I got engaged over a year ago and my wedding is five months form now. When I got engaged it was a big family event with a lot of extended family around. Well, apparently on that day my mother promised my 16 year old cousin that she could be part of my bridal party. There problem is that I already have 10 people lined up for my bridesmaids, we been friends since middle school, and my fiancé only has five so adding more to my side seems unfair.
Now that my know my cousin has been looking forward to this for a year I can't take it away form her (I could just imagine how ecstatic I would have been when I was 16 to get a chance to dress up and wear a fancy dress) and I don't mind her being a part of the wedding I just need a role for her to play. I feel that Jr. bridesmaid and flower girl are for younger girls but there has got to be position for her.
Does anyone have any creative ideas they are doing or have seen done before?
