Maybe you could have a wedding necklace instead?

You can do whatever you want! ๐Ÿ™‚ But I think that if you only wear an engagement ring once you are married, other people might think you are still engaged and not married. The wedding band is a symbol and communicates your marital status ๐Ÿ˜‰ Having said that, who cares? People should never assume. 

Since you don’t like rings, why not wear a simple band instead of an engagement ring with a stone? It would be much more comfortable. And you could also go ring-less, as I know people who have done that.

Do your thing girl! But if you’re interested, I’ve mostly seen people wear a wedding band if they choose one ring. But who cares?

I wanted just one ring too for both. I think if you are in agreement than you should go for it. I see a lot of ladies who only have one ring that they got for their 10 or 20 year anniversary.

 For a very long time I just wore my e-ring on my left hand and my wedding band on my right hand and I was only asked a handful of times when I was actually getting married.  DH’s cousin’s wife has only worn a solitaire for years.  I know of so many ladies that just wear one ring that I don’t think it’s a big deal at all.  I personally prefer it because I like the look of just one ring.

I think it’s okay. My mom has one ring, and it’s never seemed weird to me, nor have i heard anyone say anything about it.

Mine has 3 bands, and it would be hard to find a matching weddign band. So i’m wearing it alone

Whatever you want to do is up to you.  I see nothing wrong with it at al… most ladies around here just wear a wedding band, no e-ring.

I didnt read all the posts so this may have been mentioned.. get a really thin band and attach it to the e ring so its one piece?

It is absolutely okay! I never wanted to do that, however I have seen some BEAUTIFUL rings that are combined engagement/wedding rings. If I were to do it over again and wanted to just have one ring, here’s ones I would be interested in:

My mom only wears one ring and I’ve never heard anyone say anything. Also loads of people don’t wear a ring, or wear it sometimes, or just have a wedding band. It’s all okay ๐Ÿ™‚ My SO isn’t big on jewellry, so I suspect his ring may spend more time off than on.

If you really don’t like wearing metal you could always get a beautiful curved wood ring for everyday.

 

Good luck finding something that works for you

@April_Fools_Bride:   Absolutely!!!   That’s what I did.  I didn’t really like the idea of wearing two rings–most wedding rings look like an afterthought to me and wearing one ring was just more comfortable.  We searched for quite a while and ended up with one ring for me that I just adore!  The band is thick and substantial and is very similar to my husband’s wedding band.

The only downside was I had to give the ring back to my fiance the night before the wedding so we could use it in the ceremony, but I survived…!!!

Of course! I’ve actually heard it’s the norm in some communities (Mormon temple weddings don’t put as much emphasis on the rings, so many Mormons only wear the ring used in their ceremony). Just make sure you and your SO agree on your decision. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m doing exactly this. I feel more attached to my engagement ring and feel there’s no need for an additional band. I have scrawny fingers anyways and my hand would look totally overloaded.

One ring here. Although its designed to look like there is a wedding band. I will flip her over band side in once married.  ๐Ÿ™‚
