    Hi ladies - I did a search, but didn't really find what I'm looking for.

    I really want a ring bearer for our wedding - my sister had a baby in April, so when we get married this coming April, my only nephew will be 1 year old.

    I don't think he'll be walking on his own yet, let alone old enough to understand what he is supposed to do. But I still want him to have that role.

    My question is - how do I have such a young child pull off this role? I don't really want my BIL to carry/walk him down the aisle - but my sister is my MOH - would it look weird to have her walk him down the aisle?

    I was at a wedding this summer where the bride had her infant (6 months) as the ring bearer, and one of the junior bridesmaids pulled him down the aisle in a wagon (in his car seat) with the rings on a pillow in front of him. It was super cute, but I don't think Lincoln would sit so nicely in a wagon - he's a bit old for that. I also don't want to cart a wagon down to Cuba.

    Any suggestions?
    Thank you.
    21 people + Bride & Groom booked!!

      My son will be a year and a half. I plan to have him walk down the aisle with the Best Man (my FIL) and the maid of Honor (my friend from grade school) holding his hands. My FIL will just hold the rings.

        What about if he "walked" your mom down the aisle?

          My flower girl was 9 months at our wedding. Her mom was my MOH and what we did was have her dad "walk" with her down the aisle with her basket of petals. In the end, she wanted to walk by herself and so he held the basket in front of her while helping her walk...it was adorable, seeing as how she wasn't quite able to walk without assistance, but really marched along. He ended up throwing the petals himself and it was really cute.
          I think whatever you decide will be fine. Little kids make weddings so cute.

            I think it'll look really cute if you MOH walks with him down the aisle. I've seen it done before and the pics look really good b/c of the interaction b/t them as they walk.
