Engagement Ring Etiquette or Just Practicality?
I was reading this online poll and wanted to share the “practical answer” with you. Choices are:
a. Move it to your right hand. The traditional, proper etiquette answer is to move it to your right hand.
One respondent commented that her right ring finger is larger than her left – that’s particularly true if you’re right handed.
b. Remove it or leave it at home – why? You have a much better chance of losing it – and your wedding day is the best day in your life to show it off.
c. Leave it on your left hand. That gets my vote. NOT because you can change it later, but let’s help out our grooms here – that bling is a target for him. He’s not expecting it on your RIGHT hand or not at all.
But my secret tip here – put a little lotion on your ring finger just before the ceremony – AND the groom’s to help make that ring placement just a little easier. No lotion in the groom’s room – a dab of liquid soap will do.
