How about her being your ring bearer?

I really don’t think 9 is too old for a flower girl!!

Just pick an age appropriate dress, give her the choice of what she wants to carry and call it a day.

One random flower girl doesn’t really constrain wedding party and it sounds like she is important to you

I think if you aren’t having kids at the wedding it is hard to honour her. Sorry to be blunt, but the easiest way is by including her. I saw someone here call a 10 year old a flowermaid and though that was adorable!!!

I think that your love for her and her inclusion in the day will be an honor. Many people who get married and already have kids don’t give them a “formal” role, but the day is a happy occasion for both kids and adults.

I certainly don’t think 9 is too old for a flower girl. But you also don’t have to give her a title, just let her walk down the isle before you. She could carry a bouquet instead of throwing down petals if you want.

You could also skip the ceremony formality but have a special dance with her during the celebration. I think that could be really special to her especially if you were to take her to dancing lessons for a “date night” before  the wedding  

I think whatever you choose to do will be perfect and don’t worry about other people who are sour about kids not being invited- this child has a special place in your heart and it’s your day to celebrate with those closest to you.

I guess I don’t see the huge desire to have her there if no other children are allowed to come?

Set up a special day for just the two of you to celebrate. Honestly, at 9, I’d rather do that than sit through a wedding!!!
