@kazarmo:  Give them a pillow, or whatever you like, with dummy rings on it, made of yellow pot metal, and let the best man hold onto the real rings.

@kazarmo:  I was just at a wedding and the rings were put in a small box with a latch. They were tied inside the box. Little boy was 3 years old. Really cute!

@Koko1977:  

@kazarmo:  The risk with Koko’s idea is the ring bearer not wanting to give up the rings, moreso than losig them, and running off into a corner playing keep away.  If the best man has the real rings, the wedding can proceed while one of the parents attends to their child.

@kazarmo:  I think it’s super cute having all the kids walking down the aisle! But I wouldn’t give the rings to the boys, at that age they’ve got no idea what they are. (Granted they’re not the real rings, but if they’re carried by someone who has no idea what they are, with no sense of “occasion”, I don’t see the point).

The 5 month old would just shove them in his mouth. The 20 month old would just carry it by his side.

So I’d just have the best man mind the rings; and let the kids be cute kids without giving them any rings.

@kazarmo:  I think it’s better to give them to the older girls. At least they’d treat them properly, e.g. carry the pillow upright. No, there’s nothing wrong with having a girl carry the rings.

At 20 months there’s no guarantee he’ll walk down the aisle at all.
