Auntie Role?

I have a dilemma. I am not sure what role my aunt should play in my wedding. My mom has 13 brothers and sisters but I have a special relationship with this one particular aunt. She is the youngest of my mom's 13 siblings and she stayed with my family for a little while when I was a kid. She is also the person helping me plan my wedding because she is the only person I know who lives in the city where the wedding will take place.

I already have a Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor, 6 bridesmaids, and 2 Jr. Bridesmaids. Also, on my "bridesmaid side", there is already 1 more person than the "groomsmen side" so anything else would make it really unbalanced. My wedding coordinator said that Candle Lighters are usually younger people so that crossed that off the list. She also will have a different dress because she has already gotten her fabric to have a special dress made for the occasion in the colors of our wedding.

What types of roles are available for Godmother/Aunt in a wedding ceremony!

I need your help!


  1. If you are doing Bible readings you could have her do a reading.
    Do you have a poem that you really like that means a lot to you and your FH? If so, have her read it. Hopefully that is a little helpful!

  2. This is a very good one for me as my life is filled with amazing aunties...I agree with a reading, or perhaps highlighting them somehow in the program or during the reception?

  3. One of my aunts and I are really close. She is almost like a second mom to me. I'm also an only child so she fills in the times I need an older sister, as well.

    She's actually my MOH, but I am sure there are tons of other ways to incorporate your aunt into your special day.

    Like LauraAnn said she can do a reading or be an assistant with the guestbook or programs or anything.

    I know your wedding coordinator said that it's typically younger individuals that do certain tasks, but it's still your wedding. You can have an adult male as your flower girl if you wanted to. Like this guy:

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog! You will love Hackberry Creek! We had such a great time!!!

    Also, I agree with the reading!

  5. A reading is definitely a great place for an aunt/godmother. I plan to ask my godfather to do one of our readings.

    You might also want to make sure you put a special thank you to her in your programs.

  6. I agree with everyone above - a special reading and/or a special thank you to her in the program.

EARTH DAY!! One of my favorite celebrations! 3 ways you can help relieve the burden we've placed on the Earth!

Every time you turn around, there's a new holiday popping up like National Compliment Day celebrated on January 24th or International Dot Day celebrated on September 15th.

But who doesn't LOVE a reason to celebrate? I sure do!!

And one of those grand times for me is EARTH DAY!! I've been celebrating Earth Day since I was about 7 years old and each year, I execute some action, whether big or small, to contribute to protecting the planet.

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22 each year. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day events in more than 193 countries are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. Additionally, many people also celebrate EARTH WEEK and plan activities throughout the entire week to celebrate nature and our beloved planet.

Plant-Based Eating Plan - Meal Prep (11/19) - 1 Week Trial

Hey Corner Clique!!

So it's mid November and while Thanksgiving and Christmas are still approaching, I have my eyes set on another upcoming holiday....... New Years Eve!!

Living away from my family means that there are some years when I am unable to go home for the holidays. This usually happens especially if it's the holiday season before our big family reunions, which happen every three years. This coming summer, we will be headed to Sacramento, California for our big gathering!!

I guess that brings me to my why..... I hope this doesn't sound shallow but..... I really want to wear (and look good in) a sequin dress for New Years Eve. Not just this year, but year after year, after year, after year, after year..............................Let's be real, sequin can be very unforgiving, it's just not one of those fabrics that everyone loves. But it can be so beautiful and festive during this time of year. Sequin makes me happy!! :-) Therefore, I'm going to work ha…
