The term “Ring bearer” doesn’t specify a male-why would you need to change it for a girl? I would just keep it.

I’m with cakegal. She’s still a ring bearer. I don’t think it needs to be changed – it doesn’t equate with male-only.

I agree with the others, anyone can “bear” something, therefore a “bearer” can be male or female.  When they see a female name in the program, the guests will understand that it’s a little girl and not a boy…

I kind of disagree.  I know ring bearer does not “mean” boy…but I see why the OP wants to give her a different title. 

In all honesty, I would probably do something overly cheesy like “Ring Princess”  🙂

I think “ring bearer” is perfect.

I called my niece a ring maiden

There is nothing masculine about the title “ring bearer”. If you don’t want that, use ‘keeper of the rings’ as an example.

Ring fairy?  You can put wings on her…

We thought about ring princess too, but the flower girls and the ring girl are all right around 5 years old, and I suspect the flower girls will want to be princesses, too….five year olds do not tend to embrace diversity 🙂  To avoid any princess drama, we may just call them all flowergirls and have one carry the rings. 

If your flower girls are a little older than the ring bearer, this shouldn’t be an issue for you…

Maybe bearer (or bringer) of the rings?

I was going to say “ring bearette”, but the -ette diminishes things. 🙁

I would probably stay away from “ring princess” as well… for more or less the same reason.

Aside from “ring bearer”, I can’t think of anything else I’d label her.

We’re calling our female ring bearer just a ring bearer…she’s going to look cute and girly and have a pretty pillow for the ring, so I don’t see anything wrong with using that gender-neutral title.
