Is it *really* that weird if the flower girl doesn't drop flower petals?

It’s forbidden at my church and I’m sure it’s not uncommon. So I would so no, not that weird!

I was a flower girl in my aunt’s wedding.  I carried a basket of silk flowers instead of dropping any petals.

That is not at all odd.

My flower girl carried a beautiful pomander and didn’t “drop” anything.  (The real flower petals you see on the sides of the “aisle” were placed there before the wedding began.)

I’ve never actually seen a flower girl drop flowers so it’s not weird 🙂

The last wedding I went to the flower girls handed a daisy to each person sitting on the aisle.

Nope. A number of churches don’t allow it anymore because of the mess.

My DD/flowergirl carried an identical bouquet to mine… except hers was a bit smaller.

We are not allowed at our venue, so were having our flower girl carry a sign! Bought it off etsy.

 

 

 

 

and then we can use for photos after ceremony plus i wnat to hang it in our house!

 

( the first sign is the actual one we bought, and i LOVE it!)

No, our flower girl carried a flower ball (you know, one of those foam speres that look like a ball of flowers?). She was too young to drop petals, and the alternative was adorable!
