    How do you wear your set and why?

    Advertisements
    I saw the other thread about posting pictures of your engagement ring and I was just curious...
    People say they wear their wedding band first then the engagement ring because its closer to your heart, and others say that they wear the engagement ring first then the wedding band cuz the band is sealing the promise........

    what do you ladies think?
    we didnt get a pretty set, cuz dh didnt know whether i would say yes or not, so we bought it in different stores. I started wearing the band on top because i thought it was sealing the promise, but then somebody told me I was wrong and I should wear it the other way around...

    I think it just matters on what you want.

    I wear my wedding band on the inside because its closer to your heart... but I think its just personal preference.

    I actually never heard about the sealing the promise thing before you posted this.

    I wear my band first, otherwise my set would look awkward. I also thought it was to symbolize the wedding ring being closer to my heart...

    I always thought that it was tradition to wear the wedding band first... which is kind of funny because the engagement ring is put on your finger first.. you'd think the wedding band would follow.

    I wear my wedding band first, then I'll have another band on top of it after our big ceremony next month. I wear my engagement ring on my right hand because I like to be different...... and I couldn't find any bands that fit with it.
