Im going to be the first wedding in both of our families that can have a ring bearer. And TBH I have no idea what to do!
He’s going to be 3 at the time of the wedding and kinda worried about getting a 3 year old to hold on to like a $1000 worth of rings…
So would it be strange for him to walk in first carrying this?

At 3, I don’t know that he would actually carry a sign. Our Ring Bearer is just carrying a pillow with fake rings. Our Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man will have the actual rings. It’s not uncommon for the Ring Bearer to not have the actual rings.

My rB will be 4 but I’m having him hold a similar sign 🙂 I think it’s cute!

I have never seen anyone actually give their ring bearer the rings. The best man or groom has them and the children have props.
Don’t over think the participation of a three year old. You probably asked for him to be in the wedding because he’s cute. Send him down the aisle and let him be cute. 🙂

Yeah I’m having to think about it sadly my Future Sister-In-Law is Ning a pain about it. One minutehashes amazed I wanted him to hold something at all and the next has just HAS to GRR
Thanks for you inputs though!!’ I think I’ll just make a sign & see how he goes if he doesn’t hold it he doesn’t hold it. Although I think he will as he’s pretty switched on… He seems to know most things going on aready at 2.
