That could be really lovely, if the young lady in question would like to do so.  11 is a hard age; some girls feel too old to be a flower girl and would find it embarassing.

Maybe call her by another name – Jr. Bridesmaid?

have you asked her yet? Thinking back to me being 11, I’m not sure if I’d want to, but if I were a badass ballerina with a talent I wanted to show off then maybe.

We’re not having a ring bearer either but we have a 5 year old niece who will be a flower girl. But if it weren’t for her, we wouldn’t have a one in our wedding party.

Maybe “Flower Maid” or simply “Bridal Attendant”?

I think 11 is probably too old to be a flower girl. Most flower girls are pretty young. How old will she be for the wedding? 12? That puts her in 6/7th grade. I’m just having a hard time picturing a middle schooler wanting to dance down your aisle. But she may feel uncomfortable saying no.

It doesn’t hurt to ask her mom though!

This sounds awesome, and if she wants to do it, you should go for it.  My cousin had adult flower girls in her wedding and called them flower ladies or something, and even that was actually cool.  Maybe just call her a Flower Attendent or Flower Dancer?  Or just Ballerina? Honestly though, I don’t think 11 is too old to be a Flower Girl, unless the girl herself is not comfortable with it.  And people will not be thinking its lame if she is impressing them with cool ballet moves.

I think it’s a lovely idea. Obviously run it past her mum and see whet she thinks but if she likes showing off her dancing it sounds like a good chance for her to do so.
