Having kids participate in your wedding ceremony is so special. Don’t get me wrong – it can definitely be a little bit of a headache getting them to understand exactly what their job is, directing them on where to walk and when, and hoping that they don’t get shy or have a temper tantrum moments before it’s go time. In the end; however, it’s worth it. They’ll get some smiles and giggles from guests, they’ll feel important and like part of the action, and you’ll get a few great photos and memories out of it, which is what it’s all about.
While traditionally flower girls carried a basket and tossed petals, and ring bearers were in charge of the safe keeping and transportation of the rings down the aisle to the alter, some couples are choosing to switch it up. Ring bearer and flower girl signs are a great way to personalize your ceremony and give your participants something to hold, rather than something to do, which is sometimes more achievable depending on their age.
You might also have several children participating in your ceremony. If that’s the case, perhaps one or two of them can take on the more traditional roles, while the others can carry a fun and unique sign. We’ve also seen quite a few furry friends participating in wedding ceremonies. If you haven’t taught Fido to toss flowers, a lightweight sign around their neck is a great way to include them.
We’ve rounded up 10 great signs suitable for your flower girl and ring bearer. If none of these are quite right, you can continue shopping here.

It’s extremely light, has “Here Comes the Bride” is printed in matte coral ink, and can be printed on either white or ivory paper. Beautiful blush pink satin ribbon is stitched down the spine, hiding a sturdy wooden poplar dowel. This sign is a 8″ x 11″ rectangle with a 25″ dowel and ribbon.

5. Here Comes the Bride Ring Bearer Banner
Burlap and paper are good choices if you’re worried about the weight, but if you’re looking for something a little bit more crisp and elegant looking, this linen banner is very clean and professional looking. Measuring 18″ x 20″ and with a 24″ long pole, this lightweight option is made with very high quality white linen and crisp black print. The size of this banner also makes it a good choice if you have two ring bearers or flower girls who are participating in your ceremony together.

8. “And They Lived Happily Ever After” Wedding Sign
While the most common time for a ring bearer or flower girl to carry a sign is during the processional, we love the idea of switching it up a little and having them carry a sign during the processional instead. After the vows have been exchanges and the “I dos” have been said, have your ring bearer or flower girl carry this awesome sign that reads “and they lived happily ever after” for happy tears from guests and some great photo ops. You can also use this sign for a few great bride and groom pictures later in the evening. This shop is home to many beautiful wedding signs like this gorgeous welcome sign, this signature cocktail drink sign, or this guest book sign, among many others.
