If you don’t want her to be a bridesmaid or junior maid, maybe have her be an usher? I think it would be nice if you could have her be a Bridesmaid or Best Man, especially since your other cousin is. However, I understand that you two aren’t close. Sorry, I am not much help!

What about having her be a Junior Maid. She could pass out the programs, direct everyone to the guestbook, and to their seats.

Don’t feel bad about this for a second. If you want to include her somehow, try to find a way (handing out programs, etc), but don’t ask her to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man out of guilt. I’ve been to plenty of weddings where only one cousin is in the bridal party, and that’s because they are close to the bride or groom and the other cousins aren’t. You are so far apart in age that I don’t know if she’d be comfortable being your Bridesmaid or Best Man to begin with. I say go with the friend, because ultimately the people standing up there with you should be people you really want in your party.

I would put her in charge of the guest book anyways but put her in the same dress, jewelry, and shoes as the bridesmaids.. have her in pics too. That way she is included but not technically a bridesmaid!
