At my wedding, the best man had my ring and my Maid/Matron of Honor had DH’s ring (her dress had pockets so it worked out well). At my brother in law’s wedding, Darling Husband, who was the best man, carried both rings. It’s simple and traditional, I wasn’t worried about anything and I wouldn’t change it!

My 12 year old nephew carried out rings down the aisle in a beautiful antique silver trinket box. He was so proud to have the responsibility and did an awesome job. 🙂

We had a 5-year-old ring bearer, but he had dummy rings and the officiant had the rings in his pocket the whole time.  (We didn’t have a wedding party.)  So he just pulled the rings out at the appropriate time.  Easy peasy.

My 11 year old brother carried them and held them until we needed them!

@allsevenofus:  At my wedding our Best Man held both rings just to be safe since the boys all have pockets anyway – our dresses didn’t have pockets or else that might have been nice for my Maid/Matron of Honor to hold but I think its traditional for the Bridesmaid or Best Man to take that responsibility anyway – girls have enough to worry about!

In our wedding, my Maid/Matron of Honor carried DH’s ring, and the best man carried mine.  We didn’t have any kids involved in our wedding, so no ring bearer or anything like that.  It worked very smoothly 🙂  I think my Maid/Matron of Honor actually just wore DH’s ring on her thumb or something, because she was worried about dropping it!

@allsevenofus:  The current plan is for Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man to carry them in their pockets, but we have toyed with the idea of FI’s older brother being our ring bearer. FI’s mother really wants him involved in the wedding and he wouldn’t want to do a reading so we’ve kicked that idea around.

My SIL wore them on her pinky, and she also wore my engagement ring during the ceremony.

Ive considered tying them to our flower girl basket with a piece of ribbon, but I’m not so sure about that.

I’ll probably just have our best man & Maid/Matron of Honor carry it down.

We have a ring bearer walking down the aisle with the rings in a box, but then he is going to give them to my Grandfather (who is the only surviving grandfather on both sides) who will then present them to the officiant when it’s time. I thought it was a nice way to include our nephew and my grandpa at the same time. My grandfather was surprisingly super emotional when we asked him…it was so cute 🙂

We are both close to our mom’s so we tied our rings to their corsages. When it was time for the ring exchange they both came up and we untied the rings. It was our way of including them, and we liked the symbolism of it and having our mom’s hand us the rings we would give to each other.

I don’t know how I feel giving them to our ring bearer. Yah that’s his title, but he’s 8. Who knows? Maybe I’ll just the Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man to hold them.

My husband’s best lady held them in a pretty ring box that I purchased on Etsy:
