The first thing that came to my mind is – what a cool kid!!

How about a Spiderman pillow pal. You could sew a piece of string to the pillow hands and then tie the fake rings together to make it look like Spiderman is carrying them. When the ceremony is over a little snip and the Spiderman pillow pal is as good as new.

Or would you be willing to have him wear Spiderman gloves. Then sew one fake ring to where the web spinners would be. Every time he turned over his hand to “shoot a web” the rings would be seen.

*As a minister I must say this… please do not give your real rings to a child. Unless you can handle them being lost or damaged.*

We considered having my nephew walk down the isle with our dog, and having the pillow attached to the dog.  He LOVES our dog, and never wants to leave when he comes to visit– and my Fiance wanted to include the pup in the ceremony too– so this was the best of both worlds.

Not much real advice as a bride who had a ring bearer fail his mission to make it down the aisle. Complete and total melt down as we lined up to walk out.

Just wanted to say that he sounds like an awesome kid who is excited to have a “role” in the wedding and you should play off that. I would totally let him wear a cape or something so he could be the “super hero guarding the rings” or something like that to keep him excited about it.
