I always wondered about this. How one chooses to wear their wedding band, on which side of the engagement ring.
I heard someone say they wear the band on the inside because it’s “closer to your heart.” So that’s what I did.
I’m curious as how to others wear their wedding band and the reasoning behind it?

I’m with the “closer to your heart” group. I put my wedding band on first, then my engagement ring.
Then again – I also wear my rings on my right hand instead of my left hand.

@2PeasinaPod: Really! Why is that? If you don’t mind me asking?

I actually swap a lot. I’ll wear it on top or bottom. Sometimes I wear my engagement ring on my right hand and my wedding ring on my left. I could never fuse them because I love the options!

I’m with the “closer to your heart” group too. That’s what I was always told growing up and what everyone in my family does. I like the symbolism of it too!

I wear mine on the inside because I thought it looked upside down if it was on the outside. Very romantic reasoning, no?

@caitlanc: LOL, very! I like mine on either side, but wear it on the inside. Guess it means I could just get another band, no? 😛

I wore mine on the outside for a while, and my mom’s friend freaked out at me. She kept saying, “Don’t you know it’s the WRONG way?” Yeesh!

I wear mine on the inside (closer to the heart) because that’s how I did it on the wedding day and that’s what feels better to me. I just like the look of my e-ring on ‘top’ – not being the other is ‘closer to my heart’.

I also do the “closer to the hearth” thing.

I wear mine on my right hand because it bothers me that it is bopping around next to my other ring. I notice it now in colder months.

I’ve worn it inside because that’s how the sales clerk said it should be worn. I had never tried it outside until now. I think I may switch because when a friend asked to see it once she said it was awkward to see because the ering was set on a prong so it blocked my wedding ring. They’re both close to my heart so that doesn’t help me decide. I think I’ll try it outside for now. It makes sense in terms of the order that i got them in, haha.

I can’t wear them together yet but when I tried them on 🙂 I wore the wedding band on the inside because that’s what my family does. I’ve also heard the “closer to your heart” thing and I must admit that I like it…I’m corny.
