Paying homage to our favorite wedding party member: the RING BEAR #Wedding Porn#costumes#ring bear February 21 | Catherine Clark enidjcoleslaw Photos by ABC Photo Studio Ring bearer? Sure. Ring BEAR? Hell yes! Every time we get to see a ring bear, we get excited. This is especially so when they are a life-sized member of the wedding party, as was the case at Emily and Kyle's cupcakes, kilts, and robots rainbow wedding. You can see their best pal Bear and his giant ass rings with the groomsmen below. We decided to pull together all of our favorite ring bears from weddings we've featured to pay respect to that most LOL-worthy of guests and bear(er) of rings, who sweats his or her way through the ceremony for our viewing pleasure. Oh, and a few stuffed bears get the spotlight, too! Photos by ABC Photo Studio Kyle's crew just wouldn't look right without him.

Photo by Lisette Parve and Shalisha Porter Vanessa and Derek had an awesome ring bear who totally got into the spirit at their geeky vintage bear-y jokester wedding.

Photo by Richard O'Connor Jess and James used this marionette ring bear to "even out" their wedding party. An even wedding party is never required, but I'll take any reason to add in this cuteness. Photo by Mikki Schaffner Helen and Steve had their bears wear hats and fuzzy bow ties instead of full-on bear suits. They growled down the aisle!
