Ok so I’m a little bit confused. Where in the heck are you supposed to wear your E-Ring during the ceremony? I’ve mostly heard wear it on your right hand ring finger, but me being dominantly right handed my finger is too big for the ring. Here’s what else I’ve heard:
1. Have the Maid/Matron of Honor wear it on her right hand and retrieve after ceremony.
2. Wear it on a chain as a necklace.
3. Solder them together pre wedding and they are put on as one at the ceremony.
4. Have the minister have me remove the E-Ring during the exchange hand to Maid/Matron of Honor to hold have F put on band then take E-Ring from Maid/Matron of Honor and replace to “seal the promises that the wedding band represents.”
5. Just not wear it at all.
I feel naked without my ring and I want it for pictures. I thought about letting my dad hold on to it and giving it to him before walking down the aisle and then have him put it on afterwards. I need input! Help me fellow Bee’s! 🙂
p.s. oh and the E-Ring was my F’s grandmothers so I feel like it should be a part somewhere you know?

I’m going to wear it on my right hand. If I couldn’t do that, I’d probably pin it inside my dress or something like that. After the ceremony, I’ll put it back on my left hand.
Some of your options give way too many chances to drop it, which makes me nervous.

option 6? Wear it on your left ring finger as usual and just switch the order of the rings a later when no ones watching.

I wore mine on my right hand during the ceremony. Pre-ceremony, I had it on the left still. If your right hand really is too big for it, I say either have your fiance or husband hold it during the ceremony, just for whatever reason. (I just like that idea. 🙂 )

I was just planning on wearing it as normal, and having him put the wedding band on top of it. Then after the cermony, I would flip them the other way around. My band is going to be curved to fit close to my ring, so I think it would look odd alone.

I’m trying to lean away from wearing it on my left finger and just having him put the band on on top because the band is supposed to be closest to your heart and I’d have to remove it right away after the ceremony to switch it. I don’t want to jynx anything! LOL

I may wear it on my right hand, or have him take the ring of my left hand put the band and then put the e-ring on it again.

I was thinking about that too. First I thought I could wear on my right hand like many other bees have done, but it made me feel a little uncomfortable. Maybe I’ll have Mother-In-Law or SIL to wear it and then give it back later. I also thought that I can just put them together at the ceremony, that will be fine too.
I cant see myself NOT wearing my ring at all that day!!

I agree with @pinkshoes…that’s what most people I know have done. Just switch the bands around after the ceremony…you and your guy will usually have a few minutes together after the ceremony and before the chaos of the formal post-game pictures…one of the first things you’ll be looking at are your new rings and you can switch them then – no big deal.

@trugem: Oh I really like that idea! i was just going to wear it on my right hand, but I like the idea of his taking the ring off and then putting it back on after the wedding ring.

I was planning on putting my e ring on my right hand during the ceremony, then switching it back over after the ceremony was over, but I couldn’t fit it onto my right hand! My Bridesmaid or Best Man ended up wearing it on her right hand and giving it to me after the ceremony.

I wore it on my right hand. Then after the vows, I moved it over on top of the wedding band. So can’t vote in your poll.

I’m keeping mine on my left hand too, since I want to wear my blue diamond ring on my right hand as my “something blue”. Then I’ll flip the band and e-ring around after the ceremony.

Im glad Im not the only one is confused about this. I wear a promise ring Mr E gave me before we were engaged on my left hand, so I think I am just going to get him to put both my wedding band and e-ring on me when we exchange them during the ceremony.
