@78h2o: I have two kids and my brother has two kids.

Speaking as a mother, I’d see it as unfair to have only the girls involved and not the boys.  At that age, would the kids really understand and NOT be jealous/envious?  HIGHLY doubtful.  It’s like saying “your daughters a cute but your sons are not”.

Again, that’s MY opinion.

Here’s what I’m doing:

I have two kids, a son (9) and daughter (5).  I want my nephews involved, too (two boys ages 8 & 5).  To keep the peace, we’re having my FI’s neice involved (age 3).  Total of 5 kids.

The two girls are going to be flower girls (mini bouquets for both).

My son will be ring bearer. 

My two nephews are going to “escort” the flower girls.

IF the one shy girl has an older sibling who IS NOT, he could escort his sister down the aisle.  Problem solved. ๐Ÿ™‚  If not, she might be okay with having an older boy walking her down the aisle, anyway.  

Just a thought and it would look cute in photos, too ๐Ÿ˜‰

i didnt have ring bearers but i did have 1 flower girl and 2 flower girl “escorts” my husband has 2 brothers 12 and 10 and his youngest sister is 7 so she was our flower girl.

Kate Middleton had a bunch of kids! i thought it was really neat.

We are doing  “Procession of Children”  we have over 60 kids attending!  

I asked that any parents who wanted to let children walk dress them in one of our wedding colors (or combo of) and I am giving them each a chalk board sign (using thrift store photo frames and painting them myself to match our colors)  and having them write one word that makes them think of love or marriage.  I will have them walk down the aisle before my ring bearer (2) and flower girls (2) and my son who will carry a Here Comes The Bride Sign.

I am going to have the frames placed on the floor infront of the Groomsmen & BM’s

I think walking the dog down is ADORABLE!  It might be a pain, but what cute pictures you will have!
