Wedding Child Attendants: Have a Flower Girl but No Ring Bearer?


I'd like to have my sister as my maid of honor and my daughter as my flower girl. My fiance, however, doesn't want a ring bearer. Would it be all right to have a flower girl without a ring bearer, or does she have to have a partner?


You don't need a little girl and a little boy in your wedding. Just having a flower girl is fine. Basically, you should only include the children who are important and close to you -- obviously, your daughter falls into this category -- without worrying about having to match little boys and girls.

Who Should Hold Our Wedding Rings Before The Ceremony?

My wedding is a couple of months away, but my fiance and I are having a problem deciding who to give our wedding rings to before the ceremony. He thinks we're supposed to give it to our best man, but I think it should go with the pastor. And at what point should we hand the rings off? My fiance also wants to give the rings away within the next couple of weeks, but I think we should wait until we're closer to the date. Help!
