So my cousin and I are really close, she’s a bridesmaid in my wedding. She has a daughter who will be two right before my wedding. So I said she could be my flower girl (of which I previously did not want, because I wasn’t planning on having young kids at the wedding) I love her lots but she is the most poorly behaved kid. She screams, throws things, etc. She has her good times but she has no discipline. Anyways I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to help flower girls understand what to do (she’s walking down with my fiances 12 year old sister) Also any table activities she could do at the reception? I know nothing about kids and I’m trying not to say anything because I don’t want to offend my cousin.

There are videos on You Tube you could watch with her. Just make sure you pick one where the flower girl is behaving.

One of my friends had color books, crayons and lolipops for the kids at the reception.

Unfortunately, I think at age two, no matter how much you try to prepare her for walking down the aisle, she’ll do what she wants when the time comes.

I have the same feelings as @strawbabies. I think the best thing to do is have absolutely no expectations of the 2 year old (I think the youtube videos are a great idea though), and if she happens to be an adorable flower girl at your wedding, awesome! If not, at least you weren’t banking on her doing a great job, right?
