I am not having a ring bearer or a flower girl at my wedding because I have no little ones in the family. Does anyone have any alternative ideas to share in replacement of a ring bearer and a flower girl?
My fiancé’s 20 something year old cousins will be our ring bearer and flower girl! He took care of them a lot when they were little kids and it made sense to ask them for it since we’re not asking them to be part of the bridal party.
My side of the family has kids and they were part of the celebration with 2 along of 2 of husbands co workers kids as flower kids and no ring bearer. The Best Men were to hold the rings though it was forgotten to give them as it was sitting on our tray when brought out. You can have the guests hold the petals and have them throw at while you walk down the aisle from the aisle sides.
I had my little cousin that was the ring bearer, but while they sit, the best man took over to collect the box from them to give us the rings.
So like almost everyone is saying, the best man and MOH can be the alternatives. Both of them as they walk down the aisle can do it. Haha! That would be amazing, especially since they are the bride and groom’s right hand peeps. Haha
I have an eight year son and a six year old daughter and we are still not having them as flowergirl/ring bearer. They will go down the aisle after all the guests arrive with my older sons and my niece and nephew. We just wanted to keep the actual wedding party small. Since my (adult) sons aren't part of the wedding party we opted out of the little ones being in the wedding party. Not to say they don't have the sweetest little outfits to wear.

We are choosing to have no children as well that’s why I’m trying to be creative with no flower girl and no ring bearer. Many people are suggesting the best man hold the rings which sounds like the best idea since most bridesmaid dresses don’t have pockets

YES!!! I wanted to do this but have two nieces (although we did no flower tossing). The best man did do a joke first look though! He put on my sister's wedding dress from 2001 🤣 (binder clips and elastic held it together).
We are opting for no children at our wedding in general, so this is a big no for us. Best man will hold rings.
I, like Carmel, LOVE the idea of groomsmen as a "flower girl"! I think the idea is so fun!!! We may opt for this, as we do have odd numbers so may ask our 2 odd groomsmen "walk down the aisles" together tossin flowers haha
We aren't having any wedding party including a ring bearer but even if you are, don't give your ring to a small child anyways lol My nephew was the ring bearer at a wedding (when he was 5 which is young but not as young as some) and they had fake rings on the pillow. Good thing they did because he decided to hold the rings and let the pillow dangle from the ribbon they were tied to, and then it just became too tempting to spin it around...etc you get the idea, don't trust small children with expensive things lol
