Ring pillow

Tyanna, on 1/January/2019 at 00:27 Posted in Wedding ceremony
What are you using for ring pillows?

I love the idea of this lock and I don't mind paying the $100 for it, but I'm having a very hard time justifying $62 for shipping 馃槶. We would later use it as home decor in our living room, but 60% of the total being shipping seems so crazy to me.

Other ideas I've thought of are:

having a captain America shield dog toy that we found at our local petstore (our ring bearer will be wearing captain America socks and cuff links)

Having an actual little box with our initials carved in like this one or the string heart that we can later turn either one if them to a tree ornament

    My woodworking in-laws are hand carving a box out of walnut and engraving it for us with a tiny little hinge!

    awesome I never seen the first one lock with a key, that's a great idea. This way the rings won't get lost but making sure the Best man has the key. Shipping on line that's the way things are now.

    That lock is gorgeous!!! But I'm with you on the shipping.. it's almost just as much as the lock itself.. I don't think I could do it but I would endlessly search for something similar.. I just have a small wooden box that holds both the rings.

    Lock concept is nice and your right about justifying the cost of the shipping. It seems expensive along with the taxes on top. I wouldn't do it for that price. A simple pillow can do the job or box to hold the rings.

    That's awesome!!!

    my friend did that. got a silver briefcase (put the rings in 2 boxes inside of as the nephews were older). they had dress pants and sandals on (beach wedding). and had a ring security shirt, aviators, and even a fake earpiece. it was AWESOME! and such a hit!

    The lock is so beautiful, but in my opinion, wouldn't be worth the cost. However, it's just one day. And if you're going to be buying something at an unreasonable cost, it's probably only going to be for your wedding, so that being said, if you truly love it and nothing compares, get it. Just consider how much you're actually going to be seeing it the day of (will it contribute to your happily ever after, or will you be so overjoyed, and possibly overwhelmed to notice it?).

    We have a beautiful little box like in your photo. It says "with this ring" on the front in a pretty script and has a matching leaf detail to our invitations. My sister in law to be bought it for us and my family was like ???you have a box.. what about the pillow. But we don't care Smiley smile We love the box! My newphew/RB is 8 so he'll probably have the actual rings.

    What an amazing idea!!!! I love the concept of the ring bearer only having access to the box. Hope you don't mind my using this idea.

    I ordered a wooden engraved ring box from aliexpress. has our initials and wedding date. took about 6 weeks go get to us. but it was only 12 bucks.

    we are not giving our nephew the rings as he is too young in my opinion (hes 4). we are going to have a fun sign instead (like "i'm just here for the cake")

    This one is from etsy! It's great quality which I like. The others look cheaper and I dont like them as much 馃様

    I like the little box! However I always feel when it comes to the ring bearers... people really wont see very much what they are carrying! I think it's usual too for the Best Man to be carrying the actual rings (because kids can be fussy lets be real)

    Our Best Man will be holding out rings and out 2 bearers will be coming down the aisle, probably with a simple pillow each and a fake ring on it!

    I still love the lock and key - is it just the same size as a normal lock? Or is it extra large or something? From the looks of the rings on them it looks regular sized - have your tried etsy? I know that this one isn't the same and has the engraving on the back but it ships for just $7 https://www.etsy.com/ca - customisable heart shape wedding lock

    That sounds awesome! At first I was like - ya, another ring security bit.. but with the add on of the ring pops and hopefully scaring the groom a bit I LOVE IT!! lol

    I'm getting a black metal 'ring security' lunch box for our ring bearer to carry, which will be personalized for him and he'll get to keep.

    A little secret that no one knows about...and won't until the day of... the ring bearer will be carrying ring pops in the lunch box. My maid of honour and my fianc茅's best woman will have the actual rings clasped onto their bouquets. Smiley winking Here's hoping my fianc茅 doesn't kill me or have a heart attack when he opens the lunch box and finds the ring pops in there!
