I think a Ring Bearer and a Flower girl are great to have in a wedding!  Though I agree with not using the traditional “throwing the petals” or the “pillow”.  My ring bearer will be holding a lego platform with a lego bride and groom on it.  He LOVES legos so I figured this would be something he would actually “want” to carry.  As for my flower girl she will have a baton with the ribbon on the end so she can twirl it down the isle.  This will help with their shyness, if they even have it.

YEP!  We had one and since we weren’t allowed to throw petals or anything she was just there for cuteness factor.  She wasn’t even close family – daughter of a cousin so I wouldn’t push to have one if not necessary!

@CupCakeMeg: I love that idea… I might just steal it from you for our two flowers girls.

@msjujubeans: love those, where did you get them from?

We have 2 fg, one will be 4 and the other one 2, our ring bearer will be 2 as well. So the oldest one will be there to guide the little ones down the isle. I can’t wait to see them.

I wouldn’t call them a waste of time. Are they necessary? Nope but they sure are adorable Smile

I’m gonna have a total of four kids.  A 9 year old ring bearer (complete with pillow), A 5 year old flower girl who will have a bouquet of flowers, a 4 year old flower girl with a bouquet of flowers (provided she doesn’t refuse to walk down the aisle…), a 8 year old “escort” for the 4 year old, and a 5 year old “escort” for the 5 year old flower girl

So, in total:

9 year old ring bearer (our son)

5 and 4 year old flower girls (the 5 year old is our daughter, the 4 year old a niece/daughter of my FI’s youngest sister)

8 and 5 year old escorts for the flower girls (both boys, obviously) (my nephews/brother’s kids)

@msjujubeans:

ooh. OK.

My nieces and nephews just walked down! Our goddaughter/niece was not walking yet so grandma carried her down. Her sister was not up to walking down at that moment so grandpa carried her.

My niece and my 2 nephews (carrying ring bowls) walked down the aisle together and it was super cute!

By introduction time the other Flower Girl was feeling up to it so the two younger RB & Flower Girl came out together as partners and the two older ones came out together before the rest of the bridal party came out.

Super cute and they enjoyed their job and took it very seriously! 😀

We put dummy rings in the ring bowls and my nephew -so cute- during the ceremony when it was ring time got up to give my husband the rings and he realized that the best man actually had the real rings. He just sat back down smiling. I felt so bad that we didn’t trust him enough with the real rings bc he was on top of it!!!

@msjujubeans: I think we got the dress on amazon. Her mom picked it out, I loved it too!

No way! I’m psyched to have our flower girl (and ring bearer). They’re family friends, and totally adorable, and are a big part of our lives. We just went shopping with them yesterday for the dress and for the rb to get measured for his tux (so much adorableness!!) I got them books about what it’s like, and they ask great questions (yesterday, fg asked, of her own accord “will I carry flowers down the aisle, or will I throw petals). I’m 100% confident that they’ll do an amazing job, but even if they get scared or walk too fast, or she runs out of petals, I think that’s equally adorable! In fact, I’ve already told the photographer that they’re awesome and I want tons of pics of them. That said, they are 5 and 7, so they’re on the older end of the specturm. I can imagine using a 3 year-old or younger would be stressful 🙂

@msjujubeans: heh… you don’t know the niece!  that girl, can throw tantrums like never seen before!  She’s also on the shy side towards strangers (or so I’ve been told…).  

I’m going total bridezilla if she doesn’t want to walk with my nephew, though.  NO ONE is walking with the kids, my Fiance even agrees with that.  If they don’t walk together, they don’t walk at all, lol.  I’m hoping she does okay, but who knows?  

btw, those wands? PRECIOUS!!!!!!  LOVE ’em!!!!
