      Getting married in 2 weeks

    I'd love some wedding party advice!
    My fiancé has 6 siblings all under the age of 14. We are having a small ish wedding and don't want to end up with nearly half the guests as part of the wedding party!

    We both have already chosen friends to be in the wedding party
    I have one brother who my fiancé and I are both close to. We would love him to be a groomsman but are worried that this will annoy my fiancé's family if his siblings are not included too

    Can anyone suggest ways to include his siblings and make them feel part of the wedding?
    Thanks :)

    Could you give them jobs such as handing out button holes or the order of services if you are having a religious wedding? Or get them involved before hand making invites or setting up bits for the big day. X

    To be honest, without meaning to sound harsh, I probably wouldn't do anything to try and include them. Its your day and I don't think you should feel like you should include people just for the sake of giving them something to do/to keep other people happy - them being there and celebrating with you is enough inclusion.

    I agree with Flossie .......unless of course you actually really want to include them in some way.
