So you’ve decided to make your daughter a junior bridesmaid for your wedding. Good for you because she’s a little too old to be a flower girl and she definitely wants to be part of the wedding.
Are you worried about what she should and should not be invited to regarding the wedding? Maybe you’re concerned about having her come to the bachelorette party? That’s obviously something to think strongly about depending on the type a party it’s going to be.
Should she come to the wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner? Are there other responsibilities that she needs to be a part of? We’ll answer all of these questions and a few more below.
As far as bridesmaid dresses are concerned, your bridesmaids need to have synced up matching outfits. If you have more than one junior bridesmaid, they can wear dresses for younger girls while the older bridesmaids wear different color dresses specifically designed for women. You can find a plethora of great options online like this one here.
So, if you’re struggling to determine what your daughter should do as a junior bridesmaid, please keep reading. We’ll fill you in on the important activities and responsibilities that she should be a part of.
1. Allow Your Junior Bridesmaid Daughter to Attend All Wedding Parties (Except Maybe One)
Having a daughter as a junior bridesmaid is a great idea. But you want to focus on making sure she becomes a part of the wedding. Otherwise, she might feel left out and you don’t want to make her feel sad on this happy occasion.
So make sure she is allowed to attend all of the pre-wedding parties. The only potential exception is the bachelorette party. If you know the bachelorette party is going to be a wild and crazy night, there is no way your young daughter should witness the crazy fun festivities that you and the girls are going to certainly enjoy.
Just remember to host parties that are appropriate for young people like your daughter. Remember, you’ll want her there to do things for you as well like keeping track of gifts, setting up and cleaning up, making party favors, and more. She’ll be happy just to be part of the evening, so be prepared to have a happy helper on your hands! It might seem far-fetched but you’ll see.
2. Take Your Junior Bridesmaid Daughter with You While Wedding Dress Shopping
Do you want to make your young daughter feel extra special during your wedding? Allow her to use her knowledge of wedding gowns and bridesmaid dress trends to your advantage. Let her go wedding dress shopping with you and let her help pick out the bridesmaid gowns, the gowns for the junior bridesmaids, and the wedding gown itself.
She’ll be ecstatic if you let her help you pick these beautiful dresses. You’ll really make her day and she’ll feel like a big part of the wedding if you let her help you with this major responsibility.
3. Let Your Daughter the Junior Bridesmaid Attend the Ceremony Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner
Your daughter is going to be a big part of the wedding, right? So it only makes sense to have her attend the ceremony rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. It’s going to be fun and exciting for her and everyone in attendance.
Plus she’ll be able to sit down to a scrumptious dinner after the rehearsal, which will allow her to wind down, get comfortable, and prepare for the big day. Show your daughter the VIP treatment at this event and she’ll love you even more than she already does!
Your daughter is going to flip head over heels to be your junior bridesmaid at the wedding. She’ll love the pre-wedding and post wedding responsibilities that you give her. She’ll feel older, more responsible, and much happier to be a big part of your amazing wedding ceremony and reception.
So make sure your daughter is involved in everything that you literally feel comfortable having her involved in. Let her attend the wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, all pre-wedding and post-wedding parties and even the bachelorette party if it’s going to be a tame event.
She’ll appreciate every moment of it and you’ll make your daughter so extremely happy at the same time. And that’s what we all want, right?
