I think of those things too! We’re doing a ring warming so I’m going to have my engagement ring tied onto the dish with our wedding bands. I also want to incorporate it into the ceremony, and if I recall correctly, TinyLucy had a great idea here:

Groom, the engagement ring that you gave Bride is a symbol of promise and intention.  Now that the intention is realized and the promise fulfilled, please place your engagement ring on Bride’s finger over her wedding band to symbolize that the love that brought you together will always protect and sustain your marriage.

I loved this when I saw it!

I’m pretty sure I wore my engagement ring on my right hand during the ceremony and then switched it over before the reception. That could be an option for you if your ring will fit on your right hand. You could also tie it onto your bouquet and then put it back on after the ceremony.

@missmidcentury:

OMG, that is a wonderful thing to incorporate into the ceremony!  I’ve never heard that before, but I love it!!!

We are doing a Catholic ceremony, and our priest told us that I should not be wearing my engagement ring on my left hand, as the wedding band should be closest to my heart when Mr CA puts it on. So, I will be wearing it on my right hand during the ceremony, and will move it over (above the band) after!

I wore mine during the ceremony. But I had to take it off and give it to Darling Husband during the exchange of rings so he could put it in my wedding ring, which is a wrap/guard…

I’m not sure.  I will be wearing wedding band only.  They don’t fit together.

So I may opt to wear my engagement ring on my right hand.

I wore mine on my right hand, and moved it over after the ceremony ended.

I’m wearing my grandmother’s wedding set on my right hand, so my e-ring will be on my left hand and he’ll slip the wedding band on top.  I’ll switch them after the ceremony.  Might not be the recommended way, but it’ll work.

Like a few of the others here I’ll be wearing mine on my right hand – and I’ll actually leave it there as I plan on wearing my wedding ring solo.

Ditto to most posts – planning to wear it on my right hand and move it later.

My fingers tend to swell as well and my e-ring actually doesn’t fit onto my right hand.  I’m wearing my mom’s wedding band on my right ring finger instead and I’ll put the e-ring on after the ceremony.

@candy apple: I wore mine on the left hand during vows in my Catholic ceremony. I flipped them before the receiving line started. I asked the priest the night before and he didn’t have a solid answer for me. I think that my SIL wore hers on the right during the wedding and then aligned them correctly afterwards.

I wore mine, Darling Husband put the wedding ring on top. Before the reception I moved the wedding band under the engagement ring.
