    My fiance wants me to wear both wedding band and engagement ring. I dont think this is correct and it may be a little tacky. I thought you are supposed to wait to wear the band until after the ceremony. Please let me know what you guys are doing. I think he is just trying to get me to show it off but I am trying to teach him to be patient. Maybe if he sees what the forum thinks he may reconsider.

    Thanks everyone

      In my opinion, you should wait until after the ceremony to wear your wedding band...but if you're OK with it, I guess you could do whatever you want (I'm not very traditional). But it's more fun if you wait I think! Plus people might be confused...if you wear it now, everyone will think you're already married...?

        Unless you plan on adding another band when you are married, then I wouldn't wear the one now. Like PP said, people will assume you are already married (not sure if that makes a difference to you)

          I know not everyone is Catholic or Christian but I THINK the meaning of the band going on at the ceremony is the same. Its supposed to be blessed and "seal' or "unit" you two. I copied and pasted this below, I search google for "symbolic meaning behind wedding bands". I always thought that it was a "uniting" type tradition, ?


          "Early Christian marriages included a ritual that landed the wedding band on the third finger: As the priest recited, 'In the name of the Father, the Son, and the holy Ghost,' he took the ring and touched the thumb, the first finger, and then the second finger. When he said, 'Amen,' he placed the ring on the third finger, sealing the marriage."

            I would wait to put it on because it will be more special. i think it would lose it's meaning.

              I can understand his excitement! I'm guessing he worked really hard to get you a BEAUTIFUL bridal set... and he he waited for the right moment to propose... ect.

              I don't think it will lose meaning if you wear it now... but like everyone has said, people might think you are married already (at least, people who don't know you).

              In reality, I don't think its going to cause a huge uproar with people -- I've never just met someone and said "you have a wedding band on - are you REALLLY married?"

              If it makes you personally uncomfortable ... I think that is the only thing that should matter... and you shouldn't wear it.

                we're doing our legal ceremony before we get to Cabo, so technically i'll be married but i'm still going to wait until after the ceremony to wear my band. it'll seem more official then

                  I think he just wants you to show off your bling...I would definetely wait till after the ceremony.

                      I agree with many and I think that the band should be placed on your finger after you're married.
