We had my 12 year old cousin she walked down with DHs 16 year old cousin. Our bridal party was uneven but we had 2 bms walk down with my brother. it wasnt a huge deal. My Photographer “forgot” to take a full bridal party picture so I didnt really get to see how it would have looked in a picture together. This is a non pro pic!

My sister is my junior bridesmaid. (She’s 12.) We are having the bridesmaids walk down the aisle solo at the beginning of the ceremony. At the end I’m having her hold hands with the flower girl to walk out.

Crap I totally haven’t thought about who will walk her yet! I had wanted her to be a flower girl but like yours, she will be 10 which I ugess is too old.

She has a 12 and a 16 year old brother, maybe we’ll throw one or both of them in with the groomsmen and then have them walk her.

Otherwise I’ll send her down solo- thats fine right?

My 14 year old little sis was a Jr. Bridesmaid. Luckily, I also have a 14 year old step brother who walked with her and was our Jr. Groomsman. However, I don’t think there is anything wrong with her making a solo trip down the aisle.

I ran into this (but ours was based more on uneven numbers than the junior BMs age) and ended up just having the guys already  up front and all the BMs walked down alone. Would that be an option? Although I do think your Fiance is being kind of silly.

yes, I am having my 11 year old neice.  So i thought we should have a Junior groomsmen. It works perfectly, because my fiance and I met at his 4th birthday party. Lots of significance for us.  They will walk together just at the end.

Your Fiance wouldn’t like my bridal party…  We have 2 Groomsmen and 2 BM’s…  then we are planning on having all of his nieces and nephews involved in so’sme way…  his 2 nephews we were thinking of making ushers and making 2 of his nieces Jr Bridesmaid or Best Man (ages 11 and 8ish) and the youngest (age 5) flower girl.  I will probably have the two Jr Bridesmaid or Best Man walk down together, or have the ushers escort them.  (but most likely the first option)

@Roux:  I WAS a junior bridesmaid and walked back down the aisle with one of the groomsman, and it was no big deal.  Does Mr. Roux think his groomsman is going to “ruin her” as per society standards of a century or two ago just by walking with her??  LOL I’m just kidding about that part.  If it’s such a big deal, make her a bridesmaid.  Nobody ever said how old you have to be to be a bridesmaid!

hey! i think you should ask the gm if he minds or it makes him uncomfortable… the only problem i see with it is if it makes him uncomfortable….. which i doubt it will! we are having 1moh and 3 jrbms…. my moh is walking with a jrgm and my jrbms are walking with gm….. i want to include my fi and my family and this works perfect! its silly to have tension over a simple walk. or you could find a family friend around the same age that is not involved in the wedding but stands and walks her up……. good luck!!!
