Should junior bridesmaids pay for a bridal shower?

Bridal Shower Etiquette 
Q: Does the junior bridesmaid have to pay for the bridal shower?

A: Junior bridesmaids, who are between the age of 9 to 14 years old, are not expected to throw or pay for wedding showers.  It's unreasonable to expect a girl that young to pay when she realistically can't even work.  However, the junior bridesmaid definitely could be invited to the bridal shower, depending on her age, maturity, and the theme.  If the junior bridesmaid is old enough to, then she could help out with other parts of the shower rather than simply paying by helping set-up, make favors, and make food.
