I am just curious if this is catching on! When I was in grad school I met a guy who was wearing a wedding ring but he wasn’t married yet and I thought that was awesome. And then I got engaged and when we purchased my fiancé’s band he tried it on and hasn’t taken it off since. We are not traditional by any means and I really appreciate the gesture but I wouldn’t care if he waited until our wedding day either. Did your hubby wear a band during your engagement?

We bought my husbands ring and my wedding band at the same time and would occasionally wear them out when we knew we wouldn’t run into anyone. Other than that, no my husband waited till we got married.
i know a few guys who wore theirs through the engagement

FH will wear his ring around the house sometimes, but he won’t wear it out in public until after the wedding.

He has a cheaper engagement band and then a solid gold wedding band for when we get married in October. He wanted to wear a ring while engaged.

My fh really wanted an engagement ring, too. He’s never been married. So he picked a ring and I ordered it. He is going to repurpose it in the ceremony as a wedding ring. I think it’s pretty cute. Lol.

My Fiance has not worn it since he tried it on when it came in the mail. Same with my band. He’s also a mechanic, so he won’t be wearing it very often anyways.

I got my husband an engagement ring. The plan was that I’d upgrade it to a nicer wedding ring at our ceremony. But he loved it so much he decided he didn’t want a new ring.

I proposed to him, so he got a ring! We ordered it after I proposed (I tried to slyly get his ring size before so j could propose with the ring but he didn’t cooperate.
It’s the same band he wears now though.

I got my fiancé a silicon ring. He wears that or the cheapie we got to try for fit and thickness occasionally but won’t wear his permanent band until after the wedding.

He not only wanted to get a ring right after we got mine, but he was so picky that it took us months to find it! Who knew a simple band was so hard to choose. I ended up surprising him with it a few months down the line (the guy has expensive taste and I had to save up) and he has barely taken it off since he got it years ago. I didn’t really care about him wearing an engagement ring but it was nice for sure.

I got FH an engagement ring from Etsy. He loves it. Sometimes he forgets to wear it since he doesn’t own any jewelry. We will get him a wedding band when we get married. The engagement ring will probably become a rhr.

My husband and I did talk about getting him an engagement ring, but then it turned out that he just thought he had to get one because it was the norm. When I told him it was actually quite unusual, at least in our circle, he admitted he didn’t actually want one, so we ended up not bothering.

My husband did not. He didn’t want one.
My brother wore one during his engagement and it’s now his wedding band.

I proposed to my hubby with a sterling silver band after he proposed to me. He loved it.
