I think most people can agree that little kids are not the best people to trust with an important task. However, for some reason, tradition still dictates that a couple should select a young child to deliver two very precious pieces of jewelry down an aisle while balancing them precariously on a pillow. Does anyone else see a problem with this plan? No? OK, as rife with error as this whole arrangement is, there is absolutely no denying that ring bearers are adorable. Sweet stories about ring bearers never fail to make me smile — and the more havoc they wreak, the better (as long as it's not my wedding).
For our own wedding, my husband and I had our plump corgi-lab mix trot down the aisle with a little pillow that had two fake rings sewn on. He definitely stole the show, but he still did a wonderful job (even though he still doesn't know the rings were counterfeit. Shh, don't tell!). I searched Twitter and a funny Reddit thread about scene-stealing ring bearers to collect the sweetest stories I could find. I dare you not to laugh at these stories about ring bearers who didn't quite stick to their role (but were totally adorable anyway).
