Why not? I think Mrs Star had her sister be the ring bearer! It’s not a gender specific title 🙂

Absolutely. There’s nothing stating anywhere that the ringbearer can only be a boy.

Very cute!!! I think “ringbearer” sounds appropriate. It doesn’t indicate gender.

I think that would be so cute.  I was just looking at pics from a former schoolmates wedding, and she had a “flower boy” who dropped feathers instead of petals!

I think that would be awesome!!! I think the only restrictions in regards to gender are the ones you set yourself.  One of my fiance’s “grooms men” is one of his long time female friends.  She’s going to wear the groom’s color.  🙂

I think have whoever in the party that’ll make the day feel special.  And it sounds like having your niece being the ring bearer would be really sweet.

if you could have a DOG ring bearer, then you could most certainly have a girl ring bearer! Smile

I think it would be very sweet to have one of your nieces as the ring bearer.  I have seen weddings where there is no ring bearer and the maid of honor just tied the rings to her wrist with a ribbon.  And, as dovelovesfalcon mentioned, even dogs have acted as ringbearers.  No reason a little girl couldn’t do it.

Absolutely. Much of what some consider essential gender roles divides are complete junk, and there’s perhaps no better example than a small pre-pubescent child. They’re pretty much the same when they’re that young no matter how you slice it. Have a ring girl!
