Also known as a wedding ring cushion, the ring bearer pillow has long been a symbolic wedding custom. The wedding ring is of vital importance, historically made of costly precious metals and gems, and also symbolizing the love and commitment of the impending marriage. Thus the rings are usually entrusted to the best man until the appropriate time during the ceremony. Since the rings do symbolize the commitment of marriage, it seems only natural that they are highlighted during the ceremony. The ring bearer or page boy is usually a young child who walks down the aisle carrying a white satin pillow onto which two false rings are displayed. In some cases, couples choose to use the actual rings, in which case they may be secured onto the pillow using thread.
If a bride or a groom has a pet who feels like part of the family, he/she may choose to have the dog or cat act as the ring-bearer. This is especially true for informal or outdoor weddings. If you'd like to honor
your dog with walking down the aisle, rest assured you'll be able to find a ring bearer pillow for Kitty or Spot at a variety of companies. You can go with the standard pillow (which can be found at most bridal shops) or you can go with the adorable little angel wings below. So cute : )
