Could he walk some of the ladies to their seats?

Easy.  Make him an official usher and he’ll be with the adult men.  He will probably love it because he’ll start to feel that he’s becoming a man rather than stuck with the womenfolk.  He will certainly be less likely to through a tantrum in such a situation.

The guests will like it because they will secretly think “Isn’t he sweet”.

It’s also slightly more grown-up than what his younger brother is doing.  He’ll like that too.

Will you be having programs?  My nephew who’s that age will be handing programs to the guests.

He could announce that you are coming before you walk down the aisle.

He could put out place names on the tables. He could open the car door when you arrive at the church/venue/reception door. He could be in charge of the confetti and the throwing of confetti.  He could present you and your mom and and your mother-in-law with flowers.  He could carry the pen to sign the register. 

You could borrow something from him. (Traditionally the bride has something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.)

He could be in charge of flowers to put in buttonholes.  He could carry the notes for the speeches to be made at the reception.  He could read out the telegrams/cards from people who couldn’t attend the wedding, he could be the one of the official decorators of the going-away car (specialising in tying tin cans to the bumper, perhaps.)  He could carry the official umbrella in case it rains or a parasol in case of too much sun.  He could serve some of the champagne at the reception (with a little help from an adult).  He could play a musical instrument.  He could sing a song.  He could dance with you (after the father/daughter and husband/wife dances).  He could bring the rings to his younger brother or you could have each brother carry a single ring. 

You could bring a gong to signal that it’s time for the speeches and then have your nephew hit the gong at the relevant time.

You just need to think outside the box and come up with something that is fun for him and fun for you.
