    I don’t have a Ring Bearer, but I am under the impression that the parents pay.

    I would think that the parents pay, just as your bridesmaids and groomsmen do.

    I think traditionally his parents are supposed to pay, but in my case, I’m buying the Ring Bearer outfit and the Flower Girl dress.

    Oh man – you mean I can ask my brother’s ex to pay for my nephew’s tux??  She’s the mom!  =)

    Since the Ring Bearer tux was to cost the same as the Groomsmen tuxes, we’re just forgoing the entire thing.  My brother and his gf are both already in the wedding party and paying for their attire, I didn’t want them to have to shell out another $150.  My nephew is just going to wear black pants, and we’re going to buy him little suspenders that coordinate with the GMs.

    Would you consider something like this for your RB?  It isn’t nearly as expensive and it’s so cute (at least IMO!).

    I think it is standard that his mom pays.  Just ask her- tell her you are fine with his Sunday Best, or she can pay for the tux, let her choose.

    I bought our Ring Bearer a cute little tux at walmart for $15, but he is only three.  I can’t see putting that kind of money into a full blown tux when the likelyhood of them ruining it is pretty high, kids are kids.

    I think traditionally the parents of the Ring Bearer and Flower Girl pay…but I decided to pay for my flower girls dress, but that was a personal choice. Are you comfortable asking them to pay? Do you think they would offer to reimburse you if you bought it?

    Good luck!
