Age cap for ring bearer?

Melissa, on September 5, 2019 at 9:37 PM Posted in Wedding Ceremony 0 20
So I think this is a silly question but my FH thinks the ring bearer is too old. He is 10 and his sister who is 2 will be the flower girl. We had a 7 year old as the ring bearer but his mom just pulled him from the wedding 6 weeks away! So our only options are a 10 year old or a 18 month old who is just starting to walk.

    It's fine. The average age for a ring bearer is between 4 and 10 anyway.

    My ring bearer was 75 so I sure hope there isn’t an age restriction 😬

    As long as the kid is good with it, I’d say it’s fine.
    Meanwhile, I have no ring bearer. When I was at MOH’s house talking wedding one day, her 10 year old sternly informed me that he was too old to be a ring bearer. He said it was a baby job and he was big now. *rolleyes*

    Nah, not too old. Our ring bearer is FH’s older nephew and he’s almost 10, but literally looks like he’s 12.🤷‍♀️

    We will have 2, a 13 year old (so he isnt left out) and a 10 or so year old. Then our FG will be 6

    My 6 & 8 yr old will be our ring bearers and our 13 yr old daughter is our flower girl. I don't think age matters too much

    I don't let people dictate my choices. 1-100
    75yr old that's special. YOU decide, your
    wedding your day. Enjoy, it to the fullest.
    Congratulations!

    My nephew will turn 10 the week after our wedding. He is very proud and excited (and confessed to his mom) nervous about the big responsibility we have given him.

    If our wedding party turns out to be smaller than expected, you can 100% bet that my 16 year old brother is going to be the ring bearer!

    People often choose young for cuteness, but there is no reason any boy of any age ( or girl) cannot be ring bearer.
