I would just skip having one rather than try to find a replacement.  We didn’t have a flower girl in our wedding… it’s no big deal.  You may even just want to still list her as your flower girl in your program and note that she’s not in attendance.

Do whatever you want.  If you want a lil flower girl there?  I don’t think its like a bridesmaid and you have 5 months.  You will be fine.  My only advice is, make sure you only ask someone who’s parents you planned on inviting to the wedding and who you know will come.

I wouldn’t worry about it. We aren’t having a ring bearer because we don’t know any little boys around my nieces’ age. In all honesty I can’t even remember who had flower girls/ring bearers in their ceremony and who didn’t (except the one where there were 16 flower girls and no ring bearers. It was weird).

I’d just skip the flowergirl. 

Sorry you’re dealing with this!

I’d skip it unless there is actually someone you want to be the flower girl.

5 months is enough time that I don’t think the person would think they’re second string.  If there’s someone you want to ask, then ask.  But I wouldn’t just ask someone random bc they’re the right age, and you’ve gotten used to the idea of having a flower girl.

Unless there is another little girl you would love to ask, I would skip it!
