I would stick to your guns on this one. You had four important women in your life that you wanted to stand up for you, and your fiance picked four people. You’re not required to include your brothers as attendants — it would be nice, but it’s not always possible to include everyone that you love.

As far as the children, I definitely wouldn’t go there. You’re not close to these children, and flower girls/ring bearers/children in weddings in any way, shape or form are far more trouble than they’re worth in my opinion. I would have decided against it for my wedding if I had had any say in the matter!

Oh I know exactly what you are going through… I decided to not include my sisters in my bridal party. They are disappointed, and I however feel bad, but I only want my friends up there standing next to me. I really didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings, but my family thinks that I should put them in the wedding, but my mind is already set and made up. I guess I chose my friends over my family so to speak, and that is how it goes..

I personally think you should just stick with your decision, because honestly, it is YOUR wedding. YOU are the one that needs to be happy! Plain and simple.

I wouldn’t even go there with the cousins kids situation. As far as your brothers, I can’t imagine not having my brother & sisters standing with us when we get married. Our bridal party was built around our siblings. From the very start I knew my sisters would be bridesmaids & my brother & fi brother would be a gm. We added on from there. If you are close to your brothers I would talk to them about it.

I would be upset if I wasn’t in my siblings weddings. All four of our wedding dates are within a year &  half,  we are all in each others weddings & so are our SO.
