Though a timeless tradition, there are many modern brides who aren't too fond of the classic ring bearer pillow. Brides who yearn for fresh, stylish wedding accessories are always searching for the hottest trends on the wedding market; and ring bearer pillow alternatives
are one of them! If you have a little lad who is going to carry the rings during the wedding ceremony, but the ring pillow just isn't your style, no worries. We have tons of great ring pillow alternative
If you're having a simple, classic wedding, consider something such as a treasure chest or a silver plated rose that is actually a ring box. This rose is a great option if you're not having a ring bearer: the maid of honor can conceal the rose in her bouquet. Birds nests, which can be found at your local craft store are also a popular alternative and match great with a love bird or eco-friendly wedding. They're also great for the do-it-yourself bride. Perhaps you're hosting a Southern Ball, featuring yummy mint juleps and square dancing. Have you considered attaching your wedding bands to a lucky horseshoe? Not only will you have a trendy wedding ring pillow alternative
, but a lovely keepsake afterward.
If you're having a beach themed wedding or if your ceremony is down by the sandy seashore, try using a large scallop seashell to hold the rings. We even offer an adorable Personalized Tiger Clam Trinket Box which is great for carrying the rings and even better for cute proposal ideas! Any other trinket or gift box is a sweet alernative to the ring pillow. Ring pillow plates or bowls are another growing trend, which can be purchased and personalized or even made yourself. This is a great idea if the bride is crafty; plus the piece makes a nice keepsake later on.
