We are not having any flower girls, but I have friends that have a similar situation to you. They have 3 flower girls and 2 junior bridesmaids. Only one of the flower girls is in their own style dress (ivory) and then the other two are in a colored dress with sash. She then coordinated the 2 junior bridesmaids to have the opposite color sash and dress as the two flower girls if that makes sense. I think the 3 girls are still throwing petals and then 2 junior bridesmaids will have very small bouquets. You could consider doing something like that, where maybe they are all called flower girls but not all are throwing petals.

It’s your wedding- have as many flower girls as you want. 

One of the best memories I had as a little girl (age 6) was at my Aunt’s wedding.  We have a huge family and she didn’t want to leave any of the little ones out.  I was one of 11 flower girls and it was so much fun.

We will not have any bridesmaids or groomsmen. Right now, I was planning to have my 2 nieces as the flower girls (6 and 3.5) and my nephew (5) as the ring bearer. However, my fiancé has an 8 year old god daughter with a 5 year old sister. I think this will be the last chance for them to be flower girls, so would it be excessive to have 4 flower girls + 1 ring bearer & no adults in the wedding party?

We are having four. The Guy has four nieces and we couldn’t ask one or two without asking the rest. No matter what they do they’ll be cute, right?!

We have 5 flower girls and 2 ring bearers.  The girls will walk down in two sets of two and the extra girl will be walking with our little ring bearers since they are only 2. 

The Mister has 3 neices and a nephew and my cousin, who i am very close with, has two girls and a boy.  We had to have them all since all the girls understood what it was for us to get married and they knew there is a “flower girl” role that they ALL wanted (ages 4-7).  We figured what is one more boy with the rings!

Go for it! I am having 4 flower girls and a junior bridesmaid. I could not decide who to leave out and I didn’t want to crush any of the little girls. They are all going to be princesses in my wedding. All 4 flower girls will be wearing the same dress that they picked out together when we went shopping this weekend. They will have so much fun and look absolutely adorable.

I think it sounds like a really good idea.  As long as they’re excited about being included I think it’ll definately be something good.

we are having four flower girls… figured they can hold hands and come down the aisle together and it’ll be really cute.

three ring bearers, too, for us!

it’s a family affair, what can you do?

My only advice with having that many girls is to talk to your photographer. I am having 7 children in my wedding and I met a couple of photographers that were really put off by children in weddings. Thankfully I found one who I believe will be great with all of the kids.
