I think that the best man keeps the rings and hands them to the officiant.

Yep – I just figured our Best Man would look after them!

Our Best Man looked after them and gave them to myself and Darling Husband in turn when it was time to put them on each other.

We’re not having a ring bearer OR a best man, so we were just discussing this issue.  We do have a paloma’s nest leaf ring bowl, which I want to use.  So we opted to put a small (12″x12″) table at the head of the aisle and have the ring and bowl waiting up there.  We’ll get someone to put it there after pictures have been taken of the rings but before guests start to arrive.

The ringbearer is just for show, since they rarely if ever carry the real rings. If you don’t have a ringbearer, there is no need for a pillow as the best man will carry them in his pocket.

Why don’t you have your FH hang on to them since there’s no best man……then part of his entrance can be putting the rings in your ring bowl?  That way he can have his own little symbolic ritual before you make your grand entrance?

We don’t have a ring bearer or a best man. So we’re just going to give them to the officiant before the ceremony starts and she will have them when the time comes.
