My FI’s little sisters (age 8 and 12) are going to be jr. bridesmaids in the wedding. We also have my 2 1/2 year old god-daughter as our flower girl. However… with no young boys in our circles of family and friends. We’re thinking of having his sisters carry up our rings. I’ve already ordered them each a simple bouquet of flowers. Any idea for how to get the ring up the aisle?? I think it might look a little silly to have them carry their bouquets AND something like a ring pillow or bowl. Should we just hand the ring duties over to the best man? Tie it to the flower girls basket?? I’m open to ideas!

What about tying the rings to the bouquets. There’s an easy knot you can use that’s secure enough, but comes undone easily when you pull on one part of the bow (have no idea what it’s called). They are old enough to know not to drop them or wave them around frantically. They could each carry one and stop at the end of the ailse to let the Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man untie the rings.

i would just give the rings to the best man. this is a common practice.
and would work better for me and my paronoia. but thats just me…i would have a bit of paranoia knowing that the best man had the rings too, lol.

We had two flower girls and two "ringer bearers", and they were so cute walking down the aisle in their little outfits. But we gave our rings to the best man as we did not want to entrust our rings to little kids, and have them hang on to them for most of the ceremony until it was time to exchange rings.
Having small children involved is precious, but also very unpredictable. They have a tendency to get stage fright, which you can’t prepare them for at the rehearsal. It’s different once 150 people are sitting there all staring at you!
Since your flower girl is 2 1/2, her walking alone will be tricky. Either have the jr. BMs walk with the Flower Girl between them, or a really cutet thing I’ve seen is having the small one pulled down the aisle by bigger kids in a decorated wagon.
