Glitter650,  Like you, I have a Jr. Bride’s Maid in my wedding party. She’s 12. My Fiance and I asked her parents first…it if would be okay if she could be in our wedding party.  They said it was fine. ::YAY!:: She’s like a daughter to us… But anyhow, her parents are paying for her dress.  At the same time, their younger daughter is also one of our Flower Girls and their son too, is our Ring Bearer.

It’s really hard to bring up the finances..I say just go with worst case scenario and assume you will pay for it yourself. Be more conscious about the price tag.  If you get reimbursed, great, if not, you wouldn’t have spent a an arm and a leg anyway. Just a leg. 🙂

My two young cousins are jr bridesmaid too (10 and 7).  I asked my aunt before mentioning it to them.  I think acceptance of the responsibility to be in the wedding means acceptance of the associated costs.  However, I did try and keep the dresses as reasonably priced as possible!

I agree – I think accepting the responsibility also means accepting the cost. I’d definitely broach the topic with them first, however, and discuss what a reasonable budget is. Alternatively, you could set your colors and let them find their own dresses.

Hi Glitter650,

I wanted my nieces and nephews all to be in my 15th aniversary and they range from the age of 3 to 9, (four girls and four boys) my sister in law has three, my first brother has two and my youngest brother has three, so before making it official I sat down and talked to each of them and they agreed to it, I did this with a lot of time before hand so they could make the money arrangements for my siblings clothes, my nieces dresses are going to be made, each dress is $25 and I got a deal with my other sister in law that works with tuxedos for $49 each including everything (the original price was $100). I told my brothers and my sister in law the prices and they were fine with it. I was clear since the begining, I wanted them to be in the anniversary, but if their parents couldn’t afford it, then they wouldn’t be in the anniversary. Just be sincere, tell them that you have a budget, I know they will understand. Good luck.
