Ring Bearer Pillows - Ideas and Photos
Brief History of a Ring Bearer
Dating back to Egyptian times when fancy jewels were displayed on even fancier pillows and brought down an aisle to the bride and groom during their wedding ceremony, the ring bearer still exists in full-force at weddings today.
Today's ring bearer's usually symbolize the vessel carrying the rings to the wedding couple. More cautious brides and grooms have begun sewing symbols of their rings onto the ring bearer's pillows, and leaving the fancy rings up to the Man of Honor to hang on to.

Ring Bearer Pillows
There may actually be more styles of Ring Bearer pillows than there are little boys at this point in time.
I have a large selection of my favorite pillows ranging from classy to funky. Each style has it's own merit and will undoubtedly look adorable with a little boy carrying it down the aisle of your wedding. Keep in mind, it is a great idea to sew plastic rings to the pillow instead of entrusting a 6-10 year old very expensive pieces of jewelry.
Sunflower pillow - By Brasspaperclips at Etsy, will illuminate any wedding ceremony! Giant and fluffy, you can easily sew it on to a larger pillow as a keepsake for years to come.
Swan Pillow - by TianaChe is just the most hilarious pillow I've ever seen. I love it! And, can just imagine wedding photos of a little boy carrying this giant swan down the aisle. I hope I get to see that at some point in my life!
CherubinoCrafts created a beautiful blend of rustic, vintage and classic rolled into one with their moss covered ring bearers pillow.
The lovebirds created by HankAndTillie on Etsy, are adorable. If you happen to have two ring bearers, this would be the perfect choice. They come in a variety of colors to match your wedding theme.
Idotakeu on Etsy, created a cute pillow perfect for the trend of Rustic Weddings. A backyard, cottage or barnyard wedding would be simply perfect with a little fresh, handmade pillow like this. The bird and branch are sewn flat and the rings are tied to a piece of string/twine coming from the bird's mouth.
Grandifloral created fresh floral designs that would set any little boy's imagination going wild. These exotic creations can work for a very modern or minimal wedding. They're unique and classy. Ask your florist about making a fresh pillow for your ring bearer. Some of their creations have plants that you can actually keep growing long after the wedding.
The Classic Ring Bearer's Pillow by studiowedbymirela, is an ivory pillow embedded with rhinestones and seed pearls. A classic pillow for an elegant event. No frills, no fuss, just beauty!
If you're looking for something simple and easy, Petal and Thorn has a rustic box filled with moss to hold your rings. The satin ribbon can probably be altered to the color of your wedding. Just ask the designers. They also have a tiny moss pillow with a little birds nest filled with tiny eggs for holding your rings. Cute!
PinkandPinkVintage offers oragami paper flower pillows for something a bit more funky!
Vintage pillow fabric is used on the ring bearer pillows by pompandplumage. Sophisticated and retro.
One of my favorites (aside from the swan), is created by Robinbirdnest and is an edgy and modern creation of moss and plant-life. It looks a bit sci-fi and very modern. This one would look fantastic for a bride that is doing things in a simplified, stylish way...with a sleek, slim white wedding gown and croquembouche wedding cake. Modern style at it's sleekest! Your ring bearer will love playing with this after the wedding!
