My daughter will be just over 8 months by the time of the wedding. Not walking by any means, hasn’t even began crawling yet. (Thank goodness, lol) Anyway, I really want her to be a big part of our wedding, not just a on-looker. Anyone having/had their baby in their ceremony? Ideas?
My older brother will be walking her down the aisle, but the plan was/is to just have them be seated by my parents. Any better ideas?

My cousin’s daugther was about the same age at her wedding. They had planned on having her involved a bunch, but she was really fussy and ended up having to stay out of the church for pretty much the whole ceremony because she was crying.
So that might be something to think about.

Yeah, true. We have already assigned a friend to take her inside if she starts to cry or get fussy. (Our wedding is around her bedtime, lol) Hopefully it will go smoothly though. :/

Fussy babies are always a toss up when it comes down to ceremonies. I knew someone who had the Maid/Matron of Honor carry the baby down the aisle instead of a bouquet so that way her baby was there right next to her as her and her husband got married. Another idea (depends on the formality of your ceremony) is to have the bell ringer or ring bearer bring your daughter in a wagon and have her carry the pillow or help ring the bell

Do you think your officiant could work something into your vows about your daughter? That way your devotion to her is part of the commitment that you make to each other.

I think it would be cute if you just went and got her from your parents after you are pronounced husband and wife and kiss, and then the 3 of you go back down the aisle for the recessional. To me, that is as included as a baby can be (and only if she allows it/ is not fussy that day).
