Ring-Bearer

BREAKING NEWS!

Worlds Cutest Ring Bearer Strikes Again!

MeDylWedding

My sister got married earlier this month, and Dylan was her ring-bearer. Just like during my wedding, I wrote a social story to prepare him for the big day. He loved reading through it and knew exactly what was expected of him, in order to earn his reward (some Bendaroos). On the rehearsal day, I reminded him to walk slow, hold the flower girl’s hand, and most importantly: to have a quiet voice and calm hands. He did great!!

When the sound techs turned on the processional music, Dylan boldly ordered them “Turn it up!” Then when practicing the exit, he grabbed the flower girl’s hand and ran down the aisle, smiling and laughing. It wasn’t what he was supposed to do, but it was adorable. It was perfectly Dylan.

Then came the big day…. Unexpectedly, he got upset about his boutonniere. (Who woulda thunk?) So we did a little “First-Then” strategy with him. “First take a few pictures, then you can take it off.” He wiped his tears and smiled for the pictures, then we promptly removed the flower from his tux. As we were about to enter the church, he decided he was okay with the flower, so we popped it back on. I whispered to him to remember to walk slow, stand in his spot, and have a very quiet voice, with no talking.

He made his way down the aisle, escorting the flower girl like a gentleman.

He stood in his spot, between 2 groomsmen, and held their hands. (SO FLIPPIN’ CUTE!)

A few minutes into the ceremony, he left the stage to go sit with his dad. Then he was chattering about who-knows-what. He eventually quieted down and even came back up to walk the flower girl back down the aisle at the end.

He did a fantastic job, all in all. And I know my sister feels just as blessed as I did to have him be a part of her wedding. Afterall, Dyl is the best ring bearer in the world 🙂
