Does anyone know if it is bad luck to wear your wedding ring before the day? my h2b has said this evening that he wants to start wearing his, I don't mind but I want to see what other people think?

Being honest I have never heard of anyone wearing there wedding ring before the wedding and I think it's a bit weird to do so, x

Thats okay, I think my h2b wants to wear it because i'm going away for four months come november with the RAF, so i'm always there with him, all opinions are welcome :)

I wouldn't say it was bad luck, however I'd possibly think it'd make it a bit less special when you were married if he'd already been wearing it for that long.... xx

Have to agree that it would be make it a bit less special since you aren't married yet... but equally very very sweet that he wants to wear it whilst you are gone :wub: I know a few ppl on here have given their h2b's engagement rings so its kind of similar. Go for it!

Uhm, never heard of it and think it would be silly to wear one if not married but i guess it's up to you guys. I'm looking forward to the day when H2B slides that ring onto my finger offically and i get to wear for life :):) xx

Maybe buy him a different one to wear so that the wedding ring is still special. That way he still gets to wear one but it saves THE one for the day. :)

Its very sweet that he wants to do that so he feels close to you!! But its not something i would do or want H2B to do as said above i want that moment we put the rings on for the first time, to be when were stand at that alter. But thats just my opinion i guess its really up to you guys...But like others have suggested how about and engegement ring#??

I'm not sure if its bad luck but i wouldnt want H2N wearing his before then wedding were not married til then. Although H2B does have a plain titanium bamd that i bought him when we got engaged so he'd probably wear that. How about buying him a cheaper ring as a symbol of your love for him that he can wear until the day you marry, that way your love is always with him and he doesn damaged or fade the gold of the ring you have for the wedding.

I wouldn't want to wear mine before the wedding, either. Maybe you could buy him a ring to wear while you're gone?

i think it is a very sweet sentiment but im not sure i would like h2b wearing it before we were married because i wouold want it to be special for when we were actually married. perhaps you could get him a photo keyring or something so he can look at pictures whenever he likes, i did that for h2b when he went to the falklands and he said it really kept him going. just a thought xx

I agree with MrsKaosTheory, don't really believe in susperstition but just think it might take the shine off of it a little (if you'll excuse the pun! :lol: ) x So sweet that he wants to though :wub:

Yeah i think your wedding ring is a sign of being married so would be weird wearing it before the day. Does your h2b have an engagement ring? Maybe buy him a special ring something to have while your away? My h2b has an engagement ring that i chose for him

my hubby wore his before the day but its cause was also his engagement ring.......... he has spasms which causes him to fall over so a normal ring wouldnt last so when we got engaged i brought him a tunstan ring which is meant to be indestructable so we kept the same for both. he did however take it off about a month before the wedding to make it special on the day xxx

Thanks for your comments ladies, we have chatted about it and decided that he won't wear it until the actual day, although I have said if he wants to wear it whilst I'm away then I don't mind :wub: Great to know he's keen to wear it thou lol

At first I couldn't understand his reasoning for wanting to wear it before the big day, but given him going away with the RAF, I think its totally sweet that he wants to wear it whilst he's with you. Aww bless him, he sounds like a yickle luv :wub:

Don't think I have ever heard of it being bad luck, but i think it will just make it more special handing it over on the day of the wedding, it will really mean something to you both them, where as if he is planning on wearing it now, it just won't be as exciting! xx

that's really sweet that he wants to be reminded of you whilst you're away but as the others have said it wouldn't be as special on the day itself, i got my h2b an engagement ring which he loves as it shows you're together :wub:
