I think we’ll be doing the same thing with my fiance’s 15 year old cousin – she’s too old to be simply a flower girl so my mom suggested a junior bridesmaid. I’d rather not deal with having a junior bridesmaid since I don’t know any of the etiquette involved it. My other bridesmaids/matrons are in their 30’s and having a 15 yo tagging along will be awkward, but she’s a peach and she really wants to be in the wedding, so I figure we’ll just work it out somehow. I think our ringbearer will be our 110 lb. dog also (if we can convince the church to allow it) so to compound matters, her date will be a huge hound. I think she’s got a sense of humor at least!

Our flower girl was a little younger (10), but we treated her like a flower girl/junior bridesmaid.  She loved it!  Her two younger siblings were our ring bearer and bird bearer (we had a bird theme and needed to include A somehow!), so it really set her apart as the older one.

I would talk to the 15 year old and ask if she would be comfortable with it.  If she is, great!  If she would rather live under the junior bridesmaid category, create a new way for her to hold flowers that looks like a combination!
