So my girls are doing the dress below and I’m having a hard time with the jr bridesmaid. I wasn’t going to have one, but the little girl I’m having is too old to be a flower girl and I just couldn’t imagine not having her as a part of my wedding. She is 10 years old (will almost be 11 at the time of the wedding). I know I don’t want her to wear this same dress and I’m thinking about doing something that is a little lighter pink (bm’s are wearing fuschia) anyway, my point is…I CAN’T FIND A JR BRIDESMAID DRESS TO SAVE MY LIFE!! Everything I look at is taking and doesn’t coordinate well. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, I’ve thought about having the bm’s carry an all white bouquet and then I would carry a full color bouquet. How do you think that will look? we are getting married on the beach and our colors are pink and brown. We are going to be throwing cherry blossoms in the mix as well. Any advice would be great!!

I think you could definitely put the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress on the junior bridesmaid- its a fun dress thats not too sexy/grown up for an 11 year old. Maybe just have her bouquet be smaller than the other girls? You could do a lighter pink but light pink to me gives off a different energy than the bright pink you show above, so I’m not sure.

I don’t have any ideas on the junior bridesmaid dress (although I think a lighter pink version of a similar dress would be cute! maybe something with 2 straps since she is younger?)…however I have an inspiration pic that I love of bridesmaids with all white bouquets and a bride with a color bouquet and I think it’s so cute!!! (The dresses are pink too, so even better!) Thought I would share so you could see how it looked. I think it will look great!

There are a lot of cute girls’ dresses at J Crew, like this:
You could also have her in brown if your can’t find the right pink to go with your bridesmaids.
I think your flower idea sounds beautiful!

@lmc183 Ohhh that pic is beautiful! That’s exactly the look I’m going for! Thank you sooo much! I was thinking about doing the lighter pink version or the brown of the dress. She was so excited hearing about pink being the color that I don’t know if I could disappoint her by being in a brown dress. LOL
@leeluu that’s my biggest issue is making sure the bust area of the dress is not old for her if you know what I mean. I guess I just need to find out the smallest size the dress comes in. I have her measurements. I just didn’t know if other people who have had jr bridesmaids or are having them have found themselves in the same scenario with the dresses. I’m having the 2 flower girls wear tutus 🙂

I agree with you. I don’t think the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is suitable for an 11 yr old
The single strap and the sweetheart neckline are too mature for her.
David’s Bridal has this dress available in a number of colors:

What do you think about this dress??? would it look stupid since its long? Or should I find someone to alter it and make it shorter. This is the exact dress type I was looking for, for the jr. bridesmaid except its long. My dress will have the one shoulder as well so I thought it would be nice for the whole theme to follow. I love it! 🙂 I could do the same color as the bm’s or go with a lighter pink. what do you think?
