There is no age limit for a ring bearer. Sometimes the best man is the ring bearer…

I’ve never actually seen a wedding wherein someone carries the train – it’s usually up to a bridesmaid to adjust it in pictures, make sure it doesn’t snag in the door, etc. There are plenty of roles your godson can play if you’re not wedded to the train thing. Ring bearer, Jr Groomsman, guest book attendant, greeter/usher, etc.

As for how long your train should be: well, how long do you want it? That’s really the only thing you have to worry about 😀

I’m sorry, but I can’t imagine any 13 year old young man wishing to be a train bearer.
