The ring bearer has an important responsibility in weddings. They are responsible for carrying the bride and groom's rings on a silk or lacy pillow as they make their way toward the front of the church. Sometimes the ring bearer will walk down the aisle alone and other times, side-by-side with the flower girl.

Sometimes, weddings do not even have ring bearers but they add to the ritual and are adorable. Generally, you want a boy age six to nine. While younger boys can perform this task, they usually get too excited or emotional when they see all the people. For boys that are older than age nine, they can always stand in the wedding party as a junior groomsman.

For formal weddings, the ring bearer can be decked out in his own miniature tuxedo. However, a nice suit or even a short set with knee socks and suspenders is acceptable and provides the child with an outfit that can be worn after the wedding.

The use of ring bearers in weddings dates back to the Queen Victoria era when everything, especially weddings was considered grander if more people were involved. The tradition stuck due to the cute role they play. In actuality, the Best Man and Maid of Honor hold the real rings so the rings the ring bearer carries are only symbolic and usually made from inexpensive metal.

Just like the flower girl, if the boy is old enough to stand with the wedding party during the ceremony, perfect. If not, parents or grandparents should have a seat waiting for him in the front row on the groom's side so after his part, he can simply turn around and sit down.

Prior to the wedding starting, one of the bride's maids should be responsible for keeping watch over both flower girl and ring bearer. While this can be somewhat of a challenge, holding the ring bearer's hand and spending time talking to him, more than likely he will do just fine. If possible, ask the boy's mother or father to wait in the foyer with you until time for the wedding to start.

Since the ring bearer is younger than the other party members are he is not required to stand in the long receiving line. Once he has completed his job of delivering the "rings", he is finished with his responsibility until time for pictures to be taken.
