When our own Kristin Austin said “I Do” to her longtime love, Matt, last September, they opted to make their ceremony as unique as possible. It worked! It was gorgeous and “sooo them” … everyone said so. Even their tiny ring bearers brought their own special touches. One little guy carried a drum down the aisle and the other other carried a “here comes the bride” sign. It was perfect!
This trend is hot! More and more ring bearers are bouncing down aisles with something other than the traditional ring pillow in their hands. Signs are increasingly popular and always adorable. I couldn’t help but melt when I saw the “Uncle Josh, here comes your girl” sign (shown below)! Many ring bearers do still carry the rings. However, their pillows are being replaced by boxes, hollowed out books and bird nests. The quirkier the better!
