The ring bearer tradition is not as historical a practice as many related to the modern wedding; however, it is a widely accepted and an often expected tradition, particularly in more formal affairs. The ring bearer, usually a relative of the bride or groom, is responsible for carrying the wedding rings to the altar during the ceremony. (Because these attendants are usually so young - generally between the ages of 4 and 10 - these days a set of artificial gold rings is usually tied onto a decorative wedding ring pillow so that the real articles aren't lost.) The ring bearer tradition probably arose from a desire to get young relatives involved in the ceremony by giving them an important function to perform.

Similarly, young female relatives are given the role of flower girls in formal weddings. The same age range as ring bearers, flower girls precede the bride up the isle, typically spreading flower petals. Many larger ceremonies have more than one flower girl, or may also include page boys, who are responsible for carrying the bride's train.
