Your bridal crew has some of the most important and closest gals in your life. Both close family or friends, these ladies mean the most and you couldn't imagine your wedding without them by your side. Every bridal party is a special group and some include junior bridesmaids.
While shopping for bridesmaid dresses, it can be challenging to find a cohesive look, especially with different age groups. Sometimes younger bridesmaids are overlooked in stores and end up needing to alter an adult bridesmaid dress - although it works, it's not ideal. That's why we're so excited to share that we offer a special Junior Bridesmaid Dress Collection!

What is the Role of a Junior Bridesmaid?
A junior bridesmaid is a role that's common for brides with younger siblings, nieces, cousins, or other close family members. It's a special way to include younger members of your family or close friends while not adding too much stress. Usually, junior bridesmaids are older that the average flower girl age and younger than your bridesmaids. The common ages for junior bridesmaids are between 9-15 years old. While they are a part of your bridal party, it is up to your preference of what their wedding day role will entail. Depending on wedding morning activities or the head table situation for example, you can decide what will work best for you and for them.
Coordinate vs. Mix-and-Match Junior Bridesmaids With Your Bridal Party
While you're planning out your bridesmaids' dresses you'll need to decide how you would like to coordinate the bridal party. Think about whether or not you would like your bridesmaids to all wear the same dress, or if your junior bridesmaids will have their own style. Some brides prefer a similar look and others want a completely different style- both are perfectly fine! It's important to note that it can be tricky to pick out dress styles for someone younger than your bridesmaids, and to find something that pairs well with style and color.
When you shop at Kennedy Blue, you can rest assured that you will find the best dress for your bridesmaids and younger bridesmaids. The Kennedy Blue Junior Bridesmaid Collection features nine unique dress styles that pair well with our Kennedy Blue Bridesmaid Collection. Your junior bridesmaids can be included with a KB dress that's perfect for them with the best fit!
