Just wondering what other creative brides think…
My 4 year old nephew is going to be our ring bearer for the ceremony. Now this kid LOVES dinosaurs and is incredibly intelligent (off the charts smart) to boot. He’s not a shy kid, but when he gets around THAT MANY people, he tends to clam up. My fiance’ (whom nephew adores) and I think it would be a really cute idea to incorporate his love of dinosaurs into his tuxedo to help him feel more comfortable at the church in front of a lot of people. I was thinking about having little triangle spikes sewn down the back seam of his jacket and them trail into a little spiky dinosaur tail off his jacket. I’m not talking large and costumy…just a little flare on the jacket to make my nephew feel super special. It would totally blend in, same fabric as jacket, possibly a matte satin. My mom, however, does not find this idea cute or hilarious. She would rather embroider cartoon dinosaurs on his pillow…which I don’t like. What do you bees think? If you saw a ring bearer dinosaur at a wedding, wouldn’t you think it was cute?? This is a completely silly post I know, just a bit frustrated. 🙂

I think that would be adorable! If you, the bride and groom, don’t mind then do it! If I saw him walking down the aisle my heart would melt!

I think it’s adorable! It will make him feel more comfortable and who doesn’t like to see little kids looking all cute!

I think its a super cute idea but I would make the spikes green. I mean if you’re going to do something quirky just go for it.

That is absolutly adorable!! I am baiting my ring bearer as well 🙂 Appearantly he likes Halo legos. I was thinking of tying one to the pillow that he can remove after he gets down the aisle, so that he has something to play with during the wedding.

Hmm … I think this would be fine, and cute, for an outdoor ceremony or one that you held in a different venue (a museum, etc.), but I do kind of think it’s a little inappropriate for a church wedding. I totally understand, and am totally in favor of, including kids and going out of your way to make them feel comfortable, but it just seems a little irreverent. Is there a way you could promise him something “dinosaur” as something to look forward to at the reception, as a reward for executing his ringbearer duties with aplomb?
