    I didnt vote because we are planning to have our two Boston Terriers as “flower girls” and there wasnt an option for crazy people like me :-p

    No, of course a ring bearer or flower girl are not necessary 🙂 Only what YOU want in your wedding is 🙂

    No, because I don’t really have any kids I feel close to and I don’t want to bother with it.  Neither of us have any nieces or nephews either.

    Our 2 year old niece is going to be our flower girl and my 5 year old cousin is going to be the ring bearer.  I think it just adds a cute, nice touch to the wedding!

    @Mint2Bee:  I don’t think it’s necessary at all, it is a cute “extra foofy thing to add” in my opinion, but definitely adds another spinning plate to the lot… toddlers, as cute as they are, can be unpredictible and temperamental!

    I’m not having a ring bearer, but we are planning on a flower girl. I didn’t vote because there wasn’t really an either/or option.

    I voted yes because I’m optimistic – my FI was born and raised until 16 years old in Costa Rica, and most of his family lives there now, including his two nieces and his nephew. At the time of the wedding the girls will be 8 and 6 and his nephew will be 7, and if they are granted visas into the country for the wedding, they will be our flower girls and ring bearer.

    We’re asking them to be in the wedding because we want them to be a part of the ceremony, especially since we don’t get to see them often, but not because we thing they’re necessary roles. If luck doesn’t go our way and they can’t make it, we won’t be asking any other children to replace them.

    I have 2 daughters and 1 son. Since this is a second marriage, I really wanted the children to feel like this was a wedding for our family. So I did not have bridesmaids or groomsmen. No maid of honor or best man. Just my two little flower girls and my little ring bearer.

    I thought peopel might think it was weird, but on my wedding day everyone commented on ow beautiful and perfect it all was. So I guess, you have in your wedding the elements that make you happy. 🙂

    @Mint2Bee:  I did have 2 flower girls and one ringbearer. Totally unnecessary but I just loved how cute they looked

    Ugh I am having way too many of both. Both my and FI’s siblings really want their kids included, so we have 3 flower girls and 4 ring bearers. I am fairly sure only one of each will make it down the aisle and I am totally fine with that, my mom just wants a picture of them all looking identical.

    My nephew will be about 1 at our wedding so he will be our “ring bearer” althout I won’t be terribly upset if he doesn’t feel like walking down the aisle or participating lol it’s more or less just so he’s part of the day and photos since he’s my only neice/nephew and his mom and dad are flying across the country to be there. I’ve given FI the task or finding a flower girl because my family is seriously lacking on the little girls lol his cousin has a little girl who will be about 3 but he doesn’t think she’s cute enough *rolls eyes* lol

    Totally not necessary; I’ve been to plenty of weddings without them. Probably more without them than with, come to think of it. I would only do it if there is a specific child/children you really want to include in the ceremony. We had several flower girls because I have several nieces who were aged 5-6 at the time, and they really wanted to be involved. If you don’t have anyone in mind, I wouldn’t force it.

    Definitely not necessary. We’re doing it because we have little kids in our lives that we’re close to.
