so Fiance and i are trying to figure out what to do with all the children we want in our wedding party. there is one girl and 4 boys
the girl (E), my cousin, is 2 now and will be 4 at the wedding
her oldest brother(R) is 5 and will be 7 at the wedding
their unborn younger brother(D) will be 2 1/2 at the wedding
and the other 2 are FI’s brothers
one is 6 (A) and will be 8 at the wedding
and the other is 8 (P) and will be 10 at the wedding
the obvious is the girl, as the flower girl, but what do i do with the 4 boys?
R has been a ring bearer before
A + P Fiance brothers both want to be in the wedding and we want to include them in the wedding but we want them to have the same “job” due to their jelousy issues
D is going to be very young so we dont know what to do with him, but we dont want to have R and E and not D

How about the two older boys hand out programs? I myself think 10 years old is a little old to be a ringbearer. The 2 1/2 year old can be the ring bearer. I had a 1 year old flower girl and 2 ring bearers, 1 year old and 4 years old and it couldn’t have gone any smoother. I imagine the 7 year old could be a ring bearer too.

Have your cuz and his younger brother in the party, I wouldn’t want to overfill it with kids, that’s my opinion. This way you get one from each side of the family. 2.5 is way too young to be in a wedding.

Let the little boys be ushers. They can seat people. It’ll be so cute.

@Atalanta I disagree….i don’t think 2 1/2 is too young at all. My flower girl and one of my ringbearers were both 1 years old and they both did a fantastic job.

I think handing out programs and ushering is a good fit for the 8 & 10 year olds. I would maybe include an adult usher or have the GMs usher as well so that there is an older party supervising them.
I think 2 1/2 for the ring bearer would work – maybe have the 7-year-old be a ring bearer too so he can help the littler one.
