xxallurebridexx:  My sister is having her 8 year old son as a junior groomsman 🙂

He’s mature enough to stand up there quietly

xxallurebridexx:  There’s no such thing as too old to be ring bearer and too young to be junior groomsman. That the whole point of the junior groomsman role – it’s for boys who aren’t adults but are too old to be ring bearer. (Same with girls and junior bridesmaids).

Personally, I think signs are for younger kids and he’s better carrying the rings (and being a junior groomsman). But that’s just my opinion. Perhaps best is to discuss it with his parents (and him).

xxallurebridexx:  I was a 9yr old flower girls and there was a 8 yr old ring bearer.. I think the older children can take it a bit more seriously.. and i think him having a suit and a pillow with the rings is apropriate, maybe he holds it with one hand rather then the two a younger attendant would use..

I don’t see why he’s too yung to be a junior groomsman.  My sister had a junior bridesmaid who was 10.  He’s capable of following instructions, and standing still, right?

I don’t think he’s too young or old for either. If you don’t have a ring bearer, that could be great! Plus he’s old enough that you don’t have to worry about him making it down the aisle 🙂
