Duties of the Flower Girl
Wow how cute these little attendants are. Often one flower girl is chosen by the couple to participate in their wedding party. The ideal age for a flower girl is usually between three to seven years old. Obviously at this young age it is hard to expect much from them, so instead of these cute little ladies having responsibilities they are given simple tasks and duties.
Duties of the Ring Bearer
It is always nice to see young family members take part in weddings. Unlike little girls who have many positions to fill in weddings, boys are limited and have very few. The title as ring bearer is one such position that is available to a young boy. Often this young boy is a family member of the groom or the bride. He is usually between the ages of three to seven years old.

It is always nice to see young family members take part in weddings. Unlike little girls who have many positions to fill in weddings, boys are limited and have very few. The title as ring bearer is one such position that is available to a young boy. Often this young boy is a family member of the groom or the bride. He is usually between the ages of three to seven years old.

As with the other positions available to young attendants it is totally optional for them to be included. It’s more common to see young attendants participate in large formal weddings rather than small informal ones. The ring bearer often walks down the isle by himself or paired with the flower girl. Parents of the ring bearer are best seated at the end of the isle to help lure their child with awaiting comfort.

Children are unpredictable people. They may appear comfortable and interested at one point, but then at another it’s a whole new story. Kids will be kids however, so the best you can do is have them as well prepared and trained as is possible. Having an alternative method as a plan B is not a bad idea either. Maybe a candy or toy that will encourage them to move forward will do the trick. 
 

Parents of the ring bearer-
If you are the parent of a young attendant, you must be feeling very proud and excited. During the months approaching the wedding it is important for you to prepare your child for the role he will have to proceed with on the big day. As a parent of the ring bearer you will be responsible for the costs of his wedding day attire, getting him to and from the ceremony rehearsal and ensuring that he arrives on time the day of the wedding.

Duties set aside for the ring bearer

  • His family pays for the cost of his attire
  • Participates in the rehearsal but does not usually attend the rehearsal dinner
  • He immediately precedes the flower girl during the processional
  • The ring bearer is known for carrying the wedding rings, however in most cases the rings carried by him are false and the best man will have the actual rings. If you wish to have your ring bearer carry the actual rings be sure to have the rings fastened down with a hatpin for preventative cure purposes. If he is to carry the real rings, the best man will take them from him at the appropriate time during the ceremony
  • He will walk with the flower girl directly behind the couple during the recessional
  • The couple may choose to have an usher be responsible for the ring bearer or hire a baby sitter to do this job. This is most effective way of ensuring sure that he will remain appropriately groomed for pictures.

The ring bearer is usually dressed similar to the ushers and may even wear dress shorts instead of pants if desired. Often it is the parents who shop for the ring bearer’s attire as long as he does not need to match identically to the groomsmen.
