All-child wedding party?

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I have decided to use our 6 nieces and nephews as our wedding party...no adults.


The little darlings are: 3, 7, 7, 8, 9, and 9 years old.


The 3 year old will most likely just hand out bubbles with her mother, but the others are old enough to do the following:


We have decided that their only task is to walk down the aisle and off to the side where their parents will be seated to accept them.


They will sit with their parents and not stand beside us at the ceremony so that they do not get fidgety in the heat. The ceremony is 20 minutes long.


Everyone says they should be fine...just feed them, water them and make sure they have had naps. They don't typically nap, as they are in school all day.


We are just figuring out who will hold my flowers and our rings, as the best man and maid of honour usually do this...am I overlooking any other critical tasks?...hmmmm, or maybe we should have an adult best man and maid of honour in addition to the children?


Really, have I lost my mind in light of the vision of 6 children, dressed in white, nicely coming down the aisle?

OMG we did this. we had 2 adults, and the rest of the party (9 kids including the flowe girl, and we had 2 dogs as ring bearers!) was under 15, with the youngest BM being 4! if you have any specific Q's, just ask me, i can let you know what we did for each part.

Tell me everything! Did they behave? Was it too hot for them? Did you have criers and whiners and those whose sandals were too tight and whose flower petals weren't pink enough, those with tummy aches and those with stage fright? I think they will be fine...but in the back of my mind I am whipping up every conceiveable issue...I like to have plan Bs for everything...:)

that's really cute!!! could the mother of one of the kids hold the rings until they need it? i'm sure all of the girls would be willing to hold your bouquet.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
