@Bben2009:  I have 2 girl cousins, one will be 13, the other almost 11 i think when i get married. I’m going to have them hand out programs/favors at the guests arrival. They’ll have matching dresses and be very important bc everyone will need this particular favor we’re doing.

@Bben2009:  I didn’t realize there was an age limit for flower girls: 8-9 seems fine to me- they are still in elementary school. That’s where I would put them if I were in your situation. Handing out programs isn’t even close to being “in” the wedding. I would put all the brothers and sisters or none.

@Bben2009:  my 9 y/o cousin will be my flower girl, and I was a flower girl when I was 9…it was fun! I don’t think 9 is too old for a flower girl, as long as the 9 y/o doesn’t feel like she’s too old.

I agree I was supposed to be a flower girl when I was 9-10 years old. Only reason I wasn’t was because my aunt and uncle eloped! I think it would be nice gesture. They’re still younger than your jr. bridesmaid, so I think it works.

@Bben2009:  While 8-9 is on the older range, it’s not too old. 

Since they are old enough to make up their own minds, there is absolutly nothing wrong with asking them.  Maybe they will want to be flower girls? 

Also, at that age, any job given to them by an adult is a sacred duty that must be carried out.  Handing out programs would be just fine, and they won’t run off getting bored.

@Bben2009:  my 9 year old niece was a flower girl…and my former tutee, who was 19 at my wedding, told me SHE wanted to be a flower girl because she’d never been one before.  They’re not too old and they will LOVE it.

@Bben2009:  8-9 is the perfect age for a flower girl.  I would say 12 would be a cutoff for flower girl age (though really, I’ve heard adorable stories about grandmas as flower girls, so it all depends on your crew).  I love that you’re including your fiance’s daughter in a special way too.
