    I was always told your wedding band goes on first, closest to your heart.

    I’m simply switching my engagement ring to my right hand for the ceremony and then putting it back on the left after the wedding band is put on.

    I’ve seen rings worn both ways, but I’m going to wear the engagement ring on top so that can come on and off while the wedding band (and all that it symbolizes) stays on my finger. 🙂

    I have never seen anyone wear their wedding band on top.

    Like PP, I would probably switch the ering over too so I don’t risk losing it somewhere bc I’m not wearing it. We don’t have a wedding party but I would be too paranoid to give them my rings anyway. My officiant told me that at her wedding, her Maid/Matron of Honor was holding her groom’s ring around her finger right before they were about to starting the processional and then suddenly, she sees her BMs hiking up their skirts and digging in the ivy outside bc the Maid/Matron of Honor accidently dropped the ring and it rolled into the ivy!

    My Mom wears her wedding band on top and I never knew of any other way or tradition until coming to WB. She wears it that way because it fits best and her engagment ring has always been too big and the wedding band keeps it in place. I voted for engagment band on top, but if it looks and feels better the other way around, then I’ll just go with what works best for me. The tradition of keeping the wedding band near your heart is nice, but I prefer comfort.

    I had always wondered where the engagment ring goes during the ceremony. Wearing it on the right hand is what I’ll probably do as I don’t want anyone to hold it for me!

    I plan to wear my wedding ring first then put my engagement ring which seems the typical way to do it. Before coming on the bee I thought it was the other way around!

    We got engaged first so engagement ring should go first!

    Originally I just had one ring – I never had an ering. So, I just had the wedding band. My second set, I wore band first as the ering first looked “odd” to my eyes. Even when I see that look on others there is something visually unbalanced to it for me.

    My new set, I was wearing two bands, “e-ring”, and than another band. They looked awesome but when I had them soldered they were too much on my finger and dug my knuckle. I am having them resoldered to sandwich the “e-ring” between a band on either side, and will wear the extra band on my right hand.

    I have always heard the band “should” be worn closest to your heart, and some ceremonies even mention this, but I think people should do whatever they like. I know women who wear band on one hand and e-ring on other, for example.

    Most women I know, if they have not soldered their rings, just move their e-ring to their right hand for the wedding ceremony and put it back on over the band after the ceremony.

    @moniquaa:  I’ve seen people wearing their wedding band on top because they wear their engagement ring during the ceremony and just have the band placed to it and that’s how they continue to wear it. To each their own but I personally prefer to wear the band on the inside because tradition says it should be closest to the heart.

    im going to wear my rings with the wedding band on the bottom, closest to the heart.

    on my wedding day, i’m going to take off my e-ring before my fiance puts the wedding band on, then he’ll slide the e-ring on top of it.

    i hate how my e-ring looks on my right hand. it just seems so odd to me. plus, my knuckle is bigger on that hand so its a pain in the ass to get it on and off

    I honestly can not decide.  My wedding band and engagement ring look too blingy together, so I’ve been wearing them on separate hands.  I prefer to wear my engagement ring on my left hand and the wedding band on the right, but people don’t think I’m married, so I’ve just been switching it up each week to see what is more comfortable.

    I am glad someone asked this question. It was one i was meaning to ask. I think I will wear my Engagement Ring and the band can go on top. I’m already wearing Grandmas ring on the other hand. (and it won’t fit on that hand too)
