So I am guessing there’s no way to somehow include both? What is the grandparent idea?

Just ask him if he’s already brought it up to her and go from there. Explain the grandparents idea. Maybe she heard about it and doesn’t even want to do it. If she’s really excited then maybe you can incorporate both her and your grandparents? I would just talk to him about it. But remember it’s your wedding so if you’re really set on a certain idea just talk to them and I’m sure it will be fine. Good luck!

I am super curious to hear what the grandparents idea is!!

She can do something else. I’m sure your uncle will understand you wanting to do something else, his daughter being a flowergirl was not set in stone

I can’t imagine he hasn’t told her, especially since he’s now certain of attending.  You seriously want to kick a 7 year old out of the wedding?  That’s lower than low. 

If you do, YOU need to be the one to tell her, and not via email, either.  Phone call at minimum, in person would be best.  Don’t blame it on your grandparents idea (whatever that is, why can’t you do it in addition to a flower girl??).  Blame it on you changing your mind.

I don’t understand why you can’t have both the grandparents and the little girl walk down the aisle?

I think I know what you’re talking about regarding the grandparents being flower girls/ring bearers. I’ve seen it a few times in the last year.

Could the grandmas and your cousin walk together as flower girls? I feel like that would be incredibly adorable.

You already asked her to be a flower girl.  You can’t unask.

And as some PP have asked, why can’t you have both?

I agree, you have already asked her so you can’t unask.  Just do both.

Telling us what the grandparent idea is would give everyone a better idea of how you could get around it. Surely you could do both?

It’s really not a good idea to change your mind now. Hopefully you can do both.
