“we gave both of our wedding bands to the best man. This is traditionally who is supposed to hold your wedding rings, but if you’re not having a Best Man there are other options. One is to have your officiant hold them, or alternatively if you’re having a small or family-only wedding you could give them to both of the dads, or both of the moms, and have them bring them up at the appropriate time for a sweet, intimate moment.” – Woman Getting Married
