My niece (8 years old) will be with us while getting ready. I got her this shirt for that time (my BMs are wearing black hoodies that say bride tribe). https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FB3XP7A/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

my 2 FGs got ready with “the big girls.” 🙂 Their mom (my SIL) dropped them off and they just wore shorts/tshirts–we didn’t do getting ready outfits. They got their hair done with all of us, and then one of my sweet bridesmaids ‘did their makeup’ by using clean brushes and just pretending to do theirs so they could be like us. My mom, my Mother-In-Law, and my BMs all helped the FGs get dressed and stay entertained.
It was really a sweet time with them because they got to “help” me get ready, and they got to feel included, and they’re in all the getting ready pics. Plus, we totally had the music blasting and we all had a dance party and I love that they were there for that.
We did formal pics/first look/everything prior to the ceremony, so it was perfect; everyone was already together so it made it easy to get the pictures efficiently, and start the ceremony on time.
