@sarahroby:  I don’t think there is really an age limit, although the younger they are the cuter lol

One of my parents’ neighbors was a ring bearer when he was 55 (in addition to two little dudes)!

While I don’t think there’s a like a set rule or specific cut-off, IMO 10 would probably be the oldest I would go. Just because I know when I was 10, I would not have wanted to be a FG.

@sarahroby:  I think unless its an actual “adult” that you want to do something “different” then…age isnt really the huge factor its their size!!! My DH family wanted his little cousins to be the flower girl and ring bearer…. the boy was 6 so he was fine… but the girl was 11…so bordering old…. but the biggest factor is shes so TALL (and she has boobs because shes got her period)… and only 3 inches shorter then me, MAYBE…..

My matron of honor is/was 5’2″ lol…… so she is taller then my matron of honor….. so ya…. that would have been RIDICULOUS looking if I had the flower girl (who is actually a little girl and not a friend) standing next to her??? I said sorry but someone her size would need to be a junior bridesmaid not a flower girl..and sorry but if thats the case shes not in the bridal party cause I dont know her. (and I already had 6 bridesmaids)
