        Ladies!

        Thank you so much for your input.

        I thought about the Jr. Bridesmaid title but I held back for one reason.

        I really want to include her in the wedding but I'm hesitant to give her a Jr. BM title because I have other cousins that I'm a bit closer to (mainly just because we are closer in age) and I don't want them to feel left out. It might be weird if I pick my 9 yr old cousin as a Jr. BM but not my 15 or 18 yr old cousins too.

        I think Bride Helper might work better for my situation.

          I like Bride Helper... in your situation, I agree that it seems like the right thing to do.

I am so excited to have her help out but I think she may be too old to be a flower girl so I was going to have her help with passing out parasols and programs during the ceremony. I want to include her name in the program as well so I would like to give her a title but I don't know what to call her.

            She is too old to be a flower girl and too young for a Jr. Bridesmaids. Any suggestions?
            i say just call her a flower girl anyway. who made the rules as far as who is too old to be what anyway? is a 9 yr old not still a "girl"? it seems to me that for a destination wedding, all "rules" go out the window anyway. my flower girl will be 7, and my ringbearer 9 i think? and honestly, i feel like if anyone would sit there all gossippy and rude like, "omg, i can't believe her 'flower girl' is so OLD" then they've got problems, ya know? LOL. if she's not really handling flowers of course then maybe something different is in order, but other than that do what you want! maybe the spanish words for it are cool sounding? senorita de flores? (not sure if that's right LOL)

                Mummergirl, you made me smile. You are so right and thanks for putting it in perspective for me. When it comes down to it I guess it really is not such a big deal to call her "flower girl" and yes you are right people won't point the finger and talk. It's funny how we get so caught up in planning every detail that we start to emphasize the little stuff.

                Anyhow, I think what I will do is ask her what name she would prefer. I will give her the Flower Girl and Bride Helper title and see which one she would like and let her pick.

                  i like the idea of letting her pick ... it will make her feel all the more special.

                  i guess i really didn't care about the age of my flowergirl and ringbearer since my brides"maids" are my sisters who will be 50 and 49 at the time of my wedding! hell, i'm the "bride" and i'm 36, so my whole entire age scale is WAY OFF the norm! LOL
