We didn’t have a ring bearer. After I told my mom that she informed me that it’s usually just fake rings on the pillow anyway. Seriously, what’s the point then ya know? lol But I understand because no way would I want a 4 year old in charge of very expensive and important jewelry! My Maid/Matron of Honor held onto hubby’s ring (placed it on her finger) and the best man held my ring in his breast pocket. No problems and everything went smoothly!

Our wedding is fairly casual, and I’m tempted to tie them to my garter. That would mess him up!

Our best man carried both rings in his pocket.  As PP mentioned, most people use fake rings on the pillow — just to be safe.  🙂

We’re not having a ring bearer either. The Maid/Matron of Honor will be holding FI’s ring on her thumb, and the Best Man will be wearing mine on his pinky ;). Or at least in his coat pocket!

Yeah, I second (or fourth?) the point about the ring not actually being carried by a child. The bride has enough to worry about as is 🙂

We didn’t have a ring bearer or a best man (or a bridal party for that matter).  We gave our priest the rings at the rehearsal along with the marriage certificate.  At the point in our ceremony when we began the ring exchange, we needed someone to hold the rings while the priest blessed them, and also someone to hold my bouquet.  We just had our moms come up for that part.

we wanted to incorporate one of my Fiance favorite cousins, and she is a girl, so she is going to be our RING GIRL, she wanted to be a flower girl, but I have a little sister and so that was pretty much a given that she was to be our flower girl. So we will have Rachel be our RING GIRL and I am going to find her a little clutch, or purse that matches our theme and colors. And she will be the ring carrier…good luck with everything…

My lil brother, also Bestman carried them in his pocket – and when it came time for the rings he pulled out lip glosss, then a camera, then a compact THEN the rings, apparently my Maid/Matron of Honor asked him to hold them for her so he put them in same pocket

No missed the ring bearer… yes they are cute but not necessary

Our Best Man carried the rings in his pocket.  During the ceremony our priest asked for the rings from the Bridesmaid or Best Man and he blessed them and presented eachothers ring to us in a gold dish. It was very nice.

I made a ring carrrying box out of a empty Altoids tin (FI LOVES Altoids). I put some felt on the bottom of the inside and put ribbon in it to tie them to. Fiance will just carry it in his pocket. I’ll take a picture to post.

We asked my fiance’s uncle, who he is very close with, to present the rings during the ceremony.
