Just a thought, he could be an usher. Hand out programs (if you’re having them) and show people to their seats. It would give him a roll, and a little responsibility. If that won’t work, you could ask him to be the groom’s “right hand man” for the day. help get ready, get him food and drinks, kinda like a valet. IDK…just some thoughts.

@LilMrsChamp: I was just going to suggest Usher… My FI’s younger brother is right around that age and we are having him usher with the help of some of the older boys. He was a program hander in his sister’s wedding a few years ago and wasn’t thrilled, so he was glad to get a more mature role. Plus he’s excited to be able to wear a suit!

i dont know if its true that readers have to be catholic – all mine were, but they never asked me if they were or not….i would find out about that because reading would be a great place for him!

@smileyd: These are all great ideas! When I was 11 or 12 I was a greeter and passed out bubbles for a wedding and loved it. Those are all ways to let an older kid feel involved and give him a job to keep him busy. We are probably going to make FI’s 11-year old nephew an usher/greeter.
