Your “proposal” idea sounds so, so cute!! I remeber reading somewhere that the average age or so for junior bridesmaids is about 9-14, so technically she falls in that range. But if that seems weird to you, you could try to come up with something that you think better describes her role.

Could she be lead/head flower girl in chrage of rangling the younger two? 

Do you have a ring bearer? Could the older kids sort of split the responsibility? Like your niece carries your ring and your nepew carries the groom’s? That way they have a chance to particpate in the ceremony. 

Maybe you could talk to your niece about it? Explain to her that you really want her to be a part of your day and let her choose what she’d like to be called. Maybe she’d want to be a flowergirl too, even if she’s a little old. Or maybe the two of you could have a little fun and come up with something creative together! Laughing

If Jr. Bridesmaid/Groomsmen isn’t right for you, come up with your own term. Have them walk together after the bridal party, but before the flower girls. If you choose to give them their own title you can choose if you want them to stand with you or just walk down the aisle and sit in the front. 

Perhaps they could carry something important–rings, a sign, etc.

I did go to one wedding where they put the ‘flower girl’ as “honorary (guest)?” or something after honorary as she was too old for flower girl and they did not have her as a bridesmaid.
