    It depends on her; if she really is 7 going on 12, maybe she would prefer the "adult" role of a junior.  Why don’t you give her a choice?

    i had the same issue with my husband’s little sister. For their older sister’s wedding (which was 6 months before ours) she was a flower girl. She was 9 and then turned 10 before our January wedding. I gave her the choice and she said she wanted to be a jr. bridesmaid. it was perfect. i got her a cute, still girly dress (the bridesmaid dresses were too old for her) and she LOVED being involved! 🙂

    I had two flowergirls – one was 8 one was 7, and from what I could tell they LOVED it – dropping the rose petals and all.  My guess is she won’t really know the difference between the two roles.  You could ask her if she wants to be a flower girl and if she reacts with anything but excitement, you could then offer her to be a jr. bridesmaid instead.  I do think 7 is still in FG territory tho 🙂

    My FG will be 10yrs old.  She wanted to be a FG and was really excited about it.  She’s afraid she’ll be too old soon, LOL.  So, FG it is for her!

    I’d ask your cousin’s daughter which one she’d want to be.

    i think jr bms should probably be teenagers and up to 10-11 they can still be a fg

    Usually at that age it would be fine if she’s a flower girl, but if she’s so tall I could see how it would look a little odd.  I still think asking her would be your best bet just to see what she would be most comfortable doing.

    My youngest sister will be 7.5 (going on being a 35 yearold laywer) at my wedding and she BEGGED me to be my flower girl! (there was no begging required  ) She had just been a flower girl in a friends wedding  last summer and now considers herself a "professional"

    My flower girls are 10 & 13. They are wearing colored dresses (not the traditonal frilly white). Really I just hate the term Jr. Bridesmaid – and someone needs to sprinkle petals around 🙂
