There are so many fun directions to take your patterns, colors, and styles in shirts for ring bearers. If you’re marrying in warm weather, consider a linen blend that matches your tropical setting, especially if you can pair it with shorts or even dressy children’s sandals.
For a rustic, farm-chic look, consider a gingham or plaid button-up shirt with colored suspenders and a matching bowtie. Add a tan or navy-blue vest to tie the whole look together.
You can also keep him comfy by choosing a simple polo shirt or—if your ring bearer is still a toddler—choose an over-the-head shirt that looks like a button-up without the restrictive feel.
On the fence about a little suit jacket for the ring bearer? You can always ask him to wear one for family photos but let him walk down the aisle without it for comfort. In any event, match the style of the jacket with the groom’s party. Opt for a light linen jacket in warmer weather or a cozy tweed in the winter.
