Tiny black tuxedos, satin pillows, imitation rings: these are what generally come to mind when thinking of the traditional ring bearer. And while following tradition is a lovely choice for a classic wedding, more and more brides are choosing to incorporate some personality as they send their little guys down the aisle. Young boys often have short attention spans, so making their part in the wedding more fun can be helpful in keeping them focused on the task at hand – to look adorable and make it down the aisle without wreaking any havoc, of course.  

Whether the couple wants to come up with an idea for the ring bearer or discuss it with the child himself, these cute ideas from real weddings should help serve as inspiration. Click on your favorite photos to see more details from each of the celebrations!

ring bearers dressed as security guards with safeMake sure the rings are secure by hiring some "security guards" as your ring bearers. Or rather, dress up the little ones in security-guard costumes and give them miniature safes to carry as they walk down the aisle. Kids love to use their imagination and will enjoy being such an important part of your day, while guests will delight in seeing the ring bearer(s) take their job so seriously! Photo by KLK Photography
