Wedding Ringbearer outfits, his duties, and posing for photos.

The Ringbearer.

In traditional weddings the Ringbearer walks down the aisle beside the Flower Girl. And he holds a fancy pillow with the wedding rings on it.

In modern weddings the Best Man holds the real wedding bands. And to simulate the custom, attach fake rings to the pillow for the Ringbearer to carry.

When the Bride and Groom have chosen their outfits they will shop for the Ringbearer’s outfit.

The Ringbearers’ outfit is paid for by his family. This can range from his best outfit, a theme costume or a tuxedo. And he usually wears a boutonniere like the groomsmen.

The wedding ringbearer’s parents should explain the responsibilities and duties to him the best that they can.

If an attendant is the parent of the Ringbearer, then they should appoint someone to watch the child.

Whoever is looking after the children should carry a comb and tissues. And whatever else they might need.

Bachelor Parties. Ring Bearers do not receive invitations to bachelor parties.
