My fiance and I are a large-ish (200 people including +1’s) backyard wedding. On his side, he’s having 5 groomsmen. I’m having 3-4 bridesmaids (one is still unsure if she will be able to make it). The thing is, his niece really wants to be in the wedding..I also used to be close to my own niece and would like her in the wedding as well. In a couple years they’ll be 12 and 8, respectively. We already have our flower girl and I don’t want junior bridesmaids either. So I turned to the internet and found this;
Except it would say ‘Uncle Justin, here cones your bride!’ And although in this picture they have baskets, the flower girl would be in front of or behind them.
I saw this one too and thought it would be cute;Again, with the flower girl. But the flower girl is going to be almost 3 by the time of our wedding so I thought about having something like this one…
The bottom one..So his niece could hold ‘here comes’ and my niece could hold ‘the bride’ (though my boards would be more pretty) and the flower girl could be in between them.
Then when they get to the front they’d put the boards down and stand with the adults for the ceremony (<30 minutes) or we’d have seats set up for them. Either way.
What do you guys think, would that be cute or not? I think it would look ok but I want opinions.

My “flower girl”, my niece carried a here comes the bride sign. She was the hit of the wedding.
My only hesitation is the 12 year old. That seems a bit old for something that “young”

@marinesfiance: I had 2 nephews one 7 and the other 10 and they carried signs…..One had here comes the bride and the other had last chance to run…..everyone thought it was cute!
Here is my adorable nephew and his sign!

@Glasgowbound: Like I said, we already have our flower girl so neither my niece nor his could be it, regardless of the age. And I felt the same way, hence the boards. The flower girl wouldn’t be carrying one, there would be three girls walking down.

@weddingbound: Oh, that is adorable! And funny, lol. You had a flower girl too, I assume?

It’s super cute, but I’d send an 8 year old back to sit with her parents rather than trust her to stand or sit quietly for a half hour ceremony.
Also, 3 year olds can get stage fright, so she might need somebody older to be her minder.

@marinesfiance: you can have more than one flower girl, it’s your wedding, you can do what you want 🙂
I would ask the 12 year old if it’s something she’d like to do. I work with that age group, and many of them would not be interested – seeing themselves as too old for it. For me personally, 12 is too old, i’d have her as a bridesmaid. But it’s your wedding, do whatever makes you happy

@marinesfiance: No we have no little girls in the family just 2 boys so we just had them carry their signs. I wish I would have had a flower girl….I think you should go for it! Everyone will think its cute!

@marinesfiance: i think its a super cute idea.
My aunt made a sign for my Ring Bearer that read “Uncle David, here comes your bride”

@Glasgowbound: That’s what my fiance said, but I am completely against having a junior bridesmaid, unfortunately :/ and you would think so, but she actually requested to be the flower girl. I was like uhh..no. Lol.
@weddingbound: We just might 🙂 and we’re exactly opposite, our family and friends can’t stop having girls, lol. Luckily my fiance has a groomsman coming from Wisconsin for the wedding, so we’re gonna use his son (FI’s godson) as the ring bearer.

You acn have more than one flower girl. It’s allowed.
I’m not really sure why you’re anti-junior bridesmaid? She wouldn’t necessarily need to wear a mini version of the bridesmaid dress. She could wear something closer to the flower girl style.
You said she wants to be a flower girl… But she’s 10 now, right? Based on the date given, your wedding isn’t for a few years. If that’s the case, she could feel completely different about it by that time. from 10 to 12 I changed from elementary to middle school, and that’s a big jump.
