Hi bees! Okay, Fiance and I are six months away and now getting down to the smaller details of our wedding. We chose to ask our (my soon-to-be) 16 year old niece to be our ring bearer. We didn’t call her that but asked her to carry our rings down the aisle for us. We found this super cute jumbo eraser in the shape of a diamond ring. She gladly accepted.
Now is the question, what can we call her? When I think of a ring bearer i think of either a little boy or a male. I want it to be something creative, fun, and a tad more feminine. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

omglauren: She is still the ring bearer, either way. We may have a girl ring bearer too, a 2 year old, and I was thinking of calling her the ring girl.

Just call her “ring bearer.” The phrase “ring girl” makes me think of the ladies who hold up the signs in boxing matches.

I would call her a bridesmaid or junior bridesmaid. If there is no ring bearer in th wedding, the Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man usually carry the rings, but we don’t give them a different title. It’s just one of their duties.

omglauren: Probably a dumb question… why do you need to call her anything? Is it for writing on an order of service/thanking her for carrying the ring or just when you talk about her generally? 🙂

No to ring girl. Yes to her either being a junior bridesmaid or not calling her anything. Just thanking her.

cpick: we want to give her some kind of title for the programs and then a thank you at the reception.
okay so definitely no to ring girl because that makes me think of a little girl and my niece is 16. we did think of ring carrier or carrier of the rings. but thank you all for all the help!

If you were looking for something cutesy/funny, maybe the “Ring Wrangler” or the “Band Aide”? Haha, ok that might be too much…
Is “Ring Attendant” too stuffy? “Ring Keeper” makes me think of a goalie or Harry Potter, but could work. The “Band Bearer” might differentiate it enough that she doesn’t feel like it’s a title for a little boy. “Ring Maid” versus Bridesmaid?
