My flower girls aren’t allowed to drop anything (we’d have to pick it up later — no thanks!) so each will carry a small bouquet. My oldest flower girl will present her bouquet to my mom, the next oldest will present hers to my fiance’s mom, and the youngest will present her bouquet to her mother.
So. The ring bearer. What would he carry the rings on that could be given to his mother? A pillow would be, like, kind of weird. I thought flowers but then, um, that makes him a flower boy and I think his father would have a problem with that (love homophobia!!). Any ideas? Something sweet, not too girly…???
Your thoughts are much appreciated!

Why can’t he carry the the rings on a traditional ring pillow or in a beautiful ring box and not present anything to his mom? I’m not sure I understand why he would need to present something to his mother if the first two flower girls will not be presenting anything to their mothers (unless some of these children are siblings and all mothers of the children in the wedding will be accommodated in this manner.) If that is the case, maybe he could carry a flower ON the ring pillow (along with the rings — stand-in ones, I presume) and stop and present the flower to his mother before he proceeds to stand in his place as ring bearer.

I think we’re going to do something like this (stolen from another thread):
The flower girls are all my nieces; the youngest of them will give something to their mom. The reason I want the ring bearer to give something to HIS mom is that she will feel left out if we don’t and will pitch a fit. SO. We’re going to find a box similar to the one above, and put a little bouquet inside. The ring bearer will carry the box down the aisle, give the rings to me and my fiance, and then give his mom the bouquet within. I think it will work fine!

That should work very well! 🙂
