History and value of the wedding ring pillows

The details to take care of when organizing a wedding are so many and all important, although some may not be decisive for the success of the event. This is not the case with the wedding ring cushion, a decisive but very often underestimated object.

The story of the original wedding ring cushion

The history of the ring holder is as ancient as it is fascinating.

It originates in the Anglo-Saxon tradition according to which the wedding ring cushion had to be:

  • produced with the fabric with which the wedding dress was sewn
  • white and soft 
  • made of a circular shape to recall the shape of the rings.

The wedding ring holder cushion was used to place the rings in an elevated position all the way up to the altar.
At the end of the ceremony, tradition had it that the wedding ring cushions were later kept by the spouses to be handed down to new generations as a symbol of continuity within the family.

Times have changed and this traditional accessory is no longer so rigorous in the choice of shape, fabric or even color. In fact, it is not always a classic wedding ring pad but it can also be a box or an object of any shape particularly loved by the spouses, perhaps because it evokes a special moment in their couple's life.

Where do you buy wedding ring cushions

Despite its ancient origins, the classic wedding ring cushion in soft white satin remains a timeless accessory and is still among the most popular even in contemporary weddings. A soft silk wedding ring cushion in immaculate tones is the most suitable for highlighting the wedding rings and the values ​​that these rings represent.

Wedding ring holders are typically sold in jewelry, whether it is the classic or particular ring holder cushions which have the characteristic of being able to be packaged in customized ring presentation boxes. The packaging thus becomes complete and the wedding cushion is kept clean and protected until the ceremony.

 Who brings the wedding rings to the altar

Tradition has it that to preserve the meaning of the rings, the most suitable figure to bearer the wedding rings to the altar is a child, a symbol of purity and sincerity. According to the etiquette, therefore, the page boy who enters before the bride, as soon as the wedding march begins, must carry the wedding rings and is responsible for bringing the cushion with the wedding rings directly to the altar of the bride and groom.

According to the religious wedding ceremony, however, the rings must be brought to the church by the best man.

In any case, always according to etiquette, it is the groom who first unties the ribbon that binds the ring to the cushion to put it on the left ring finger of the bride, who will repeat the gesture immediately after him.

Note: the wedding rings in the picture have only an explanatory function of the packaging method, they are not precious and are excluded from the product on sale.
