I was watching Jason and Molly’s wedding last night, how sweet!!!! And I noticed her engagement ring on her right finger when he was putting the band on her left and it dawned on me that I didnt even think of where mine should be the day of my wedding. Of course I want to wear it on the other hand but is this usually what brides do?

The other hand being your right? Because yes, most brides take this route. You can always wear it on your left though and just switch the rings after the ceremony.

I’m trying to figure out what I want to do. I wear a ring on my ring hand all the time and I dont want to take it off for the wedding. So I’m thinking of either leaving my engagement ring on my left hand and just switching the rings right after the ceremony or I might put my engagment ring with my wedding ring and then when Fiance puts the wedding band on, he’ll slip my engagement ring on right after.

I am going to wear mine on my other hand until after the ceremony and then i will move it back to its rightful place with the wedding ring.

i thought about this too and we though about giving the best man the engagement ring and the wedding band so when he puts the ring on my finger he will be actually putting both on there. i dont know if we are having a ring bearer yet so most likely the best man will hold on to them until them.
i am thinking though that when i am getting ready and taking picture shouldnt i be wearing it? i am so confused too!

I’m going to wear it on my left hand and just let him put the band over it. I’ll reverse after the ceremony. I don’t know why but e-rings on right hands look so weird to me.

@corgitales, it does look weird to me also on the right hand but I feel like when my Fiance puts the band on my finger there shouldnt be another ring there

@tammy– hm… that’s not a bad point. I guess maybe i just won’t wear my e-ring at all and put it on later? I’ll have to give it more thought.

Hi date twin! We’re getting so close! I think I’m going to do the right hand thing, and just slip it onto the left hand after the ceremony. I kind of like the idea of him putting the wedding band on an empty finger. Not sure why! I think all the ways of doing it are just fine. 🙂

I plan on having my Maid/Matron of Honor wear mine during the ceremony! 🙂 Then she’ll put it on over my band after. I think this is another common way to do it.

i’ll prob wear it on my right ring finger along with my promise ring “over” it.
i like having the only ring on my left being my wedding band during the ceremony..then switch it over afterwards

I just tried and put my ering on my right hand. It feels so weird! I do think that it woul dbe good not to have a ring on my left finger though.

I am going to have my Maid/Matron of Honor hold it during the ceremony and then slip it on after. I was going to put it on my other hand, but when I get nervous my fingers swell so I am afraid I wouldn’t be able to get it off of my right hand.

My engagement ring doesn’t fit on my right hand. How can my right ring finger be so much bigger than my left? I’m just going to wear my engagment ring on my left hand and have my Fiance put my wedding band on top of it during the ceremony. I’ll just switch them after. I’m just afraid of something akward happening if I do it any other way.

I obsessed over this for MONTHS, wondering what to do, because my engagement ring doesn’t fit on my right hand and I didn’t really want to take off my e-ring or put it in another finger nor did I want to have the wedding band put on top of the e-ring if it’s supposed to go under it…
Well, when the time came I just wore my e-ring in the very same finger it’s been sitting at since we got engaged, and hubby put the wedding band on top of the e-ring, then on the ride to the reception site I took them off and switched them, wedding band first and e-ring on top. And it turned out to be no big deal 😛
