If you're having a flower girl, she needs a partner in crime — and, naturally, a ring bearer is the obvious choice! You and your groom are sure to look gorgeous together, but there are few pairs cuter than a flower girl and a ring bearer (unless, of course, you involve your dog — then we have a toss up!). Cuteness aside, the biggest advantage of adding a ring bearer is comfort level; your flower girl will likely feel much more confident if she knows she has someone to lean on, and we're sure your ring bearer will feel the same way.

From a sweet baby taking his first steps down the aisle to the littlest gent carrying the rings in a "locked" safe, we bundled some of our favorite ring bearer ideas together on Lover.ly. Of course, we have to share!

Perfect for a backyard wedding (or just to keep your ring bearer comfortable!), we adore this sweet personalized T-shirt complete with a tie.

Whether you opt for a sacred book or one of your all-time favorites, we love how this couple tied the rings to a vintage novel.

This ring bearer's bright bow tie and classic pillow is adorable, but the fact that he stuck his tongue out might just be our favorite part about this photo.

A flag with a simple statement is great for your ring bearer to carry in lieu of the rings! He will have so much fun waving it as he walks down the aisle.

Have your ring bearer (or flower girl) walk your best four-legged pal down the aisle. Your dog will likely keep your ring bearer's nerves at bay!

We love this preppy duo! There are few accessories more appropriate for a classic wedding than a monogrammed dress for your flower girl and a bow tie and blazer for your ring bearer.

Whether your wedding theme is vintage, shabby-chic, rustic, or DIY, we love this brightly-colored sign! Another sweet message to place on a sign before you walk down the aisle: "Here comes your girl."

The rings are stowed away in a safe, and this little guy looks like he belongs in the Secret Service. We just couldn't resist!

A perfect pair — we love that both the flower girl and ring bearer tossed petals as they walked down the aisle.
