My wedding band is more important to me because that is what we got married with and was blessed, so it’s the symbol of our marriage. If I see someone only wearing an engagement ring I assume they’re only engaged and not married. It doesn’t bother me at all if anyone does that but to me it’s a bit strange as I’ve been bought up around people who always wore their wedding band and not so much their engagement ring

<br />I’ll wear both, I wouldn’t want strangers to think I’m engaged and not married.

I can’t believe I just clicked on 3 pictures of Kim Kardashian…

I’m probably only going to wear an e-ring. But I wouldn’t be choosing an e-ring over a wedding band, it’s just likely I won’t get a wedding band to begin with. Wedding bands are gorgeous and I love looking at everyone’s, but not sure it’s for me.

From a practical standpoint, I’m pretty no-frills and like the symplicity of wearing just one ring.

From a sentimental standpoint, Fiance and I will have been together over a decade by the time we get married and are the type that don’t see officially marrying as being that monumental for us at this point. To have one ring to represent our engagement and another to represent our marriage doesn’t mean as much to me as having one ring to represent all that our relationship is, has been, and will be. 


ETA: And most people that we know assume we’re already married and we have to tell them “nope not yet.” So I think the people in our lives aren’t the kind to make assumptions based on what rings we’re wearing anyway. And even if they or strangers do, I don’t care if they think I’m engaged rather than married, doesn’t affect or matter to me.

I’m probably more sentimentally attached to my future wedding band then I’ll ever be about my engagement ring. For me the wedding band is what’s truly important, and it won’t ever come off.

I think the wedding band will be way more important to me than the engagement ring.  I could see wearing my band sometimes without the e-ring (like if we were traveling and I didn’t want to take expensive things), but not the other way around. 

To me the engagement ring is a promise to marry me, but the band symbolizes the actual commitment we made.

My future SIL wears her engagement ring on her left hand and her wedding band on her right.  It’s a little untraditional, but her e-ring is far too large to accomodate a wedding band with it.  I’m afraid she thought if she put the e-ring on the right, people would think it’s a cocktail ring.  It’s two very large pearls surrounded by tiny diamonds.
