So Fiance and I have watched a million wedding shows and we recently started paying attention to the Bride and her e-ring.
What will you do with your e-ring?
wear on and then switch the wedding band later or wear it on the other hand?
Fiance wants me not to wear it so he can put them both on during the ceremony but for my pictures i want to wear my e-rings.

Hmm… I hadn’t really thought about pictures!
For the ceremony, I’d planned on switching the e-ring to my right hand and putting it on top of the band afterwards.

I am wearing my engagement ring during the ceremony because it is just a little too small for my right hand. After the ceremony, I’ll just switch them really quickly and no one will know that the wedding band wasn’t on the inside the whole time.

I wore mine on my right hand during the ceremony and switched it over secretly when we were signing our license.

I’m gonna let my Maid/Matron of Honor put it on her finger until the ceremony is over then I’ll put it on my finger.

great tips ladies! i think right before i walk down the aisle i might ask one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man to wear it i dont have a Maid/Matron of Honor (tear) and then ask her for it while i give her my flowers or something idk i wanted it to show as i walked down the aisle but i will probably be the only one paying attention that close to the pictures LOL

I asked my officiant to include my e-ring in the ceremony (I got the idea from another bee). So, when it comes time for the ring exchange, I’ll secretly hand her my e-ring, then FH will put the band on, then there will be a little extra part to the ceremony where he puts my e-ring back on my finger.

@Goldilocks1107 – Yeah, we’re doing it as part of our ceremony as well. My e-ring will be with the wedding bands (on the ring bearer’s pillow), and there will be a little part after the ring exchange where Fiance will place my e-ring on my finger, over my band.

I never really thought about this until recently. My ring doesn’t fit on my right hand 🙁 So I think that I am going to have my sister (MOH) wear it until after the ceremony. Then I will put it on over my e ring. Or I am going to have my sister hand it off to the best man so that he will give my Fiance my wedding band and my ering.

@ MS.caniche my e-ring doesnt fit on my right hand either that is why i was like what else could i do. MY Fiance doesnt like the idea of switching the ring because he wants the wedding ring to be close to my heart blah blah blah….this one is a toughy

I’m planning on putting it on my right hand right before the ceremony starts, then FH will put the WB on, and I’ll switch it back to the left hand after the ceremony.

I’m going to wear mine as normal, then switch the order right after the ceremony, no one will ever know the difference. By the way, my e-ring is too big for my right hand too.

1. I wore my Engagement Ring on my left hand ring finger and just had Darling Husband place my wedding band over it during the ceremony. Right after the ceremony was over, I just switched them. I had planned to wear my Engagement Ring on my right hand, but then Darling Husband surprised me with my “Something Blue” ring that I wore on my right hand.
2. Just something to think about if you are having wedding pics done before the ceremony… I had a friend who had nearly all her pics done before the wedding ceremony (as did I). In almost 90% of her pictures, neither of them have their wedding bands on and it REALLY bothers her that she forgot to put on the rings for the pictures. It was a really good piece of advice because, although it feels weird in the moment, you will want to look back on those pictures as your wedding day pictures and hopefully will be wearing your rings no matter what time in the day they were taken. 🙂
