Being a ring bearer is no easy task for the smallest guy in your wedding party. It’s a long walk down the aisle, especially since he’s responsible for carrying your wedding bands to the altar. (If you’re reasonably apprehensive about trusting a rambunctious 7-year-old with your wedding bands, either swap them with a fake pair or give him a personalized sign to carry as a cute alternative.) From simple flags to handmade banners, these sweet signs guarantee your ring bearer will make an unforgettable ceremony entrance.
