    I wouldn’t say so much insulting but definitely a bit wierd to me… when I think ring bearer I think cute little boy with pillow, not so much grown man.

    @Meowkers: i remember reading on the bee awhile back where someone was having their brother (an adult) be their ring beared but they were calling him “The Lord of the Rings” which i thought was awesome! Personally, i think that as long as everyone invovled is ok with it, then it shouldn’t be a problem.  These days there are men of honor and best women and groomswomen and bridesman..etc.. anything goes!

    I’d say it is a bit weird. :/ It’s definitely not a HUGE thing but I’d suggest maybe doing something else for them.

    To be honest, it sounds like you are having difficulty drawing the line to limit your wedding party.

    I don’t see the big deal, but at our wedding my husband’s best man just handed him the rings when it was time.

    It doesn’t seem weird to me at all, but in the same time we don’t have ring bearer in France: the best man is in charge of the rings most of the time. I’d say do whatever you want as long as it’s meaningful to you

    We are kind of having the same thing, our ringbearer is a 14 year old boy…too old for the cute little pillow, but I want the rings where we can see them LOL I don’t think it’s wierd if they just hold them but it is a little strange if they walked down the isle by themselves. Maybe have the sitting in the front row, and when they ask for the rings they can bring them up? Just a thought! 🙂

    I think its a great idea if you are not having children in your wedding. My “Flower Maid” will be 17 yrs old at my wedding, since i didnt have any little girls that i wanted in the wedding party.
