Ring Arrangement: What is the right way to wear a wedding ring set?

Q: What is the proper way to wear the wedding ring set?  Is it with the wedding band on first with the engagement ring closest to the knuckles or does the engagement ring go on first?  My best friend is getting married in eight weeks and recently asked me this question.

A: The wedding ring is worn closest to the heart, or first on the finger, with the engagement ring closest to the knuckles. Your friend would remove her engagement ring just before the ceremony, transferring it to another finger, so that the wedding ring can easily be slipped on during the ceremony.  She then would transfer the engagement ring back when she had a moment to do so.
