What Are Jr. Bridesmaids & Jr. Groomsmen?

Jr. bridesmaids and Jr. groomsmen are young people between the ages of eight and 17. (In other words, they're too old to be ring-bearers and flower girls--and too young to be bridesmaids and groomsmen.)

They are members of the bridal party, however, and many of the same rules apply for selecting them as their older counterparts. Their duties may be the same as well.

The parents of the jr. bridesmaids and jr. groomsmen are responsible for their travel and lodging, to-and-from the wedding.

Jr. Bridesmaids/Jr. Groomsmen: Financial Responsibility

If the parents of the Jr. bridesmaids and Jr. groomsmen accept the invitation of the bride- and groom-to-be for their children to participate in their wedding:

* They are responsible for their lodging to and from the wedding. (In addition to their own. I'm assuming their parents are also invited.)

* They are responsible to pay for their children's wedding attire and all accessories.

* They are responsible to extend a wedding gift to the bride and groom.


Remember that Jr. bridesmaids are young girls and should not be dressed provocatively.

Jr. Bridesmaids/Jr. Groomsmen: A Word of Advice!

Take note that Jr. bridesmaids and Jr. groomsmen are children!

The girls should not be dressed in the same garb as the bridesmaids if the latter's attire is provocative and/or mature. It's easy to pick a dress that matches the bridesmaids' dresses from the same manufacturer as theirs, in the same color and fabric, in a younger, more suitable look for the junior girls. Their makeup should not be overdone either.

Boys are easier! They are dressed in the same attire as the male members of the bridal party, which may be a tux, which is appropriate at any age--and cute! And boys don't wear makeup :-).

Jr. groomsmen may also act as ushers.

Jr. Bridesmaids/Jr. Groomsmen: Duties!

Jr. bridesmaids walk up the aisle with the rest of the bridesmaids. They stand at the ceremony with the bridal party and exit with them. They receive flowers and gifts from the bride-to-be for participating.

Jr. groomsmen can act as ushers (there should be one usher for every 50 guests) and why not? Kids between the ages of eight and 17 are more than capable of the task. They also stand at the ceremony with the rest of the bridal party and exit with them. They receive boutonnières and gifts from the groom for their participation in the wedding.
