We’ve finally set a date and I’m busy working on getting things organized…until I hit a small issue. We’re having my friend’s son as our ring bearer, and our families are really close (they call us auntie and uncle), but there’s no relation. His sister is in the wedding as our flower girl, and since she’s my god daughter, she’s being listed as god daughter of the bride. Their mom is also in the wedding, and she’s being listed as friend of the couple. Any suggestions for the little guy? I dont just wanna list him as friend of the couple, but he’s not my god son, and he’s technically not my nephew. HELP!

Hm, that’s tough. Especially since his sister is in the wedding party, too. I would talk to the parents and see what they say, but I see two ways to handle it. 1) Ask if they would mind if you put that he’s your god son, since in practice you have that relationship with him anyway. They (or you) might be very particular about this term, so it might not work, but they could also look at it as just like you can never have too many aunts and uncles, you can never have too many godparents, and for the sake of everyones feelings, it’s fine. 2) How important is it to you to specifically mention that the flower girl is your god daughter? You could put both of the children without titles centered at the bottom of your program, something like this. That way, neither one has a title, they’re just the kids listed at the bottom.
