Apparently my church doesn’t really appreciate petals being thrown by the flower girl and says it’s a “safety hazard”. What can we do as an alternative? I guess she can just carry a little mini bouquet but it kind of seems like there’s no point… any ideas?

@whitandrior: There are many FGs that have carried a flower pomander. Or a ribbon wand.

I’ve seen kids carry “Here Comes The Bride” signs.

I love the pomanders, or I’ve seen some little girls with Pinwheels which I thought was adorable!
See this thread too

@whitandrior: My church is the same! I’m just having her carry a little bouquet, I alo thought what’s the point? But then I figured she’d still look cute in the pics? Lol

Thanks for the suggestions. Personally I hate those pomander balls and anything else is too silly. I guess I will go with a little bouquet and it will just be done as tradition and no other reason.

My flower girls (4) are going to carry ribbon rings. These are my variation of a ribbon wand, minus the stick which will surely result in someone getting a) whacked in the head or b) loosing an eye. My church doesn’t care if we use petals, but I wanted something a little different. So I used some old bangle bracelets and some ribbon/fabric flowers and voila!
This is not the best picture (it came off my phone). Also, please ignore the huge mess, Mama Griffin’s house is my wedding-craft headquarters.
Ooops: ignore my suggestion, didn’t see your last comment before I posted.

@sapphiregriffin: No worries, I like your idea! Kids and sticks can always be a little crazy!

We’re giving our flower girl a dozen single flowers (probably roses) and as she walks up the aisle, she’ll hand them out randomly to guests. She’s very outgoing, though, so it works well with her personality. She loves meeting people!

@MadameTussaud: Oh, I love that idea! I might suggest that to a few couples I know. Their kids are extremely outgoing.

@Blanche: this photo is priceless it made me envision our little girl walking down the aisle as our flower girl!
