I am having two ring bearers for sure (FI’s 2 nephews) and potentially one more ( my nephew). This is fine with me since they are all very close to us. But, what should each of them hold?
If we just have 2, is it appropriate to have 2 pillows with one (fake) ring on each pillow? or symbolically, should both the rings be on one pillow?
or, i was thinking if there is just one pillow, the other little boy(s) can hold a pomander? what do you think? the boys are only 2-3 years in age each.

Do you have a flower girl? Maybe one of them can escort the flower girl down the aisle?

No, we are actually not having a flower girl…

I think you could have one hold the pillow and maybe the other one could just walk with him? I’m not sure, but don’t a lot of people put fake rings on the pillow anyway so that they don’t get lost (and then the best man holds them?).
They sound like they’re pretty little anyway- is one older than the other and could hold the other one’s hand while they walk? Or pull the other one in a wagon? I saw that once at a wedding and it was SO adorable!

Oh bummer! Oh, so funny! I was just going to suggest the wagon, my florist suggested it to us (she doesn’t know that our Ring Bearer will not be sit for any length of time). Or else, like Miss Root says, they don’t all need to be carrying something. The point it to include them because they all mean a lot to you… and cuz they’re so cute!

We’re having two female ringbearers and each is carrying a pillow with a ring on it (the girl from FI’s side will carry mine; the girl from my side will carry his).

We had the older one carry the rings and hold the hand of the younger one. We would have given the younger one the material that we wrapped around our hands, but he was too busy and distracted to hold anything!

these are all great ideas. also, i might be missing some an etiquette rule or something, but while it’s nice to have the two rings snuggled on one pillow, i think each ring bearer with a separate pillow and ring is kinda cute. that way they both get to hold something special.

I was going to suggest putting fake rings on the pillow. And another idea is to have one carry the rings and the the other two carry a long stem rose and hand it to the MOB and MOG when they get to the asile.

I had 2 ring bearers that were 3 years old and they each had a ring pillow. No rings on it though, the best man had them!

I’m doing exactly what Naanangel did!

We’re having 1 ring bearer (4 1/2 years old, my future stepson), and my 2 nephews (3 1/2 and 6) will walk the two mom’s down the aisle. I’d also like to give each of them a big white balloon to carry since they each have asked if there will be balloons and cake at the party. Who could say no to that?!

We’re having two ring bearers. One will carry the pillow with the rings on it, and the other will carry my grandmother’s Bible. Throwing another something old in there 🙂

We have this situation too, and I saw a GREAT idea the other day in a random ceremony picture….one carries the rings, and the other a big Here Comes the Bride Sign – it was adorable and we’re going to do taht for ours!!

I have two baby brothers who will be my ring bears (3 and 4). We are going to have them hold hands while the older one holds the pillow. I would like to find something little for the younger to hold, but haven’t picked yet.
I like the here comes the bride poster idea, it is cute and funny!
