I think it would be really sweet if they made something for your wedding! If you’re DIYing centrepieces they could help with that, or maybe you could just spend time with theM and make another type of decoration! I also think sending them something at school is a great idea, what better way to make theM feel special?

I was going to suggest saving them a piece of cake but I see you wrote that they live 1200 miles away and I wonder if cake would be good after that much travelling! Could you arrange for a bakery in their area to send them cupcakes that day? And include a note or card to them about how much they mean to you?

I have a lot of coworkers that return to India to get married – they usually set up a livestream video service so that we can see the ceremony and reception from here in the US. I don’t know how expensive that is but maybe it would be a way for your nieces to view your wedding? And if they helped with decorations or did a special videotaped reading, they could see how their hard work was incorporated into your ceremony?
