I’m currently putting together my bridal party, which potentially includes some family members aged 12 – 15.  I’ve heard that some brides include ‘Junior Bridesmaids’ in their wedding… what exactly is a Junior Bridesmaid?  What does being a Junior Bridesmaid entail?
The typical age range of Junior Bridesmaids is 9 – 15 years old.  They usually wear something similar to what the bridesmaids are wearing, but more age appropriate.  They can be involved in bridal showers and wedding-related tasks (overseeing the guestbook for example) but do not participate in more adult-focused events such as the bachelorette party.  Serving as a Junior Bridesmaid signifies that a person is a VIP of the bride, just not quite old enough to serve as a full-fledged bridesmaid.
