I am not having a flower girl…. my little boy will be the ring bearer and I would really like to use my nephew (my MOH’s little boy) in the wedding somehow. I’ve seen pictures of boys carrying a little sign that says “Here Comes The Bride”. What’s everyone think of this? Cute? Weird?
Any suggestions on how I could make a beachy sign? If I do this, I don’t want it to be like a banner or anything, something more unique….I’m stumped.

I’m doing this on Saturday because my neice is older than a typical flower girl and I didn’t feel like making her throw petals on the ground. 🙂
I wish I could upload a picture! I got if off Etsy and I was really happy with the quality. (Seller ourhobbytoyourhome)

I did this for my nephew for our wedding. I did it as a pennant(sp) triangle on a wood stick that he should have held up in the air but he drug it along instead. It was so darn cute! Everyone loved it because they hadn’t seen it before.
I say go for it!

A flat piece of driftwood seems like the obvious solution to me.
Or, perhaps a driftwood frame for a sign.

I loved that look, but decided to use painted parasols for my 2 flowergirls. One will read ‘Here Comes’ and the other ‘the Bride’
I can’t wait!!!

Oh the little boy in the photo is ADORABLE!!!
Great ideas! FH had mentioned driftwood too, I’ll have to look in to that!

Great idea, i’m doing this for my son as well – one question for you – on your programs, if you are using them, what is this role called? I have no idea how to list him and signbearer is just wrong.

Wow, Love this idea. Lot’s of nephews I need to incorporate into my wedding. But the youngest is in 3rd grade. Is that too old? Oldest in 5th grade. Having them be greeters and ushers…. They are at a point where they think every thing is pretty lame. Not the youngest. He loves everything. But the two older will think they are too cool the walk down the aisle with a sign. Any suggestions? Egh… Boys. 🙂

@souliganprincess: I actually saw this question on another bee’s post “What do you call this boy?” I think the bee’s answered that he would be called a “page”, one bee suggested just calling him “Cutie with the sign” I still do not know if that bee was serious or not…but I thought it was adorable and will probably use that in my program. lol but my wedding is not formal or traditional so I think I can get away with calling him that. : )

@jerrbear585: Oh no, I do not think the 3rd grader is too old to do this…for the other two I would have them maybe hand out programs if you are using them? or just be greeters if you are not using programs, they could just b there to greet people and welcome them….or you could use them as ushers if you think they are capable of doing so. The older ones may feel “too cool” to walk down the aisle like you said so I would use them in another way.

I am going to be using this idea in our wedding as well. We are having our nephews (then 3 & 4) be ringbearers and then my children (then 6 year old son & 10 year old daughter) will replace the flowergirl concept by holding the sign. I am designing it to have “Happily ever after” on the back with a piece of fabric that can be flipped over to cover “Here comes the bride” for our walk down the aisle as Mr. & Mrs. The only issue I am having is find a material that is sturdy yet has a bit of movement to it as I am requesting it to be used on our vehicle. (To prevent our friends from going overboard with decorating!)
Can’t wait to see how all of your signs turn out! 🙂 Yay!

I’m doing this too. I searched for vinyl letters online and found a site that cut the words out for me in the font, color and size I want. I am going to adhere them to a wood plaque that I’m painting ivory, I found it at Michael’s craft store. What if you found something similiar and paint it with the crackle spray paint or distressed spray paint? Or just paint it and use a little sand paper on it to make it look washed out?
I’m putting mine in the program as “bride announcer”. I have a 9 year old girl carrying it.
