Great question. I’m in kind of the same situation. Looking forward to some responses! Good luck!

Hmmm, could you make him a “junior” groomsman or “junior” usher?  Or maybe he would be a good greeter, especially if he is outgoing.

I’m in a similar situation, except our reception & ceremony are a leeeetle more kid friendly (day time, reception #2 is at Disneyland Hotel lawn).  We’re thinking of asking my 11 y/o nephew to be a greeter at our church ceremony & possibly perform a “set” at our cocktail hour – he’s a rather good ukulele player.  He’ll be backed up by FBIL, who plays a mean acoustic guitar.  If you do something similar, it will give him a rather “adult” responsibility (if he’s a mature 10 y/o) & he’ll become the talk of the reception (without overshadowing you). 

Good luck!

He could escort the maid of honor down the aisle, or the mother of the bride.

But i don’t think it would be bad for him to be the ring bearer, maybe if he didn’t have a ring pillow, but some other sort of ring holder….I don’t know what ur theme is, but for example, a shell for a beach wedding……then it would be a little more grown-up than a pillow

This might be assigning more responsibility than you were looking for, but I know some people have had kids do cute readings (ie from kids books).  Like something from “The Missing Piece”.  I’m sure one/some of the bees did this, I just can’t remember who!

Besides a Jr. Groomsmen, he can be a bell ringer – He walks down before you and says “The Bride is coming” – or he can walk down in the recessional after you two are pronounced husband and wife with a sign that says Just Married.
