Traditionally, before the maid of honor, a flower girl
Traditionally, before the maid of honor, a flower girl walks down the isle carrying rose petals. As she saunters down the isle, she gently tosses the rose petals as a symbolic gesture. The flower girl is the one of the most adorable parts of the ceremony. Everyone gasps at the precious girl in her mini gown as she welcomes everyone with her smile and presence.
Are you having trouble deciding who to ask to be a flower girl?
Are you having trouble deciding who to ask to be a flower girl? Who should you choose? Can you choose more then one little girl? All these questions may be swimming in your head. As you choose a flower girl, remember to make it someone that is between four and eight years old. Most brides have a family member or friend’s child. If you are having trouble deciding which one to choose, bend the rules a little and have two or three flower girls.
Find a flower girl dress that looks like a white gown with a satin bow
Find a flower girl dress that looks like a white gown with a satin bow. Her dress should compliment the bridesmaid dresses by having a matching bow. Incorporate your wedding colors in her bow, hairpiece, basket or what is being used to carry the petals. Confetti can also be used instead of rose petals. Perhaps your flower girl is very shy. You can have her just hold a single flower that matches the bouquets in your wedding. This way she can just concentrate on looking adorable and walking slowly down the isle.
If your flower girl doesn’t like dresses, a pant suit is also a nice choice
If your flower girl doesn’t like dresses, a pant suit is also a nice choice. Several places offer formal and feminine looking pant suits for these situations. Often many discuss having a buddy system of asking the ring bearer and the flower girl to walk down the isle together. Nerves will be eliminated if they have a friend walking with them instead of getting distracted by the attention.
Choose a flower girl that is close to your heart
Choose a flower girl that is close to your heart. Mentioned were friend’s children or family members. Perhaps a godchild or niece. If your friend is a bridesmaid, this may be advantageous to have her daughter as the flower girl. You are making the parents proud of their children and at the same time the parent can assist their precious child. Whether you choose one flower girl or more, each will be equally adorable and make your guests happy. Choose a special child to be a flower girl as she will a special touch to your already perfect day!
