Hi, I have three from a previous marraige as well, but older .Our weddng is the beginning of August. I am planning on having my D, 10, junior Bridesmaid or Best Man. The boys, 15 and 19, as ushers. The girls should be flower girls and your son the ring bearer. They can all walk down together or why not each separately that way they each have their own spotlight?

congrats 🙂 i agree and also think they should each walk in on their own.  however, depending on the kid, the little one may have a little trouble with this.  if you think that will be a problem, i would actually have your younger two walk together. your 6th grader should be fine by herself  (i have a 6th grader too and he really likes the “i’m grown up” kind of thing) as a junior Bridesmaid or Best Man or just daughter of the bride (who needs so many titles?)

i’ve never been married but have two children.  that’s what i would do.

We have 7 kids. Three of the boys will walk one by one and the other 2 will pull the aisle runner. The girls will then walk together so the littlest one can toss petals, she insists but I don’t love the idea. She wins of course! lol Then I’ll walk alone.

Hi.  I too have 3 kids from my previous marriage, similar ages as yours but my son is 12 and my girls are 8 and 9.  I am having my son walk in with my older daughter as a usher and junior bm.  My other daughter will be walking with my neices.  It is your day and I have asked my kids if they wanted to participate.  They love thier future stepdad, so it was a no brainer, but they also love the feeling of big a a part of it.  I also made up programs with their names on it.  Something they can keep as a memento

Are they going to do anything while walking? Are you also having a flower girl and ring bearer? If not, your son can be the ring bearer and the two girls can be flower girls. Or the older one could have a mini bouquet and the younger could scatter flower petals. She’s old enough she should be able to do this and walk (really young flower girls are cute but often don’t scatter well!)
