omglauren:  She is still the ring bearer, either way. We may have a girl ring bearer too, a 2 year old, and I was thinking of calling her the ring girl.

Just call her “ring bearer.” The phrase “ring girl” makes me think of the ladies who hold up the signs in boxing matches.

I would call her a bridesmaid or junior bridesmaid.  If there is no ring bearer in th wedding, the MOH and BM usually carry the rings, but we don’t give them a different title. It’s just one of their duties.

omglauren:  Probably a dumb question… why do you need to call her anything? Is it for writing on an order of service/thanking her for carrying the ring or just when you talk about her generally? 🙂

No to ring girl. Yes to her either being a junior bridesmaid or not calling her anything. Just thanking her.

If you were looking for something cutesy/funny, maybe the “Ring Wrangler” or the “Band Aide”?  Haha, ok that might be too much…

Is “Ring Attendant” too stuffy?  “Ring Keeper” makes me think of a goalie or Harry Potter, but could work.  The “Band Bearer” might differentiate it enough that she doesn’t feel like it’s a title for a little boy.  “Ring Maid” versus Bridesmaid?
