Honestly I think it will be too much.
I guess I have a problem with the idea that people have to be included in the bridal party to be considered important. I hate the division between mere guests and the bridal party. You will have enough to do without having to get all those kids to learn their roles.

sunnierdaysahead2 : You have a similar situation that I had…I included all 10 kids from our families in the wedding party on top of Maid/Matron of Honor, Bridesmaid or Best Man, 2 bridesmaids and 2 groomsmen…it worked and the kids all loved being included 🙂
ETA: we didn’t take the kids with us for photos because it was in a different place from the venue and I didn’t want to have to watch over so many kids… we took photos with the kids right after the ceremony and left to take photos with just our adult wedding party 🙂

I bet it’s going to be difficult to corral so many little ones for your wedding events and pictures. We briefly considered having flower girl and ring bearer as Darling Husband has 6 adorable nieces and nephews. I didn’t want to just pick two of them, so we went with none. I think it gave them more flexibility in what they did during the event, and we did have one very special picture with all of them. It was adorable!
