- Wedding: October 2008
My niece, who will turn 11 years old next month, will be my junior bridesmaid. We’re having a difficult time finding a dress for her because she is already 5’6" tall, but skinny as a rail – and she’s already "blossoming", as my mother says. Ordering something from a bridal shop is out because the wedding is in 32 days and nothing will be ready in time. We need something blue, that is in a junior’s or women’s small size, dressy yet modest enough for an eleven year old girl. Everything we’re finding is either too precious, more like something a flower girl would wear, or far too mature looking for her — eleven year olds should not wear strapless dresses in our opinion, or anything remotely low cut. It should be at or just below the knee, and not too heavy a fabric as the wedding is on the beach.
Anyone have any ideas? I’ve been scouring department store websites to no avail.
