Agreed! By preparing your ring bearer and flower girl for their roles, you can ensure that the wedding goes smoothly and that they understand what they're supposed to do during the ceremony. voucher | coupons are more important than ever to people trying to save money on their shopping online.

Oh that's a fantastic idea to put fake rings for the ring bearer. I've been agonizing over how to get the rings safely to the front with my 2.5 yr old nephew to be carrying them! We are going to have him walk hand in hand with his sister (the flower girl, she will be 8), but still, you never know...thank you for the suggestion!!

I'm not having ring bearer or flower girl.  What do people do for the rings in that case?  I have 3 bridesmaids to walk down the aisle before me, so not having flower girl is not bad.

bows, with or without a ring bearer, most people have the best man hold the real rings.  He can keep them in his pocket until the right time, and is a lot less likely to drop them or run off with them.

I absolutely love this article!  Very helpful!  Both my ring bearer and flower girl are 5 years old.  I think this is a great age!

I don't understand the tradition of flower girl and ring bearer.  Is there any actual significance to this role or is it just for the "cute" photo ops?  To be frank, I have no interest in having a flower girl or ring bearer simply because it seems like an unnecessary stressor.  Who wants to think about whether a child is going to have a fit or refuse to walk.  I say, stick to adults and avoid needing "training tips."

It definitely important to have the ring bearers have fake rings!

Very good article. Im having my 5 yr old son as my ring barer, he's having a cusion with a ribbon sown into it, to go through the rings so they can be secure, the cusion will also have a small piece of elastic on the bottom for his hand to go through so he cant drop it. My 3 yr old daughter is going to be flower girl, she's having a pommander of white tea roses with a ribbon attached, & they're going to walk down the aisle hand in hand.

We are having a ring bearer (just over a year) escorted by his older (4.5y) brother and my FI nephew (5)- they'll be back up if the ring bearer doesnt want to day of.  Then we have an 8 year old flower-girl and she will be escorted by her twin brother.  But its because we wanted to incorporate all of the important children in our lives into the wedding- especially since all their parents are in the bridal party.  Our ring bearer(s) will not have the real rings- and the elastic on the bottom of the ring cushion is a great idea! Thanks!

I have two ring bearers as well. I have a pillow for each with artificial or small metal rings. They have the same rings and same pillow. Then the maid/matron has his and best man has mine.

We are also having two ring bearers. They are each going to have their own box that is painted fancy and my nephew's will say "hers" and my fiance's nephews will say "his." They will each have the ring of their aunt/uncle in the box!
