Whom to choose: An adorable moppet, such as a cousin, a niece, a godchild, or a stepchild between the ages of three and six. Not to be confused with junior bridesmaids, who are older and wear tween versions of the bridesmaids’ dresses.
Job description: Scattering flower petals as she walks down the aisle. May be accompanied by the ring bearer.
