Ring pillow shmring pillow….

Posted on April 21, 2009. Filed under: crafty-crafty |

We won’t have a ringbearer, lacking boys of the appopriate age in our circle of friends and family.  We will, however, have the world’s best Junior Bridesmaid in my 12 year old niece, L.  She’s too grown up to be a flower girl, and too young to be a bridesmaid, so we decided that Junior Bridesmaid was the perfect role.

But what responsibilities to give her?  My stepsister, as flowergirl, will be charged with scattering rose petals along the path, but since L isn’t a flowergirl (an important distinction when you’re 12), what will she be doing?  Why, carrying the rings!  Yes, the real rings… but not on a pillow, no sirree.  She’ll be sporting a finger posy.  Behold.

(Again, excuse the quality of the cell phone picture… we’re working on a deadline here.}

That little bit of happiness is the latest creation of my fabulous Mama and is both pretty and pretty darned functional.  The rings, as you can see, are tied on with ribbons to avoid any last minute fumbles.  The fluffy posy hides an elastic band that will fit over her finger, again avoiding any accidental fumbles while leaving her hands free for any of those necessities that you can’t think of until you’re stuck holding something that you can’t put down.  Or to help keep a flowergirl upright while navigating a trail down a hill.

Is anyone else foregoing a traditional ring pillow for something more unique?

I love, love it! This is fantastic — practical and lovely!

We had a little white coin-pouch we were going to use for the rings & the Best Man was just going to had them over at the right time. But a half-hour or so before the ceremony our priest started asking around to find out where the rings were (apparently, he wanted to pray over them… who knew?!) A friend — who had offered to run the rings to the Best Man before it all began — apparently took this opportunity to just hand them over to the priest… and so for awhile no one seemed to know where they were!
(The priest, it turns out, just held on to them and brought them to us just at the right moment in the ceremony! Whew!)

It looks like you’ve found something that can’t get lost in anyone’s pocket, though. Something like that would have saved me a few moments of high blood pressure!!

[…] mama also made this ring posy. I mean, really, who says it has to be a pillow? What if your ring bearer isn’t a cute little […]

    I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt (and divorce papers) to prove it. Here I am again, pledging my life to my (new) love with eyes wide open (and heart racing) knowing full well how emotionally traumatic this can end… and doing it anyway.
