Who holds the bride's ring?

Usually the honor attendants will simply slip the ring on their finger (the maid of honor uses her thumb to hold the groom's ring; the bride's usually fits on the best man's pinky).

Who puts the ring on first?

Typically the man goes first, followed by the woman saying the exact same promise (except saying the appropriate “husband” or “wife” or “spouse”). In my opinion, the wedding vows should contain the majority of your promises to each other, with the ring exchange sort of being “the icing on the cake.”

Do you wear your engagement ring on your wedding day?

During the Wedding Ceremony
The first one is you can place your engagement ring on your right ring finger till after the ceremony. You don't want a stuck piece of jewelry on your wedding day! The next option would be to simply leave the engagement ring on the left ring finger and put the wedding ring on top of it.

Do ring bearers have to carry pillow?

The ring bearer, traditionally a small boy aged four to eight, walks down the aisle just before the flower girl (if there is one), carrying a pillow with two rings tied to it. Whatever you choose to have the ring bearer carry, be sure he's told about his duties ahead of time.

Is 10 too old to be a flower girl?

This is the sweet spot for flower girls - old enough to be out of diapers and able to understand instructions, but young enough to generate a collective "awwww" among your guests. You can have a flower girl who's 9 or 10 (they're so cute, too!), but at this age, she might prefer to be called a junior bridesmaid.

What is a wedding ring a symbol of?

The wedding ring is an emblem of love through time, a symbol of devotion and an agreement between two parties to love and cherish one another for the rest of their days. Wedding rings are, of course, circular in shape and this in itself carries a symbolic meaning for the couple getting married.
