@leecy87:  Get her to help with the playlist?  Have her ring the church bell as you’re leaving?  Get her to help with reception set up/decoration?

Oh.  Durr.  Have her do a reading.

@leecy87:  When I was about that age my cousin had me and another neice about the same age be “general attendants”. We passed out programs, encouraged people to sign the guestbook, helped people find their table at the reception… We also helped put favors together before the wedding.

@MexiPino:  So, an usher, really.  Though it tends to be interpreted as a masculine word, so “attendant” is a good word to use.  A very good suggestion.  +1

I agree.  A reading would be nice.  A personal attendant, or guestbook/program assistant.  When I was that age, my uncle had my sister and I be the “cake servers” at his wedding.  We handed out cake to people as they came up for a slice, but I don’t know that anyone does that anymore.

I was once a ‘hostess’ in a wedding…I was young so I greeted people when they came in and gave them programs for the ceremony, at the reception I took care of the guestbook and passed out the favors.

FI sister is 16 and isn’t a BM and has a fear of public speaking so no go on being a reader, however she wanted to be involved. For our Catholic mass she is bringing the gifts to the altar, and for her to feel that this isnt just a made up job (lol) I have purchased her a bathrobe (like the BM) and “mimosa” glass so she can get ready with us. Hers will more than likely have just OJ in it but that way shes part of the girls =]

@leecy87:  Maybe do the guestbook, pass out programs?
