Forget the adults playing an important part in the wedding procession; the limelight clearly belongs to the Flower girls!!! After all, she does lead the way for the bride, showering her path with petals guiding her to her groom. That is a big job for a little girl to take on so it’s only fair that we show you some of the cuties that have had the honor of being a flower girl. Their styling is both inspirational and heart melting!
The flower girl, usually is an adorable little lady between the ages of three to eight, proceeds down the aisle just before the maid of honor, scattering rose petals as she goes. She can follow the ring bearer (if there is one), and sometimes she will even precede the bride. Traditionally, she totes a basket full of petals, but other alternatives include wrapped candies, + confetti. Also, instead of scattering items, she can carry a single bloom, a pomander, or an umbrella just her size. So many options for such an important girl! To include her in on the process you can ask her what she would prefer to do.
You can never underestimate the power of the "buddy system". We love the thought of having two flower girls or pairing up the ring bearer + the flower girl so that they can walk together, side by side. Partnering them up will give them the added confidence they need. All eyes are on them and it can be daunting!
Another helpful idea would be to seat the flower girl's parents toward the front of the ceremony so that she can focus on them and be encouraged by their big smiles! The very young flower girl should sit with her parents after she walks down the aisle. If the flower girl is a "poised little lady", she can be asked to stand at the alter with the other bridal party. How special will that make her feel!!!!
