ring bear

I love weddings with small children. They add a counterpoint to the formalities; spontaneity, the unexpected,.... comic relief.
I was delighted to learn that my daughter and son-in-law would be including two nephews and a niece in their wedding day; Two tiny ring bearers and a flower girl.
When the children came to try on their finery, one of the little boys seemed concerned.
"We don't look very much like bears," he warned. "Maybe we should wear ears."
It took his mother and I only moments to realize he thought he was going to be a ring bear. He had never heard of a ring bearer before.
On the wedding day they each carried a ring pillow; A small cream colored bear.
