I have 2 young boys so they will both be my ring beaters and I have 2 young nieces and they’ll both be my flower girls although I’ve thought about the youngest one dropping the flowers while the older one holds a “Here comes the bride” sign.
Two flower girls, both about 3: FH's niece, a bridesmaid's daughter For ring bearers: FH's nephew (9), a bridesmaid's son (7), matron of honor's son (almost 3), and a groomsman's son (just born on Sun, so will be 14 months)
This is another component to a very long list of traditions we're nixing. Kids are unpredictable and expensive, plus, my very dear friend told me a few months ago what a pain in the behind it was for her 7 and 5 year old daughters to be in her brother in law's wedding. So with that information in mind, it's one less circus act for us to stress over. FH and I both have autoimmune diseases so life is better with less stress.

We have 2 flower girls and 1 rings bearer at the moment. I think we will change to 2 ringbearers though. The flower girls are my niece and a goddaughter we share. The ringbearer is his godson (my nephew, godson to be lol) and I was thinking of adding his nephew. He’s 3 turning 4 later this year. His godson is a bit older
