What role will your child/ren be playing in your wedding? (PIP)

I have a 2 yr old and I would like for him to be ring bearer, but he is so shy and I know he's gonna be a problem lol. Once he sees all the people he's either gonna run my way, freeze, refuse to do anything or whine and cry. What should I do? I was thinking of having someone that he's comfortable with escort him down the aisle but I don't know. Please share what your plans are if your facing this problem or what you have seen done at other weddings. Thanks in advance!

Here's a recent pic of me n my lil guy

Look how shy he is lol

  • My 2yr old will be our flower girl. Im sure her "Dadoo" will have to step in the aisle so she can run to him...


    But for my friends wedding I was MOH so I just walked down with the ring bearer and flower girl. It was too cute.

    Thanks ladies! I never thought of the FG and RB walking down the aisle together, maybe because she doesn't like my son, but he loves her lol. FG is a year older and she is one of my BM's daughter she is gonna be to busy putting on a show of her own to be worried about my son. He probably won't want to walk with MOH either. He probably would walk with the last groomsmen, his Uncle, he goes to him fine.
    Kittybutton your daughter is beautiful!

  • They are too cute!

    I have a 5 y/o sold who will be 2 weeks shy of turning 6 and a 22 month old daughter who will be 2 by the wedding in November. MY son will be the broom carrier and my daughter will be 1 of 3 FG. She and my Goddaughter who will be 4 will carry pomanders and the older FG will toss petals...only a few because they will already be placed along the sides of the aisel.

    </div><div>First of all, he is SOOOOOOOO cute!!! </div><div>I bolded this part of your post because my son and stepdaughter will be Junior Groomsman and Junior Bridesmaid (they're both 10)... she thinks he's gross because he's a boy and he's just happy go lucky. I guess that's just how it goes. They're not going to like it, but they're walking down together. And fixin' their faces!!

  • OK...that baby boy is precious! My youngest son is/was the same way.
    My young MEN, ages 14 (15 by the wedding date) and 17 will be ushers and will be holding the broom when FI and I jump over it.
    So if ya'll see me kissing some other men in my wedding pics just know they aren't grown...lol (yes actually had that happen on Facebook someone didn't know my son was my son! lol)....
  • My older son IS the "best man" lil one is a grooms man
