Ring Bearer FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Here are a few questions about the ring bearer that come up often when planning the wedding:
What song does the ring bearer walk down the aisle to?
The song for the ring bearer can be anything you choose! It’s often a soft or sweet song that plays just before the bride’s music starts. Some people pick traditional wedding music, while others go with a favorite song that has a special meaning. Use the songs above as inspiration. Maybe the ring bearer has a favorite movie or tv show that has the perfect song.
What does a ring bearer bring down the aisle?
A ring bearer’s main job at a wedding is to walk down the aisle carrying a pillow with the couple’s wedding rings. They might also carry signs like ‘Here Comes the Bride’ or other cute signs. Whatever they carry, it’s all about making the aisle walk extra special!
Who does the ring bearer walk down the aisle with?
Ring bearers often walk alone, but sometimes they share their aisle moment! They might walk with the flower girl or with another ring bearer. A parent or older sibling can accompany them if they’re very young or shy.
Even if the wedding rehearsal goes smoothly, you should have a backup plan in case the ring bearer gets feet right before the ceremony. A simple way to do this is to have someone in the back who can help him down the aisle if he gets nervous.
We have seen this happen quite a few times at the weddings we have photographed and planned.
At what point does the ring bearer walk down the aisle?
The ring bearer usually walks down the aisle just before the bride makes her grand entrance. He often follows the flower girl, but they might walk down the aisle together (your choice). It’s a sweet moment that sets the stage for the bride’s big entrance.
Does the ring bearer get announced at the reception?
Yes, the ring bearer often gets a special introduction at the reception. This is usually when the whole wedding party is announced. It’s a fun moment that lets everyone cheer for the little one who had such a big job during the ceremony. We often see ring bearers enter the reception to a funny or fun upbeat song.
Does the ring bearer go to the wedding rehearsal?
Yes, the ring bearer usually goes to the wedding rehearsal. This practice run helps them feel more comfortable with their big role. They learn where to walk, what to carry, and when to move.
