Hello ladies! We are not having any children at our wedding therefore no ring bearer! I have bought a surprise ring box for my fiancé (He is a huge Dr. Who fan and it's a tardis) and I don't want him to see it until it's time to exchange rings. I was thinking of giving it to his best man to hold until it's time. Anyone have suggestions?

I've been to ceremonies where there was no ring bearer. Usually I've seen that the Maid of Honor holds the ring the bride is giving the groom, and the Best Man holds the ring the groom is giving to the bride. When the officiant asks for the rings, both parties turn to get the rings from their Maid of Honor/Best Man. 


I've been in a wedding where this occurred and I just carried the ring for the bride on my thumb under my bouquet.

There are any number of ways that you could have the rings carried, but generally, as Rainmaker said, the bride carries the groom's ring and vice versa. The best man can carry it in his pocket, and the MOH on one of her fingers, or on a piece of ribbon. Tons of ideas that you could do. Another nice thought perhaps is asking the parents if they're attending to carry the rings, and rather than ask the wedding party, you could ask the parents. It depends of course on how close you all are, etc. But just something different.  I'm also not sure how you could work the special box into your ceremony. Maybe if you mention it to your WC she might be able to have a word with the Officiant and figure something out for you to surprise your FI. That's a really nice thought!


Happy planning!

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

We aren't having a ring bearer either but we are doing a "ring warming ceremony" so everyone will hold the dish that contains our rings. Just another idea!
