We’re having a very casual wedding and my sister has agreed to throw rose-petals before I walk down the aisle, technically making her a “flower girl”. The thing is – she’s 13 years old, and I don’t want her to feel like a baby, so I was trying to come up with a clever name for her on the wedding program besides “flower girl”.
I don’t want to call her a junior bridesmaid because we Fiance and I each only have 2 people standing up with us (2 MOH’s and 2 Best Men). Our ceremony space is small (no room for more ppl standing), so I just wanted her to be seated with my parents when she’s at the end of the aisle.
Creative bees – I need your help! What do you suggest?

Junior Bridesmaid or Best Man. That is what they normally are called at that age.

@Mrs Hedgehog: Thank you, but I was looking for an alternative to junior Bridesmaid or Best Man.

Junior Bridesmaid or Best Man was my answer too… Flower attendant? Love spreader? Petal princess? You could always just list her as “sister of the bride” in your program, not everyone requires a title.

at 13 she still is a girl, so calling her a flower girl doesnt make her a baby. Aside from flower girl and Junior Bridesmaid or Best Man I really cant think of anything else to call her

I am having my step sister as my “flower girl” and she is a teen. Im calling her my Flower Maid. She will be exactly like the Bridesmaid or Best Man (same dress and everything) but she will throw petals. It worked out this way because my mother insists that someone throw petals (its supposed to bless my path to the alter) and we are not having any young children. She’s still to old to be a jr Bridesmaid or Best Man plus i dont have a jr Groomsmen and i want it to be even.

@panterapeach: Ah, very good! 🙂 I’m thinking of the Flower Attendant or Flower Maid… Bloom Babe is just the kind of fun thing I was looking for, but wonder if her mom wouldn’t want her to be called a babe. haha!
@mzlouis2b: I am so glad to hear I am not the only one. I originally wasn’t going to have anyone walk down the aisle with them and instead, just have them already laid out on the runner before any of us come out – meaning everyone walks on the petals. I like being able to include my sister though and it prevents everyone from trampling my pretty petals.
