Talk to his parents and get a feel–we wanted my brother to be a groomsman at that exact age (and he’s VERY intelligent and mature for his age), because we thought he’d think ring bearer was too babyish.  We didn’t think junior groomsman would sit well with him, either.  My mom caught wind and was FURIOUS, saying it wasn’t age-appropriate…so ring bearer he was…and he was not happy about it!

Ring bearer. A junior Grommsmen isn’t until he’s 13.

8 would be ring bearer age for sure.

Our best man’s son is 10.  We asked him if he wanted to be a ring bearer, if he said no, we would have asked if he wanted to be a junior groomsman.  However, he said yes and seems very excited~

He will be wearing the same attire as the groomsman so he pretty much IS one of them just gets the special role of bringing the rings.

My nephew will be about that age, and we’re asking him to be an usher.  We figured he was too old to be a ring bearer and too young to be a groomsman.
