Traditionally, the wedding band is worn first because it’s closest to the heart. Some people get 2 bands – one to go first, and one to go last. I think it looks a little off when they’re in the other order, but whatever you want to do!

I like the wedding band first because that makes it closer to your heart and getting married is a bigger commitment than getting engaged.

Wait…do you mean first…like on top or first like on bottom? lol

I think wedding band should be the closest band to the bottom of your finger (closest to the heart)

I feel the same way you do.  To me the ering signifies him wanting us to be together forever and me accepting. The wedding ring seals the deal and signifies the public/legal declaration of our promise.  I get it’s not “traditional”… don’t care.

Since I wear my ering all the time there’s no issue of having to take the wedding band off to take the ering off and then put the band back on.  I could see where this would get old.  I only take them off for safetly (anything with something that has live or potential stored electricity/charge) and then they both come off.

The actual commitment is, to me, more important than the promise to commit. If you wore just one, only the band would indicate to people that you are actually married. That, to me, makes the wedding band more important.

If the engagement is more important than the wedding and marriage, why bother getting married?

I’ve always thought the wedding band should be worn first because it makes the e-ring easier to take on and off that way.

My wedding band is more significant so I’ll probably never remove it. My e-ring will still come off for things like cleaning, showering, sleeping. For that reason, it only makes sense (to me) to wear it on the outside.

@asscherlover:  I agree with this.

Everyone should wear their ring in the order they want, but I like the symbolism of the wedding ring going on first (closer to the heart), then the e-ring on top.

I always thought I’d put the band on the bottom and the engagement ring on top but I’ve decided to go ahead and not get a wedding band at all. I just really like the look of one ring.

I’m a little more into tradition when it comes to the way I wear my rings. To me the wedding band should be worn closer to the heart because it’s the bigger commitment than the engagament.

I agree with everyone who said that the wedding band ought to be worn closest to the heart.  This is also what my husband believes.
