Okay, I have three Junior Bridesmaids, my fiance’s two little sisters and a girl that I used to mentor, and everything that I’ve read about Junior Bridesmaids covers the etiquiette and what they’re suppose to do pre-wedding but nothing about during the ceremony. I thought about making a sign for his sisters to carry that says “Hey brother, here comes your bride” (or something like that) and having the other girl walk with a bouquet in front of them, but I don’t know if that makes that one girl seem awkward? Or left out? Our should I do something completely different? Ideas, comments, options?

autiebob: Jr. Bridesmaids typically do the same things the bridesmaids do during the wedding.

At the weddings with junior bridesmaids that I’ve been to they just did what the bridesmaids did (ie. carried flowers and stood at the front) How old are these girls? I always see the signs etc. more being carried by flower girls/ring bearers etc.

They are bridesmaids. They do what bridesmaids do. They are only “junior” because of their age.
So basically they walk, stand walk, done.

In this case, “etiquette” be damned!
You have chosen to honor three lovely young ladies in your wedding, and they need do nothing more than look lovely and smile to be cherished by all who see them.
If you wish them to “do” something, lovely- if you don’t, STILL LOVELY.
They could- hand out programs, hand out rice/bubbles/petals, whatever to be thrown after the ceremony, carry a sign or Symbol of your union, as you mentioned, stand by a guest book, tons of possibilities.
Hope your wedding is PERFECT!

I had two of them. The first one helped the flower girl (flower girl was 2 jr bm was 12) down the aisle. The second carried a sign that said, “Uncle Matt (she was my niece so it was his first official “uncle” moment), here comes your Bride”, the other side of the sign said, “And they lived happily ever after” and she was the last person to leave the ceremony.
