I've got a lot of younger cousins so therefore a lot of options lol. I recently went to a wedding where a kid made it halfway then screamed and cried and ran back down the aisle! wanting to avoid that. 3-8 sounds like a good range
Depends on the kid, really! I was a flower girl in my dad’s wedding when I was 9 or 10 because I really wanted to be 😂 they weren’t going to have one at all (was a super small informal wedding) but I begged my stepmom into it hahaha
It’s honestly whoever you can source! We are having our grandmothers be “flower girls” because their personalities fit the role. It’s an honor you can give family members; age isn’t the only thing I would factor in.
I was the flower girl for my dads second (current) marriage and I had just turned 5. My niblings are going to be my ring bearer and flower girls. Nephew will almost be 6 and my nieces will be about 2 1/2 years and 3 months old. The older two of the three will be following their momma down the aisle so I think they’ll be good.
Children under 10 are ideally the right age to be flower girls and ring bearers. However, if you or your fiance has a younger relative you may still want to incorporate them into your ceremony. Consider children 10-14 to be a junior Bridesmaids or other boys and girls called trainbearers or pages can walk behind the bride carrying the train of her dress as she walks down the isle.
So I'm planning to have all my neices and nephews in my wedding ( some are my fh brother's kids and some are his stepbrother's kids)
Here will their ages for my summer 2021 wedding:
Flowergirl (7) and ring bearer (5) Flower girl with sign (8) and ring bearer with sign (6) Flowergirl/junior bm (11- I of course want to include her and think she would do great with the two year old,whether she walks or carries him) and final ring bearer with a sign (2) Not sure which signs we want to do but some ideas
