So how does the whole engagement/wedding ring thing work?

Ok, so does he propose with the engagement ring, then give her the wedding ring? How does it work?

  • You've basically got it. Engagement ring is at time of proposal. It tends to be the fancy one, which is sort of showing a commitment level, and also based on our cultural adoption of the diamond industry's marketing push to make diamond engagement rings standard.

    The wedding ring is given during the marriage service, and nowadays she usually gives him one too. It tends to be a much plainer band, perhaps with something inscribed inside.

  • Engagement ring is the ring that promises marriage at a future date. It's the ring that the guy presents when he proposes. A wedding ring is exchanged during the marriage ceremony itself, and both the man and woman exchange rings at that time.

    You don't get the wedding ring until you have the wedding.

  • Engagement rig has the diamond, it is a "back off" sign to other males. the wedding ring happens on the wedding day and is a simple gold ring.

  • there's no set way it has to be done... but usually the guy proposes, with an engagement ring. then you get the wedding band at the wedding itself. pretty easy :) pretty beautiful!

  • No engagement ring at the time of proposing.. Wedding ring at the time of marriage (on your wedding day) .. It's called the exchanging of rings. :)

  • You give her an engagement ring hen you propose. Then you give her a different ring at your wedding.
    That's how it traditionally goes but some people reuse the same ring.
