I'm having an issue figuring out what to do for the ring exchange during our wedding ceremony. We have a tiny, almost non-existent wedding party with just MOH, Jr. Bridesmaid, and Flower Girl. Since we aren't having a full wedding party, we decided to only have the two of us stand up at the altar during the ceremony; our moms, and rest of the "party" would just take their seats after walking up the aisle. We're having a simple/short outdoor non-religious ceremony, no sand pouring or any of that, otherwise we would probably put on a small table at the front.
Bridal bouquet would be handed to my MOH (who would already be seated in the front left), and she would give back to me before we walk back up the aisle, but I can't decide how I want to handle the rings. I'm probably over-thinking this (or so my FH tells me), but I can't decide what I want to do!!
1. I thought about having either my MOH or mom hold onto them and give to us when it's time to exchange, but would that look weird for one of them to stand up, hand to us, and sit back down?
2. We could also have the moms hold them and each give to us, but then would that be weird with two people standing up and down?
3. Thought about having the officiant (also a friend of mine) hold them and give to us, too.
My FH is no help because he doesn't have a preference and will do whatever makes me happy (damn him and his flexibility! lol). I'm sure I'm over-thinking it but curious as to what other brides have done or plan to do. I keep going in circles in my head and not getting anywhere, so any suggestions could help me make up my mind.
