My ring bearer is 4, and the flower girl will be 11 months.  We are having the ring bearer pull a wagon with her in it! The same flower girl was in her mom’s wedding in July, at 7 months old, and they had a good friend carry her down the aisle, and I (MOH) held her during the ceremony.

I had flower girls that were 6 and 8 and a ring barrer that was 4.  Even at 4 it was hard to get any pictures, etc with him and have him walk down the isle.  I had many family members who were younger and originally i thought it would be super cute with the little ones but then went to a few different weddings where they were crying, wouldnt walk down the isle, etc and just thought it would be too uncertain with young ones 🙂

unicornsarereal:  I attended a wedding with 2 year olds as the flower girl and ring bearer. They were suuuper adorable but visibly scared to be up in front of so many people (100+), had to be slowly coaxed down the aisle and the poor flower girl had a meltdown during the ceremony. The older kids will probably be a little better behaved (or at least more predictable) than the very little ones.

I don’t know first-hand, but I have heard the wagon idea is bad. Very little kids can fall out, trying to get up and out. The wagon can bang into pews, legs, etc. Or overturn. Risky.

Older kids are a better idea.

Tiny bridal party members are cute for about 5 minutes. Photo sessions turn into hell, plus what the prior posters have said. Our next door neighbor spent a half hour trying to get her 3 year old nephew into a tuxedo, for his aunt’s wedding. Everyone was traumatized.

My flower girsl were 7 and 8 and extremely well behaved. I wouldn’t have wanted it it any other way; there’s enough other things, to worry about.

I Went to a wedding where the couples niece and nephew were both about 18 months and I guess they were used as a flower girl and ring bearer as they were both in formal wear and were carried down by their mother and grandmother at the start of the procession but I really didn’t see the ppint of they are not old enough to be able to fulfill the roles in this case it happened due to one of the mothers throwing a hissy for as her little angel wasn’t included in the ceremony. You do not have to have a flower girl or ring bearer if you don’t have anyone in your life able to do it

unicornsarereal:  Our ring bearer will turn 3 a week after our wedding and our flower girl (who we are already worried about due to her being an EXTREME daddy’s girl who literally cries anytime she can’t see her father) will be about 2 and a half.

The responses on this thread are not comforting lol.

Our ring bearer will be 6 and he’s so excited to be included. Our flower girl is my niece who is barely 4. She’s excited but I’m a little worried about her – she will be sweet and cute no matter what, but she can be a little turkey sometimes. We’ve been having little talks so she understands her “job” and her mom has been talking to her too. I’d be really worried with an even younger one. But I guess it depends on the specific child.
