We had our ring bearers walk down with empty pillows, though a lot of people just tie on a fake ring.  Then the bestman actually had them.

A lot of the pillows have ribbon or lace on them that would be easy to hold the pillow by. And don’t worry about the rings, the best man keeps them with him and hands them to the priest or officiant when it’s time.

Yeah, I agree with heathaah … I wouldn’t give him the rings…even if he had been older, I’d still give them to the best man.

I’ve seen tots go down the aisle in a wagon to make sure that they stay on course.  You could have the rings in there.

I’ve also seen tots refuse to walk the walk when the time comes.  Have a plan B for getting your rings!

this may not be what you are looking for but if you are worried about keeping the rings safe why not give him fake rings, tied to the pillow? and have the Best Man hold on the real rings? – or maybe instead of a pillow you could do a box? maybe with a handle..

These are kina cute – i searched mini suitcases

Dont give him your real rings. Just tie fake rings to the cushion. I dont think anyone gives their real rings to the ring bearer anymore…

We tied fake rings to our ring bearers’ pillows. Our best man had the rings, and I was totally fine with that!

so if you give the ringbearer fake rings, then what happens when he gets to the front of the aisle? Does he just hand over the pillow to someone? Or get seated? Our ringbearer is 2.5 yrs old and we’ll put dummy rings in the ringbearer pillow, but then what do we have him do when he gets up to the altar? (his dad will be walking him down the aisle)

I’m having my MOH’s little man carry our rings in a ring box.  🙂

Our officiant told us to just give ours a pillow, too–the best man will have the real ring! He said it was a very common practice. The kids will be adorable walking down the aisle, but I don’t know if I actually trust them with our rings! 🙂
