Hi loves! Today we’re talking about rustic ring pillow ideas and alternatives. First of all, do you have a ring pillow yet? A ring pillow is a traditional vessel in which the rings are carried down the aisle by the ring bearer. Once the ring bearer reaches the altar, chuppah, wedding arch, etc., the rings are given to the Best Man to hold onto until the exchange of vows. (Read: Wedding Ceremony Order of Events for more on this.)
While ring pillows will always be a classic choice, it seems like couples are looking for creative alternatives to hold the rings. For a rustic wedding, even a unique accent to tie into your theme — i.e. a classic ring pillow covered in burlap instead of shiny satin — becomes a twist on the classic tradition. In today’s post, we’re rounding up seven alternative rustic ring pillow ideas to inspire you. Each ring pillow / box / nest is lovingly handmade by an independent Etsy artist. Since each ring pillow is custom-made just for your wedding, no two are exactly the same. Which one is your favorite?
