ring shells vs. ring pillows

Recommended Posts

I bought 2 of these when we were at the beach 2 weeks ago. My 2 nephews are going to be our ring barrers. I was thinking of tying 2 fake rings together with some cute ribbon and hot glueing them to the insides and have them use them instead of pillows.

 

Do you think they would look o.k.? We're not going to give them our real rings, but I think I still want them walking down the isle and pretending they have them.

 

Dumb idea??

Since I'm not having a ring bear, I'm having Cain's Ma present us with our wedding bands. And I've actually made up something similar to what you are talking about. Except I'm using our real rings. I think if you (maybe) attach fabric to the shells and somehow pin them on the fabric you'll be fine with your real rings.

I need to work on my spelling today - haha!

 

It just scares me to think about trusting a 7 and 9 year old with our rings in the sand...eeek!! The fabric/pin is a good idea though!!

I bet if you use fabric and attach the rings to a ribbon that is pinned to the fabric you wouldn't have to worry about the rings. Maybe have someone give the shells/rings to them right before they walk down the aisle that way you know they will be on their best behavior.

I talk to James about it. He said, "My GM will be carring our rings....so I know he'll still have them when it's time." Pinning them and giving them to the boys at the last minute is a good idea.

BUT what if they get a little bored during the ceremony and start kicking sand at each other and decide to launch the shells at each other....OMG!! I can totaly see them doing that!!!
