Who knew that ring bearers could look so dapper? When I saw these adorable ties at The Little Gentleman’s Closet, I squealed. Okay, the squealing was on the inside because I was drinking coffee at the time, but still. Just look at the fashion statement your little guy can make going down the aisle. And after all, you should be looking out for him because he’s got the rings (seriously, who had the brilliant idea of giving the most critical detail of the ceremony to a five-year old child?).

We love the guys over at The Man Registry; they’re funny, have a great site just for the wedding men folk, and are very, well, manly. We couldn’t be happier to have them guest blogging for us today with ideas from the heart of their site. Enjoy!
Here’s a scenario that might sound familiar: there’s a month to go before the big day and you’ve just realized that your fiancé hasn’t even begun looking at groomsmen gifts yet. Don’t worry, it’s natural. Guys (as you know) love waiting until the last minute to get things accomplished. If you want to grease the rails, here are a few suggestions from The Man Registry…
You all know how much I love wedding finds that find a life after the big day; not only are you reminded of your wedding but you get more bang for your buck. And in the case of Paloma’s Nest’s Ring Bearer bowls, you also get a twist on a traditional favorite.
Rather than the classic ring bearer pillow, Caroline (the designer behind Paloma’s Nest) hand-crafts bowls from porcelain that feature ties so you don’t have to worry about rings flying off during the ceremony due to a distracted ring bearer. Each bowl is hand-stamped with a saying, date or name, making it an ideal heirloom. After you’ve used it for years as a ring bowl, of course.
She also offers two versions of customized text tiles, one which can be used to secure your bouquets, the other as lasting favors for your guests.
