So, what exactly qualifies a junior bridesmaid? A junior bridesmaid is a member of the bridal party who is younger than your bridesmaids but older than the flower girl, usually in the 9 to 16 age range; she'll want a junior bridesmaid dress that plays into that. She's a bit young for some of the responsibilities and bridesmaid activities—cough, bachelorette party, cough—but too old for the juvenile role of flower girl; maybe she's a young teenage sister, sister-in-law, cousin or mentee. When it comes to fashion, she likely wants to wear what the older crew is wearing; she'll walk down the aisle and stand at the altar with the bridesmaids, so it makes sense to have her coordinated.

What Does a Junior Bridesmaid Wear?

When it comes to dressing junior bridesmaids, you should consider their age first and foremost, offering a style that is age-friendly. If the junior bridesmaid dresses are intended to match the adult bridesmaid dresses, adjustments can be made to make sure they're appropriate: adding a modesty panel for deep V-necklines, closing an open back, and adding straps to a strapless bodice. Another option is to keep the junior bridesmaids in the same color palette, but offer a more youthful take on the bridesmaids' dress—a shorter hemline, flouncier skirt, or bow embellishments—to differentiate the younger members.

Where to Buy Junior Bridesmaid Dresses

You can purchase junior bridesmaid dresses anywhere, of course—it doesn't have to be marketed as a junior bridesmaid dress to fit in with your party—but there are a handful of key retailers that specialize in the category.

  • Azazie: This bridesmaids behemoth offers a juniors collection, with each gown reminiscent of or similar to a coordinating adult style; slight alterations set the styles apart as youthful. So, if you're looking for cohesion throughout the whole party regardless of age, Azazie is a great starting point. Most gowns are sized from J6 to J16, and completely custom sizing is also available. As for color: They offer roughly 70 hues in most styles, so you're sure to find something to match your vision.

  • Revelry: While their selection isn't as massive, Revelry is similar to Azazie in that it offers junior bridesmaid dresses that coordinate with the adult collection. It also offer kids sizing in many of the gowns, so if you want to match your flower girl to the party, everyone can match. Junior sizing ranges from J6 to J18, and kids sizing is 2T to 5T.

  • David's Bridal: A go-to for all things bridal, David's Bridal is especially great for affordable options. With junior bridesmaids at peak growing age, it's even less likely that they'll rewear their gowns; therefore you may not want to spend as much. The wedding retailer offers frequent sales, so if you have time to wait check back to get the best price. Sizing on most junior bridesmaid styles ranges from J6 to J18.

  • Nordstrom: Of course, you don't have to select a gown made specifically for junior bridesmaids. If you're doing a chicly mismatched wedding party, your younger members will be free to find something that fits their style and size. Diverse retailers like Nordstrom are a great starting point for gowns that fit the bill, from floral frocks to solid stunners.

Dessy Collection Junior Bridesmaid Dress JR 543 in Blush Garden

Nearly every Dessy dress comes in a few dozen colorways, but we love the floral pattern of this one as a standout among a sea of solids. Plus, blush or rose palettes bring to mind garden settings, and this gown would fit right in. A modesty panel in the V-neck and fully lined skirt make it an appropriate choice for the whole party.

Zoe Girl's Willow Ribbed Metallic Dress

A pink so soft it's almost silver—metallic thread stitching all around enhances the shimmer—this dress offers unexpected structure in the cutest way. Short puff sleeves and a ruffle at the above-the-knee hemline are ultra-feminine. We see this working as a short option for a black-tie affair.

Lavender and Purple Junior Bridesmaid Dresses

Galawaqe Fancy Junior Bridesmaid Dress in Purple

high low chiffon dress with halter neck

Rewearing bridal party attire is always a consideration, but it's even more difficult to find re-wearable options for teenage members of the party, who may be mid-growth spurt. If junior bridesmaids dresses are going to be an item that you save on, rather than splurge on, look no further. This Amazon-sourced style is chic and sweet, in the prettiest purple shade. A subtle high-low hem hits at the knee.

Alfred Sung Junior Bridesmaid Style JR545 in Suede Rose

floor length satin gown with high neck

We love that you can combine two different colors in this one-piece gown: You're prompted to select the color for the satin bodice, then the skirt, separately. The monochromatic combo of suede rose on top and bottom is a pretty soft purple pick, but if you're leaning into jewel tones opt for the grape hue in one or both positions.

Urban Outfitters UO Tierra Chiffon Cowl Neck Asymmetrical Midi Dress in Lavender

high low chiffon dress with cowl neck

You've heard of high-low, but this hemline brings asymmetry to the side, with a soft chiffon ruffle panel trimming the satin dress. In lavender the floral pattern is soft and muted; another cool colorway features a bolder pattern of playful flowers and butterflies against a deep purple-brown hue.

a line satin dress with high neck

A high keyhole back adds interest to this otherwise straightforward style with a high neck and A-line skirt in smooth satin. But, it's the hue your guests will be talking about: modern Desert Coral adds a burst of fresh color to fall weddings.

Billabong True Romance Puff Sleeve Midi Dress in Sweet Chocolate

midi floor dress with short blouson sleeves

For perfectly mismatched wedding parties, we love this prairie floral set against a deep terracotta orange. It's lightweight enough for summer weddings, but the mid-calf hem and blouson sleeves transition seamlessly to fall weddings. Post-nuptials, your junior can dress it down with sneakers to wear over and over all season long.

Baltic Born Andi Ribbed Velvet Wrap Dress in Copper

floor length velvet wrap dress with short sleeves

Wrap dresses make shopping for a variety of sizes easy, and this one doubles down by coming in sizes from XS-XXXL. Its mid-weight velvet works in a variety of seasons, and short flutter sleeves add coverage.

Urban Outfitters UO Mallory Satin Maxi Dress

maxi dress with cowl neck and spaghetti straps

A signature UO style, the Mallory dress has a short maxi silhouette hitting just above the ankles, and a cowl neck. A slit at the back keeps it modest but makes walking down the aisle a little easier in the slim-fitting style.
