We’ve seen trends rise and fall over the years as we’ve facilitated over hundreds of weddings in the heart of the country. There is one specific trend that we’ve seen gain popularity at our small wedding chapels (and for good reason I might add). As the modern family has grown and evolved, so have traditional wedding roles. Today, couples are looking for ways to incorporate their kids in their wedding ceremony in more meaningful ways. And that is the kind of trend we can totally get behind!
To encourage this family focused trend, we’ve laid out 7 big jobs that are the perfect fit for your little helpers!
1. Guest Reading
What could be a better tribute than a passage read by your kid from a favorite book, or better yet, something they wrote straight from the heart.
Who better to walk you down the aisle than your mini me?
3. Sand Ceremony Participant
Let your kiddo get creative with you and make an art piece that can be displayed in your home forever.
4. Dance Partner
Share a dance to your special song with your little super star!
5. Best Man or Maid of Honor
Any parent knows, your kid is your real BFF. And it only makes sense to make your BFF your Best Man (or Maid of Honor).
6. Flower Fairy
Contrary to a flower girl, a flower fairy passes out single stem flowers to guests of honor as she comes down the aisle.
7. Toast Giver
Pass the mic to the little girl with the big voice and your guests are guaranteed to tear up!
