Etsy Finds: Ring Bearer Pillows

From the desk of: Veronica

Hello, folks! You might already know that I could plan a million weddings for myself, so it will come as no surprise to you that I love looking through all things wedding and picking out my favorites. This time, I browsed through some ring bearer pillows on Etsy and picked a few I thought you should see.

Ivory ring pillow Wedding ring pillow Ring pillow with feathers

Ivory ring pillow, $18

Feathers and brooches and all over the wedding scene these days, for good reason. They are a little different while being very classy. This pillow is beautiful AND it costs less than the standard pillow from the wedding aisles of Joann, Hobby Lobby, or Wal-Mart. Plus, the seller is from Lithuania and I am a quarter Lithuanian, so … you know. 🙂

Ivory ring pillow, $20 (can also be made in white)

This from the same seller as above, and I like it for all the same reasons — unique, beautiful, fantastic use of brooch, great price.

Monogrammed Irish Linen Ring Bearer Pillow Style 5821

Monogrammed Irish Linen Ring Bearer Pillow, $54

Need a few traditional touches in your ceremony? Are you Irish? Do you love monograms and personalized touches? If you answered “yes” to any of the following, have I got the pillow for you!

Ivory Ring Bearer Pillow Lace Ring Pillow Pearl Rhinestone Accent

Ivory Lace Ring Bearer Pillow, $39

Simple, yet not too simple, fancy, but not too fancy — just the right amount of lace and bling. Lovely.

Ring Bearer Pillow – The Elizabeth, $86

I’ve always been a sucker for giant flowers (just ask my daughters, who, on more than one occasion, have been made to wear flowers in their hair roughly the same size as their heads), so this one spoke to me.

Wedding Ring Bearer Pillow - White (Made to Order)

Wedding Ring Bearer Pillow (made to order), $110

If you have a little room in your budget and also require a little bling, might I suggest this bad boy.

I couldn’t resist adding this one, since I walked down the aisle to this song. She also has other fun sayings, like “Eat Me” (for an Alice in Wonderland wedding?) and “It’s a nice day for a white wedding.”

You know what people love? Etsy. 

You know what people who are planning a wedding love? Extra-special handmade touches. And Etsy.

Since apparently we’re all fans of Etsy, I’d like to offer you a few round-ups to show you what’s out there. This week: Cold weather wedding accessories.


The weather took quite the turn here in Michigan this week. Snow. In my yard, people. IN MY YARD. I’m not a fan of snow, and I’m not a fan of the cold in any capacity, and yet … I had  winter wedding. I know, I know.

When the temperature plummeted, I thought about all the cold-weather weddings ahead and the wedding parties that are planning to brave the elements — if only for a few minutes — to get some beautiful photos in the splendor that is a winter scene. Here are a few of my favorite things to keep you cute and (relatively) warm while still managing to keep your wedding duds exposed.

1. A faux fur wrap

White Faux fur wrap bridal stole 800MM-WHIWhite faux fur wrap, $59.99

As classy as can be, especially with a nice detail like a sparkly brooch. Why not have your bridal party wear them as well?

2. A faux fur muff

Faux fur muff, $28.95

I find these so elegant and classic. Keep your hands warm and look extra-fancy? Yes, please.

3. White gloves

ROSEBUD GLOVES made in France vintage 1950s white leather wrist gloves size 6.5Vintage rosebud gloves, $28.50

Obviously you could go a lot of different ways on this one, depending on the look you are going for and how casual the affair might be, but something about these leather gloves just called to me.

4. Faux fur ear muffs

White faux fur and lace earmuffs, $29

If you don’t mind the possibility of messing up your hair or want to go all out with the outdoor look, these are made for you. They would also be great for a flowergirl who might not be as pleased to be outdoors in her flowergirl dress. These even have a hint of lace!

5. Faux fur hat

White Faux Fur Snow Hat

White faux fur hat, $75

If earmuffs aren’t your thing, perhaps a hat is? My dad has a faux fur hat we all call his Russian hat, and DANG that thing is warm. You could go outdoors in only that and it will hold the heat in like you wouldn’t believe.

These are my favorites. What would you add to the list?
