My fiance wants his brothers 2 year old twins to walk down the aisle .. assuming they will be able to do it without a parent … He also wants both of his nieces .. ages 6 and 8 to be flowers girls .. I already have a flower girl!!! Now he wants the best man’s 8 year old son to be a ring bearer .. we already have this base covered!!! 6 kids walking down the aisle????????

That is quite a few! Maybe talk to him about all those kids standing up there and see if you guys can cut back!

It could get a bit confusing, chances are you’ll lose a kid or two before the finish line (I’ve been to weddings where the little ones just never quite make it to the alter). But its kids, so its cute. And the not only to the parents feel honored, the guests love that silly stuff!

i think it would be adorable… but if you do end up having all of those kids you might want to think about having the 2 year olds being pulled in a wagon or something. they’re a little young to get all the way down the aisle. if you don’t want all the kids just talk to him about it. there’s really no need for multiple ring bearers, maybe you can say you just want to stick with family?

That’s a lot of kids! But 2 year old boys (or girls) are probably never going to make it down the aisle ok anyway– that’s REALLY young for that type of pressure.

That is quite a lot of kids. Maybe just choose one or two of each, just so there is not too much commotion.
I do like the idea of a wagon, as it is a popular idea these days, but 6 kids with a wagon can get overwhelming! Maybe just chat with your Fiance about keeping it simple?

That is a lot of kids… I love the 2 year olds being pulled in a wagon idea.
I just decided only to use family… and there is only 1 little one left… my sweet cousin will be our flower girl.

we can’t have a wagon going down a cathedral aisle.. I don’t think it would be fitting for our wedding .. I want to believe 6 kids would be cute .. but i just dont know ..

While I understand the urge to include everyone and do think kids are cute, I can totally see where you are coming from that it might just be too much. First of all, I think the potential for misbehavior increases when there is a group! Secondly, what is the statement being made? It is your wedding. Beyond just making them all feel included, is there a specific need to include them, like if you have one cousin you have to have them all or something? If not, I would probably go with my original plan of the flower girl and twin boys. It’s sort of like when you pick your bridal party — you’d love to include everyone you are close with but it’s not always realistic. I don’t think it should change just because they’re only kids.

That does sound like an awful lot…Maybe have the older kids be involved some other way ie hand out programs, water bottles, bubbles, rice etc

I agree w/ twalila…..have them had out programs or something like that. Can you bridesmaid take one kid each and walk down the aisle…that way a little one won’t get stage fright?

Honestly, I think that is way too many. You have enough to worry about without having to coordinate six kids.
