I had three, but they were adults. 4-5 may seem like a lot, but I feel like guests LOVE seeing the little kids walk down the aisle. I wouldn’t mind it as a guest. Maybe you can have them walk in pairs?

Thanks! 2 sets are sisters and then a single obviously. I just don't know how I'd leave any of them out. They are all adorable and I'm not one of those brides that needs all the attention....lol
That would be cute, they're all old enough and responsible at that point My FH has 4 nieces and 2 nephews. But right now we aren't inviting his brother, wife and two kids since drama. We were thinking about just having the eldest be ring bearer and flower girl
Do what makes you happy!! I personally love seeing a bunch of little kids run down the aisle together, it's so cute! 😂🥰 I've seen weddings with one or two flower girls and they're always so shy and awkwardly coming down the aisle alone with everyone staring. I've also seen it done in groups (nieces from one sibling go together first, then nieces from another sibling go together next, etc.). You could break up the group if you want less chaos, but it's really up to you!

My nephews will be 11 and 12 and as much as they love their Auntie might think Ring bearer is lame so I'm thinking ushers for them. I also have a 16 year old neice that I'll have read a Bible verse.
I didn't get to go, but my daughter was in a wedding where she was one of like, 12 'fairies' that walked down the aisle and threw petals down. The bride was a daycare provider and loved all of the kids they had at their in-home daycare.
I think if you have a ton of guests it works okay, but if it's pretty small and intimate all of those kids would like a little strange. However, I'm all for it honestly. They could damn near create a petal runner for you to walk down.

5 is a lot (especially in comparison to your total bridal party and also your guest count). But at least they’re older. However, no one is obligated to be in a wedding. So I’m not one for finding “roles“ just because. What will all 5 do?
Just Said Yes
I say have as many as you want i have 12 bridesmaids with 3 flower girls bc i have 3 grand daughters and i want them all in my wedding so some people would say thats alot and im not narrowing it down 😁
I think it would depend on your relationship to all of these young girls in question. If all 5 of them are your nieces, then it wouldn't be fair to separate and single out some while leaving out the others. If, say, 2 were your daughters and 3 were your nieces, then I'd just go with the 2 daughters. But if all 5 girls have the same relationship to you, then I'd definitely make them all flower girls because picking and choosing is bound to cause hurt feelings
First of all, it's YOUR wedding, you can have as many of anything that your heart desires!! My best friend had 33 total members of her wedding party (back in 2012). I thought that was ridiculous! But guess who still was a supportive friend, handled all of her maid of honor duties and made sure we had a happy bride? Yup ME! As anyone who loves you should, no complaints, no negative comments.
My niece was in a wedding recently (labor day). It looked like there were about 6 or 7 flowergirls (I only saw snippets of the part of the video she was in). It looked fine, it was still cute. The only thing is I actually wished the girls were spread out a little more. It seemed like maybe they were supposed to come out in 2s but then just jumbled up together so I would say work that part out and have them practice. I've definitely seen videos of more than 3 flowergirls coming out. I've never thought "well that's not cute"
On topics like this, whatever you like is tailored to you and yours and none of our opinions matter! Some people who will tell you "that's too many" don't have close family to choose from so they don't even understand where you are coming from lol
For me, I live in NY and though I have 6 nieces, I chose all the ones who live in NY with me who I see all the time, that was 3. My wedding was limited to 50 guests, definitely didn't want to fill it with kids.
