The youngest flower girl I’ve seen at a wedding was 2 years old. She was very unpredictable. At the rehersal, she stomped reluctantly down the aisle with the sourest look I’ve ever seen on a human face. At the actual wedding she took off running down the aisle (at least she smiled this time though, lol).

Usually I would say 10 is a little too old for flower girl and suggest making her a junior bridesmaid or having her do a reading instead, but in this case why not make them both flower girls and have them walk down the aisle together? The older one can keep the little one in check and it will give her a sense of responsibility.

It’s your wedding, have whatever age you want ๐Ÿ™‚  Don’t get too hung up on what the “norm” is, do what makes you happy on your special day ๐Ÿ™‚

i would only say the ‘norm’ will be represented by the dresses avaliable to you. for your baby cousin you might want to look at christining or batism dresses and for your sister you might want to look at junior bridesmaid dresses. but what you call them at your wedding is completely up to you. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been to a wedding with a flower girl that was around 12 month/ just walking.  It was super cute, but you have to expect that she wouldn’t understand what she is doing.  I this instance her father stood at the end of the aisle with a big stuffed animal of hers to coax her down the aisle.  I would make the 10 year old a jr. Bridesmaid and have her help the younger one down the aisle.

We’re having an 11 year old for a glower girl. ๐Ÿ™‚  Not “normal” but who cares?  Since we’re not “normal” it’s not going to shock anyone we know.  Besides it will make this little girl super happy, and I don’t think she’s ever been to a wedding.  She begged to be one, which sounds silly but her family has been like my own since I moved here.  FI said “if it makes her happy, I don’t care, why not”.  Why not indeed!

I would ask the 10 year old how she feels about it. I was a flower girl at 10 and 12. At 10 I was ok, but at 12 I was super embarrassed and felt like I was too old to be a flower girl. I was forced in to it because I was the only little girl in the family and my younger brother was the ring bearer in both weddings.

I say pick whoever you want.  You may have a harder time finding a “flower girl” dress though because one of your picks is under the usual age and one is above it.  I don’t think that should deter you though.  

My youngest flower girl is my little sister and she’s 2.  And let me tell you, once you see the little one in a flower girl dress you won’t care if she won’t walk down the aisle.  Just having her all dolled up is already special and adorable enough LOL.  If my sister walks down the aisle it will be amazing LOL

I have 2 10-year old flower girls, but instead of the traditional flower baskets, I’m thinking of having them carry wands instead. We wanted to include them both in our wedding, but I didn’t want them as junior BMs.
