I think it’s a good idea. I have 2 cousins I’m quite close to who are 18 and 20 but they weren’t part of my bridal party. Instead, they were the ushers, gift table and guestbook attendants. They loved helping out and playing a bigger role during our wedding day.

I think usherettes are fine, but I do think you need to be conscientious of how you ask. My Maid/Matron of Honor was an “usherette” earlier this year. She was never officially asked; she was told a few weeks before the wedding at the bachelorette party by another member of the wedding party. She found out that she was expected to go buy a dress about a week before the wedding, and that had to match another usherette’s dress. By the end, she felt like it was done as an afterthought to justify getting her help on the wedding day and having her bring gifts to 4 prewedding parties (engagement party, bachelorette party, lingerie party AND bridal shower!) So, that pretty much sucked.

HOWEVER, I think if you explain the reasons you mentioned, and let them know it would be an honor to have them be a part of your wedding day, it should be just fine!
