All those kids…how to include them

See how nicely they can line up? These three are ready for a parade!

With 10 nieces and nephews, I knew I would have to have an all or nothing approach to the whole flower girl/ring bearer situation.

As I said previously, I originally chose the nothing approach.

Then I decided I could deal with 3 flower girls and that would be precious. But 7 ring bearers? I’ll go with 0 and spare some feelings.

Then I read this Ruffled blog. I have been totally in love with the idea of a Kid Parade.

Why have a DJ introduce us with some weird intro when we could have up to 50 kids with kazoos and tambourines and bubbles (led by the 10 nieces and nephews who will practice ahead of time) lead us in a sort of second line around the yard to our reception? Can you think of anything cuter?

I’m not sure I can.

      I guess you can be in the parade too if you really want to.

    if you were (just) an aunt w/ 10 nieces & nephews – so be it, continue w/ wedding plans … but you are such a ‘hands-on’ aunt – you and charles have been such an important part of their lives – bring on the kazoos, tambourines, and bubbles! this wedding will be (p.G.) a celebration (for many of us) of two families who have lost a father, made some major moves, and overcome illness … all with joyful hearts! woody & i (just) might bring our own kazoos!!! your idea is so blessedly inclusive & happy – especially as the reception is @ 579!
    this will be a wonderful celebration of love, and it’s struggles, challenges, and achievements. (we are grateful to have seen these beautiful children last week.)
