Ring bearers have an important job on a wedding day. This cute ring bearer took on some additional responsibilities in helping the bride put on her shoes! But, being a ring bearer can be a nerve-racking event for any little boy. Here are some tips to help ensure that your wedding ceremony goes smoothly and that everyone has a good time.
Try to put a positive spin on the possibly scary parts of the day. If you are worried about the wedding rings on the pillow, hand the pillow to the ring bearer right as he walks down the aisle, or simply have a groomsman carry the real rings. Set a goal for your ring bearer such as walking directly to the best man and giving him a high five. Provide the kids at your wedding with some fun and quiet activities to do at the reception to keep them entertained. Coloring, puzzles, and drawing are all good activities for your reception. Keep an eye on the kids, especially during important moments of the wedding day. We have seen little fingers going into the wedding cake, handstands in the ceremony aisle, kids running around people doing speeches and many other unfortunate distractions. All in all, help your ring bearer feel special and important on your big day while trying to keep them as comfortable and entertained as possible.
