I need help! I want to have all of my nieces/nephews and future neices/nephews involved in the wedding party. Here’s where the tricky part comes in… I have 2 nieces (ages 6 & 7) who are not going to be flowergirls and are too young (IMO) to be junior bridesmaids. I want them to take part in the processional and to to lead us (after we are married) back down the aisle during the recessional with mr & Mrs signs.
But what do I call them in the program?

I’d call them Jr. Bridesmaids. Anyone who isn’t “old enough” to be a regular bridesmaid but is too old to be a flower girls is a Jr. in my opinion.

@DDG84: I agree, I think Jr. Bridesmaids is the most appropriate title.

I’m just wondering why they aren’t flower girls. Is it that they feel as if they are too old for that role? I had two junior bridesmaids, but they were 10 and 13. My flower girl was five-and-a-half.

I would say Jr. Bridesmaids… Although, I did call my ringbearers “Banner Boys” …So they could be “Banner Girls” …. My Banner Boys carried a sign down the aisle during the processional that said “Here comes the Bride…” and then during the recessional, the sign said “Just married….” …So that could work?

My flower girl is going to be 7. =) She is big for her age, but she is still excited about being a flower girl.
Our ring bearer is her old brother who will be 10. We asked him first and he was happy to be a ring bearer. =) However, he will be wearing the same clothes as the groomsmen because he is older.

Thanks for the comments… perhaps I should explain a bit further:
I plan on having 1 flower girl (goddaughter), 2 ring bearers (youngest nephews), also 1 jr. bridesmaid/jr groomsman thus leaving these 2 precious girls. I was just asking to see if anyone had a different name for them. I don’t really want to call them jr. bridesmaids as I personally feel that the title should be reserved for someone a bit older (only imo- not per any etiquitte). I would most likely go with flower girl titles if nothing better comes along.
