maxed out bridal party

hello long island brides- me and my fh are starting to think about our bridal party. we both each have 5 attendants and one flower girl. i'm an only child but his brother and sister are both on the list. his god daughter (his niece) is our flower girl. the only problem is, due to financial reasons we cannot have his two other nieces (both will be 17 at the time of our wedding) and his newphew (will be 14 at the time) be in our bridal party. we do want them to be involved in our day of, my only questions is how? please any suggestions are welcome! thanks girls

    Is it because you won't be able to afford to get them a gift? The only other things I can think of are Jr. BM or passing out programs/favors/send-offs or doing a reading. HTH!

    They can hand out your programs before the ceremony and your bubble/rice/whatever as guests leave the church.

    Just ask them how they'd feel about it, if they'd be comfortable doing the readings. If not, at least you asked and tried to include them and I'm sure you could find them something else to do!
