They Totally Steal The show
Too Cute for Words!
Ring Bearers, the cutest most adorable little dudes walking down the aisle. The aww moment of every wedding beside the gorgeous bride & beautiful flower girls. Traditionally the little guys are a close relative of bride or groom and anywhere between two to ten years old. They normally walk down the aisle before the flower girl carrying a pillow or special box with the rings.
Ring Bearers are sure to grab smiles from your guests and help you and your new husband create special memories on the big day.
Wedding parties are not always the same. Even though flower girls and ring bearers are part of traditional wedding parties some will opt out of having them at their event. It's widely accepted that having children play a part in your wedding only adds to the experience and excitement. Let's keep the little ones as part of your bridal party and give them some room to grab your guest's attention and make them smile.
We can barely handle how cute these tykes are!
Sure they may be nervous but no matter what they do they will steal the show with there cuteness. Be sure to let them know of their duties and include them in your rehearsals. It is natural for the little ones to be nervous walking down the aisle alone while hundreds are watching. Most importantly, remember that the ring bearer is still just a child and mistakes or mishaps may happen. If you're the perfectionist type, choose an older ring bearer, or go without.
More than one boy? No problem you can always have different roles for them. You can have them parade down the aisle holding small flags with your wedding colors, one or more can walk down the aisle carrying the rings, another can accompany your flower girl. You can also have little guys hold your train while you walk down the aisle. It is always fun to have them walk with cute signs “Here comes your Bride”, “this is your last chance to run”. Don’t leave anyone out just get creative and include all your special boys and girls.
How to dress your little ring bearers?
Most often they will wear the same outfit as the groomsmen, sometimes even the same as the groom. You can pick from mini tux, sports jacket, vest & shorts even sailor suite depending on the season and your wedding team. Whatever you choose, make sure the boys are comfortable, while still remaining true to the overall tone of your wedding.
Where to Find a Ring Bearers Suits or Outfits?

Kids will be kids, even when they're at a wedding.
Are They Invited to the Reception?
This is definitely up to you, however, it should be decided before you ask a little one to be in your wedding. You may invite other kids to the reception, in that case, your ring bearer should also be invited. If not it is still up to you and the little cuties parents to keep him at the reception or not. If you don’t want any children there then it is fair that you cover the pay for a sitter. Sometimes if the immediate family or wedding party has few little ones then they normally pay for a sitter and a room at the place for the little ones to stay at. This normally happens if the family is staying the night at the hotel or resort where the wedding is taking place.
