Welcome to Weddingbee! I like the idea of him being an usher. He’s definitely old enough to do that!

I had this same problem. Not with a nephew but with my fiance’s brother. There is a huge age gap and he is 12 as well. We are going to have him help with ushering for the ceremony. He was more than thrilled with the “responsibility” of helping people find their to a seat. And even though we really didn’t need him to do it he was excited because he’s getting to help. And even more excited just to go with his brother to get a tux and take pictures.

An usher is a great way to involve him. You could also have him be a candle lighter, pull a wagon full of flower girls or hand out bubbles/fans/programs. Or you could have a junior bridesmaid and junior groomsman if you wanted the 10 and 12 year olds to stand up with you guys.

My flower girl will be 2, “babies” are adorable and no one expects the same from them as an adult. We are luring ours down the aisle with her two favorite things in the world. She adores my Fiance and he will be holding a chocolate bar for her 🙂
