Ring Pillows

 Let’s look back in history and reveal the origins of wedding ceremony ring pillows. Ancient Roman and Egyptian tradition tells us they used a pillow to carry precious silver and gold stones. The actual purpose of using the pillow was to prevent anyone from touching the treasured jewels.

Times have certainly changed since then. At wedding ceremonies, page boys will carry the pillow down the aisle and attached to it are the happy couple’s wedding rings. Did you know even the ribbons attached to ring pillows have significant meaning? It comes from a European custom which symbolises the commitment of love to one another. The tying of their wedding rings together represents the precious bond between the married couple. Isn’t that just the most heart warming tradition ever!
