Fiance and I just had a meeting at our church for our 12/3/11 wedding. We were told tonight that our flower girl can’t throw petals down the isle because a priest slipped on a petal that wasnt picked up and fell. Fiance and I have already picked a flower girl and she is totally excited.
We are looking for some ideas on what she can do as shes walking down the isle, we still want to incorporate flowers somehow. Any ideas would be so helpful and I know a lot bees always have such great ideas and imput.

What about having her wave a ribbon wand? You would make one with alot of ribbons. I have also seen them pull a wagon with decorations in it, or ride a trike down the aisle.

When I am doing flowers for a wedding at a church that can’t have petals, I usually just do a small arrangement in a flowergirl basket or make a tiny bouquet for the flowergirl. The ribbon wand is also a good idea! Flower wants (made with silks) are also super popular right now. 🙂

I’d do a wand or small floral too. Lots of times in their excitement they forget to throw them anyway!

The wand is a very cute idea! Have them carry a basket still or a pomander is cute too. Just smile and look cute. Great job to have!

Mine can’t either! We’re giving her an unwrapped bouquet, and she’s going to hand a flower to random people sitting along the aisle. 😀
I think I might make an extra bouquet so she can take one home, though. Not really sure if that matters to her/them. (We have one “yes” and one “maybe”.)

We couldn’t either, my flower girl carried a pomander, it had the same flowers of the bridesmaids bouquets and she loved it!

We had a “ring princess” instead of a flower girl; she carried a starfish wand with the rings tied to the ribbons. I thought she might be disappointed when we told her no petals, but she was absolutely thrilled to be a “princess”! LOL
This was on the beach, so very appropriate – I’ve also seen some beautiful flower wands…
Here’s what our “ring princess” carried:
Here’s a flower girl wand from etsy.com – these are artificial flowers, but I’ve also seen them made with fresh flowers:

My aunt’s flower girl threw sparkles–of course there was a cleaning fee for that.

Mine handed out long stemmed roses to people. 🙂
It worked out really well and she was thrilled to be doing something different then she did at the last wedding she was flower girl in. 🙂

Can she blow Bubbles down the Aisle? or even just blow kisses to people? I have been trying to deicde wether to have a “ring princess” and a flower girl, I still haven’t decided yet, but I have two girls and no boys so they may may not have different jobs.

@dodgercpkl:Awesome! I’ve never seen anyone do this, but this *exactly* what I want mine to do. Thanks so much for sharing it!
