We didn’t wear ours until after we were married, but some nights, before going to sleep, we’d both try ours on and compare them.  I think it’s more special to wait.

I have his band and he has mine, and we live in different states, so when we go to visit each other we also go to visit our rings. We put them on sometimes around the house, but don’t wear them out in public (unless we forget to take them off, which has happened once each)

We have had ours sitting in two boxes for about 10 months now.  The only time I have brought them out was to try them on to make sure they fit and how it looked with my e-ring, so like a total of maybe 3 minutes and to show the Rabbi.  We are waiting for the wedding day to wear ours.  However, Fiance also got a tungston ring and slips that on every so often just to see how it feels, I make fun of him for it Laughing

I totally understand wanting to wear your ring! I wore mine for a full day at work and into the next morning the day it arrived. Mr. Rucksack had to force me to take it off so he could put it in the safe.

I think it’s probably more special to wait, but I won’t hate on you for doing exactly what I want to do!

I wore my wedding band for a week after we bought it.  I just loved how much extra bling there was but eventually tucked it away for the wedding.  I would put yours away for a few months until the wedding to build up the excitement!

I’ll probably put it on to take a few pics and make sure it fits, but I don’t think I’ll wear it on a regular basis until after the wedding.

My ring was custom designed to stand alone so it’s the only ring I will have. I have been wearing it since we got engaged and I will just take it off before the wedding and then put it back on in the ceremony. I don’t think it’s weird at all. As others have said, our relationship is already as committed as a marriage.

@TFish:  I think it is up to you but I also think it is worth the wait 🙂

Would love to see the ring though!

hahaha I have mine on right now and Im not getting married for another year!!! I LOVE my wedding band and can’t wait to wear it forever.  I only put it on occasionally.  And only in the house… usually just while sitting in bed before sleep – like now!  I will never wear it out of the house or around others tho until the wedding

@TFish:  I ahave always heard it is bad luck but that is if you choose to believe that. Ultimately the decision is your’s but I agree with the PP’s, it should be saved for the special day.

I think its good to wait.. so it means something once you finally get to put it on but that is me.
