Having children participate in your special day can be a lot of fun, but finding the right role for them can also be tricky. Here are some ideas you can try.
Ring bearer- This on is obvious. Little boys have been playing this vital role for many, many years. If you want to spice it up a little, you can assign a child as “ring security.”
Flower girl- Another traditional role for children is the flower girl. If you don’t want flowers spread, have them hold a sign that says, “here comes the bride.”
Dance partner- Everyone knows the bride dances with her father and the groom dances with his mother, but a bride dancing with their son and a groom dancing with his daughter is just as sentimental.
Escort- Have your child walk you down the aisle. If you still want your father included, have him walk you halfway, and your child meets you in the middle.
Support- Big enough children can hold up your train.
Make a promise- Write a meaningful promise to your children and read them to them during the exchange of vows. If you would like, you can have them write vows of their own.
Mini servers- Who wouldn’t love a refreshment from a little one. You can have little ones pass out drinks (non-alcoholic) to guests. A mini bottle of water before the ceremony can be very helpful.
