So my brother is dating this girl and she has a little girl and boy from a previous relationship and then they have my nephew who will be two at the wedding and also my ring bearer. I really want to include the other two in the wedding since they’re practically family but I have no idea what I want to do with them. She is 8 and he is 5. The girl is a little mature but he boy is well….a 5 year old boy to say the least. What are some duties I guess you could say that they can do so they are apart of the wedding?? Any suggestions??

They could carry signs (before the procession really begins) that say “please turn off your cellphones” or the ones that say “here comes the bride”. They coudl pass out candy at the reception or rice/flower petals/whatever at the ceremony (I did this at a wedding when I was about 6).

They could have “jobs”, hold signs, be a flower girl, ect. Or simply walk down the aisle before the ring bearer separetly or holding hands

Would you consider having two ring bearers and having the five year old walk down the aisle holding the hand of the two-year old? It will likely be difficult to have the two-year-old walk down by himself. The eight-year old could either be a flower girl or a junior bridesmaid. (My nine-year-old “niece” was a junior bridemaid.)

Make the elder two flower girl and ring bearer/page boy. I have two nephews and my best friend has a 5 year old boy and 2 year old girl – all four of them were in our wedding and it was adorable! They just walked down the aisle in pairs before the bridesmaids then went to parents; my elder nephew had the rings (he was nearly seven at that stage and very sensible!) and he gave them to the best man at the appropriate moment. The two year was fine walking with her brother but I don’t think she would have walked on her own. You may find the 8 year old is needed to walk the other two down the aisle anyway!
