I was 10 and I was a flower girl at a wedding.  I don’t think it’s too young…  I’m not sure what else she could do, unless she has a talent like singing or piano.

@jaia07:  I was about that age when I was a flower girl its not too young or old. I was in charge of the train on the dress. It was a traditional full mass ceremony so alot of standing sitting kneeling. So I would fan her train out when it needed.

Could you consider having her do a reading? We’re having FI’s 10 year old nephew read a short poem.

I’m in the same situation! But mine will be turning 11 by the wedding! and i will also have a 1.5 yr old flower girl. Im giving the older one the responsability of getting the younger one down the isle, and she will also hold the rings. (no ringbarer)

My nieces are flower girls and are around the same age. My neices will walk out with their brothers (who are the ring bearers) and then go sit with the grandparents. Basically, they are “in” the wedding, but don’t have to stand up there the whole time.

I have 2 cousins who will be 11 & 13. I dont want jr bridesmaids, so they’re going to hand out the programs & favors as guests arrive to the ceremony. They’ll have matching dresses too 🙂

On a flower girl note- i’m having my 2 grandmothers as my flower girls! I haven’t asked them yet, so i hope they say yes, bc how adorbs will that be?? lol

@mswilson1721:  I think that crossing back over would be a little hard to do, what with the timing of you walking and her getting back over. I would have her stop just prior to the bridge or you could have her stand up with your bridal party; she’s old enough to handle that.
