13 Ring Bearer Pillow Alternatives

 ring bearer pillow alternatives

The ring bearer tradition is hilarious when you really think about it. I mean, have you ever seen 6 year old boys? They run. And dig. And kick. Then on one of the biggest days of our lives, we strap 'em into a black tux and ask him to slowly walk down the aisle carefully holding a small pillow with thousands of dollars worth of gold and diamonds resting on top. It's insane. 

But then that cute little angel strolls down the aisle with his hair gelled back and his adorable bow tie and you hear the whole audience oohing and giggling. And the photos that you'll keep forever are priceless of him bouncing down the aisle. And you realize how totally worth it the tradition actually is. 

So, in support of all things adorable, I put together a list of ring bearer pillow alternatives. If you want to switch up tradition just a little and would rather a unique take on the pillow, I have found some gorgeous alternatives I think you'll love and want to use!
