My youngest sister is only eleven years old, but I didn't want to make her a junior bridesmaid. Heck, she will be taller than most of my bridesmaids! (She is a fabulous basketball player).
I was afraid she would be offended that the other sisters were Maid/Matrons of Honor, while she would be a bridesmaid. When she asked me what the difference between the two is, I responded,
"The Maids of Honor have to hold up the bride's dress when she goes the bathroom."
My youngest sister was suddenly very okay with the idea of being a bridesmaid. :)
I could help but think of that exchange when I saw this photo on Wedding Cabaret - love it!
