The Role of a Junior Bridesmaid

A junior bridesmaid is a girl that is typically between the ages of 8 to 14. She is someone who is too old to be a flower girl and too young to be a bridesmaid but you would like to include her in your wedding. Although young girls this age tend to take their role in the wedding very seriously. Some of their duties are as follows:

* Attend bridals showers and help with setting up, making favors, and cleaning up.

* Voicing her input as to color and style of dress she and other wedding party members will be wearing. Also showing up to all shopping and fitting appointments.

* A junior bridesmaid will also attend the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.

* She will help the ushers seat the guests if needed.

* She will hand out programs, if available, before the ceremony.

* Walking down the aisle in the procession and standing at the alter is also part of her duties.

* After the ceremony she will stand in the receiving line greeting guest and handing out confetti, rice or bubbles.

Buying a Junior Bridesmaid dress online

It is not necessary for a junior bridesmaid dress to be exactly the same as the other bridesmaids dresses. A junior bridesmaid dress needs to be appropriately modest for a girl in the age range of 8 to 14. However, the dress needs to blend and compliment the other bridesmaid dresses. There are many places online that you can go to to find a junior bridesmaid dress that will do the job. I have narrowed the selection down to a few of what I consider the best.


This website offers a wonderfully diversified selection of junior bridesmaid dresses. The prices start at around the mid $100 range and many are available in up to 58 colors. The dresses are available in sizes 4 to 16. Magic Moments offers dresses from many popular designers including, but not limited to: "Expressions" by Forever Yours, Alexia Designs, Sweetie Pie/Sweet Teen, and U S Angels.

Junior Bridesmaid gifts

There are many different items you can choose from to give your junior bridesmaid as a token of appreciation for being involved in your special day. First and foremost the thing you need to keep in mind is the age of the girl you chose to be your junior bridesmaid.

*Every girl loves a charm bracelet and what better gift could you give her than one that includes charms related to that special day.

*A photo frame with a picture of the wedding is always an appreciated gift. Even better, have the frame decorated with the words "Junior Bridesmaid".

*A decorative memory box is also a good gift especially when decoupaged with a picture of the bride with her junior bridesmaid.

*Any girl will proudly wear a t-shirt saying "Junior Bridesmaid. She will also be happy to explain to anyone who wants to hear about the meaning of the shirt.

*Every girl loves a funky purse, especially in the theme colors of the wedding.

*A decorative fabric bag filled with goodies especially picked out for the junior bridesmaid age group. Little items such as lip gloss, bubble bath, hand and body lotion, gel, hair accessories, a pair of funky socks, etc.

      When I was 11 I was asked to be the junior bridesmaid at aunts wedding. Basically she should just help the bride in any way she can, and if you do not have a flower girl she can throw flowers too. Usually they carry small bouquets. By the way I loved this post and since I am getting married soon it was helpful. Thx.
