Where to Find Junior Bridesmaid Dresses
Junior bridesmaids and their attire can sometimes get overlooked in the roles between flower girl and bridesmaid. This junior age group is usually rapidly growing, so getting a dress in the right style and with room to grow up until the wedding date is especially important!
The exact definition of a junior bridesmaid is a bit dynamic and really up to the couple picking the wedding party. Usually, it's a family member or dear friend of the couple in the age group of about 9 or 10 up to 16. Fortunately, if you are seeking a junior bridesmaid dress, you have several shopping options for age-appropriate wedding attire. Here are some of the best selections of dresses for junior bridesmaids we've found.

Azazie is known for made-to-measure bridesmaid dresses which make fitting for your wedding party a breeze. Their made-to-measure feature is perfect for sizing ever-growing junior attendants. In fact, we did an at-home try-on and review of Azazie dresses a few years ago. Azazie also has one of the largest ranges of colors and fabric, and nearly endless combinations of necklines, sleeves, and lengths. This brand's selection of junior dresses is also at a perfect price point, with most dresses under $70, and several under $60 and $50! When we last checked, there were 167 styles to choose from for these affordable and stylish junior bridesmaids' dresses and about 60+ colors.
It's probably no surprise that one of the top places to find wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses also carries dresses for junior bridesmaids. David's Bridal has locations nationwide in the US. So if you're shopping for bridesmaid dresses at David's, you might want to bring along your junior bridesmaids as well so that they can join in the fun of shopping. David's Bridal also offers junior bridesmaid dresses online. Therefore, if your junior attendant is in another state or city, they can order online or try on at a in-store location nearest their home. We love that David's Bridal offers perfectly -scaled-down versions of many of their popular bridesmaid dress styles and that they offer junior bridesmaid dresses in their wide selection of colors and fabrics.
Dessy is one of the most respected names in bridesmaid dresses. Many wedding boutiques carry this line. That's likely because of their vast selection of dresses for bridesmaids, coordinating formal wear, and their long-standing brand excellence. Dessy's selection of junior bridesmaid dresses is unique with details and upscale styling. The price point is about $220 and the styles are completely elegant, unique, and modern and coordinate well with the bridesmaid dresses offered by Dessy. We especially love the special attention to design details and fabrics like velvet, floral, and satin options.

More Junior Bridesmaid Tips
We often see flower girl dresses in all white, or party dress styles that aren't identical to the bridesmaid dresses. However, junior bridesmaid dresses usually do echo the style and color of the main bridesmaid dresses in some way.
Depending on your preference; you may choose to have the junior dresses exactly match the bridesmaid dresses, the flower girl dresses, or to have a distinct style.
If the wedding is over a year or several months away, it can be a good idea to buy the junior bridesmaid dress in a size for the wearer to grow into. It's always easier to have taken in if needed. And, if a junior dress just simply isn't available to match, you may wish to see if your tailor can alter a bridesmaid dress for the junior bridesmaid.
