Google+ Southern Spotting :: Ring(ing) Bearer - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

Remember yesterday’s Southern Spotting? Well, Chelsey + Jason provided us with a double feature!

I love their rambunctious ring bearer! Instead of bringing the rings, be brought the ring, if you know what I mean. While not for everyone, this could be perfect for those couples with, say, more energetic nephews. I’m pretty sure ring bearers in the 8-10 set would think this was the coolest job ever (much cooler than carrying a girly ring pillow, anyway).

Love this? Check out the rest of the details on photographer Katie Rivers’ blog here! And tell me: are you having a ring bearer? What will they be carrying down the aisle, if anything?

    We are having my fiance’s nephew, as our ring bearer. His sister will be our flower girl. While she will be 3-1/2 by the time of our wedding, he will be a whopping year and two months old. At this point, we’re just hoping he can walk, so carrying anything seemed like too lofty of a goal.

    I’ve been wondering the same thing- do most ring bearers these days actually bring the rings down the aisle? I’m trying to decide what to do … and if I don’t give him our rings, what do you give the little guy? (he’s 5 years old) Any suggestions are appreciated!

      Hi Kristin! I think a lot of ring bearers do still carry the rings down the aisle (some couples given them fake substitutes, but that seems a little strange to me). I think the trick is to hand off the pillow/bowl/rings at the very last moment before you send him off down the aisle. Best of luck!

    My mom saw this idea a few years ago and since then I have planned to have my little cousin act as “the bell ringer” for my wedding one day! He is a spunky little thing and this role will fit his personality just perfectly. Shhh! I don’t want my secret to get out!
