    your e-ring is the symbol of being engaged, you don’t have to be married to wear your e-ring! it is not rude at all!

    I don’t understand what the problem is, honestly. At least in the US I don’t think an e-ring signifies you’re married, it signifies you’re engaged. Which you are. It would be a little odd to wear your wedding band either alone or with the e-ring to the wedding (or anywhere) if you’re not married, but I wouldn’t call it rude. Just unusual. But to be upset that someone’s wearing an e-ring because they’re engaged? No, that’s fine. Attending a wedding has nothing to do with it.

    Huh? Of course you can wear your engagement ring, you’re engaged.

    *blink blink* I am so confused as to why someone would tell you that. From the moment I got engaged I have worn my ring every single day. I have no idea why I would take it off if I’m going to an event, wedding, regardless.

    I’ve never heard this before and I can’t imagine this being rude at all. I think it would be rude to your SO if you didn’t wear it. But I’m no etiquette expert so I could be wrong. Hope other bees have an answer for you.

    Lol, your friend is dillusional !!

    There is no such Rule of Etiquette (and I am a certifed Etiquette Snob)

    And trust me, your wearing an E-Ring will not detract from any of the spotlight that will be on the Bride & Groom (Marriage out-trumps Engagement every time… especially when the marriage is the reason everyone is in the same room to begin with)

    Really, I have no idea where people get these wacky ideas (read here awhile ago on WBee that a Bride had asked her Bridesmaids not to wear their Wedding Rings… ) NUTS quite frankly !!

    Bridezilla-ism is waaay out of hand !!

    I wonder if the bride voiced the “stealing thunder” concern to this friend, and they told you it was rude to help her out. It’s totally not true. It’s your status, not a brag. Wear the ring.

    Might I add, people really shouldn’t keep track of how big everyone else’s rings are. For that to be an etiquette fact, every engaged wedding guest would be expected to know how big the bride’s diamond is, and compare their own.

    I don’t even see what “rude” has to do with it? You are engaged, it’s engagement ring…. if people are married, they will wear their wedding rings to the wedding…. so you wear your ring too. Maybe a little bridezilla jealousy here…. LOL

    Sorry, but whoever told you that is an idiot. Flaunt your ring girl.
