Planning out your wedding can be a time for you to let your creativity shine. There is nothing wrong with stepping outside of the traditional boundaries to give your wedding some flair. If having a singular ringbearer wobbling down the aisle with your ring on a pillow doesn’t spark your interest, you have options!
Using a Clever Sign
You may love the cute idea of having a ring bearer but get nervous at the thought of it. A little one carrying those expensive rings can be a big responsibility. Have you seen the swarms of ideas on Pinterest lately? Among them, you are sure to find sweet little men with signs in place of rings. Some of them have cute memos on them such as “Have you seen the rings?” This can make a clever play on the whole concept, getting a few chuckles along the way.
Selecting an Adult
No rule says there is a particular age for bearing the rings. Not every family is filled with little people. Or on the contrary, maybe there are too many to choose only one. Nobody likes playing favorites. If you don’t have a little lad to take the duty or don’t feel comfortable letting a young person have the rings, choose an adult! You can even make a pun out of it.
Carry a Ring Box
There is no rule set in stone that the ringbearer has to bring a pillow with your ring on top. It does put your valuables in a vulnerable position. Instead of your rings being exposed to the elements, consider a closed box. This way, your rings stay safe, and you can add a different element to your aesthetic. You can even spruce up the concept by customizing the box to match your theme.
Add a Few Extra
If you want to make it a party, add a few helpers. No one says the ringbearer has to fly solo. You can make your own little group of ringbearers that work together to bring the jewels. Since not all of them can hold the rings, you can give something special to each one. That can help all participants to feel equally important.
Elect Your Pet
If you have a furry best friend, they may be the man for the job. Not only is the idea of your pet walking down the aisle to deliver your rings delightful, but it’s also equally meaningful. Adding your pet to the equation can be cute, but it also should be thoughtfully planned. You will need someone else to help your buddy once they get the job done.
