Fun Wedding Fact Friday!

Ever wonder why the wedding ring is worn on the left hand?

Engagement and wedding rings are worn on the 4th finger of the left hand because it was thought that a vein in that finger led directly to the heart. The vein was called vena amori, or the vein of love, and early writings on matrimonial procedure suggested that it would be appropriate for one’s wedding ring to be worn on that special finger. This belief originated in ancient Egyptian times and influenced the modern wedding ring custom in the Western part of the world.
