@flutterbi: Her main duty can be escorting her 2 1/2 year old sister down the aisle. Kids are pretty finicky when it comes to being in the spotlight. My niece and nephew (ages 4 and 5) were the flowergirl and ring bearer for my sister’s wedding and even though they are naturally outgoing and were supposed to walk down the aisle together…they completely froze up when it was time….and my older sister ended up walking them down the aisle =)

She could also do a special reading at the wedding.

As for gifts…maybe jewelry or a little goody bag would be nice.

I know I was always a little bitter at not being the flower girl when my same-age cousing was. But when we were both junior bridesmaids, I felt like it was a greater position, I felt older and more respected. I think the neice will understand that just by being asked. I was 11 when I was a junior bridesmaid. She will feel like you both think so highly of her that she gets to be a bridesmaid. Good Luck

My younger cousin was 9  when I asked her if she wanted to be my flower girl(10 at the time of the wedding), and she said “no way, I wanna be a bridesmaid!” LOL so you never know, maybe she would be exicited to be one of the ‘big girls’.  I asked her to help me with a few easy projects, like wrap ribbons on flowers or glue stuff on the favors.  She was totally fine.
