She could wear a white or ivory colored bridesmaid dress that is similar to yours. She could also wear a hair style that is similar to yours with a bridal hair accessory or flowers of some sort. 

That way she’ll look like a little bride, but it won’t look like there are two brides.

I think 14 might be too old to be a junior bride.

@MrsTVLover:  I agree.  It’s a bit too old to like to dress up like the bride at that age.

At 14, your daughter is definatly old enough to start a dialog.  Ask her what she wants.

I know this is a tradition in some places, but at age 14 I think it would be a bit creepy.

If you want her to be an attendant, help her find a pretty dress that coordinates with what the others are wearing.

@kir1011: My cousin did that with her (at the time 10 year old) daughter. I didn’t realize it was a “thing”. The girl had on a simplified version of her mom’s dress (no veil, same bouquet as the bridesmaids). 

I think at 14 she might be a little old for that, though. If she’s on the taller side it really could look like two brides. Make her “junior maid of honor” or something instead and have her in an accent color.

I agree with others, 14 is too old for this.

@kir1011:  She can be a junior bridesmaid – you can have more than one- or, as a pp suggested, she could be a junior maid of honor.

@kir1011:  I like the suggest of Junior Maid of Honor.  She will likely be helping a lot with your wedding as is, so it’s not that much of a streach.
