Does the ring bearer have to be a boy? We don’t have any little boys in our family so I asked my sister if my neice could be the ringbearer instead of a flowergirl, she is six. My FH has two nieces who are 4 and 2 and I think it might best best for them to be the flowergirls. I tend to hope that the six year old won’t lose the the rings on the pillow. My sister was a little upset telling me that being a ringbearer was for a boy. Was I in the wrong? I thought it would be cute my niece could wear a junior braidsmaid dress and stand up with us beside my sister.

You can definitely have a girl ring bearer! Also, typically the ring bearer just carries the pillow for looks, the best man usually holds the rings. That way, you don’t have to worry about her/him losing it.

I think that’s a cute idea. I don’t know why your sister got upset about it.
My opinion is that nothing HAS to be a anything. It’s your wedding, do what you want!

My 2 year old niece was a bellringer but I’ve also heard where children walk down the aisle and blow bubbles. If you want them included, anything would be cute.

The ringebearer can be a girl, dog, cat, grown man. It’s whatever you want it to be

We have TONS of little girls in our family and NO little boys, so we’re having the two oldest girls (7&8 by our wedding) be ringbearers. I think it’ll be super-cute!

Thanks everyone I am sure it will be ok, I love the bubbles idea! Instead of tossing money OOPS1 😉 I mean peddles they could blow bubbles, I am sure I could teach them by October.
Thanks again everyone

I think you should have anyone that is special to you be the ringbearer!! I don’t know or have any younger boys to ask so I was thinking on asking my “little brother”, he just happens to be 36 years old. I’ve been contemplating on whether to ask him or not because I don’t want him to be offended at what should be the “job” for a kid. I’m definitely not one to follow etiquette or have to do what others believe to be the correct way of doing things. Maybe call him ring holder or holder of the rings instead?

I like holder of the rings sounds very lord of the ringish LOL
