So as my big is fast approaching I wanted to ask what everyone was going to do with their engagement on the big day?
I know this is kind of silly, but do I keep it with my wedding band and put it back on right after my wedding band? Is it ok to wear it down the aisle or is that not an ok thing to do? Do you wear it on your right hand and then just switch it over? do you have someone else hold on to it and put it on after the ceremony?
So what are all you bees planning on doing, because I’m truely clueless as to what to do?

I think I’m going to have my sister (MOH) wear it (probably on her thumb since her fingers are so tiny lol). I did this for her when she got married 2 years a go 🙂 Then I will put it on after I get my band!

I’m going to wear it on my right hand and then switch it back to my left hand after the ceremony. I think this is a common way to do it–it allows you to wear the ring during the ceremony, without it getting in the way of the wedding band.

I am going to wear it on my right hand 🙂

I’m keeping it on my left hand; Fiance will just take an extra moment to remove it, put on the wedding band, then put the e-ring back on. I don’t know if that’s how it’s usually done (frankly, I’ve never been close enough to the action to see lol), but we discussed it, and that’s what he wanted to do. 🙂

I’m not voting because I don’t think I’ll be using any of those options.
My right hand is a little bigger than my left, so unfortunately I won’t be able to fit my e-ring on my right ring finger during the ceremony.
I think I’ll just leave it on my left hand where it should be, and then after the ceremony, I’ll quickly switch the order of my wedding band and e-ring. No one will ever notice.

My e-band snaps into my wedding band, so I will give the ering to FI’s best man and have them kept together.

I was told by my married friends and photographer that you leave it on your left hand and the wedding band seals in the love and commitment. After the ceremony, you flip it around. Maybe that’s not correct in terms of tradition, but they all said it, so I did it and I loved the idea of sealing in the love.

i didn’t even think about it and just left it on my left hand. wedding band went right on top. I haven’t switched it either, since mr. sew said he liked the “seals the deal” idea more than the “closer to your heart” idea. That, and if I were to lose one of the rings, he’d rather I lost the cheaper one first. lol.

I plan to wear mine like normal and he’ll put the wedding ring ‘on top of’ it. I’ll swap them later 🙂

My sister/MOH wore mine as my right hand is bigger than my left so it wouldn’t fit me. She then gave it to me after the ceremony.

I put it right overtop of my engagement ring and am keeping it that way! I know you’re “supposed to” wear the band first, but my rings look a lot better with the engagement ring first.

I guess I should add that I’m going to be having 2 bands *oops* lol so I think I am going to go with what a lot of you have been saying and wear it on my right hand and then sneak it inbetween the bands. Or I’ll just have him put one band on and then fix it after the ceremony. Either way we’ll practice before the wedding to make sure whatever we decide to do will work out fine.

I wore it on my right hand and switched right after. I wouldn’t not want to wear it at all, you’ll be too busy to think about going to get it and you don’t want anything to happen to it.

My wedding ring would look kind of silly on it’s own, so I plan on wearing my e-ring on my right hand until we do the ring ceremony, then switching it over discreetly, either right after the ring ceremony, or after the recessional. Whichever works.
