engagement ring in nature

Q: Should we both wear our rings in our engagement photos?

A: Traditionally, only the bride-to-be wears an engagement ring until the wedding day, when wedding rings are exchanged and both bride and groom wear wedding rings for the rest of their lives. Women also typically wear their engagement rings in addition to their wedding rings for the rest of their lives because when ya got it, flaunt it…right?!

However, you do not have to be a conventional bride and groom if you don’t want to be—there is no “Wedding Force” who will haul you away if you break from tradition. My brother is engaged and he wears a mens’ engagement ring that his fiancée gave him. Nobody minds, it’s a token of endearment and an expression of who they are as an (untraditional!) couple.
