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.
