If you choose to have a ring bearer in your party, make sure that he is a willing participant. Oftentimes he is too young or emotionally not ready to handle all the festivities without a break down. Also, not all children are meant to be flower girls or ring bearers. If the child is adamantly resistant to the idea, or is exceedingly shy, it may be best to find a substitute that will enjoy the whole process.
