I know some people wear their engagment ring on their right hand and afterwards move it to their left ring finger

Just put it on your right hand, and switch it later.

If you have two bands then I think thats a great idea! Otherwise I would weat the other two on your right hand. 

I wear my college ring so I wonder the same thing. I thought about wearing my e ring on my left hand and taking it off when he goes to put on my wedding band. I like the idea of him placing it closest to my heart at the ceremony.

i was planning on putting it on my right hand but it was so hot in that room I could barely get my ring on there!  I just kept it on my left hand and put the wedding band on top and switched them later.

On your right ring finger. And switch it after the ceremony but before the receiving line. 

Or if you plan to wear a ring on your right ring finger you could wear it on your left and switch the wedding band closest to the heart after the ceremony. 

Or you could solder them together before hand and not have to worry about it. (This is what I plan on doing).

I don’t see why not!  That sounds like a great idea given the fact that you have a set and the one band alone might look a little awkward by itself.

I wore mine on my right hand and moved it to the left once the ceremony was over!

Technically you should have your ring finger “empty” and ready to recieve your Wedding Band(s)

So in the case of having 2 rings, he’d put both of them on your empty finger.

Then you can move things around after the ceremony… and never have to worry about “which” band actually sealed your covenant (somewhat important in some religous ceremonies, where the Wedding Bands are blessed before they are put onto the couple’s fingers)… no worries then on which is the “actual” band that should be worn closest to your heart

My Maid/Matron of Honor is going to hold my e-ring, or I am going to wear it on my right hand during the ceremony, and switch it before pictures.

I’m wearing mine and he will put the band on, we will switch it after. I like the idea of sealing the rinGs and since rings are all about tradition and not legalities id say go for it!

Other hand, or if it doesn’t fit, DH’s pocket or get your Maid/Matron of Honor to wear/hold it.

I am worrying about this too. My right hand is half a size bigger than my left and on the beach gonna be hot, no way I can get that thing on then off my right hand again. I think I will have my daughter (MOH) whose fingers are the exact same size as mine, wear it during the ceremony then hand it over after. LOL

I wore mine on the right hand and after her placed the wedding band on my left he took it off my right hand and placed it on my left after.
