I had 2 ring bearers and 1 flower girl.  We gave each ring bearer a pillow so they were each carrying 1 ring (hey – 2 rings, 2 ringbearers – works out perfectly).  I was all for giving the 3-year-old ring bearers the real rings until I saw the boys flipping, dropping, having pillow fights, etc with the pillows during rehearsal.  They got fake rings after that and the Best Man kept the real ones.  So I think – if I were you – I’d go a similar route for your ring bearers.

I’d also have both girls walk down together and drop petals.  A 2.5 year old will definitly need a little guidance in ther process so a slightly older “helper” wouldn’t be a bad thing.

im having 4 flowergirls and 2 ringbearers.

the ring bearers will walk side by side ahead of the wedding party, with boxes instead of pillows, the flower girls will walk after the wedding party, right before me, 2 abreast all with baskets throwing petals.

ditto PP, have both girls walk together 2.5 is young to handle walking alone and throwing petals. you can have them share a big basket, so theyre both holding it, and throwing petals with their free hand. that will help the older girl nudge the younger one along.

Multiple flower girls are quite common in Europe. I don’t see anything wrong with both of them throwing flowers. I’m having 3 Flower Girl and 3Ring Bearer.

We had 2 Flower Girl, 2 escorts and a Ring Bearer.  Two of the boys ended up switching at the last minute because one little boy didn’t want to walk with the Flower Girl.  It was no biggie.  But at four years old he was shy about walking himself, so I think a 2.5 year old would need a little help too!
