    My flower girl was actually the exact same age as your younger one.  She did great during the practice and kept wanting to practice.  The church part she cried, but walked down the aisle as she was crying.  The church doors slamming closed behind her just scared her, poor thing.

    We just got married in August and our flower girl was just 18 months old.  We had her walk down with a bridemaid that she had met the night before at our rehearsal. She did a wonderful job.  She did not however want to carry her pomander ball, she wanted the bridemaids flowers.

    No, I don’t think she’s too young to be included. In fact, since you have the 7 year old, hopefully it will help the little one with what to do. And she is going to be SOO cute!

    I will have my cousin who will be 6 and my niece who will be about 3.5. I think the little one will be fine as long as the older one guides her along.  Practice with her, and try to make it fun for her. Hopefully you won’t have any problems 🙂

    No I don’t think it is too young either. If anything were to happen- I am sure it will lighten the mood!

    My sister was a flower girl (many, MANY yrs ago) the same age your flower girl is.  So long as my sister saw my mom- everything would be fine. Which was true… except my sister saw my mom way down at the end of the aisle and bee-lined right for her. My sister ran down the aisle with an exclamation of ‘mommy!’. The entire church let out a little "awwwww". It was a pretty memorable moment.
