perhaps there are no such official titles/functions in a Polish wedding - I am not sure but never heard about such - there are groom's best men and bridesmades and that's all I am familiar with

The term "Ring bearer" is quite problematic. You will find everything you need in this thread: /free-translation-42/wedding-translations-please-best-man-father-groom-52067

When reading about a "ring bearer" I think about Frodo Baggins. :) In this case it can be translated as "powiernik pierścienia".

The usual word for "wedding ring" in Polish is "obrączka", not "pierścień". So "nosiciel obrączki" would be a literal translation of "ring bearer", and would be more easily understood than any term with "pierścień".

"nosiciel obrączki" sounds outright hilarious! The word nosiciel is usually associated with illness or a virus e.g. "nosiciel rzadkiej choroby"

Anyway imho I am not familiar with any polish equivalents of "ring bearer" or "flower girls", these terms have not been set, I think

Ussually the polish name for ring bearer is świadek or drużba - as it is a best man who carries rings. (see "Four Weddings and a Funeral "for how good it can end)

"Nosiciel obrączki" would be a person who has a ring on their finger.
