What kind of ring box should you choose for the ring bearer to carry? These are the questions bride-to-be, Camila, asks us about ring boxes for weddings. She writes,
“Hi Emmaline Bride! I’m looking for a wedding ring box for my ring bearer to carry down the aisle instead of a pillow. We are planning an outdoor wedding and I want something rustic but I am open to suggestions. Do you need a ring box for your wedding? If so, what are some types of wedding ring boxes you would suggest? Thank you.”
Great question, Camila! A ring box is the most popular alternative to a ring pillow for weddings. As a rule of thumb, and in response to your question, you need a vessel of some kind to carry the rings down the aisle or hold them safely until the vows. But the type of ring holder you select is completely up to you.
Personally, a ring box is my favorite option. Why? Unlike a ring pillow, which is seldom used after the wedding, a ring box offers functionality. You can place it on your nightstand or dresser and it will hold your ring in a ring dish or box when you need a minute: washing your hands, working out, painting, traveling, etc. If you don’t want anything to happen to your ring, place it in the ring box.
Next, a ring box offers endless possibilities when it comes to personalization. You can customize a wood ring box with engraving: a favorite quote or biblical verse, your names, a favorite lyric from a song, or your wedding date are just a few suggestions.
If you choose something like a glass ring box, it can serve as a small jewelry box, too, personalized on top with your initial or wedding date as a decal.
A ring box for wedding ceremony use is a great idea and you’ll love the reusable factor after the big day.
Now that you know what makes a ring box so special, let’s talk about what kind of ring box is appropriate for your wedding. You are having a rustic wedding, which to me means likely a wooden box or carved-out tree slice will fit in nicely.
