I know this is kind of silly but I’m curious to see if others are opting to wear their engagement ring or not to their wedding ceremony. I am thinking about not wearing it (mostly because its July and I’m afraid it’ll be humid and my fingers will swell and then not fit my wedding band with my engagement ring on. Seriously, this is the stupid things that come to mind as we get close to the wedding)

i wore mine on my left pinky during the ceremony, and then switched it back to my ring finger after the ring exchange

OOh thats a good idea. I read about people wearing them on their right had but mine does not fit at all on my right hand.

I believe that the general custom is to wear it on your right hand during the ceremony and then switchback to your left hand afterwards. But I think it’s entirely up to you as far as what you wish and feel comfortable with 🙂

I’m planning to wear mine on my right hand and then switch after the ceremony 🙂 This only works if your fingers are the same size though.

I originally planned to wear it on my right hand and then switch it over – but, at the last minute, my aunt let me wear my great-grandmother’s engagement ring as my “something old”, so that went on my right hand and I just wore my engagement ring on my regular finger/hand. During the ceremony, he slipped the wedding band over it and right after the ceremony (before pictures) I turned the rings around so that the wedding band was inside with my e-ring on top.

Oh man, i never even thought about this! i’m gonna have to try it on my right-hand now! If it doesn’t, i’ll probably just wear it on my lefthand and change it afterwards.

Yeah, I also wanted to do the right hand thing, but my hands are different enough in size that the swelling of my right ring finger in the July heat will almost guarantee it’ll get stuck there. So, I’m just keeping it on my left hand, putting the wedding band over it, and switching them later.
