Need some advice. We would like to include my FH's cousins in our wedding. Their both girls around 4-7 years of age. Our venue doesn't allow confetti. So I was thinking of making one of them a ring bearer and the other to hold a here comes the bride sign. Has anyone else done this?

    Sounds like a great idea! Times have changed and weddings are sooooooo versitle now! My daughter is our flower girl, she will toss fake flower petals as she walks down the Isle, she is also holding the rings! We don't have a ring bearer

    Great idea! There aren't any "rules" when it comes to weddings, just do what you want and what makes you happy!

    For sure I think that's a great idea!

    I've been having a bit of trouble including all of the kids in our families (theres so many and I don't want some to feel left out) we're asking some to be ushers at the ceremony and also guard/man the guest book and card box during the cocktail hour!

    I think it is great and very sweet! There are no hard and fast rules for these types of things anymore.

    Before getting engaged my friend and I would talk about our future weddings ALL THE TIME. but when i got engaged, everything changed. feels like there are so many unwritten rules of do's and dont's. Before I would tell my friend some of the most bizarre wedding things I'd like to include, but not i find my self second guessing it.


    I say go for it! It's your wedding - write your own rule book!

    I was the ring bearer for my mom’s cousin’s wedding when I was like 6 - I was the only child in the family at the time.
    I don’t believe the ring bearer HAS to be a boy. Specially now where everyone does their own thing.
    I’m sure the girls will absolutely love the responsibility.

    That's a very cute idea! If you still want them to include flowers, my flower girl is just holding a bouquet because we have the same rules. Either way it will be super adorable.

    Why not? no one said your ring bearer has to be a boy.

    I think that’s a super cute idea! (Just make sure the 7 year old has the rings not the 4 year old lol!) Or if you like the more traditional route, you could also make them flower girls with boquets rather than flower petals? The benefit of young bridesmaids/flower is they’re always really cute regardless of what you choose to do!
