Phase out the wedding talk. Work on boundaries. You have three years…there’s no need to address this now. Focus on them when you’re with them, instead of yourself or your plans.

First, I wouldn’t ask them to be involved in any way until much closer to the date.  Like you said, a lot can change in three years, and you don’t want to be stuck including these girls in a certain role that you might regret as the day gets closer.

Second, I think having them as readers would be nice.  They could even read the same poem/Bible passage/etc. together and switch off reading every other verse or something.  When you say your Fiance isn’t interested in readings, do you mean he doesn’t want to look for them right now, or he doesn’t want anything read at the wedding?  If he just doesn’t want to look right now, I don’t blame him because your wedding is a long ways off.  As the date gets closer, you can decide on details like that.  You could also have the girls as guest book attendants.

For now, I would try to downplay the wedding talk as much as you can.  Once the inital excitement dies down, hopefully they will stop talking about it as much.

I agree with the other posts here. Try to downsize it or they may become more and more exited. Are you sure you dont want any reading done? Or your Fiance doesnt want to talk about it right now? Some of them are very cute and sweet, especially when read by children.
