The latest and greatest trend for ring bearers is to carry a “Ring Bear” instead of a pillow. These Ring Bears can be decorated with flowers and ribbon and can still hold the rings and have all of the function of a pillow while being more adorable and comforting to the child carrying it. I LOVE this idea. I also saw a post about a couple who was using a “Felix” cat instead of a teddy bear since Felix looks like their cat. So any cute stuffed animal would do–it just needs to have at least a bow (possibly floral) added to it to make it look more significant. I hope some of my brides do this!!! Spread the word ladies!
