    My understanding is it goes inside.

    I’ve always worn it on the inside, closes to the heart, on the ring finger of my left hand. However, I know other cultures do things differently and have seen women in the midwest wearing the engagement ring closest to their heart. You may want to check what your family members do and mimic that.

    It’s funny because I always thought it was silly to have to remove your engagement ring to put the band on first. I always thought it would make more sense to leave the engagement on, then add the band on the outside at the wedding, like it’s sealing the deal lol. But knowing that it’s traditional to wear the band on the inside, I’ll likely wear it that way too.

    but my mom wears hers on the outside for practical purposes. her ering is looser than her wedding band, so she uses the band to keep them both on until she gets the ering resized.

    @lilsweetie:  that’s what I’ll do also. I’d rather it gOman the inside but I need it on the outsid to be sure my ering stays put!

    @dlbaqua:  a plain band closest to the heart that represents the actual union, not just the promise of unbroken and continual love :D. besides that, it’s probably easier to take off the ering and leave the band on whenever an occasion calls for not wearing an ering.
