KateriPetrie:  when my FI was a groomsmen, they had the last groomsman hold the rings and then all the guys passed it down to the best man who took the padlock off the rings. It was kinda quirky but cute!

You can have one of the oldest flower girl carry the ring instead…that would still be really cute.

KateriPetrie:  Was the RB actually going to carry the real rings?  We are not giving our RB our rings (the MOH and the Best Man will be carrying them.)  But our RB will turn 3 just after the wedding and we’re taking bets on if he walks or if he runs down the aisle (I’m voting for run.)  

My friends gave their RB the real rings and he lost the bride’s ring somewhere down the aisle (he wasn’t given them until it was time to walk.) They’d been tied to the pillow and the silk ribbon untied, while he walked down the grass aisle.  They had to come back the next day with a metal detector to find it. 

Do you have to have an RB?    We have 3 FGs as well.  🙂

You could have one of the flower girls do it. Then you can have one carry the rings with the other two girls behind her.

Where I live, the Best Man has both rings. The celebrant asks for them at the appropriate time, and the best man hands them over.

You can give one to the MOH, but (again, at least how it’s done here) it’d be a little awkward, because she is holding two bouquets: hers, and then the bride gives her her bouquet at the start of the vows.

I’m not having any wedding party, and was planning on my FI holding my ring and me holding his. Or tying them to the arch above us so when the time comes we can just take them off.

We will be having the last groomsmen hold the rings and pass up to the best man. Since my FI is an only child, he feels as though all of his groomsmen are like his brothers so it’s kind of sweet. We are having no kids so it wouldn’t make sense to have a RB.

Our best man and maid of honor carried the rings.  Often times the best man carries both as bm usually don’t have pockets.  My sister insisted on carrying the ring, so she wrap a really beautiful tulle jewelry bag around her bouquet.  You could also just have the officiant hold the rings until it is time.  Often times people with ring bearers go for this option because they don’t trust a child with expensive jewlery… haha

We had the same issue, but our flower girl backed out… Since I had two ring bearers, my two nephews, my youngest nephew is going to fill in as our “flower boy” haha. He will love it bc he loces to throw things 🙂

If you have three flower girls, have them be a stand in! That would work!! But I would say not have them actually hold the rings like PP said, the best man will hold both rings for our wedding. (The girls dont have pockets or anything.)
