    We will be having 1 flower girl and 1 ring bearer (both just turned 4 years old) in our wedding and I'm just wondering what others have done/will have them do.  Not sure if I want the traditional ring pillow and basket with flowers? Ideas?

     

    Thanks everyone!

      We only have 3 nieces (3 yr, 2 yr, 12 mo - and all have the some mother/father!!!), so we will have 2 flower girls and 1 ring bearer.  The two older girls will be the flower girls and they will hopefully walk down the aisle on their own - I am hoping the fact that their father will be standing at the end of the aisle as a GM will help.  For the flower girls I bought metal pails at Michaels and will tie starfish to where the handle meets the pail with thin ribbon in one of our wedding colors.  One of the reasons I chose this path is because the metal pails should survive the flight quite well and the starfish can be packed away and tied on once we get to Mexico.

       

      The youngest girl will be the ring bearer and her mother will carry her down the aisle.  Instead of a pillow, she will be holding onto a stuffed animal that looks a bit like our dog (who is beyond loved/spoiled) - the rings will be attached to a collar around the stuffed dogs neck.

       

      I have seen quite a few weddings where the ring bearer pillow has become an object of importance to either the couple or the ring bearer.  Some friends recently had the rings attached to a football for the boy to carry.

          My husband and I only have newphews. (Actually, I have a niece who was 7 months old at the time of the wedding. But given her age, her family couldn't come). So we had 2 ring bearers, 4 and 6 years old. Each boy walked down the aisle with adult escorts: the 6 year old with his grandparents and the 4 year old with his mother.

           

          I just had them carry a pillow as they were escorted down the aisle and then sit in the front row with adults that they know very well. (Best man held the rings). The 6 year old is ADHD. And the 4 year old gets easily gets moody, and, consequently, unmanageable. I just didn't want to push either of them.

           

          So I went the boring route =P. I like the idea of the ring bearer/s carring a personal object!

            My flowergirl will be carrying a parasol just like my BM's and I think my ringbearer will carry a truck with a ribbon tying the rings on. I've seen it before and its really cute. Personally, I don't like the pillow because they are usually really girly and don't suit a little boy.

              Oh I like the idea of the truck. Very cute! I'm still not sure if we're going to have a flower girl or ring bearer. Noone wants to bring there kids lol

                other alternatives include:

                for the ring bearer:

                a treasure chest

                a nautilus shell

                a teddy bear

                for the flower girl:

                colorful pinwheels

                banners
