Wedding Ring - Differing Traditions Generally accepted as common knowledge, the wedding ring, in many places referred to as the wedding band, is a ring usually made of a precious material such as gold and silver. Depending on the culture's tradition and customs, it may be worn on the third finger, more commonly known as the ring finger, on either the left or right hand. The wedding ring symbolizes a commitment by one person to another. In most Anglo - Franco cultures, such as the United States, UK, and Western Europe, the wedding ring is worn on the left hand. While many Eastern European cultures such as Slovakia, Germany, Finland, Russia, and Poland, the wedding ring is worn on the right hand.
Tradition and Culture: It has been debated by many scholars when the practice of using rings as symbols of weddings started. The fact remains that almost every country and culture in the planet right now would require rings to bind the couple together. The ceremony may vary because of tradition, religion, or culture; but the presence of wedding rings is guaranteed.
In both the United Kingdom and the United States, the responsibility of caring for the soon to be joined man and wife falls to the best man. The best man is responsible for carrying the rings to the altar and presenting them to the individual officiating, who in turn will present the rings to the bride and groom so that they may exchange them. In some instances, the rings may be carried on a pillow by a \"ring bearer\" usually a male child, who will present them to the best man at the altar.
