The thing is, your wedding band should go on your finger first, and then your engagement ring on top of it. If your engagement ring is already on your left hand, then your wedding ring isn’t put in the proper place. Some people choose to switch them after the ceremony, but some people prefer for it to be placed correctly during the ceremony. It’s a matter of personal preference really.

I kept mine on my left hand. We just put our rings on like normal during the ceremony and I fixed it (by moving the band on the inside) after when we walked off away from the guests.

I had mine on my right hand and then switched it when we were signing our license.  Traditionally, the wedding band should be first on the finger because it’s closest to your heart.  They used to believe that there was a vein in your ring finger that went straight to your heart.

i think i’ll be wearing my e-ring on my right hand and then switch after the ceremony. it just bugs me if the wedding band isn’t in the right place when we exchange vows..not sure why but i just feel weird about it.

I think it doesn’t mater – whatever you want! I’m pretty sure you won’t be getting a divorce just because your rings were placed on backwards (I don’t believe in luck. At all.)

My e-ring won’t fit on my right hand at all!  I mean on my pinky, but it’s way too big!  Does anyone else have this much of a diff. between their R and L hands?  I think it’s just the knuckle…..there’s no way my e-ring will get past the knuckle on my right hand!  My e-ring is a 4, and I wear my old promise ring on my right hand ring finger, and that’s a 4.25…what gives?  What should I do with my ring, give it to my mom during the ceremony?

I intended to wear my e-ring on my right hand but I totally forgot to switch it (since I had it on my left hand for pre-ceremony pics).  Oh well… no big deal.  I switched the band and e-ring before the reception started.

I have seen where a bride will put the ring on the middle finger of her left hand and when they exchange rings the groom will place it back on the correct finger after placing the wedding band there…just a thought

I just posted this in the original thread you saw but thought I’d include here too.

I’m including my e-ring in the ceremony.  The best man will be holding it along with my wedding band, and it will be included in the blessing of the rings (catholic ceremony).  Then after we exchange wedding bands the priest is going to say this:

“The engagement ring is a symbol of promise and intention. Now the intention is realized and the promise fulfilled. *Groom’s Name*, please place your engagement ring on *Brides’s Name* finger over her wedding band to symbolize that the love that brought you together will always protect and sustain your marriage.”

I originally saw it somewhere on the bee and loved the idea.

My wedding ring is actually a ring guard, so I will take my e-ring off before the ceremony, put it in the ring guard and not wear either down the aisle. Then when its time to put the rings on during the ceremony, FH will just put the e-ring/ wedding ring guard set on my finger.
