@BurlapnLace:  We aren’t either. No kids are going to be a part of our wedding ceremony and we don’t need a flower girl or ring bearer either. K.I.S.S. is our motto.

We aren’t either.  We are having bridesmaids/groomsman, but really don’t know any kids young enough and figured why bother.

We aren’t either…all the kids in the family are too young. Like 18 months old.

I’m not having a ring bearer because there are no boys around the right age. We are having my neice as a flower girl though, because she is they world’s smartest and most well behaved 3 year old.

We are having 3 flower girls but no rng bearer. That’s jus the number and gender of kids that are most important in our lives. I don’t think it’s a big deal to have neither though.

We didn’t either. Some family members campaigned for their children (seriously) but I didn’t want to add another moving part to the mess!

@BurlapnLace:  Nop, we aren’t either. We don’t have any friends or family with young children, plus all that hassle of wrangling young kids, no thanks!

@BurlapnLace:  It’s actually kind of scary how mature she is at 3 years old. Everybody thinks she is 5 or 6. She knows more presidents (in order) than I do, she can read kindergarten books, and she is just all around an amazing kid. It’s going to be a lot to have my kids live up to in a few years!

Nope, no kids in the ceremony.  In fact. the only kid at the wedding was DH’s cousin’s baby.

There will be some kids invited, mostly children I know or children of my immediate cousins, but my brother though young is not old enough to be a ringbearer. He is instead a ‘brother of honour’ and will be standing with the groomsmen 🙂

I am, however, having my two fluffy white dogs walk down the aisle with my sister. One dog is hers from childhood and the other is mine, and as an animal lover (FI is too, he’s turned into a dog person due to our relationship and both dogs love him) it’s a fun way to keep the ceremony low key. I mean there’s dogs, you can’t be too serious when puppies are excitedly making their way down the aisle.

Nope. No flower girl, ring bearer, unity candle, sand ceremony, aisle runner, church… 

 

And not because we don’t have any relatives of the right age. I just straight up don’t want to deal with it, hah. They’re still invited to the wedding, just not involved in it.

@BurlapnLace:  We arent having either.. my family is all about 4 hours away so I didnt want them to have to pay for the extra nights at the hotel, plus the dress, etc.. they can enjoy the wedding without any pressure now
