My first post ever on these forums was about what my nephew could do in the wedding. I had mentioned that my nephew said he didn't think he'd be comfortable to go down the aisle or read in front of everyone (he is 7). Everyone told me he doesn't need a job and I came to see the light that he would probably enjoy getting just a boutonniere and spending the day there.
NOW, my nephew is asking me what he can do for the wedding and he is excited. I would love to include him, especially now that I know he is wanting to do it. What can be something simple that isn't a chore or a "job" that doesn't honor our relationship. I thought about letting him pass out programs or checking on people (Does the pianist need water? Is FI ready?). He isn't so shy that he won't talk to people or strangers, I just know that he didn't want to walk down the aisle or speak to a large group. Hope that makes sense. It's being watched by everyone he doesn't like, not talking to people.
I know the best thing to do is just ask what he would like to do, but I want to have a few things for him to choose from. If he doesn't like anything on the list, no, I don't intend to force him to do anything. Any ideas? Something someone in your family wanted to do for you?
I reiterate, I won't force him to do anything and I DO want him to be involved as long as he does. It won't bother me if he changes his mind at the last minute or anything.
