If you’re going to have programs, I think it might be cute to have "Junior Ushers" on either side of the entryway to your ceremony location to hand out the programs to the guests.  Not sure how old these boys are, if they are too young you might have a hard time keeping them in place!

I’m having all my little cousins (5 girls age 8-12) hand out cones filled with petals for guests to shower on us as we walk out of the church.   I think either boys or girls could this.  Programs are a great idea too, as I need to come up with a lot of jobs for all the kids in the family!

We do have flower girls, but they are little. So we are having some of the older kids be more like "helpers". One is a candlelighter (although I wouldn’t give this job to a very young child, a responsible nine-year-old might be able to handle it). Two others (six and seven year olds) are passing out bubbles after the ceremony. Another, older girl is passing out programs. We really wanted to include them however we could.

I attended a wedding where there was a tissue boy.  It was the cutest thing – he was 5 or 6, all dressed up and held a pretty box of kleenex as the guests entered the church.  Turns out he was the left over kid with no job, so they made that one up for him.  There were 2 ring bearers, 2 flower girls, and a Jr. BM as well.   I think that the 9 year old may be better suited as a junior bridesmaid – her dress could be similar or the same color and it would feel more grown up for her than "flower girl" although, it’s not very different.
