Aw that is so sweet to include your son! I’m wondering the same thing about needing a ring bearer, because Fiance and I seriously have no one that fits in the age range to be either ring bearer or flower girl! I’d hate to just pick random kids and ask them to be in the wedding. I’d like to hear what other bees say too!

I would just have your son hand you the rings when its time to exchange them. We didn’t have a ring bearer.

I personally don’t think you *need* to have ring bearers/flower girls. They’re just there to give the important kids in your life a role to play in your wedding. If you don’t have an important kid (or in your case, they are already performing another role), I wouldn’t worry.

We are having 1 flower girl and 3 page boys. Some people have commented to us that it’s too many page boys and not enough flower girls, but they are our nephews and she is our niece and we want them there. It doesn’t matter to us that the numbers don’t match up evenly.

@janaeesiss: I think a 9 yr old is a little old for a pillow but thats just my personal preference.

I don’t think you need to have a ring bearer if you don’t want to. It’s your wedding and you can do what you want =)

Btw, I love that the 3 of you are getting married!!

I don’t think you need a ring bearer but I agree with others that he could hand you the rings.  Rather than a pillow, because I think he’s too old to carry one, maybe he could carry the rings in a nice wooden box.
