What to do with your engagement ring during the ceremony

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have a silly question.  I know that people typically wear their wedding band under the engagement ring.  So what do you do with your engagement ring during the ceremony?

I think I'm just going to wear mine on my right hand and then after I will move my engagment ring back to my left hand with my wedding band.

Hi ladies! I was planning on doing the same thing. Wear my Ering on my right hand during the ceremony, then transfer it back to the left hand after. However, the shape of my Ering doesn't go with the band we're getting. And, we're actually having the little courthouse ceremony first (possibly even several months far in advance). So, for the courthouse ceremony (very informal, but hey, what not?), we're getting me a set of rose gold/pink sapphire bands for the legal ceremony. I'll keep the rings on my right hand, and then just have my left hand ready to go for the "real" wedding in Mexico. :)

I will also have my engagement ring on my right hand until after the wedding band is in place.  There is wording that the officiant can say such that your fiance/husband places the wedding band and then moves the engagement ring as part of the ceremony.  Here is a quote from the "Share your ceremony script" thread:

 

"The engagement ring is a symbol of promise and intention. Now the intention is realized and the promise fulfilled. GROOM, please place the engagement ring on BRIDEâ€s finger over her wedding band to symbolize that the love that brought you together will always protect and sustain your marriage."

I absolutely love this wording and will be adding it to my ceremony.

I just wore my ering like normal, and had the wedding band be put on over it, and as soon as the ceremony was over, I just flipped them around. Easy Peasy. No aditional quote from officiant needed.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
