Hi! I am new to the wedding bee site! I have four little nieces I would like to incorporate in my wedding ceremony. I don’t necessarily want all four to be flower girls. I’d like for the two younger girls to be flower girls but I don’t know what I could have the two seven year olds do. Any ideas? My fiancee doesn’t like the “Here comes the bride.” signs.

could they hand out programs?

You could have them walk the younger girls down the aisle, or just have them all walk. I had my three nieces (ages 4, 6, and 8) walk down.

I might just have them four walk down the aisle as flower girls. Is 4 flower girls too many?

@MrsHullToBe: All I can say is “BANNER BEARERS”, and I didn’t like the Here Comes The Bride Sign, So we had our monogram as the banner.
I too had 4 girls to try to fit in, so I made the older ones “Banner Bearers” (I even had that title in our programs..so their postition as banner bearers was official)…funny enough I had issues with my aunt because she didn’t like that fact that I didn’t just call them flower girls…umm my wedding aunty, thanks!! (lol)
coming down the aisle, I had them come after all the wedding party, right before my entrance
I also had them exsit in front of us for the recessional
Admittingly the sign was supposed to be not wrinkled, and have a bar attached to the top so both can hold on, but there was a issue with printing a week before the wedding, and my friend (who was my invite designer), had to bring it the day of the wedding, litterally right before the ceremony. But it still looked good.

@MrsHullToBe: My personal opinion is “all of none”. i.e. either have all 4 girls in the bridal party, or none, to avoid hurt feelings. 7 years old is a perfect age for a flower girl. Or they could be junior bridesmaids instead.
EDIT: In answer to your later post – I’ve never seen 4 flower girls done (except in the Prince William/Kate Middleton wedding), but I don’t see why not. If you’re worried about crowding, they could sit in the front row after walking down the aisle.
