so I am down to three BM’s and my fi has 3 GM’s.
I am considering asking my fi’s little sister, who is 10, to be a Jr. Bridesmaid or Best Man to even things out. Is that too young?
My other concern is that she already bought the dress she’ll be wearing to the wedding (yeah, she bought it a couple weeks after we were engaged..crazy I know!), and I would feel bad asking her to wear a different dress (the one she has now would in no way match!)
what do you think??

I don’t think that’s too young. She’s old enough that you don’t have to worry about her throwing herself on the ground and pitching a fit. She should be good to stand up there for the ceremony…I’m sure she’s to you to know anything about bachlorette parties so it’s not like she’ll feel left out of anything. I’d say go for it. As for the dress thing…perhaps you could ask her to wear it to the rehersal? It would still allow her to wear it to something related to your wedding but then you could explain that she’ll be getting another new dress to wear for the actual wedding. When I was 10 I would’ve been all over that idea!

I don’t think 10 is too young, and she’s probably going to be excited that she gets to be in the wedding and buy a new dress that she’ll forget all about the one she already bought. Like eeh said, ask her to wear that dress to the rehersal.

i was a jr. bridesmaid and im pretty sure i was younger than 10. and if she must have been really excited about the wedding since she got the dress so soon.. so i think she will be even more excited to actually be in the wedding! it never hurts to ask!

Having a ten year old in my wedding, Trust me it what little girls live for, to dress up and play grown up for the day :0). After I called mine her mom told me she was already on the computer looking at hair styles and shoes.

haha yes that’s very true. Well I asked her about two months ago.
And it’s a very good thing I did, because I had one of my BM’s drop out of the wedding. So it was good to have her still.
I bought her the dress though, because I felt bad that she’d already bought a dress, and would then have to buy another one. So I bought it, and shipped it to her with a little card asking her to do me the honor of being my Junior Bridesmaid 🙂 She loved the dress, and wrote me a card back, cute huh 🙂

The only thing I would worry about with a 10 year-old would be her ability to participate in all the pre-wedding parties and events.
How different are the responsibilities between a Bridesmaid or Best Man and a Jr. BM?
I’m sure you wouldn’t want her to feel left out but there may be events that wouldn’t be appropriate for her to attend (I’m thinking specifically about things like lingerie showers, etc).
I’m with most of the other bees though, I think she would be honored and super excited to stand up there with y’all on your big day!

i think 10 years old is fine. I would probably buy her another dress yourself though so she doesn’t have to pay for another dress (and she is still a child and not working!)
