Q: How can I include my 12-year-old brother in the wedding party?

A: He can be a junior usher, who is customarily responsible for distributing programs and seating guests as they arrive. But you needn't be tied to tradition, and can create a whole new role for your younger brother. How about honorary head usher, informal videographer or first reader? Youre limited only by your own creativity.
