My engagement ring isn’t soldered to my wedding ring either, but they sit together fairly well, so I just wore them together on the wedding day.

Now, I either wear both, or just one at a time, depending on what I’m doing. I got a simpler wedding band so I could wear it when doing outdoor stuff, or when I don’t feel like something blingy (pretty much most of the time), and I just chuck on the engagement ring when I want to dress it up a bit.

Is the wedding band already purchased?  I think people usually get them so that they can wear the wedding band and the engagement ring together…

I left the three rings with our ringbearer and had my DH put both rings on during the ring exchange.

Our officiant asked me just before the ceremony to switch it to my right hand. Then, after the part in the ceremony where we exchanged rings, she had him put my engagement ring on my left hand, making a comment about sealing our vows with the promise he made when we got engaged. It was really nice.

most people either wear their e-ring on their left hand and then have their Fiance put their ring on after/switch them after the ceremony’s over or wear their e-ring on their right hand

I wore mine on my right hand until after the ceremony.

@jbbs1222:  Why did you choose a wedding band that you couldn’t wear with your engagement ring?

On the wedding day it could be nice that he moves the engagement ring to the right hand for you, if you don’t already have it there. 

After the day, you can wear the engagement ring permanantly on the right hand (that’s what I do now with my promise ring now that i have the engagement ring).  You could also consider getting the stones from both rings re-set in a single ring – that would look nice to have the same asymmetric twist but with 5 stones total, the bigger one in the middle.  Or, consider re-setting the stones from one ring to, for example, a necklace or pair of earings?

I will be wearing my e-ring on my right hand until after the ceremony.

You’re right, your wedding band and e-ring cannot be worn together. I have seen lots of women wear their e-ring on their right hands. It’s an exquisite look!

I have the same kind of dilemma, my thought was just to switch my engagement ring to my right hand after all is said and done. I won’t wear it everyday because of where I work, but I do plan on wearing it often and keeping it as nice as possible to be used as an heirloom later.

As far as your wedding goes, I’d say switch it to your right hand to be used as your something blue. 🙂

By the way I am simply drooling over your rings! They are stunning!

Wear the e ring on your right hand. Your only other choice is to have it sit in a jewelry box, neglected and unworn, which is to me, a terrible waste. I don’t believe in keeping unworn jewelry.
