The ring bearer is usually one of the cutest aspects of the ceremony. Guests usually crane their necks to get a peek of the ring bearer as he presents something to the new couple that they will wear everyday for the rest of their lives, something that will forever signify their love, commitment, and dedication to each other. Don’t overlook this detail.

For a beach wedding, why not present the rings in a more organic manner? Placing them in a shell symbolized the natural love present between the couple. Make sure you have a reliable ring bearer if the rings are just sitting on top of the sand like in this picture, you don’t want the rings to be dropped on the beach!

If the bride and groom have a favorite furry friend they would like to incorporate in the wedding, a ring bearer position can be the perfect fit. Dogs usually work better than other pets just because they tend to come when you call them. You want a reliable and well-trained pet that will stick to the plan.


 Help your ring bearer understand he is an important part of the wedding ceremony. He will hold an extremely important part of the wedding so make him feel as special as he is.

If the wedding is outdoors or if the couple loves spending time in nature a moss bed is perfect for holding the rings.The addition of a splash of color can highlight the silver rings as essential symbols of the couple’s love.

A fun craft the couple can do together before the wedding is to make their own ring bearer box. They can personalize not only the exterior of the box but maybe they can each choose different fabrics to cushion the rings.

A book can also be used to hold the couple’s rings. For couples who are spiritual or religious a bible can be the perfect thing to demonstrate the holy unity of the newlyweds. A novel or some type of literature that the couple really shares a love for can also be the ideal way to present the rings.

Blush, coral, flesh, flush, fuchsia, magenta, raspberry, rose, and salmon are all synonymous with pink. Pink is a softer, less violent red. Both red and pink denote love but while red is hot passion, pink is romantic and charming.

  • Use pink to convey playfulness (hot pink flamingos) and tenderness (pastel pinks).


  • Multiple shades of pink and light purple or other pastels used together maintain the soft, delicate, and playful nature of pink.
  • Add strength with darker shades of pinks and purple and burgundy.

  • All shades of pink get sophisticated when combined with black or gray or medium to darker shades of blue.
  • Medium to dark green with pink is also a sharp-looking combo.

Considered the negation of color, black is conservative and goes well with almost any color except the very dark. Black is a great color to convey elegance and sophistication. Black can also add a touch of mystery.


In clothing, black is visually slimming. Like other dark colors, it can make a room appear to shrink in size. Even a well-lit room looks dark with a lot of black. Black can also make other colors appear brighter.




These words are synonymous with or represent various shades of the color black: coal, charcoal, ebony, ink, jet, lampblack, midnight, obsidian, onyx, raven, sable, soot.

Green is life. Abundant in nature, green signifies growth, renewal, health, and environment, the color is reminiscent of Spring.


Using Green:
  • With both a warming and cooling effect, the color green denotes balance, harmony, and stability.
  • Use several shades of green for a fresh, Springtime feel.
  • Olive, also called olive drab, is a not so drab summery green that may have military overtones for some people.


The color green is diverse. Emerald, lime, beryl, sap, aquamarine and pine are all terms used to describe different shades of green. It is a restful color with some of the same calming attributes of blue.


Using Green with Other Colors
  • Green with blue produces echoes of nature – water and forest and can denote new beginnings and growth.


  • Green with brown, tan, or beige says organic or recycled and can be a good color combination for packaging of those type of products.


  • Tri-color combinations of green with yellow and black or white are sporty, outdoorsy colors. Purple with green can be high contrast, lively.


  • Lime green with orange and yellow is a fresh and fruity palette.

While red is associated with fiery heat, orange is associated with the benign warmth of the sun. A dynamic color to be sure, orange offers a more thoughtful control than explosive red. Curiosity is a driving characteristic of orange, and with it comes exploration of new things.



Put some orange in your life when you want to spice things up when you feel time is dragging; to become more involved in something; to increase creativity; relief from things becoming too serious.



Though orange is vibrant, it has a bit less intensity or aggression than red, calmed by the cheerfulness of yellow. Pumpkin, gold, flame, copper, brass, apricot, peach, citrus, tangerine  and vermilion are all terms used to describe different shades of orange.


How to mix match orange with other colors

While orange and black are traditional Halloween colors, orange really pops with a medium blue. Red, yellow and orange can be a fiery hot combination or a fresh, fruity experience in softer shades. Make orange tropical with green.


Use caution mixing orange and pink, unless you want to recreate a vibrating 60’s psychedelic look. Try a dash of orange with deep purple or a dash of purple with a bit of orange, tempered by lots of mellow yellow or white for an eye-catching look that’s not overpowering.
