Sorry to burst your balloon , but she is just too young to be counted on for anything.

Do you have a young boy who could pull her in a wagon if you are determined to have her in the wedding?

Whatever you do, do not give a child the real rings. She may kick up a heck of a fuss when someone tries to take them from her, if she manages to get them to the font of the church at all.

Have the Best Man and the MOH carry the real rings.

@secretbee33:  or you could put it in an old camera? like where the film used to go?  then you close the camera shut and they should be safely stored? (you could put them in a little sachet and add some cotton balls to prevent them from making a  lot of noise)

@secretbee33:  a friend of mine had a ring-bearer and she was a little over a year… the girl’s mom was standing at the front and she ran towards her, the rings were fixed to a corsage/pincushion around her wrist. I’m sorry I can’t find a picture of the exact thing, I’m pretty sure it was DIY, but it looked a little like this:

with two ribbons for the rings, of course…

@secretbee33:  Could you just maybe put them on a pretty chain or ribbon, and have her wear them as a necklace?  A ribbon would likely be easier to quickly remove for the ceremony so you don’t have to fiddle with those stinking clasps.  Have the ribbon coordinate with your wedding colors, perhaps?

@secretbee33:  giving rings to a one year old sounds like a disaster. Honestly, that doesn’t make any sense. At least, if you insist on using her in your bridal processional, give her faux rings.

We are having an 18 monthold in our wedding.  While she will be dressed up like a cute flower girl, she will have a teddy bear and most likely be carried by her mom or dad who are a bridesmaid and groomsmen respectively.  Counting on anyone under the age of 5 to “preform” on your wedding day is risky at best.  I definatly wouldn’t trust her with the actual rings as I have seen grown men forget them. 

I like our teddybear idea.  With any kid under the age of 2, EVERYTHING will go into their mouth at some point.  So what ever you pick out, I would definatly think about if it can go into their mouth and not be a choking hazard, poisonous, or just plain get too icky. 

Since it is my FI’s niece, I want her in the pictures as it will be a family thing, but I’m of the opinion if she does not want to preform that day, she is more than welcome to just sit with her other grandparents who are invited.   If you have a 1 year old in your wedding party, please look yourself in the mirror and make sure that you are okay with them not wanting to preform infront of a crowd.  It’s scarry, and they might not want to.

I think the hollowed out book idea is adorable… Maybe have a ribbon attached inside so the rings can be tied inside like a bookmark from top to bottom suspended in the hole…. We used fake rings for our ring bearer and had the best man keep the real thing. We used a wood heart wrapped in twine and a lace ribbon holding the rings.
