Ok so my Little girl is 6 years old she will have just turned 7 by the time that we get married in July …… She says she wants to bring the rings… which I am ok with but I just want some sort of creative ideas other than perhaps her marching the asile down with a ring bearer pillow.
We are having a fairly Small wedding….
Also We had decided before that we did not really want a Bridal party…. I really dont like the idea of anyone standing up there with us… and also …. I have a couple of friends but only one and my sister that I am close with… so how would I pick But sometimes I wonder if perhaps I dont need a Maid of Honor. I was thinking perhaps my sister. I just got to thinking… who will take my bouquet if I have no wedding party? What will I do with it and such?

Do you have a favourite toy that you passed down to your daughter (like a bunny maybe) that you could tie the rings to in a ribbon around the neck? That’d be an adorable alternative!
Maybe you can pass your bouquet to your mum once you’ve walked down the aisle? Or another member of your family who’s sitting in front? What about giving it to your daughter as she takes her seat? Then afterwards you can have her stand up to walk out behind you and receive your bouquet then.

have you talked to your sister about it? I know my sister was really honored when I asked her and would have been hurt to have not been included. She loves her maid of honor job.

I like that idea littlemissmoo…. the only toy i passed down though i am not sure i would want it in my wedding LOL its a little old and tattered and ugly.
See that is where my wedding get complicated … FH wants to plan a wedding for July 24 2010… has even booked our honeymoon… But i still have no ring :(… SO until I get officially engaged I do not want to tell anyone.
I really dont know if it would matter to her to be in the wedding or not she got marred in FEB and I wasnt in her wedding they didnt have a bridal party.
We are having a small wedding on a limited budget and that is one of the main reasons we didnt want a wedding party that and how do you pick one or two people over others and …. FH really doesnt have any close friends… that are guys anyways that he could have in the wedding….
I do wonder soemtimes though if we dont need someone to seat people and if we dont need need a person of two in the wedding party just to mainly help us out

You can ask people for their help and acknowledge them publicly or in the program without giving them official roles…and maybe you could hand your bouquet to your daughter? Is she a careful person? I wasn’t at 7, but many other kids were.
I don’t know how classy/lighthearted/formal/casual your wedding is, but you could have your daughter wear a costume and come down the aisle! It would be adorable. Little Red Riding Hood, the Ring Fairy, a Ring Wraith (if she’s a tomboy)…
A ring corsage is a more formal and elegant idea — you make her a wrist corsage and tie the rings to it. Then she has her hands free and looks like she has a mini bouquet of her own.
