My niece is 10 and I am having her as a flower girl along with FIs niece who is 2, they will walk down the aisle together. I know, not much help, but I don’t think 9 is too old for a flower girl, but that is just MO.

My sister and I were flower girls in my uncles wedding and we walked together… We were 10 and 5 at the time. Maybe she could be a 2nd flower girl and help the little one down the aisle?

Except for the program and introductions, it doesn’t really matter what you call her.

Normally junior bridesmaids are between 6-14, so she is in the correct range for that position.

Depending on the age of the flower girl, she could accompany her, or she could go ahead of the flower girl and carry a parasol or pennant  that says “Here Comes the Bride”, or “The Bride is Coming”.

FI’s daughter is 9 and she will be our flower girl. It really all depends on what you want. The main reason we gave her the role of Flower Girl is his son is ring bearer. So it made sense. My 13 year old son is a groomsman.

I’m kind of in agreement with you that 9 is a bit old to be a Flower Girl (although I’ve attended a wedding with a 20 y/o Flower Girl LOL). I like the suggestion of her carrying a “here comes the bride” sign or helping the FGs down the aisle. You could give her a non-traditional role and call it something fun in your programs.

I had 2 flower girls and both were 16 years old (we do not have any little girls in our family).  I think there is no age limit on where to put her.  I think she would be perfect where ever you feel would be the best place for her.  Are you REALLY close to her?  If yes, then make her a Jr. Bridesmaid.  If you aren’t that close, have her be a flowergirl also.

I was 10 as a Jr. Bridesmaid or Best Man and my sister was 6 (almost 7 ) as a Flower Girl. I’d make her a Jr. Bridesmaid or Best Man.
