I’m having my 2 yr old niece be the flower girl in my wedding but we’re not sure if she’s going to be okay walking down the aisle by herself and her mom may end up escorting her.
If that’s the case, what should her mom wear? Should she be in the bridal party colors or wear whatever she wants?
Bees that have done that before, what did you do? Any pictures?

I PERSONALLY would want her to blend in, so I would put her in one of the wedding colors.

Last year I escorted my 2 yr old niece down the aisle. I picked out my own dress that matched the colors/style of the wedding and it looked fine in photos

You can ask her to wear something that “matches” a bit, but personally I’d just tell her to wear whatever she wants – it’s not an important enough role to force her into a dress she might not have picked out herself.

As long as the woman is good at dressing herself on a regular basis, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. All eyes will be on the 2 year old as at that small they are adorable!
If she is looking for suggestions, I would say something either in your wedding colors or something in black. Either one won’t stand out that much.

She should just dress nicely, that’s all. She’s not part of the wedding so she doesn’t need to coordinate. All eyes will be on the neice. I was recently in a wedding where the nanny had to help the flower girl down the aisle (both parents were attendants in the wedding) and I don’t think anyone had a second thought about what she was wearing.

Thanks ladies! I think I’ll ask her to wear a shade in the wedding colors 🙂

If she’s not in the wedding party she should be expected to dress herself like any other guest, including the honored ones or the hosts. Mothers and grandmothers pick their own dresses, in whatever color they choose, as well.

Just an FYI! When my LO was 13 months and 18 months and a flower girl , her dad would let her loose at the end of the aisle and I would crouch down by the front pew. And she would motor down the aisle to me unassisted and happy as a clam. And I could have been wearing a paper bag because I was not in the procession or in the photos! Maybe that will work for you.
