I had a wedding with 45 guests and it was pretty much like a traditional wedding just on the smaller side. I had a Maid/Matron of Honor and a flower girl.

I’d have them in the traditional roles. All they have to do is wear what you pick out and walk down the aisle and stand by you guys. Call them junior bridesmaids and junior groomsmen?

My 11 year old brother, 13 year old sister, and 16 year old brother were all in my wedding. I dressed them to match the rest of the wedding party and they stood up at the alter with my husband and I. They participated in all wedding pictures. They didn’t participate in speeches and when I asked them if they wanted to sit at the wedding party table, they declined. 

I think whatever you choose will be just fine!

I think you need to decide if they are going to have traditional roles and full roles ie groomsmen and bridesmaid or if they will be junior groomsmen or junior bridesmaid.  I suppose the youngest while a little old by some standards coud be flower girl and ring bearer.  If you don’t want them in the wedding party or as junior wedding party member they could carry the family candles, light candles, read a scripture or poem, if they have a talent play the piano, sing or something.    It is so kind of  you to be so sensitive to the feelings of others on your special day – you deserve some good karma.
