Are there any British brides out there? The news did a piece on Kate Middleton’s potential bridesmaids and they were listing a lot of children as bridesmaids. I was wondering if that is common or if that is a Royal thing because I remember Diana having lots of kids in her wedding too?

Erm, well the only time I was a bridesmaid was as a 5 year old! And my sister was one aged 3! But I think it’s less common now.
From what I’ve read on WeddingBee, in the US you tend to distinguish the roles of adults and children into flower girls, junior bridesmaids, bridesmaids and maids/matrons of honour. In the UK, we don’t really worry about those distinctions so much. I think a child is called a “flower girl” if the bride and groom just want her to wear a pretty dress, but not really be involved in the wedding ceremony? I’m having 3 grown up bridesmaids and two children (his nieces). Their dresses will co-ordinate with the rest of the wedding party, they’ll probably have mini-bouquets or posies, they’ll walk down the aisle with the other BMs (after the bride) and sit at the front.
Any help? 🙂
