If he’s only just turned two then don’t assume he’ll be prepared to carry anything on the day! Two year olds are notoriously unpredictable although very cute. So it may be that he will have to walk down the aisle holding someone’s hand. On the other hand, he might be just fine. However, you really won’t know how he’s going to react when faced with lots of people and a potentially overwhelming event.

So I’d keep your ideas fairly open rather than giving him the sort of responsibility that will take anything away from your ceremony if he isn’t prepared to do it when the time comes.

I would not hang anything around his neck no matter what his mother says.

He could carry a pillow with no ring.

He could hold a helium balloon. You could get one printed with “Here Comes the Bride” or attach a sign or ribbon that says the same.

Also a handkerchief  or box of tissues for the bride, a teddy bear dressed in a tuxedo, a safe.
