Is it weird that im not having flower girls? Everyone gives me this look when I say im not having any flower girls. The reason is because I really don’t want to deal with any kids other than mine of course on my wedding day. But I think my Sisiter in laws took it personal. One has 2 girls and the other has 1. But it’s not that I dont love them its just not what I wanted. How can I include them without having to deal with them all day.

Usually you dont really have to deal with the flower girls all day, they just walk down the aisle with their basket or pomander and thats about it. They dont really hang around with you after that. But if you really dont want flower girls then you dont have to have them

I didn’t have flower girls. My stepson was our ring bearer, my two nephews escorted the mom’s down the aisle. They stayed through the cocktail hour and then went back to the hotel for a pizza party with a babysitter. It worked out really well! I wouldn’t think it was weird if someone didn’t have them. I’ve been to plenty of weddings without!

We didn’t have any kids at our wedding besides two breast feeding babies.
As for the wedding party, we already had 4 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen and 6 honour guard, so I just felt like that was ENOUGH.

Many couples don’t have a flowergirl and no one misses them. Honestly, no one will think less of you or your wedding if you don’t have one.

i don’t think people would notice if there were no flowergirls. most weddings I’ve been to haven’t had any.
I would just dance with them in a circle holding hands if they’re still at the reception as a way of including them.

No flower girl (or ring bearer) for us. Honestly we learned from BIL’s wedding this past summer. God son (who’s 2) did awesome at the rehearsal but went bananas on the wedding day and was screaming crying throughout the whole ceremony. I couldn’t hear squat and his parents missed the whole ceremony.

we aren’t having any kids in our wedding party. our church doesn’t allow children under the age of 5 to participate in the wedding party (really old catholic church). we actually are having a child free wedding. all of the parents have been really excited about it except one. most of them are happy to have a night out w/o their kids – time to bond w/ their SO!
