For some reason I always thought it was distinct to Orthodox Christianity rather than a geographical thing, but I could be totally wrong. I don't know any Orthodox Americans, let alone married ones, to stare at their hands.

I'm Orthodox and we wear the wedding bands on our right hand and they are placed on our right hand during the ceremony.

I thought it was, too. My friend married a Greek-American guy in an Orthodox Church, and I think they did rings on right hand then and switched to left hand later just because they wanted to.
