If your son has been asked to be a ring bearer in a friend of family's wedding, your biggest concern is probably whether or not he'll make it down the aisle gracefully — not what he'll be carrying. (We can't imagine who decided a toddler was the best person to ensure those all-important wedding bands made it to the altar, but we digress . . . ) Once you check out these 10 adorable ring-bearer pillows and bowls — a new wedding trend that makes so much sense as they can be turned into a home decor piece after the big day — you might just change your mind.
The white satin pouf pillow we so often see at the altar has never been my style. So I'm thrilled to see brides taking the tradition in a different direction. From books to seashells to bird's nests, there are plenty of memorable and chic alternatives to the standard ring bearer pillows. Better yet, many can serve as décor in your home for years after the big day. Here are a few of my favorites.
