Me and my partner are not going to be wearing our wedding bands until the ceremony as 1. We’re both superstitious and think its bad luck, and 2. The wedding band is supposed to be a symbol of your marriage, of which you aren’t actually married until the big day. x

I think if it isn’t going to be your ACTUAL wedding band, and if your FH is okay with the idea, why not? Just because it’s “plain” doesn’t make it a wedding band (many of the wedding bands I’ve seen on here are way fancier than my e-ring, even) — think of it as an alternative e-ring or a promise ring.

I don’t see a problem with it at all- I am buying a plain band ($14 for a titanium band) for when I go to Guatemala this summer as my group is spending a couple days near Lake Atilan before heading up into the highlands, and  I would rather not be a target for the pick-pockets looking for tourists. FH is very happy with that idea as then the ring isn’t in jeopardy but I’m still wearing “something”.

No problem with that at all! It is NOT bad luck. Well, at my wedding we didn’t care about seeing each other before the wedding either (it’s a tradition in both of our cultures) so no bad luck came from that either!

My engagement ring actually looked like a wedding band. In fact, I just used the same ring for my wedding band when I did get married since I didn’t want to wear 2 and loved the one I had. So I suppose I was wearing my wedding ring before the wedding 🙂

Sounds like a good idea to me especially when I read it would be something inexpensive and not your “real” wedding band. I am planning on purchasing something more simple to wear after I get married in place of my e-ring and band he puts on my finger when we get married. Don’t want to have to worry about things getting banged around and damaged!

I spent two years living in a conservative country and I wore a “wedding ring” the whole time. It was just a regular ring that my grandmother had given me, but I wore it on my ring finger and no one ever questioned it. Honestly, I know it made a really big difference for me in terms of how I was treated.  

I don’t think you should have to feel like you need to wear something, but if you want to I think that’s fine. I wouldn’t wear “the ring” until you actually get married, but there is nothing wrong if you wear something on that finger. If nothing else it just signals that you’re not really interested.

Seems like a reasonable thing to do.

My sister used to do that and she wasn’t even engaged yet. I say go for it.
