You can do that or you can make her a junior bridesmaid.  If you have a train she’s old enough to probably help you adjust it too if you need help before walking up, which makes for cute pictures 🙂

@SouthernBee33:  Usually a junior bridesmaid wears the same colour dress as the other bridesmaids and walks in at the same time, and stands with them. She is sometimes not paired with a groomsman. Actually the word “junior” is kind of redundant, because her role on the day is very similar to a bridesmaid. It’s more that she’s (usually) a relative, and may not be in pre wedding events.

In my opinion, 12 is a bit old to be holding a “here comes the bride” sign.

How old is the flower girl? If the flower girl is under 4, it’d help to have someone walk with her anyway.

I don’t get the junior bridesmaid title at all. I have four young girls standing up with me. The two youngest will be flower girls. The two older girls (they’re both eight) are two of my bridesmaids. They will have a slightly smaller bouquet and will stand up with the other bridesmaids.

@SouthernBee33:  If you want her standing up there, just call her a bridesmaid. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that, then why not let her do a reading?

We had 3 flowergirls, they were 6, 9 and 12. The 12 year old was listed as a flower girl on the program but actually carried a sash for a ceremony we were doing. It was nice to give her a bit of a different role than her sisters (they were the only young girls we know and didn’t want to ask only one or two of them). But I have to say, they were adorable! And super helpful, and some of the sweetest kids I’ve met!

@SouthernBee33:  Honestly, I was worried about the same thing, but I decided to heck with it. I wanted them up there with me! I have four bridesmaids and a bridesman, plus the two younger bridesmaids, and the two flower girls. So worth it!

I would suggest a reading during the ceremony. I was the same age when I read at a cousin’s wedding.

One of my favorite photos ever is my sister and I walking down the aisle together as co-flower girls at my aunt’s wedding – flower girl duties can be intimidating and having a co-flower girl can make things run more smoothly. 

Kate Moss had a whole team of flower girls at her wedding, so I’d say the more the merrier 🙂
