12 Year Old Cousin Role?

I know this isn't a true crisis, but it is to me. The fiance and I are getting married this September and have already selected our wedding party (5 bridesmaids, 5 groomsmen, and 2 flower girls). Well, I just got off the phone with my mother who informed me my Uncle had shared that my little cousins feelings had gotten hurt, because she had not been asked to be in the wedding party. Now it's not that I am not close with this cousin, because I am! I love her death and would honestly do anything for her! The only reason I didn't ask her to be in the wedding party is because she is 12, and honestly it didn't even cross my mind that she would want to be.
Now I know most of you would just say make her a junior bridesmaid, problem solved, but my problem with that is I don't want her to walk down the aisle all by herself when everybody else has someone to walk with, and neither the Fiance or I have any younger male relatives She is the youngest cousin out of both families by about 12 years. So please HELP!!

  • Never mind awesome made of honor is awesome! Sometimes I swear I over think things. Easy solution have one groomsmen escort two bridesmaids, and this is why I chose her as a maid of honor!

  • I see you found a solution. The one groomsman with 2 bridesmaids is perfect. I was going to point out that her escort doesn't need to be her age. I was a bridesmaid at 11 and the groomsman I walked with was probably twice my age. All we did was walk out of the church together and stand next to each other in the receiving line. We didn't dance together or eat dinner together (of course part of that was because it wasn't that kind of reception).

    I would drop the Junior and just call her a bridesmaid.

    This is a nice solution.
