We are having a Wishes wedding and my soon to be nephews are our ring bearers, they will be almost 6 & 4 years old. We are keeing things pretty casual, they will just be wearing white polos or button down shirts with khaki pants, I did not get them a boutoniere or anything. I have my mom's ring pillow for one of them to carry fake rings on. But I am at a loss as to what to have the other one carry or do while they are walking down the aisle. Any suggestions? I thought about the Mickey bouquet but I don't know if that's quite right for a little boy. Then I thought about just having them both wear flower leis and not worry about it. Help please!

Maybe if you are having a train on your gown he can help carry it down the aisle instead of it dragging on the floor.

Why not have 2 pillows and have them each carry 1 ring?:thumbsup2

That's what I was going to suggest. We had two ringbearers and they each carried a stuffed dog...one was mine that I have had since I was little and the other was my sisters. I had also thought about maybe a bubble gun.

Here's a pic...I kind of think they looked like my own personal secret service!

I like the idea of carrying a little stuffed character...That might be the answer! Thanks very much...

thought i would add....after we realized we forgot to buy a pillow I asked our ringbearer if he would want to carry the build-a-bear I had given him as a gift for being our RB instead. (it was dressed in a matching tux) He said NO! lol...he refused to carry the bear...so he ended up just walking empty handed.
