@millielue:  I think that’s a super sweet idea, but like you’ve posted, that could be a bit confusing logistics-wise once they reach the alter.

Instead, how about having the kiddos be your ‘send off’ crew? You could provide them little flower petals to toss, bubbles to blow, streamers to shake, etc (whatever your venue allows) and have them either line the aisles when you two walk back down, or have their parents get them all lined up outside the church doors while you get into your car. Just have a cute little sign by your basket that’s holding the goodies, and then a note in the program or an announcement from the officient to signal that it’s time for the wee ones to help you guys out 🙂

It sounds cute, but might be really hard to know how the kids would react. If you have ever been to one of those church services where they ask all the kids to come up to the front (and they end up standing around, milling about, etc) you’ll  know what I mean. Is there going to be an age limit? Little kids can be unpredictable and as cute as this sounds, the logistics seem  little hard to figure out.

@millielue:  🙂 Maybe just to be safe (and keep distractions away during the ceremony) you can have the basket put out at the end of the ceremony by the ushers so the kiddos aren’t playing with them all ceremony long. But I’m glad you liked the idea, I hope you can make it work out for you!

I am getting kids involved by using an old tradition we have in Wales, where after the wedding service, the children come and give me gifts of iron horseshoes and wooden spoons which are considered to be good luck to the bride and groom.
