Have you given any thoughts to how the rings will be presented before the altar? This will have a big influence on the logistics of the ceremony and who will be best suited for the title.
When we take a look at Pinterest and other social media, we can see that presenting the rings have become more and more important at weddings. This is an aspect of the ceremony that can be done so wildly different, depending on your personal style and how traditional your wedding is going to be.
Some of the most popular suggestions on social media include; Rough wood disks, with the bark still attached, which has your names and the date engraved. The wood disks can also be sanded and varnished for a more finished look.
Wood boxes with the inside lined out with material or some greenery from your flowers are also seen a lot. Another idea is a glass or Perspex box, filled with flowers in a resin mold with slots, cut in it for the rings to be placed in. These boxes can be kept plain or can have writing of some kind on it.
Other ideas include origami swans with the rings placed on the neck of the swan. Pyramid ring boxes made of glass in a rose gold framework and the rings dangling from a rose gold chain. A simple ceramic ring holder in plain white is also a beautiful option and can be used later on your dresser for your jewellery.
There are loads of options that can be personalized to match any wedding theme and setting.
Next thing to keep in mind is who will be the ring bearer and how will they bring the rings to you? If you choose an adult, it will be less complicating; but having a child all dressed up in their Sunday best is just so sweet and will take care of some beautiful and classic photo’s.
Just remember to take time, do a little bit of inspiration research and plan this carefully, because you don’t want to run down the isle, chasing a toddler who decides to keep your rings because their pretty or drops a glass box that shatters into a million pieces.
You can even have your beautiful box or ring holder set on a table near you t cancel out any complications.
What ever you end up choosing, make sure to take enough pictures.
