Does a bride wear her engagement ring to her wedding?

My sister is about to get married and she thinks that she doesn't wear any ring at all to the wedding, but I think she's supposed to. Is there a rule on this?

  • I dont think there is a rule, but I wore mine. And then after the wedding i put the band on first, then the engagement ring. Whatever she is comfortable with, its her wedding.

  • According to the bridal handbook (yes, I had one, LOL), you ARE supposed to wear your engagement ring, but NOT on your left ring finger. You're supposed to wear it on your RIGHT ring finger. Who knows why, though. Some people wear it on their left though.

  • I wore mine on my right ring finger. It is so that the wedding band can be slipped onto the left ring finger, then the engagement ring put on next, so that the wedding band is near to the heart, or more logically, so the engagement ring can be removed when needed for grubby work or washing up without needing to remove the wedding band, too. The engagement ring is usually more elaborate and bigger and so would catch sticky or nasty stuff.

  • Your engagement ring goes on your right hand during the ceremony and then after the ceremony you move it over top of your wedding band.

  • Yep, wear it on the right ring finger... because the wedding band is supposed to go on your left ring finger first (to be on the inside) and then you switch the engagement ring back over to go on top of the wedding band.
