner puts my wedding ring on my finger, he will then put the engagement ring on top of it as the celebrant says something about the engagement ring sealing the bond that was started when he proposed.

    Before the ceremony i moved my e-ring to my right hand so my left hand only had my wedding band. After we signed our papers i moved my e-ring back to my left, below my wedding band!

    @Gemstone: This is what I did.  My rings were meant to be worn together.

    @Gemstone… I did the same thing. I had meant to put my Engagement Ring on my right hand but completely forgot about it in the hustle bustle of the day. So Darling Husband slipped it the wedding band on top of my Engagement Ring, and I switched them in the right order after the ceremony.


    Now I’m happy we did it the way we did it – the rings are a set in my mind too!

    I’m not married yet but I will wear my e-ring on my right ring finger during the ceremony and then immediately afterwards switch it to the left, on top of my wedding ring. I don’t plan to have any pictures taken of it alone.

    My plan (obviously still quite a ways away!) is to do the same as @Gemstone. My e-ring and band are meant to lock together, and plus, we spent a lot on my e-ring + I love it so I want them both!

    Engagment ring on right hand.  Slipped it onto my left after we officially married.  It was a Catholic ceremony so I had time.
