Wedding Rings in New Orleans

The custom of exchanging wedding rings dates back hundreds of years, originating in Europe. The ring is traditionally worn on the ring finger of the left hand, as it was believed that this finger had a direct connection to the wearer's heart. Interestingly, only the bride originally wore a wedding ring, with the tradition evolving in the United States of America in the mid-20th century to also include a ring for the groom.
