I’ve never seen someone over the age of about 13/14 be a junior bridesmaid.  Typically a Jr Bridesmaid or Best Man title is reserved for a girl between the ages of 9 and 14 who is too old to be a flower girl.  I would include her as a regular bridesmaid or in some other way, such as doing a reading during the ceremony.  IMO, if you’re old enough to drive, be a junior/senior in highschool, etc, you’re probably too old to be a junior bridesmaid!  We didn’t have an even number for pictures, and they turned out just fine.

I think you could add her as a bridesmaid and have the stepbro be a junior groomsman. That way too, the numbers will still be even.

Definitely a JR Bridesmaid or Best Man – way too old for a flower girl.  My Fiance little sister is 13 and will be in the wedding as a JR Bridesmaids (but she’s carrying our rings).  So, we don’t really have a flower girl, but we do have a ring bearer – we just call her a Jr Bridesmaids.  lol

You can really make up anything for anyone, its your wedding!!  No one judges, (at least shouldn’t) and could careless if they do. 

As for the pics, I don’t think it will make a difference.  If you are OCD (in a positive way! 🙂 And it really irks you (my sister is like that, so I understand) – then you can add another guy or use the usher to take pictures with the full wedding paty to equal it out.

Good luck!
