We were the same as you.  Had his niece as a flowergirl and decided not to have either of his nephews be a ringbearer because they were a little older (9 and 12) and also I didn’t feel as close to them (we babysat his nieces all the time, but never the nephews).  I also didn’t want a ton of kids in the wedding, so I kept things simpler.  No one noticed.  At least no one said anything to me about it so I don’t think it is a big deal.

I don’t think it’s weird, we are having a RB and no FG.  The only reason we are even having a RB is he is the only nephew and my brother just assumed he would be it and bought him alittle suit and has had him practicing.  He looks so cute in his little suit and has been practicing, how could I break his little heart.  So, now we have a RB.

We’re having a flower girl (maybe she’s more of a junior bridesmaid–she’s 10) but no ring bearer since we’re not close to any little boys. I don’t think it matters.

My 4 year old cousin is our FG and we have no RB. I dont think it’s a big deal at all.

I’m with the others, we are having a Jnr Bridesmaid (11) and a flowergirl (2.5) because they are my two closest friends’ daughters and I’ve had a lot to do with them. Same issues with ring bearers so decided not to have any – think that is the best decision in your case (rather than playing favourites – that is guaranteed to get someones’ feelings hurt)
