Teenage nieces

I need help.  I have 4 sisters and therefore a LOT of bridesmaids (about 10-12!).  I also have  three teenage nieces that I want to somehow include.   They are too old for Jr. bridesmaids and I can't possibly add any more bridesmaids.  Is there any other important role that I can have the them do for my wedding?  They are 15 (she could possibly still be a Jr.), 17 and 20.  Please help!!

    Can you cut any friends and mostly have family only???  That's what my fiancee and I are doing.  The family has to be there for pictures anyway so it works out nicely.

    Have them do readings, or have them and some of your other BMs walk in with the BP and then sit in the front row?

    You certainly are popular.  They can do readings or sing.  But don't make them program hander-outers or guest book attendants.  Remember, being a guest is also an honor - especially since they'll get to sit in the front row and wear a corsage.

    Edit - I just realized that you were asking about your nieces and not your sisters.  You don't need to have them sit in the front row or wear a corsage.  Being a guest is just fine.

    Oh dear God, please clarify this. Are you saying you originally asked friends to be in your wedding party and then you kicked them out in favor of family?

    Please tell me that's not what you're saying.

    I agree with the readings. Or, like others have mentioned, just let them sit in a prominent area with a pretty corsage. :)

    hahaha, no I totally agree... I feel like I am almost including them just because my sisters did... maybe your right, being a guest should be just as much of an honor!  Thanks for your honesty
