I always thought having these would be important for my wedding…but I’m not close with any of the kids in my family. Besides one little boy who is only two. And the only girl that my boyfriend and I even would consider is eight. How awkward is that? Can I have one and not the other? Or just none? Or just go with a really young ring bearer and an older flower girl?

We didn’t have either because we aren’t close with any kids.

I don’t know of any rule saying you can’t have a young ring bearer and an older flower girl. I think you should just go with what feels right and not worry about the age. If you’re not close enough to any of the kids, you don’t need a Flower Girl or Ring Bearer. I’ve been to weddings without them, its totally fine.

I’m so horrible with kids too…I want to be able to pick and choose which kids are allowed to come. How horrible is that? My side of the family has LOTS of kids. And I just don’t envision my wedding with tons of kids running around. Hmph. I sound like such a scrooge.
