Question_mark Question:

Hi, how would you substitue the ring boy and flower girl? We are having a small destination wedding and we don't think any of our guests have young enough member for those parts. will it be incorrect if i walk down the isle with out them.




Yes, it's perfectly fine to skip the flowergirl and ringbearer if you don't have a natural 'fit' for them. Your best man and maid of honor can hold the rings for you (which they usually do anyway at weddings, while the ringbearer more safely has dummy rings attached to the ring pillow!)

You'll be just fine without child members of your bridal party!

If I can help with anything else, just let me know!
