Accordingly, is 12 too old to be a ring bearer?

But a 30-year-old ring bearer, or an overgrown 12-year-old girl in a tutu tossing petals isn't always a good idea, despite your best intentions. Flower girls should be between the ages of 3 and 7. Eight is a stretch if she's a big kid. Junior bridesmaids are 12-16, although you can extend that younger if you need to.

Furthermore, how old can a flower girl be? Flower girls are generally between four and eight years old. (Sometimes, "mature" two- and three-year-olds pull it off quite charmingly, possibly with parents escorting them down the aisle.)

Also Know, who is usually the ring bearer?

Typically the ring bearer is the nephew of the bride or groom, or the child of the maid of honor, best man, or other close friend.

How many ring bearers can I have?

If you are having trouble choosing between two children, there's no reason why you can't have two ring bearers. Give them each a ring to carry and send them down the aisle together. Or, if you're having a long train, one can act as a page boy (train bearer) instead.
