It is becoming more common to include tweens in weddings. Flower girls and ring bearers have always been part of weddings when there are toddlers in the families. They are unpredictable and cute and everyone knows to expect the unexpected.

But when the child is over the age of 8 and under the age of 13, there are few options on how to include them in the ceremony. This is where the junior bridesmaid and junior groomsman comes into play.

Include Your Junior Bridesmaid & Groomsman in Your Wedding

When including a tween in your wedding it is important to treat them as you would any other member of the bridal party. Of course, they cannot attend adult parties, but they can be included with shopping, rehearsals, showers, and other wedding related activities. They can go with the groups to have their hair styled and their clothes fitted.

Role of The Junior Bridesmaid
The junior bridesmaid role can be designed any way the bride chooses. The most modern trend is for the junior bridesmaid to put on a performance before the ceremony in song or recital. She then walks from the stage and stands at the end of the bridesmaid row and the adults fill the row as they arrive from their walk down the aisle.

Include Your Junior Bridesmaid & Groomsman in Your Wedding

Another option is allowing the junior bridesmaid to put on a dance performance at the reception. She assumes the same role as the bridesmaids during the wedding but at the reception, she begins the dance time with a modern dance. There are many available Outfits For Dancers.  With the help of some cool lighting and the DJ, she can open the dance floor with a great number.

Adding the Junior Groomsman in the act
The Junior groomsman helps to seat the guests. He can be included in the song or recital and if he can be given a part in the dance performance even if he does not take dance. The juniors can wear their costumes and he can easily be taught a few steps to complement the routine.

While the bride who includes juniors in her wedding is a usually a more laid-back person, she doesn't sacrifice style for convenience. Technology has come a long way in the bridal industry. Brides can easily find the perfect wedding Dresses Online.  This major bridal industry leader also allows bridesmaids to put down a small deposit and have a dress shipped to them so they can try on the selection in the comfort of their own home. They have the option to return the dress and try again if the gown is not to her liking.

The bridal party has access to the styles, colors, quality, and embellishments online just as they would have if they went to the location.

The Juniors clothes
The junior bridesmaid will wear a dress of the same color and cut as the bridesmaids with age-appropriate changes. For example, she will wear straps rather than a bare shoulder gown. The bridesmaid’s gowns may be floor length, but you may consider a tea length dress for her to make it easier to walk. Of course, she will wear pumps or flats, not high heels.

The Junior groomsmen will wear the same suit or tux as the adult men in the wedding, though he may be allowed to remove his jacket and wear his vest while he is “working”.
Responsibilities for the Junior Bridesmaid & Groomsman
Here are some jobs that your juniors can easily take care of:
  • Passing out programs
  • Assisting the ushers in seating grandparents and guests
  • Be in charge of the guestbook
  • Pass out bubbies, confetti or rice to shower the exciting couple
  • Help with cleaning up

Fun extras
After the wedding, give your junior bridesmaid and groomsman a digital or instant camera and let her take pictures. A digital camera will take the most pictures without the expense of the special film for the instant camera. The camera and a photo album will make a great “thank you” gift and you might be surprised at some of the great pictures they take.

The “not a good idea” list
Here are some things that you will not ask a junior bridesmaid and groomsman to do:

  • Babysit for guests
    • If someone has brought their child and the juniors want to play with him, that is fine. But do not ask her to be responsible for a young child in a venue full of people. Do not expect them to supervise toddlers outside and do not give them the responsibility of keeping the other children safe from the parking areas.
  • Be the maid
    • Sure, they can help tidy up but it should not be their job. If you would not as your maid of honor to clean up a mess, do not as your juniors to. They are not hired help.

Finally, thank them for their efforts. Whether things went perfectly or not, let them know how great they were and how much they added to the special day. Make this an event they will never forget.
Dressing up your baby and toddler has to be the most fun part of the day. From the soft material of Baby Clothing to the adorable prints and patterns, just looking at them is enough to melt your heart. The best thing is that you get to dress them however you like, though this won’t last for long! Winters can be a tricky season to dress your child, as they may not feel as cold as you are feeling. As a mom, it is but natural that you’d be extra-protective for your child and layer him up. Layering up your naughty bundle does not mean that you have to lose out on style, too!

6 Interesting Ways to Dress Your Son for Winters

Dressing for Winters
We all know the basics of dressing up our baby for winters. Layering is the way to go. However, when you are layering your child, make sure you don’t over do it. Three layers are good enough for your child. The first/ base layer should be wool, the second layer should be wool or fleece and the last layer should be an outerwear such as a water-proof jacket. Avoid cotton pants and jeans and make sure you have caps, mitts and a scarf for your child.

Dungarees are Always Awesome!
One of the most practical and comfortable outfit for your little one is a good pair of dungarees. Traditionally, dungarees always come in denim; however they are available in corduroy and jersey as well. Corduroy and jersey are better options for winter season. From skinny style to a flared style and a whole range of colors, you have a lot to choose from. Pair the dungarees with a full-sleeves shirt in a bright color and layer with a sleeveless jacket to complete the look. Make sure your child is wearing a base layer inside. Remember you can always remove the jacket, if it gets too much. Dungarees look great with ankle-boots.

Flannel Jeans and a Checkered Shirt!
With winters in full throttle, flannel-lined jeans with a ribbed waist are surely going to keep your baby warm. A base layer of either a sleeveless or full-sleeves body-suit will ensure that the chest and back remain covered. Pair the jeans with a red-checkered shirt and a fur-trimmed, sleeveless jacket in dark blue. Since we have introduced fur in the jacket, Sherpa-lined ankle boots will look absolutely cool and complete the look. Make sure you have a pair of mitts!
Denim All the Way!
Denim is never out of fashion, but as we mentioned earlier, denim does not necessarily keep your child warm. So opt for fleece-lined denim jeans and a jacket. Pair it with a colorful striped, full-sleeves T-shirt and a scarf! A beanie in dark blue or matching striped pattern will give an extra oomph to the outfit, besides covering your little one’s head! Denim always looks great with tennis shoes, but make sure your child is wearing warm socks with it!

6 Interesting Ways to Dress Your Son for Winters

Khakis with an Olive Jacket
A winter is about warm colors and it is no surprise that khaki pants make our list of trendy winter outfits. Khaki pants generally come in cotton, but for winters we have the option of corduroy. Corduroy khakis may look dull for winters, but you can warm them up with full-sleeves rust colored t-shirt and then pair it off with an olive-colored jacket. Add a scarf and a beanie to complete the look. Ankle-boots in a darker shade will further enhance the khaki color.

A Layered Button-down Shirt!
We all know that it is winters and it will be quite cold, but that doesn’t mean your little man can’t take a fashion risk. Layering is the key to this look. First of all, make sure there is a warm base layer and the chest is completely protected. A thermal in neutral color will work just as fine. Opt for a checkered button down shirt and don’t button it. Layer it with a warm button-down sweater in a color that goes with the shirt. Keep the buttons open. Pair it with flannel-lined denim jeans, a scarf tied loosely around the neck and hiker boots.

The Smart-Casual Look
It is never easy to dress up an active toddler in a bow and tie, so we have come up with a smart- casual look for your little man. All you need is pair of pants in a neutral color and mix and match with a checkered shirt and a full-sleeves sweater. When you put on the sweater, make sure, you turn up the sleeves of the sweater, a little bit, to give a glimpse of the checkered shirt. The collar and hem of the shirt should be exposed. Pair the outfit with duck boots to complete this look!

Dressing up is Always Fun and More So, if it is Your Little One! So have Fun Styling him for Winters!
