I have a cousin who will be turning 12 by the time my wedding takes place. I know she is to old to be a flowergirl and to young to be a bridesmaid, so what role does she play?? her sister will be the flowergirl, so i want her to be a part of it.

Junior bridesmaid, guestbook attendant are great suggestsions, reader, and another for you, she could carry a sign?
Heres some of my fave that i am basing my inspiration off of!
I know these mostly show lil girls, but really anyone could be a sign person! my neice will be 8 and shes going to be my sign girl!

I don’t like the idea of guestbook attendant. What 12 year old wants to be stuck behind a table asking strangers to sign a guest book? Especially when her sister is a flower girl.
I strongly suggest junior bridesmaid. Typically that means wearing the same type of dress as the bridesmaids, though she could match her sister. She doesn’t need to be paired with a groomsman.

@Trish2008: I second the suggestions for junior birdesmaid. I was a JBM in my cousin’s wedding. I think I was 11, my sister was 13, and our other cousin was 9- we were all JBM. We wore the same color as the regular Bridesmaid or Best Man, but obviously in a more conservative style.

Junior Bridesmaid or Best Man. I would probably fall asleep as a guest book attendant.

I second junior bridesmaid! Or honestly, she could be a flower girl with her sister. It might be cute. But maybe ask her what she wants!

I guess they aren’t really a thing anymore, but when we were little, I was always a flower girl and my older sister would be what we called a rice girl. The rice girls were in charge of starting the “throw stuff at the newlyweds” and passing out projectiles. Before the ceremony, they’d hand out the bags of rice, then follow the flower girls and precede the bride in the processional. At the end, they’d cue the rest of the congregation to begin tossing the rice toward the couple. They carried baskets like the flower girls, but theirs held whatever they’d be using and we were usually dressed the same, only minor differences if any. I remember looking forward to being one when I got old enough, but at that point, there was a lull in weddings.
