  • Yep, you are wrong. LOL! I used to think the same thing myself though. The wedding band actually goes on first because that way it is closest to your heart. (That's what I was taught anyway) But....if you prefer it the other way for looks or some other reason, I doubt the ring police wil come knocking at your door! :)

  • The wedding band is closest to you, then your engagement ring.

    (that's the way I learned)

  • I think your wedding ring goes on,then your engagement ring,because it puts your wedding band closer to your heart.

  • According to the etiquette book by Emily I still have one:

    "Wedding band is placed on your third finger left hand during the ceremony. After the ceremony you many slip your engagement ring on as well. Your wedding band should always remain first on the hand to represent that nothing comes before your vows."

    Old and corny..but that's what it says

  • i wear my engagement ring then my wedding band only engagement ring had to be like half a size bigger because the half size smaller was way too tight so my wedding band keeps my engagement ring from flying off!

  • wedding band is supposed to be "closer to your hears" the wedding band goes on first and the engagement ring is put on after
