    My friend got married and her nephew was the ring boy. He is a well behaved kid, but like most 3 year olds, he got bored. When the JP was doing his thing, the little boy yelled out, "Papa! Come here!" as he stood beside the bride.

    Papa got up, the boy grabbed his hand, and made him walk to smell the flowers that were off to the side of the guests. Papa missed 5 minutes of his daughters wedding lol but the photog got a great shot of the grandfather and grandson smelling the flowers.

    The little boy walked back to his spot beside the bride. By this time, the bride & groom had exchanged roses. Again during one of the JP's speeches, the little boy asked the bride (his aunt) if he could have the flower. He smelled it and looked at it for awhile, then started swinging it around, and eventually the head bent over lol.

    It's just pure innocence of a 3 year old little boy. He wasn't loud or talkative, but it sure made for some GREAT photo's and memories.

    Good Luck and instead of feeling embarrassed, try feeling proud :)

    Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

      I have five kids, so I know there's nothing like hoping YOUR child doesn't take away from the special moments of the bride and groom. It can be mortifying for the parent (been there!!!!) when your child is stealing the limelight from the bride! That being said, I've been way more worried about it than anyone in the room, and it does make for great pics later! Interestingly, I think I'll be less worried about their behavior during MY wedding that I was for anyone else's!

        I think so many people get nervous about it being perfect. What you have to try and understand is its perfect because your loved ones are there sharing it with you. What makes a great day is those little things that people can look back and smile at. If he does something you can look back and laugh. He is 3! They don't understand what the big deal is, its just another day for them.

        The last wedding I went to the brides nephew was 3. He climbed under all the isles and was running around. We all still look back and smile. It was adorable.

        I have a 3 year old who will be the flower girl and a 14 month old who is the ring bearer. To be honest I have NO idea what it will be like. My daughter is shy at times and may not make it down. My son just started walking and is clumsy and will need help. I never once thought it would be bad. I'm pretty laid back but I think you just have to relax a bit.

          I'd have to agree with the poster before me
