    Don’t give the 8-month old another thought. Even the wagon is too risky. If that mom gets upset, she has too much time on her hands.

    The 5-yr-old boy… if you really don’t want a ring bearer, could he just walk down the aisle in suit and be called the “leader”? it’s a non-job job. I’m pretty sure my sister did that at her wedding so random cousins’ kids could be included without too much responsibility.

    Zenostar:  Have only the positions you want in your wedding.

    There was a similar post yesterday where the bride had a bridal party of 3, but her Mom was pressuring her to include all te second cousins. That would have made a bridal party of 13. If the groom matched the numbers- a wedding party of 26.

    One Bee told the OP that if she asked one second cousin she had to include them all. That is just rubbish. We do not need to protect our children from ever having hurt feelings. That’s part of life and part of growing up. It’s a teaching moment for parents.
