What are you doing for pictures that wouldn’t be appropriate for her? I think I’m missing something…

When I was a junior bridesmaid in my mom’s wedding I was that age, maybe a little younger. I wore almost exactly the same dress as everyone else (I’d change it if it was strapless or something, though) and I came along for everything but the bachelorette party. I didn’t have real wedding responsibilities, though, like bridesmaids do a lot.

I think 15 is too old to be a junior bridesmaid.  Junior Bridesmaids are typically 7-14.  Why would going for pictures be inappropriate?  What goes on during your photo sessions? She’s 15, not 6.  It’s not like you would need a babysitter for her.

@Sarabara590:  If your not sure she really wants to be a part of it, can you give her another duty?  Like a short reading or greater for the ceremony?

My 12 year old cousin was my junior bridesmaid.  The only thing she didn’t participate in the day of the wedding was when the wedding party went to a martini lounge for a drink right after the wedding.  She was great during the wedding party pics, etc. and was happy to be part of the whole thing.  I’m glad I included her in my wedding.  All of my bridesmaids wore mismatched dresses, and I got a pretty flower belt for her to wear.
