Is there any bees who just have one ring that represents both the engagement and wedding ring? I was wondering if I should just have one for both. Or is there anyone who thinks that two rings are important? I’m alittle torn on both ideas.

I have a couple friends who just wear their engagement ring even though they’re married. It’s no big deal. Every once in a while they get asked when the wedding is, so some people must assume that they’re engaged but not married. If that would bother you, then 2 rings would be smart. otherwise, whatever you want!

@buggaboo6: YES! I have only one ring by choice.
I was proposed to with a lovely 6 mm band with 95 diamonds. It’s what I picked out.
For the wedding day, I took off my ring, gave it to him before we parted ways. For the ceremony, we put it back on during the ring exchange part. So we both entered the ceremony ringless, and left the ceremony with rings on.
We did not choose to say anything like “This ring was a promise and now the ring represents promises being fulfilled” which is something you can do if you want. We went with “what this ring represents…” kind of verbage.
I had a few people say, “Let me see!” in regards to my hand after the wedding. I said it’s the same ring as before, I just wanted one ring. My ring is so different that I don’t think people realize it’s a wedding ring (which is what I call it, not a e-ring, not a wedding band, just wedding ring).
I prefer it much more. I never understood the whole 2 ring idea anyway.
