Ever wondered why a tiny human carried your diamond ring down the aisle before you entered the church? Maybe it’s because no one looks cuter in a suit than a kid!
There are several theories on where the tradition started. In the Medieval era, a young male servant had the job of holding the bride’s train when walking down the aisle and the ring was carried on the tip of a sword. Soon after, wealthy families swapped out the sword for a pillow (much safer) because pillow’s were rare and it was a symbol of good fortune! This is the tradition we are most familiar with, even though the sword tradition makes us feel very Queen like (think Game of Thrones minus all the fighting).
As you know, we at Mojuba believe in making weddings fun and thinking outside the traditional wedding box. Don’t have a nephew, young cousin or the money in your wedding budget to rent a ring bearer(kidding)?
This little girl was the ring bearer for her mom, and she is giving us suit envy! One thing that goes hand in hand with kids at a wedding is our Mojuba Wedding Day Emergency Kit. So whatever surprises they throw at you, Mojuba has you covered.
life happens. be prepared.
