Junior Bridesmaid Dresses

In a traditional wedding entourage, junior bridesmaids and flower girls are a fixture. They play a significant role in the occasion and a great deal of thought is put in choosing them. Junior bridesmaids are generally between 9 to 14 years old. Junior bridesmaids are too old to be flower girls yet too young to be bridesmaids.

  • Although they may be too young to plan and organize a bridal shower, junior bridesmaids are expected to attend and provide assistance during the preparations and after the main event.
  • Accompany the bride to shop for a wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses and provide some suggestions.

As with other members of the wedding party entourage, a great attention is also given to the dresses of junior bridesmaids. The clothing, design, and color selection are entirely the choice of a bride. It is expected that the junior bridesmaid dresses will have the same textile and color with that of the bridesmaids and flower girls. However, the designs may vary and should be appropriate for their age. Most brides really enjoy selecting the junior bridesmaid dresses due to the fact that the audience is enamored with how adorable these young ladies look helping in the wedding.

All About Flower Girls

The primary duty of a flower girl is to scatter flower petals as they walk down the aisle to the altar during a wedding procession. They are usually in 3 to 10 age range. Traditionally, flower girls are paired with ring bearers.

The presence of flower girls in a wedding ceremony symbolizes the innocence of the bride as a child. The flower girl also symbolically leads the bride from childhood to womanhood, from innocence to being a wife and mother.

Flower Girls in History

The earliest recorded history of the presence of flower girls during weddings was the Roman Empire. The Renaissance was also a period when flower girls were commonly used during weddings. The significance of using flower girls who were young virgins that carried with them a sheaf of wheat during the ceremony was to bring prosperity to the couple. Strands of garlic were another items carried by flower girls to ward off evil spirits and bad luck.

The scattering of flower petals from the home of the bride to the church was first recorded during the Elizabethan era. The modern look for flower girls started in the Victorian era who wore the traditional white dresses with colored sash. They carried a basket containing fresh flowers.

Usually, the flower girl dresses are miniature imitations of the actual wedding bridesmaid dresses.
