My nephew was 11 during my wedding, and we had he and my husband’s younger brother, 13 at the time, light candles before the ceremony, and then they sat in the family pews for the remainder of the ceremony. For the usher, they tend to sit during the ceremony, and then release the guests form their seats once the ceremony is over, unless you and your fiance plan on greeting the guests by letting the rows out.

I think 10 is a bit old to be a RB, but it’s your wedding, so do what you want! I went to a wedding once with three RBs, one of whom was 55 at the time, because he had always wanted to be a RB, and never got the chance to!

I would say 6 is too old. If you google image search ring bearer it’s all very young boys.

I think 10 is just fine. I never understood the trend for having really young kids as RB, especially if they can’t walk, but that’ sjust me.

Personally, I prefer older flower girls and ring bearers. I was a flower girl at 8, and didn’t feel too old at all. I think 10 is fine.

LOL my brother was 11, almost 12, and he was so old but my sister and I were also flower girls. Normally I’d say 10 and under.
