- Wedding: October 2010
I’m getting married on 10-10-10 and am a kindergarten teacher. I’m not having a flower girl or page boy. I thought it would be lovely to invite the children in my class to my ceremony (but not the reception) and have a few ideas on how to include them and make them feel special:
1) I’ve decided that they will stand side by side before the aisle – boys on one side, girls on the other, so I will walk between them before I get to the aisle. Then they will follow me sit on the aisle to watch the ceremony.
2) My florist could make little mini bouquets for the girls and buttonholes for the boys. Is this too much?
3) Considered getting them to do a butterfly release, but didn’t think they looked impressive at all when I looked at videos on youtube. Also, if one of the kids’ poor butterflies weren’t alive when the opened the box, there would certainly be tears!
4) Could get them to sing a song, maybe this is too cheesy?
5) Could keep it simple and just get them to throw rose petals for the kiss.
6) My fiance is very tall (6’6″) so I thought one of the kids could run out with a little stepping stool just before the kiss for me to stand on.
7) Could get them to hand ceremony programs to guests while the wait for me to arrive, but some of the kids are very shy so not sure about this idea.
Which ideas do you like?? Have any teachers done this before?? Do you have any ideas that would be a nice, meaningful way to include students?
