How to honor Little Girl???

Any ideas on how to honor my 4 year old niece either at the church or reception???

You see, I've decided to ask my other two nieces (my goddaughter and my fiance's goddaughter) to be the flower girls...and I would like to honor my other niece, however I cannot make her a flowergirl (because I have others I would have to include and it would get way out of hand). I really want her to feel important by having her do something...any suggestions???

I'm thinking of having her help hand out the programs or birdseed, but I want her to do something that just SHE is going to do.

How to honor Little Girl???

That's kind of hard. She's only four and how many things can a four year old do without getting help. Plus the fact I'm kind of not creative with ideas. I have a question for you? I have a mother and father and I'm close with both. My fiance has the same. However, he doesn't have any sisters. His father will never be able to walk a daughter down the isle or get to dance with one at a wedding. I'm trying to figure out a way that I can honor him. I'm not too creative as I said before, therefore I can't come up with any ideas. My cousin said to have a dance with him. That will not take away from my dad but I don't want to embarass him by dancing with him. Does anyone else have another suggestio? I would be such a great help. Thank you. Good Luck

How to honor Father-in-Law

Why not ask him for an idea??? Perhaps he's been hoping to do something specific and hasn't found the right time/way to ask you???

I agree with your cousin...an announced dance (perhaps after the one with your father) would be sweet and appropriate. Perhaps you could ask him which song HE'D liked played...that way, he'll be included in the idea and be forewarned.

Jessica, I'm in the same boat. My father-in-law-to-be doesn't have a daughter either, and I would like to know some of the ideas you come across.

Jessica - Why would your future father-in-law be embarrassed to dance with you? I would think he would love it. Of course, I don't know him so maybe I'm way off the mark. You could also ask him to give a toast. Maybe that would make him feel special. But if you want something for you and him since he doesn't have a daughter, I'm not sure what else there is besides a dance.

How to honor a father in law

In order to make both of my fiance's parents feel special, they are both walking him down the aisle! Why should I be the only one given away? They're both tickled pink to be part of the procession - all too often the grooms parents play second fiddle to the bride's family.

Actually, since we're having only a BM & MoH, to honor our 4 siblings, we've included them and their significant others in our procession.

How to honor a father in law

My husband is Jewish and it is traditional in a Jewish wedding for the grooms parents to walk him down the aisle. Regardless of your religious beliefs, I agree that this is a great way to include his parents and make them feel very special.

How to honor a father in law

Thanks for all the ideas. I'll keep them all in mind. I still have 10 months to make a decision. I just want him to feel special. He is special and I want him to know that. If I come up with any more ideas, I will post them. Thanks Again.

Do you have ceremony programs. She can have a basket of them to hand out. Or, before the ceremony, have her walk down the isle and hand out roses or a flower to the ladies on the end of the isles.

Good luck, Mark

When calculating times, I work backwards. For example, in your case, start with the time you want to arrive at the ceremony site and then estimate the time of each task backwards. Deduct the travel time, time for pictures, make-up, hair, getting dressed etc. When you are done you will have arrived at the time you should begin getting ready. (Then add 1/2 hour for any delays that may occur.) It works for me.
