    Yes it is, and I wouldn't do this.

    I have heard of this, but don't believe in superstition

    I have never heard of this

    I am wearing my wedding band/FI is before the ceremony-whats the big deal?

    I’m wearing my wedding band right now in place of my engagement ring because my engagement ring is being worked on for a month and I didn’t want a bare finger. I don’t see it as bad luck at all.

    My cousin’s fiance is doing it, and it drives me nuts!  It is called a wedding band, meaning you shouldn’t wear it until after the wedding, when you are married.  I think it takes something away from when you put it on his finger at the wedding.

    We just got mine and I wore it for a week.  The jeweler said wear it around for a while to see if you want it resized.  I don’t see the big deal.  It actually helped me since I DO need it resized to feel comfortable for daily wear.

    I’ve never heard of it being bad luck, but I would still wait until being actually married before wearing the ring. Technically, you’re not married yet!

    So my fiancé and I have been together for six years… We’re actualily exchanging vows the day before our seventh. So, I’ve technically been giving away the milk for free, he’s been giving his dough away putting a roof over the cow’s head while she’s in school… Oh, and should I mention we are actually going to Vegas/roadtrippong for the honeymoon? 

    So, I don’t think wearing the ring around the house is really going to hurt anything. No different than dressing up in a costume before Halloween – if Halloween is really your thing… Like NBC style. He just tried his on, and before today I haven’t worn mine either, but today I just felt like it.

    We tried them on after they came back from the jewelers to make sure they were sized correctly. But never wore them for extended periods of time. I would put mine on every once in a while before the wedding just for fun , but to my memory I do not think my husband it. Maybe he is a little superstitious and I just don’t know it.

    I get that we shouldn’t really wear it because you’re not married yet but my fiancé and I have been dating for 6 years and we already feel like we’re married so we wear our rings. Our wedding won’t be for a couple years so we can save up so I can have the wedding I really want. But my fiancé and I don’t think it’s a big deal or that we’re going to get bad luck. We just love our rings and each other so we wear them. My friend asked why we don’t get married already because we’re wearing our rings but I still want to have the whole wedding ordeal and wear a beautiful dress down the aisle. I feel like people are judging is just because we’re not totally going by the books.

    My fiance wears his at home sometimes to “break it in” he says.. tongue-out I dont believe in superstition or bad luck…I mean, if we based everything off that there would be alot mroe failed marriages/relationships. anyway….I personally dont think you should wear your wedding band until you are actually married. But, thats just my opinion. everyone will tell you something different. I say do you boo boo! kiss

    I don’t believe it’s superstitious but I still wouldn’t wear it.  It’s a special moment to put on a new Wedding band on your significant other’s finger.

    maladroite :  Oh my god thank you! I don’t see why there is so many people against it. I’m getting married in six months and we got a deal on our wedding band on Black Friday, which means I’ll have it around Christmas (it’s a custom ring to shadow the e-ring). It’s getting soldered to the e-ring, so I’m wearing them as soon as I get them back. I’m not gonna wait 5 months to wear my rings just because of some superstition and judgemental people. Let the bride do what she wants and remember that it’s HER decision and doesn’t involve your opinion, only her fiance’s. 🙂
