There is no age limit, nor should there be. If they are close enough to you that you want them as attendants, it doesn’t matter what their ages are.

I’ll be 30 by the time my wedding happens and my BMs will be 28, 28, and 33.  All 3 of them were honoured to be asked!  Are any of your BMs engaged or married?  None of mine are yet and I thought that maybe it would be annoying for them to talk about wedding-y stuff but so far everyone’s been wonderful, supportive, and enthusiastic.  Just talk to them!  I was nervous to ask mine (I’ve never been in a wedding and wasn’t sure if it was considered “fun” or “a hassle”) but they all sounded thrilled to be included.  Good luck! πŸ™‚

My bridesmaids range in age from 38 to 50. Your bridesmaids should be the women, who you want to stand by you, while you make the most important commitment of your life. Age shouldn’t make a difference.

Why would their wives have to be your bridesmadis? Most women choose their nearest and dearest female friends/relatives, etc. and don’t take spouses of the male attendants into account at all when choosing bridesmaids for themselves. No spouses will be hurt or offended if you don’t pick them either.

@nanny1702: You don’t have to have your sister-in-laws as bridesmaids just because your Fiance is having his brothers. You can have whoever you want!

 

I don’t think there is an age limit, just pick your nearest and dearest to stand up with you. πŸ™‚

I saw a friend earlier today who’s in her late forties and will be a grandmother in May.  She was bragging about how she’s going to be the matron of honor at her friend’s wedding next August.  Definitely no age limit.  πŸ™‚

Yep, one is never too old to be a bridesmaid. πŸ™‚ As long as you have a fairly good relationship and want your SILs to “attend” to you, age should not be an issue.

I wonder if there’s another role you could give them, like during the ceremony or cocktail hour?  We’re not having my brothers or his sister in the wedding party but instead are going to have each of them do a short, sweet reading during the ceremony.  We want to include them, but we wanted to ask our close friends to stand up next to us.  πŸ™‚
