My fiance wanted me to make sure before he wore his wedding band to get used to it that there was no superstition or bad luck associated with it. He’s just not used to rings and was thinking about wearing it a little bit to get used to it.

I would wait. I feel like it will take the same amount of getting used to whether he does it now or later.

My husband was the same… not sure he even wanted a ring because he’s never worn one… i was telling him before we got married that it would be weird at first… i mean it was weird when i got my e-ring but you get use to it then you feel naked if your not wearing it LOL…..we’ve been married since October 2010 and he loves his ring.
I would wait… i wouldn’t wear it before hand…. worse case if he doesn’t like wearing it after say a month then put it on a chain and wear it around his neck 🙂 lol

@mandb122: get him a different ring to wear. Did you wear your engagement ring before you got engaged to get use to it?

@Miss Tattoo: That’s true.
Thanks everyone, I’ll just tell him to wait.

i suggest he tries it – for our wedding we werent even married 15mins and hubby was asking to take off his ring because it hurt him (wasnt too small dont dont know what the problem was) and it hasnt been back on ever since
we’ve since melted it down and used it for a necklace that he preferes to wear

My husband was saying before “oh maybe we should not worry about spending the money on me getting a ring because it might feel weird” and i was like “yeah sure but then you would have to get a tattoo ring on that finger” LMAO he hates tattoos LMAO

you should both wear your rings around the house! I wore my wedding ring just for fun, and after I stared at it for a few days, I started to really dislike the style! unfortunately, it was too late to return it. so if I had done that sooner, I would have been able to return it and buy a ring I really love.

My husband wore his ring beforehand but only because he was excited about it.
I don’t see any harm in wearing it before the ceremony. It’s not like its bad mojo. I think it’s cute that he wants to try it on. Put it on for him the first time if you want to have a special moment.

My husband was really paranoid about not being able to remove his ring – his fingers change size pretty dramatically with temperature. For his ring, we took it home for 72 hours (the length of time the store would let us keep it before we weren’t allowed to return it) and he’d intermittently put it on and take it off. I’m glad we did that, because we ended up having to go with a larger size than we originally thought. For his actual ring, we kept it at the jewelry store until after the engraving was done, and then I took it home and hid it until our wedding day – the text was a secret. He never wore his actual wedding band until we were married.

I’m really into some superstitions and not into others. While my husband didn’t wear his band b/c we just never thought of it, and i think he would feel weird if he wasn’t married yet (comments from others), I had to have my wedding bands soldered to my e-ring bc of it’s shape. I did that a good month or longer before the wedding and wore it all the time. I didn’t care. But, that’s me and I know I can be weird. 🙂 I also changed my name months before the wedding and went by my new last name. 🙂 And hubby and I got ready for the wedding together and drove to the site together. But that was probably b/c we were too poor to do it any other way. 🙂 But then again, we’ve been together almost 12 years (married almost 10) and we haven’t been a night apart (except when I gave birth to our son for 2 nights b/c he wasn’t allowed to stay in the hospital, and when we were in a rocky part of our marriage and he went to his mom’s for 2 nights) in all those years. So, I guess our decisions just seemed to go with the way we are.

I’m not very superstitious when it comes to the wedding and I think it’s better to be practical. especially when it comes to something really expensive that you might not be able to return if you’ve had it too long.
my fiance jokes with me all the time. I’ll say, “don’t comment on the weather, you’ll jinx it!” and he’ll reply “yes, I alone, one human being, personally affected the clouds by my words and caused the rain to come.” it snaps me back into reality fast!
