Can you have them serve as ushers, greeting people at the door and guiding them to a seat on the appropriate side? I am very close with my cousins so I am having them do that.

@ck2011:  Do they all want to be involved?  Some kids are shy and they may not want to be an active participant.  Why not make a list of small jobs they can do and then assign them things to do that are age (and perosnality) appropriate.  Some can usher guests to their seats.  Others can manage the guest book or pass out programs.  One can be a runner for you and/or your groom on the day of the wedding; someone to get things from each other if you don’t plan on seeing each other before the ceremony.  One or two can be reponsible for making sure everyone gets their flowers, corsages, bouts, etc…  I would break down tasks into one or two simple things and then ask them to do it.

My cousins didn’t want to “do” anything at my other cousins wedding. They were asked to hand out programs, and they just left to mess around and be boys. If you want to do something special, you could include them in the “intruductions” of the bridal party?

I didn’t have siblings involved at all. They all happily attended as guests.
