    Keep it but move it to the right arm so you don't take away from the wedding ring. : (3 votes)

    I wouldn’t wear it, personally, but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t keep it with you. I’d probably give it a half twist and slip it onto your bouquet handle.

    I think if you feel comfortable wearing them, go right ahead.  It’s yours and your Fiance’s day.  I wouldn’t judge you for them and if someone does, shame on them b/c it isn’t their wedding 🙂

    I wouldn’t wear it.  I agree with PP, would you consider putting it/them on your bouquet.  or you could make a donation to a foundation in his memory in lieu of favors to celebrate him. That way you’re still honoring him without the band.

    It means something to you. Wear it.

    Your wedding attire is completely up to you, so if you want to wear it, go for it. If you don’t think it goes with your wedding look though, I’m sure there’s lots of other places you could incorporate it. If it won’t fit on the bouquet handle you could always buy a little charm that looks like the ribbon and put that on the bouquet, like the Bees tend to do with their avatars.

    I like the bouquet idea, or you could pin a white ribbon and a blue ribbon onto the stems, or right in the bouquet… you might also consider pinning the bracelets into the hem of the dress?

    i love the bouquet idea – i personally wouldnt wear them but depending on your dress i think the white one could look ok… my husband has a white one that he has worn for years and wore it on our wedding day 🙂

    I also wear two bands on my left wrist- I wear a periwinkle one for my father who I lost due to stomach cancer and I wear a pink one for my mother had breast cancer and who is currently in remission.  I never even thought about what I am going to do with them on my wedding day. I probably will remove them and only because I found another bracelet that I love and matches my jewerly. 

    I have a  diamond butterfly  being placed in my bouquet for my dad ( when he was in hospice butterflies were everywhere, and he has a memorial stone in the butterfly garden  ) so I may be okay with taking off the bracelet since I do have that close by.

    I dont think it will look tacky though if you do decide to wear them! They mean something to you and if you want to wear them I think you should.
