    I say #4 for the photos or #5, to keep the family peace, but I would choose #4. Just say #1 can’t walk and you didn’t want to make #2 and #3 jealous of eachother. Ring bearers are too cute to leave out!

    @dv3849:  It sounds like “cousins kid 3” is the best choice – BUT, you never know how a kid will act at any given time. I highly doubt your nephew will be able to walk down the aisle on his own at 10 months, my nephew will be turning 1 this month and just learned to walk like a month ago. And he definitely wouldn’t make it all the way down an aisle.

    @dv3849:  Theres just no point to even having a ring bearer if they cant carry the rings  down the aisle!)…

    Most weddings I have been to the ring bearer doesnt actually carry the ring, since its a little kid. Usually they carry the pillow but the best man holds the rings.

    I’d say no ring bearer.  You can’t ask one cousins son to be the ring bearer and have his siblings not even invited or another cousins kids not even there.  It could create unnessary drama. I think the nephew would be the obvious choice as he is the most closely related, however 10 months is a little young, and it is doubtful he’d be able to do it by himself like you wanted. But if he is well behaved, it might be cute and special

    My son is autistic and he is usually out of control most of the time. He was a perfect little angel on our wedding day though RIGHT BEFORE he was to walk down the aisle he didn’t want to get out of my dad’s arms. My wedding planner grabbed him, handed him the pillow and pushed him out the door:

    @dv3849:  I think it’s hard for strangers to pick one kid over the other. Also you cannot seperate 2 brothers from each other, and have one not even come to the wedding…like pp said it will create drama.

    I say have all at the wedding (as guests) or have non at all.

    I think 4 or 5 are your best bets!

    Sounds like there is no right answer.  Just skip it.
