Who puts the ring on first bride or groom?

Traditionally, the groom goes first in the exchange of rings. Although most couples choose to follow tradition, there’s no rule that says you can’t switch things up. If one of you is more comfortable than the other in front of an audience, then you might want that person to go first, so the other will be less nervous.

Traditionally, the groom says his vows and gives his ring to the bride first. So after the groom has put the ring on your finger your officiant will ask you for your ring.

Does the bride or groom buy the groom’s ring?

Tradition has it that the bride (and/or her family) buys the groom’s wedding ring, while the groom (and/or his family) pays for the bride’s. Again, this language is binary—the real moral of the story is that each person traditionally pays for the other person’s ring.

What color should the groom’s tie be?

We’ve seen the groom wear a tie in the main wedding color while the groomsmen wear an accent color. Or, for a more traditional look, the groom can wear a neutral color tie (black, white or ivory) while the groomsmen wear a tie that matches the wedding color. For an ombre look, put everyone in a different color tie.
