I don’t think it would look right to have a Jr. bridesmaid in anything with a sweetheart neckline, even if it had straps added.  Pretty much anything strapless looks like they’re being "dressed up" as adults.  Maybe something with sleeves or at least wide straps?

On color…I think it depends on the skin tone of the Jr. bridesmaids…

I don’t think it would look weird at all! I think you should choose whatever color you’re happy with, and I promise no one is going to stop and think, "Oh no they didn’t!" They will look lovely in whatever color you choose.

Good luck!

Just think "What would I wear to a school dance"…

As long as its appropriate for the age of the girls, go with it! I agree with you wanting it to be tea length; those always seem to look best on younger girls.

As long as they are in similar hues I think it would be fine. Tea length is adorable.

Have you thought about taking the girls out on a little shopping trip to see the kinds of things they like to wear?  Maybe that will help you decide on their dress style.  As far as dress color, what are your wedding colors, or is it just gold?

Are you okay with them not being juniors? 

For the dresses, you could take them shopping just to see what styles they like, but in the end you find a dress that you think would work.  If you don’t think the gold color would work on them, then the peach/coral would probably be really pretty.  None of these really match, but here are some Jr. Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

Have you considered doing custom dresses for the girls?  You could do the dress in your accent color but then put a strap of the bridesmaid dress fabric along the bottom of the dress and then again as a sash around their wastes maybe.  I made a really rough mock up of my idea in paint on my computer.  It looks awful.. I’m not good at paint.. but it should give you an idea of what I mean.

I know a lady that makes dresses and usually customs aren’t really any more expensive then what you order in the store.  Good luck!

The attachement didn’t seem to work.  Sorry.  I’m not sure why.

Trying one more time with a pic I found online.  You could substitute your 2 wedding colors here.

Ok.. it worked.. hooray!

So here is something a little closer to what I was thiking.  But really if you do custom the sky is the limit. You could even have the bodice of the jr bm dress rouged to match the body of your bm dresses.  

I wouldn’t do all of the Bridesmaid or Best Man custom though.. This adds a lot of stress.  If girls miss thier fittings (which they always do) then things get really tight as far as time goes.  If you ordered an extra bm dress your designer could use the fabrid for the details and you know it would match perfectly.  Then you just have to pick out the fabric for the body of the dress using your coral/peach accent color.

Good luck 🙂
