Original ring pillow alternatives

Usually wedding couples will choose a ring pillow to make sure the wedding rings arrive in one piece at the ceremony and altar. Do you want something different than a ring pillow? We'll give you some cool and inspiring ideas for different ways to wrap and transport the rings. The alternatives are not all that complex, so get creative and make your own ring pillow!

The treasure chest

Treasure, that is what you are! Your rings may be costly, but your love for each other is priceless. That's why you tie the knot. A beautiful symbolic idea with a vintage edge. Put your initials in it or Mr. & Mrs and your new surname. Very romantic!

The tree trunk

Egdy, but stylish: the three trunk. Drill a hole in it and put the rings in there. Go to the forest together and pick a nice small trunk. Extremely easy to make yourself!

The shell

Are you true beach lovers? Then pick a beautiful shell as a ring pillow. Make sure to tie the rings well, for example by making a tiny hole through which you pull a ribbon.

Mini-coffin

This is obviously kind of a personal preference and you gotta love it, but the symbolism behind it is beautiful. Literally: till death do us part. A mini-coffin: getting married with a bit of a dark edge.

Ring pillows from flowers

For this you can ask the help of your florist, or do it yourself. Buy a some nice fresh flowers and put these in a piece of oasis. Also make sure the bottom is covered with flowers to make it look like a real soft pillow.

Coconut

For that exotic wedding vibe: the coconut. Cover the top with moss and done. Please note: you can't just take moss from the forest anywhere, so just buy some at your local garden store.

Willow branches

A beauty on its own: willow branches. You can easily buy these at your local florist. Buy some additional flowers to add some colors. Bind everything together, add some ribbons and done!

The coffee cup

Another original idea: the coffee cup. With or with saucer, it does not really matter. Find a cup that matches the color of your wedding. Add a mini pillow or other filling to it on which the rings will rest, wrap a ribbon around it and....wedding time!
