When you're planning your wedding, you're sure to have a lot of questions about finding the right wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses, mother-of-the bride attire, and more. That's why our etiquette experts are here to answer all of your fashion-related questions.

What should my junior bridesmaid wear?

Junior bridesmaids usually wear an age-appropriate version of the bridesmaids' gown—which means no low-cut necklines or high slits. If the big girls are going strapless, your junior bridesmaid could sport capped sleeves. If they're wearing slinky slip dresses, put her in an A-line dress style with skinny straps. And if you're still in doubt about a suitable look for your her, the smartest thing to do is to ask an expert—her mother—for suggestions.
