I like the third one. I think its classic and can go with anything. And shortening it would give it something unique and go with your BMs. My second choice is the first one, but I don’t like staples on young girls, MPO. There is usually an option to add straps, like spaghetti straps, they could be easily added by the seamstress if it’s not an option. And if not, go to Michael’s and add some ribbon, any strap would make a big difference. You could add a cute cardigan or something give them the option of even more coverage for after the ceremony. Maybe ask their parents too, I don’t think my dad would have let me wear something staples at that age, but that was 25 years ago!

Strapless clothes and minors don’t mix. I’m not a prude and I wouldn’t consider it. Especially with the countless rants you read everyday (for the past several yrs no less) about advertising that markets adult styles toward kids and then people wonder why kids are so eager to skip childhood and become little adults. An average junior bridesmaid doesn’t have anything to hold up a strapless dress anyway. If the ceremony is religious at all, then don’t be surprised if the minister objects.

I have a 10 year old son, and if he was a girl I would not allow her to wear a strapless dress at that age.  The little girls in his class still dress very much like little girls.  I think the third dress would be the cutest.  Ithink it would be beyond cute hemmed up shorter, and would still fit with the look you are going for.

The third one is beautiful and cute.

I think the second one would be the most age appropriate for them.  I think the third one is too young for that age group…  and I LOVE the first one….  maybe if you add a cover-up for over there sholders?

hmm, I’m not a fan of strappless dresses on girls that young. I liked the 2nd dress but i actually thought the 3rd would be best if you were able to take the hem up a little, I like the 2nd dress but am still uncertain if its age appropriate, but i am a bit of a grandma

First dress is way too old for them, but the second is cute and more appropriate. The third would be better for 2-6 year old girls. I’m guessing the parents would (or should) strongly object to the wearing strapless at that age.

I think the second one goes nicely with your bridesmaid dresses since it also has a belt. I too think you can’t do strapless on little girls but it is very easy to add straps and most strapless dresses come with spaghetti straps anyway.

I am not a fan of strapless gowns for junior bridesmaids.  Even though the gowns I wanted for my two junior bridesmaids (to coordinate with the bridesmaids’ dresses) normally only came as strapless gowns, the bridal salon owner contacted the designer to see if she would agree to make straps for their gowns.  She agreed, and they looked adorable!

My thoughts are that dress #1 is not age appropriate.  I’m not a parent, but if I had a 10 year old, they would not be allowed to wear that.  Dress #2 is really cute but I’m not sure if it is too young for this age group.  Dress #3 is my favorite, it is fun and cute without being baby-ish or sexy.  Just my thoughts, go with what you want, but you could always ask the girl’s parents on their thoughts.

I think dress #2 is perfect. I see the vintage look in them and I think they go very well with your bridesmaid dresses. 

#1 to old.

#3 too young.
