I saw an article somewhere where the bride and groom were responsible for each other’s rings.  The bride tied the grooms around her wrist on a really lovely ribbon, and I thought it looked darling.  Could be a possibility if you’re skipping the ring bearer entirely.  You could do a ring-warming too, where the rings are passed around your guests and each guest says a little prayer or well wishes while holding the rings.  Then they make their way back to you when it’s time.

I always liked the ring-warming idea, but it sketches me out a little to think that my ring could be floating around somewhere unguarded.  It might work better for a small wedding 🙂

Scroll to the bottom of this post from Miss Cheese. What a cute idea!

Ok, so I was going to suggest a bird nest, but that was already taken.  But, my idea isn’t quite as unique.  If you aren’t going the ring bearer root, the groom’s ring could be tied to the bridal bouquet and the bride’s ring could be tied to the base of the boutonniere.  If you are going with a cute little ring bearer, you could try tying the rings to the binding of a Bible or favorite book.

Here’s a variation on tying the rings around your wrist with a ribbon — hiding them in a corsage! Brides or one of the moms could be really cute, especially if you have a tiny/nonexistent bridal party.

I also love the nest bowl from etsy! I would use it to hold my daily jewelry on my dresser after the wedding was over…

I had a bride once glue a ribbon onto a child size Rugby ball…. obviously you could also use a football, soccer ball, basketball, etc…

I’d post a link or picture but I don’t want to get kicked off since I’m trying to actually be a bride on here 😉

i read somewhere that they tied their rings onto a foot-tall Optimus Prime toy. How cool is that?!

We used a vintage book that totally reflected our story (you can read about why I picked it on our website).Pardon the ugly way the rings are tied on. This was our groomsman’s not-so-pretty method of making sure they stay put 😛
