FI and I would like to include his niece and 2 nephews in the ceremony.
The little girl will be 8 years old…is that too old to be a flower girl or does it not matter? I am not around children much, and have no idea at what "level" 8 years olds function (like, are they into dolls or cell phones? I have no idea).
One nephew will be 10, the other will be 7. We aren’t comfortable with them holding the rings (or in having them hold "stand-in rings" either). The only other role I’ve seen for small boys is carrying a "here comes the bride" banner, but I’m not crazy about that idea (am a little shy with all the attention on me).
I’m leaning toward scrapping any official "roles" and just asking them to walk down the aisle (maybe escorting their sister) like regular people. But I would love to hear any other ideas as well! Thanks!
