Is anyone including children in their wedding? My little girl will be 2 and my son will be almost 7. So I would like them to feel included and be flower girl and ring bearer. But they're cousins and the same age as them should I include them too? There's 5 months between the eldest and 3 weeks between the youngest. I don't want them to feel left out.

We have 5 kids between us and they are all being involved in the wedding and my niece will also be a flower girl

My two children were in the wedding party, but we left out the cousins as it's a lot of expense, either for you or their parents. It depends on how close you are, and your budget, but I think you could spend it more wisely than on more single-wear clothing! X

We've got 2 ushers, 3 page boys, 2 flower girls and now 2 teeny best men as they will be 7 and 8 months old. My 7 yo brother is also my ring bearer

For me personally children make family events even more special so wouldnt have it any other way xxxxxx

I'm only having children! My son will be 2 so he'll be our ring bearer. My 3 nieces 8, 6 and 4 will be my bridesmaids along with my partners cousins (he's very close to) aged 9 and 7. Think it just depends what you want and how close you are to the children

Hello I specialise in keepsake bouquets and have created a small flower girl wands before. They can be used for the flower girl or to help introduce other little members of the family to the wedding to have them walk the aisle with it to make them feel more involved. Please feel free to take a look at my page for photos and more information. You can find me at or my website on

It's your wedding day don't let anyone else's feelings bother you. If they're not happy then they can stay away. I've realised since getting engaged that when it comes to the wedding I'm having to think about what I want, otherwise the wedding would get out of control and too expensive. Just because people are in your life does not give them an automatic right to be part of your wedding day.

Our daughter who will be 3 when we get married is our flower girl and ring bearer. We both have nieces and nephews both sides of family so to prevent arguments we arent having any more in the wedding party.
At the end of the day its your wedding and its not your job to keep everyone else happy. They should be happy to be included whether it be as a guest or as part of the bridal party. X
