5 year olds definitely can’t handle the responsibility of handing out programs so I would nix that idea if I were you (and they wouldn’t see it as an equal position anyway).  Personally, I would go with JUST the 8year old.  Tell the parents in advance and have them help back you up and explain to the others that they are just too little.

I would include all of them and none of them are too little to be flowergirls/ringbearers.  We had two 3 year olds as our ringbearers and a 4 year old as our flowergirl and they all did a perfect job!

Unless her parents would be upset, I think you’re okay not giving the three year old a special duty.

Why not have the eight year old pull the twins down the aisle in a wagon or similar?  They can throw peatls from the back.

i read about a wedding once where they had all children in attendance walk up the aisle right before the bride. I think ringing bells. It sounded very sweet. The parents were just told ahead of time to have the kids in their Sunday best.

i have 2 nephews (8 & 12) who will be involved, but i don’t really feel any reason to pick titles. i labled them masters of ceremony on our website. i think it annoys some people, though. i may give all my cousins’ kids (4-7) some role once we get closer.
