- Wedding: May 2012 - Salvage One, Chicago
So, I have a little cousin, the daughter of my 1st cousin (who is my godmother) who will be 12 yrs. and at the wedding. I was a jr. Bridesmaid in my Godmother’s wedding when I was 6yrs. I also have a 15yr old male cousin, too, who seems too old to be a ring bearer. My mom would love for me to continue the tradition of including these guys in our wedding, but for the life of me, I don’t see how. 12 is a little too old to be a flower girl and I don’t really want a jr. wedding party- we each have 5 people standing up, so adding more to the mix isn’t something we want to do.
They both live in Wisconsin, about 2 hours away from us. I see them twice a year, tops. I’d love to make them feel special and involved, but I can’t think of a good way to do it without sacrificing the way I see my wedding. Any thoughts?
