more attendants means more money. Also are they well behaved? You may not want a temper tantrum if they are not well behaved, its up to you!

@ebifish:  Why not?  Do they still have the Flower Girl dresses from the other weddings?  To cut costs, maybe you could re-use them and just adapt them with a sash in your wedding colours.

We didn’t have a full bridal party – just two Flower Girl and it was great. They were super cute and definitely made everyone smile. Since yours are a little older, I think it would be fine to add them since it’s unlikely they would be super shy or upset going down the aisle. It’s true that they will just add to your expenses, but not a whole lot, especially if they have existing dresses or if mom is willing to help cover the cost. The extra cost associated with them would be flowers (unless you have something else for them to hold) and, if you want, gifts. They’re kids so their gifts don’t have to be lavish; even a nice book would be appropriate. You can definitely do without them but if you have the resources, they’re a nice addition!

For me the question becomes: how comfortable are you having two girls in your bridal party, who you’re not especially close to? I feel that the bridal party is for those closest, but that’s just my opinion.

We had an adorable niece who was just a bit too young (Not quite 2 1/2). I didn’t feel like we missed anything by not having her as a flower girl. I’m certainly glad that my bridal party was only those very close (my sister, my best friend, DH’s brother, DH’s best friend).
