I need some ideas on where I can put a 10 year old boy in my wedding. We are not having a kid friendly wedding, FI wants his nephew there. Since we are not having children at the wedding, we need to involve him in the wedding party somewhere. Any ideas on what a 10 year old can do? I was going to make him a ring bearer, but I feel that might be to juvenile for a 10 year old. HELP!

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.

What would a Jr Groomsman do? Does he hang with the groomsmen?

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).

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.
