    I think it could be cute.  I mean, there may be some guests who are confused and think that the baby just couldn’t be away from the parent and he had to carry him up there.  Also, are you having a mass or just a short ceremony because I can’t imagine a baby staying still even in his dad’s arms very long.  I guess if you are really considering it, you should talk to the baby’s parents and see if they’d even want this to happen.  It really isn’t a crime to have an uneven bridal party, either 😉

    I have to be honest… as cute as babies are… a baby can NOT be a groomsman.  I think the idea of the kid being in the wedding is fine, but not giving him a title that belongs to a MAN.  Go ahead and include the baby but give him a cute title like the best boy baby… since he’s the best man’s baby son.

    You don’t need to have even sides.  I think this would be a lot more effort than it is worth.

    If it feels right to you and the groom – go for it! I think it could be really cute.

    I think it might wind up being a lot more hassle the day of. He might super happy or he might be cranky that day, you never know. It would be a shame to have to worry about that.

    I say just have uneven sides

    Oh babies in suits are adorable!!!

    But as PepBandLove said, what if the little guy is cranky that day? I would hate for him to be fussy and have him interrupt the ceremony, but I would be 100% for the little guy sitting up there. How cute!

    I love the idea but really like the comment of making him the ‘Best Boy Baby’ – how cute is that!

    I think the idea is adorable.  Like some PPs have mentioned, there may be some added distraction.  Parents tend to naturally move when holding their kids.  It usually helps to keep them quiet.  It’s completely subconscious.  If you’re fine with dad dancing your Best Boy around a little bit during the ceremony, then go for it.
