I would go with the 2 youngest if I were you (the ones that will be 3) It’s obvious that way you aren’t “picking favorites”. Or you could not have any, which is what we are doing to avoid your dilemma! Haha!

Actually this may not be as big of a problem as you think. Most of the kids in my family don’t want to serve in the wedding bc they’re too shy or too young. I would ask the kids or their parents to see if this is something they think would be a feasible idea. Also even if they don’t want to “serve” you can always get them a flowergirl dress and take pics with them later so they feel included without having them walk down the aisle.

I had 3 flower girls, 1 ring bearer, 2 jr groomsmen (they really didn’t do anything but walk down the aisle and pass out programs beforehand) and a jr bridesmaid.  Quite a few people told me that I was having too many, but which one was I going to leave out?  The kids all behaved beautifully and had a great time.

If you are only going with one, go with the oldest–7 isn’t too old to be a flower girl.  The other ones are too young to know what is going on, but the 7 year old would be crushed if she wasn’t included.

I agree with PP – I would pick the oldest niece and nephew (10 and 7 seems good to me) to be FG and RB. Or, if you like, oldest on each side (yours and his).

We’re having 2 FGs (both his side, one cousin and one friend of the family, 6 and 7 yrs old), 1 “junior FG” (my side, 1 year old, our Goddaughter, my sister’s daughter), and 1 RB (my sister’s son, 6 yrs old).

Hope this helps!

I remember reading somewhere about a bride who didn’t have an official flowergirl… she had a bunch of small bouquets made up (they wouldn’t have to be real or very fancy) and every little girl who wanted to was invited to join in the procession. This would work best for a more casual wedding but I thought it was a cute idea.

I’d pick the little ones – they’re going to be the cutest! : ) I don’t think it seems like picking favourites….

Since the older girls are so close in age, I think it’s fine to exclude them. Just choose the 3 year olds.

I have four, ages  5, 7, 9 , almost 10. So clearly, I’m of the thought the more the merrier.   🙁
