Are you having grown up bridesmaids for your wedding – but no little ones? It seems more and more of us are having grown up maids instead of asking our younger sisters, nieces and little cousins. Could this be a bit of an emerging trend for UK weddings, and if so, why?

Has somebody written an article somewhere that says “Steer clear of small maids”?!

Jo from Driftwood and Daisies Flower Company emailed me a little while ago and mentioned that only two of her brides had chosen small bridesmaids and/or flower girls, the others are all having three or four adult maids instead.

“It is a real shame if this is happening up and down the country as I do feel the pretty flower girls and maids do add a sense of innocence to the day and if captured well provide some fabulous images for the wedding album that adult bridesmaids could never achieve.”
