    I’m not married yet but I’ll be wearing my wedding band under my e-ring.

    I wear mine on my right hand.  I like my e-ring to stand alone.  But I didn’t see that as an option until I already voted.  I voted wrong.  :/

    If you’re wearing them on the same finger, traditionally the band goes on first with your e-ring above it.

    I heard somewhere that it should be below, so it’s closer to your heart.

    I have two bands and wear one on each side of my engagement ring, but if I had one I would wear it underneath.

    I wear my wedding band below my engagement ring closest to the base of my finger.

    I plan on wearing it below until our first child.  Here’s my plan…I’m begging for a sparkly band as an early “push present,” that will be sized bigger so that I can wear it through all the pregnancy swelling.  When I’ve returned back to my normal size post-pregnancy, I’ll wear wedding band on top, e-ring in middle, and the sparkly band below (the smaller e-ring and wedding ring will “lock in” the bigger sparkly band).  A mother of a student gave me this pointer and wears her rings that way…love it!

    I think it’s supposed to be below so that it’s closer to the heart.

    We’re not married yet, but I’ll wear it under mine. I feel like it looks better that way with my e-ring.

    I am with the majority. I wear mine closest to my heart.

    I know that wearing your wedding band below is more traditional, but having the e-ring on top feels to me like the diamond is “escaping”. I like the band on top to “lock it down”. It feels more secure that way, although logically I know it doesn’t make a difference.

    I wore mine above my e-ring for the first few days as well, I kind of liked how it looked, but after about a week I swapped it to below and have preferred it that way ever since.

    My two favorite views on the topic:

    Below: Your wedding ring is closest to your heart.

    Above: Your engagement ring was given as a promise of a life together and the wedding band on top seals that promise.
