So, my youngest two brothers will be 7 and 9 when I get married and I would love to have them in the ceremony. When my older sister got married it was in the Greek Orthodox Church so the older brother carried a candle and the younger brother carried a basket of flowers that a girl handed out to guests down the aisle. <br /><br />My wedding will be outdoors at a country club and much less formal than my sister’s. I want my brothers involved in the ceremony, but we don’t know of any young girls we could ask to be a flower girl. I feel like having two ring bearers is possibly awkward and I don’t want to embarrass one of the boys by making him a “flower boy.” I also dislike the “here comes your bride” sign idea.<br /><br />Any alternative ideas for incorporating kids?

Could they be incorporated into a read together ity an older relative (perhaps your sister so it’s all siblings)?
Or they could walk your mum down the aisle before your bridesmaids?

In the Uk we have ‘page boys’, similar to ring bearers but with added responsibilities. Under age 10, they are like ‘mini ushers’. They walk behind the bride, helping carry her train / carrying the ring pillow / just being cute (if under 5). They sometimes stand by the entrance to the ceremony handing out the programs to guests and telling them which side to sit on before joining the procession. Its seen as quite a big role here, as the page boys are normally closely related to the bride or groom.
and at Will and Kates wedding :

SimTeam: my son is 9 and my daughter is 12 from my previous marriage. So both children will walk down together right before me. We are doing away with the whole ring bearer and flower girl thing so it works out. Then they will stand up in line, son on FI side and daughter on mine.

Could they escort your mother down the aisle? Or any single grandmothers?
I know they’re young, but they’re old enough to be ushers, probably.
