When it comes to weddings, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is who will put on your wedding ring. Traditionally, the bride wears her wedding band on her left hand, but there’s no rule against it going on the other hand as well. So what’s the best way to decide?
When it comes to wearing a wedding band, there are a few traditions that come along with it. If you’re right-handed, your wedding band traditionally goes on your left hand. If you’re left-handed, your wedding band goes on your right hand.
There are a couple of theories as to why this is the tradition. One theory is that the bride’s wedding ring should be closest to her heart, and since most people are right-handed, the husband’s wedding band goes on the left hand so it’s closer to the bride’s heart. Another theory is that the husband’s ring is placed on the left hand so it can be easily taken off during battle if needed. Whichever reason you choose to believe, the tradition of wearing a wedding band on your left hand is still around today.
