Should I wear my Engagement Ring on my Wedding Day?

Some women opt not to wear their Engagement Ring at all on their Wedding Day, whilst others will move their Engagement Ring to the ring finger on their right hand during the ceremony so that their Wedding Band will glide on unhindered.

The latter tends to be the most popular option for brides. Remember that the photographer will want to take shots of your rings together on the day. Not to mention how wonderful it will be to wear your new Wedding Ring alongside your Engagement Ring for the first time.

Can I wear just my wedding ring after we’re married?

This is down to the preference of the wearer however most women will move their Engagement Ring back to the ring finger on their left hand after the ceremony. The Wedding ring should be worn below the Engagement Ring as it is closer to the heart that way. Some women decide to wear their Engagement Ring only and others will choose to wear just their Wedding Ring. So, in these modern times there are no set rules.
