I agree that waiting till a week before to let you know is ridiculous. It’s not brain surgery, they’re just walking.

But if you don’t care whether you have a ring bearer or flower girl or not then it shouldn’t matter right?

Maybe find a relatively inexpensive clothing option and if they don’t end up being in it, who cares. (Maybe something that they could wear again for holidays to the mom doesn’t mind shelling out money.

Get to the bottom of the reason why they’re iffy. Why couldn’t they handle it? behavior? money? desire?

Just let them know that you’ll plan to have them in the party, and that they’ll need to get their things ahead of time. there’s no reason why they wouldn’t be able to go to the ceremony and then head home with a babysitter or something afterwards. My older brother is doing that with his kids for my younger brother’s wedding in a few weeks. But the whole, “We’ll let you know a week before” thing isn’t going to work. They’re either in or they’re out.
