good question! i don’t think Fiance and I are doing a first look so for our pre-ceremony photos (just pics with bridal party and parents) so i don’t think we will wear our wedding bands. I’ll be holding a bouquet in most of them anyways and you prob won’t be able to see it. i will be wearing my e-ring of course on my left hand.

If we were doing a first look (or do… we keep going back and forth!!) we prob still wouldn’t..but thats just my preference.

but with all things wedding, let you and your Fiance do what you guys feel best πŸ˜€

yeah i def see the dilemma there. i guess for me i like the idea of the photos capturing the “before” and “after” moments of the ceremony. no ring before and yay! we have our rings now and we are married!!!

In pictures i think the focus will of course be on your faces/dress (i know there will be hand shots/ring shots too) and not so much on your hands so i think its ok if different shots have you wearing them and not.

But if you want consistency in all the pics, then maybe wear them pre-ceremony. (especially if there is a favorite picture of you two taken before and you end of “wishing” you were wearing rings which def could happen too)

bottom line: for me i’d still not wear them before just because as i said i like the “before” and “after” official shots πŸ˜€

Hummm …. I don’t know either – I want to see what more people say on this one.  We’re doing a first look too (although it took a lot of convincing for me to go for it) so I can certainly see wearing the wedding band as if you’d taken everything after the ceremony.  But I can also see the appeal of having “before” and “after” photos (we’re doing some pictures after the ceremony too).

We won’t wear our bands during our pre-ceremony photos with family and wedding party simply because we want to save them to exchange during the ceremony. After the ceremony, we are doing bride and groom pics, so there’ll be plenty of time to take pics with the rings on.

I’m glad you brought this up because we were just thinking about this, this morning!! I guess we’ll end up waiting to wear our rings until the ceremony, then just take a bunch of pics afterwards of course! We’re also doing a first look, so I was concerned about not having rings, too!!!

Oh girl, I know… I’m tempted to wear my ring on my right hand and switch it for pictures, but I’m not sure! I know he won’t have his band on till the ceremony. Oy! So confusing!

We’re doing first look photos and we won’t be wearing our wedding bands. I want to save them until the ceremony and I don’t think it’ll be noticeable anyway. we’re taking some shots after the ceremony so we’ll capture them then.

We did first look photos and we wore our rings.  I hadn’t thought about it beforehand and at the last minute decided to wear both rings for the photos.
