A little history: The exchanging of rings is a tradition that dates back centuries and can be one of the most important moments in any wedding ceremony. The rings being circular shape symbolizes forever and is a sign of the love & commitment between the husband and wife. A ring bearer is in charge of carrying the rings down the aisle and presenting them to the bride and groom. Consider presenting your wedding bands in a unique and creative way. From ring pillows birds nests, there are many options to choose from!
Ring Bearer – Birds Nest
We love the thought of incorporating earthy elements into your wedding. Placing the rings inside of a bird’s nest is a fabulous idea. However, don’t show off your tree climbing skills to make this happen! Esty is a website where you can purchase handmade “bird nests” that are perfect for presenting your wedding bands.
Ring Bearer – Branded Wood
A slice of a tree stump engraved with the wedding date and couples initials or a miniature bale of hay with the rings attached are great option that compliments mountain or rustic weddings. Try to be super creative & fun!
Ring Bearer - Starfish
There are plenty of unique ring bearer ideas for beach weddings. Place the wedding bands in a seashell or tie to the points on a starfish as shown in the picture above. Wrapping your wedding theme into the little details show that you went the extra mile. We love these ring bearer boxes you see below.
Ring Bearer Box
A small box is a great alternative to the traditional ring pillow. Find a box that compliments your wedding theme. Wooden, glass and crystal boxes are all great options. You can fill the box with a small pillow, handful of moss, loose flower petals or sand to create a soft and decorative space to place the rings.
Ring Bearer Books
Tying wedding bands to a book or cutting out the center pages to create a book box is another creative ring bearer idea. Choose a copy of your favorite book and tie with ribbon and flowers. For religious couples using a copy of the bible is a unique way to incorporate your beliefs into the ceremony.
Ring Bearer – Moss and Floral Pillow
If you’re a bride from nature try using flowers and plants to make a beautiful creation for your ring bearer to carry. The picture above is a great example using moss, succulents, floral accents and twine to create a masterpiece from nature. Collaborating with your wedding planner or florist can also help create a one-of-a-kind piece!
Whether you choose a child, a friend or even a pet as your ring bearer, make sure to keep the rings secure! Some objects, such as boxes, will keep the rings safely enclosed, otherwise you can use colorful ribbon to tie the rings in place. You can do this with almost any option you choose. If there is not a space to tie a ribbon directly onto the object, use a hot glue gun to attach the ribbon. Consider the color scheme, style or the location of your wedding when choosing what your ring bearer will carry. With so many bearer ideas it can be hard to choose just one!
