If you're including a ring bearer in your wedding, you're probably looking for a beautiful, classic pillow for him to transport the rings upon. While you can always find a satin-and-lace pillow at a bridal shop, why not make your pillow a little more unique? I've rounded up some hand-crafted pillows and one even more unique choice for your ring bearer in this Good, Better, Best.
Good: This Handmade Silk Pillow ($36) can be customized with the couple's initials. It's a perfect, understated pillow for a classic couple. You can also specify the ribbon color and embroidery stitch, or even send in your favorite ribbon or flowers to use on the pillow.
For two more choices,
Better: I love the look of this Purple and White Dupioni Silk Hydrangea Bow Ring Bearer Pillow ($39). The pillow is topped with a silk sash and bow, and finished with a high-quality silk hydrangea. This pillow measures in at eight inches square and features thin satin ribbons to attach the rings and a ribbon on the back to help the ring bearer carry the pillow safely. It has also been hand tufted with a mother-of-pearl button. It would be perfect for a bride who'd like to put a little punch of drama into her ceremony.
Best Even though this Tiny Text Ring Bowl ($21) is the least expensive choice, I believe it is the most elegant, unique, and charming of the bunch. You can keep the quote that's on the bowl, or customize it with a quote from your ceremony, or with your names and wedding date. After the ceremony, you can use the bowl to hold jewelry, or you can hang it by a cord on your wall, or place it in a shadow box or in a display with your wedding photos. Each bowl is handcrafted of fine pure white clay, and fired in a kiln, and each has a protective matte finish applied to the surface and are designed for decorative use.
