Preparations for your wedding are progressing rapidly, and you are now wondering about the procession . Multiple questions are swirling around in your head: how many children to choose? What outfits.
Wedding ceremony: how to constitute your procession of children?
First of all, assume that it’s your wedding and that you alone are the decision maker! The number of children, for example, is left to your discretion. Be aware, however, that a range of 4 to 8 toddlers is reasonable to avoid a drama. As for ages, it is preferable that they are between 5 and 10 years old . Indeed, if they are smaller, it will be more difficult to capture their attention throughout the ceremony. Parity requires, make sure to have as many little men as little ladies, bet on an even number, an ethical and aesthetic question! Remember to select the same number of cherubim on the groom’s side as on the bride’s side. We shouldn’t upset the future in-laws…
Even if no link between the children and yourself is necessary – you can completely involve the offspring of your friends, or your godchildren. When you have made up your mind, let the parents know at least four months before the wedding and, once they have agreed, start looking for a cute outfit!
