Your ring bearer has an important job to do—making sure that your precious wedding rings make it down the aisle safely. A wedding ring pillow, also called a ring bearer pillow or ring cushion, is an important vessel to help transport the rings on the big day (it often features ribbons that can be tied to the rings for an extra level of safety). It can also serve as a nice addition to your decor, as ring pillows come in a variety of colors, styles and sizes (though the traditional ring pillow is an 8-inch by 8-inch square, you can choose bigger or smaller options depending on the age and size of your ring bearer).

Now, do you actually need a ring pillow? Well, if you're not having a ring bearer and your best man or other loved one is carrying your ring down the aisle, you definitely don't need a ring bearer pillow. But if you've enlisted a young person to be your ring bearer, it's nice to give them something to carry to help hold the rings—whether it's a ring pillow or a unique pillow alternative (we've included some below). If you're fortunate enough to have a family heirloom ring pillow, featuring it at the ceremony is a nice way to tie past and present.

If you're ready to start shopping, we're here to point you in the right direction. Here's your ultimate guide to wedding ring pillows, including a list of our favorite options you can buy right now.

Where to Buy Wedding Ring Pillows

When it comes to shopping for your ring pillow, you'll want to find something that complements your wedding color scheme, theme and your ring bearer's attire. Fortunately, there are many retailers that sell ring bearer pillows at a variety of price points (because ring pillows are not something you need to bust your budget on!). Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Etsy: This marketplace of handmade items features a wide range of wedding ring pillows, many of which can be customized and personalized to fit your theme and style.
  • Amazon: If buying a wedding ring pillow has slipped your mind and your wedding's this weekend, Amazon's fast shipping and vast options make it the perfect retailer to find a last-minute ring pillow.
  • Walmart: Affordability is the name of the game at Walmart, where many ring bearer pillows are under $10.
  • The Knot Shop: Couples looking for a one-stop shop for all their decor needs should definitely check out The Knot Shop. Not only will you find wedding ring pillows (and pillow alternatives!), you can also buy ring bearer gifts, flower girl baskets and more.
