Rings/ceremony question

So, we do not have a ring bearer, and our attendants will not be standing up with us during the ceremony, they'll stand up at the front until I arrive and then will file into the front row seats for the ceremony.  SO, who holds onto our wedding rings? Also, do I move my engagement ring to another finger and put in on with the wedding band after the ceremony?  I know these seem like super small details, but it's been on my mind lately. Thanks!

    You could either have BM hold rings and just hand them up when your ready, or FI could keep them in his pocket.  Yes, you're supposed to put your e-ring on right hand until after the ceremony b/c the wedding band is supposed to be closest to your heart.

    You can give them to the officiant, have the officiant call someone up or have FI hold them. It doesn't really matter.

    You can also do whatever you like with your ring. I intended to switch mine to my right hand and completely forgot until about 1 second before the ring exchange. I tried to get it off quickly when I realized and suddenly couldn't! H just put it on over my e-ring and then I switched it afterward. I'm pretty sure we're still married. =p

    We're having our MOH & BM hold our rings.  And I'm wearing my e-ring on my left hand, and just switching the wedding band to be the closest one right after the ceremony.

    I didn't wear either ring and had DH put them both on separately during the ceremony.  I think maybe the 'traditional' thing is to wear it on the right hand, but it's whatever you want in this case!

    Also, I would just have the officiant hold on to the rings - in our case (and I think in many ceremonies) the officiant asks for the rings during the ceremony (which is when the MOH and BM got them out), so he ended up holding them and handing them to us anyway.

    I second what Sarack said, I went to a wedding where the priest had the rings in his hand so he could bless them.  I'm going to where my engagement ring on my left hand and after I walk down the aisle reverse the rings.

    i did what amandsw did...no ring, then put them on seprately since they are seperate entities in our relationship and have different meanings.. honestly i have no ideas where my rings were...i know they were on the RB pillow (not fakes), but i don't remember when our RB actually gave it to us.......=P
