Does the Ring Bearer Have to Carry the Rings Down the Aisle?

Having a ring bearer is an adorable addition to just about every wedding out there. However, doing this can come with a lot of nervousness as well – will the ring bearer have to carry the rings down the aisle?

We have some of the answers you are looking for – so read on and find out more.

  • – No, he doesn’t. If your ring bearer is very young, it is perfectly understandable if you are nervous about him losing the rings. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you have to skip the ring bearer tradition altogether.
  • – The best way to do this is by having the ring bearer walk down with a simple, pretty ring pillow, but making sure the actual rings are in your Best Man’s pockets. This way, you will get the cuteness of the little boy walking down the aisle without the risks associated with it.
  • – If the ring bearer is a bit older, he can definitely carry the rings on his own. Still, it is a good idea to tie down the rings to the pillow to prevent them from slipping away. If you want the rings to be even more secure, you can place them in a pouch (so that you don’t have to search for very small items in case they slip away).
  • – If you opt for the last option, make sure to ask your photographer to shoot some pictures of the wedding ring pillow and rings before you tuck them away!
