What Is the Correct Way to Wear Wedding Rings

To wear the wedding ring on the right hand is more like an inconvenient, a burden; with the right hand you do much more things and so the ring is much more “exposed”. There is a risk to cling in something and moreover to hurt your finger. Besides this, the left and right hand fingers don't have the same measurements- at right are wider- so you better decide about this as changing facts aft that will mean to resize the ring- if you can.To conclude, no one excludes the possibility for the wedding rings to be worn on the right hand. But it is just the tradition and way we are used to believe and judge things.

Correct Way to Wear Wedding Ring

#1. Slide the wedding band onto the left ring finger. The ring finger is next to the pinkie, or fourth from the thumb. Wedding rings are worn on this finger because there is a vein that is said to go from that finger directly to the heart. In some European and Latin countries, the wedding ring is worn on the right ring finger.

Place the engagement ring on top of the wedding band, or wear it on your right hand. Some people choose not to wear their engagement rings all the time, particularly during tasks that might cause harm to the engagement ring. Others, however, believe the wedding band keeps the marriage vows close to the heart and the engagement ring protects it.

Wear the engagement ring on your right hand, or avoid wearing it, during the wedding ceremony. This makes it easier, and more meaningful, for the groom to slide the wedding band in place.
