    I was thinking of having my godson a ring bearer in our wedding. We don't have a flower girl, and I didnt really want one anyway. Would it be weird if I didn't have a flower girl, and just had him as the ring bear??

    ** Also, at the reception when they introduce everyone, who would he walk out with? All by his lil' self, I would feel bad

    i think it's fine, we're having a flower girl but no ring bearer... i have a cousin who will be 6 at the time of our wedding so she will be just the right age and she's incredibly well behaved like shes a little adult because shes an only child. we are hoping to keep kids out of the wedding equation otherwise... as for the reception, i cant help you because they dont do it the same way in mexico, only the bride and groom make an entrance so that's what we're doing.

      I think it's totally fine. He can walk out with a bridesmaid and groomsman. I think it would be very cute.

        I think it is fine too, I don't have a flower girl, either but FI still wants his nephew to be our ring bearer

          My first wedding, we had a flower girl (my god-daughter) and no ring bearer. She simply walked down the aisle alone.
          As for who he would walk with otherwise - ask him if he wants to go alone or with someone. He may want to go alone.

            Yeah you guys are right, thank you! I didn't even think that there will be no kids at the reception...so I'm wondering who will he have to play with, and I wouldn't want his grandma to have to leave if he wants to go home. I will have to think it over I guess. Unless someone can come pick him up at a certain time so no one has to cut their night early...

            Thank you guys for your advice!

              Hmm I think if I do have him, he can walk down the isle alone, but at the reception when they do the introduction, he can walk out with my MOH and Best Man.

                  I have 5 nephews and no nieces, so no flower girl for me! I'm planning on having the ring bearers escort my mom into the reception.

                    I also am not having a flower girl. My FI's two nephews will be the ring bearers though. I could always teach my puppy to be the flower girl. Too bad the hotel we are staying at doesn't allow pets!
