I was chatting with some BMs this past weekend about the wedding and they said that when it was time for the rings, my ring bearer looked dissapointed/confused when he saw the Best Man hand over the rings.
I feel really bad 🙁
My nephew was our ring bearer. He is 6 years old and a good kid but I didn’t want to worry about him losing the rings. He’ll forgive me right? His birthday is next week, he might be getting a better present due to my guilt.
As a side note, the bartender said that at one point in the wedding, the ring bearer walked up to the bar, looked around (as if checking to see if anyone was watching him) and said “my Daddy said I could get him a beer” LOL!! I’ll have to call my brother tonight and see if there is any truth to that.

Aww… poor kid! And yeah, he’ll forgive you and forget pretty soon too.

Aw! That’s too cute. If it makes him feel any better, let him know I don’t trust my 29 y.o. MOH to not loose the rings, so our BM is getting to hold on to them too 🙂 It’s not just the 6 year old kiddos!

Aww, he’ll get over it! Just buy him a wicked awesome b-day present & you’ll be his favorite Aunt all over again lol
I voted no: our ring bearer will be 5 at the time & I’d rather he not hold the rings.

Aw, poor baby. I guess you coulda told him it wasn’t the real ring but I wouldn’t of thought to tell him either. I’m gonna have my ring bearer bring the real ring because he’ll be in a red wagon anyway. Hopefully he doesn’t throw the pillow at someone in the aisle seats but either way, I’m pretty sure the ring will get to the right person. The ring bearer’s father is the best man so he’ll prolly give it right to him because he won’t know anyone else up there. Should be interesting. Don’t worry about what happened. I imagine he’ll forget all about it. But the extra nice gift can’t hurt :0)

I never considered not having our ring bearer hold the rings, he’s just 5, but seriously, what could happen? He’ll be given them like two seconds before he walks down the aisle, not really concerned, haha.

haha minneapolitan, you aren’t around kids much are you? Or maybe you’re around good ones. Asking “what could happen” is like asking for trouble with kids lol Even seemingly flawless things get messed up by little kiddos :p
I didn’t have a ring bearer, but if I did, I wouldn’t have let him hold the real rings!

of course he’ll forgive you!
He just probably thought the title was a little deceptive! lol about the beer. Sounds like a great kid, just be sure to tell him what a great job he did and how proud of him you are. THOSE compliments will go a long way!

My ring bearers (there will be 2) are going to be 3 years old. I can’t trust them with the rings. I’m hoping by the time they see CAKE they’ll forget all about it.
Your nephew sounds adorable! =)

I think if you just explain to him that he did a great job it will all be fine 🙂

I think if you pitch it to him as if you forgot to put them on the pillow and the best man already had them, a little white lie might not hurt! Make sure to thank him for doing an extra-great job, and a little extra on the birthday present couldn’t hurt!

I voted no….our wedding hasn’t happened yet, but we’re planning on having the rings in the best man’s pocket so they don’t get lost.
