We don’t have a flower girl or ring bearer, does anyone have any creative ideas for walking the rings down the aisle and tossing flowers or should we just skip those parts and give the rings to the Best Man and MOH? Do you think anyone will miss it?

@collieblueeyes: We didn’t. In my opinion those roles aren’t necessary, they’re just for including young kids who are close to you (which we didn’t have, not the right age anyway).
Our best man kept the rings in his pocket. In fact that’s what I thought was traditional anyway.
You could have the bridesmaids spread petals if you really want petals in the aisle.

I don’t think anyone will miss it honestly. We hadn’t planned on a Flower Girl or Ring Bearer, but FI’s cousin said we should have her two kids as Flower Girl and Ring Bearer. I don’t want to cave, Fiance is more likely to cave and have them. If we have a Flower Girl and Ring Bearer I would prefer it to be someone we know more than FI’s cousin’s kids, we rarely see FI’s cousin and see her kids even less often!

As a PP said, we didn’t have either Ring Bearer or FB and just gave them both to the Best Man/BIL to hang on to. Looking back, I kind of wish we had done the Ring Bearer FB girl thing, but that’s just me! 🙂 I think logistically, skipping the kids is totally okay.

we won’t have either. Our two friends will keep our rings with them until we exchange them.

we aren’t having any! I just wont be doing flowers down the aisle and the best man and Maid/Matron of Honor will be keeping our rings 🙂 Or, we may include someone else special to us.. when its time for the rings they can walk up from a front row seat or something and its a nice way to include them! Maybe my little brother, if he doesn’t have to fill in for one of our groomsmen.

@collieblueeyes: traditionally the best man holds both rings anyway. i think the ring bearer is symbolic.
we are not having ring bearers, just a flower girl

We didn’t. We just had the pastor hold the rings.

We didn’t, the best man held the rings yesterday and it was perfect!

We’re just going to give the rings to the best man and the maid of honour to hold. As for flower petals, our venue doesn’t allow it so we won’t miss it. But, if you did want flower petals on the aisle, get someone to scatter them before the ceremony starts 🙂
