no harm, and could be cute. Just be prepared that they may be rather fidgety. I’ve been to weddings where the kids have run after their parents- they got a little overwhelemed by all the people around.

@Daenaria727:  I don’t think there is any harm at all. I had two flower girls and they were adorable.

I don’t know how a person is supposed to choose!

@Daenaria727:  kids will be kids! 

Honestly, for me, Im not worried about the shenaigans. It’s part of life and I think if you don’t let it stress you out, it won’t make much of a difference. Besides, kids make weddings exciting and unpredictable !

I’m having two, never thought twice about that being weird.  I promised my FSIL her daughter could be my flower girl when she was born 3 years ago (knowing my wedding wouldn’t be for a few years as I wasn’t even engaged yet), and then my sister had a baby girl a year later so of course I want her in the wedding too.  I think lots of people have more then one flower girl!

@Daenaria727:  I’m having 3, they’ll be 2, 2.5 and 3 years old! 2 of them are my maid of honors daughters and one is a really close friend of the family’s daughter. I couldnt pick between them so I picked all of them lol. I’m actaully making their tutu dresses myself so theres no cost to the parents. I’m so excited to see them all dolled up and running amok haha! my mom was concerned that they’ll steal the show a bit, and my response was “That’s the point!” lol

@Daenaria727:  I think it’s appropriate to buy the flower girls’ dresses – especially because most likely you’re the one picking them out, and because you’re basically borrowing the kid as a prop.  You can get really cheap cute dresses in after-Easter sales.

We had two flower girls and they were adorable 🙂  Under two is a little young, so be prepared for her to get shy or fussy….

@Daenaria727:  There’s no harm in having 2 flower girls. Actually, I am having 2 and it’s a destination wedding. If you want her to be in the wedding, ask. Let the parents decide. 

Also, to cut cost, keep an eye out for dresses. I was apart of a wedding recently where the flowergirls mother was able to get her 3 dresses from a nice department store for under $50 (for all 3) right after Easter. The bride was able to choose which one she liked best.

I am having three!
Between FI and I we have three nieces and three nephews. How could I pick one? I’m going to have each girl walk down with her brother almost like mini bridesmaids/groomsmen. I paid for all of their dresses. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. 🙂
