My little sister is 18 but young for her age and Fiance is 11 years older than me (35) – I asked her to be my bridesmaid but she felt a bit weird about being escorted by a man much older than her so we’re calling her a bridesmaid but she’ll be escorting the ringbearer and flower girl instead (she’s great with kids and loves them). She also has a different dress that is more age appropriate than the rest of the bridesmaids.
I don’t think 16 is too young for your sister to be a jr bridesmaid, and if you ask her now she’s only 14 so I’d think it would seem weird to her. She has a special spot in your wedding and she’s standing for you!

I was 14 when my oldest sister got married. I would have been DEVASTATED if I hadnt been included in her wedding party.

I think you should include your sister of course!
I had my 15 year old brother as a junior groomsman. He didn’t get to go to the bachelor party, but he was included in everything else. We did not have him escorting a bridesmaid, so we had an uneven bridal party. Our bridesmaids did not have escorts for the processional. My little brother escorted his girlfriend during the recessional and we had all the siblings walk together for the grand entrance, so no one was alone.

I suppose that’s another thing!
I have seven bridesmaids, and Fiance has seven groomsmen, so his little sister would be #8. We were trying to think of any younger men in our families that might also be included (so she wouldn’t walk alone). We haven’t gotten very far with that..
We were thinking she would walk in as a bridesmaid, but rather than be escorted out by a groomsman she would walk out with the flower girls after the ceremony. @bella128:
I’m glad to hear you did that with your sister. Before we decide on anything we plan to ask her what her comfort level is and what she would prefer.
She is considerably younger than everyone else as Fiance is the oldest and she’s his sister from his mom’s second marriage.
