Would this be cute, or too much?

My “flower girl”, my niece carried a here comes the bride sign. She was the hit of the wedding.

My only hesitation is the 12 year old. That seems a bit old for something that “young”

@marinesfiance:  I had 2 nephews one 7 and the other 10 and they carried signs…..One had here comes the bride and the other had last chance to run…..everyone thought it was cute!

It’s super cute, but I’d send an 8 year old back to sit with her parents rather than trust her to stand or sit quietly for a half hour ceremony.  

Also, 3 year olds can get stage fright, so she might need somebody older to be her minder.

@marinesfiance:  you can have more than one flower girl, it’s your wedding, you can do what you want 🙂

I would ask the 12 year old if it’s something she’d like to do. I work with that age group, and many of them would not be interested – seeing themselves as too old for it. For me personally, 12 is too old, i’d have her as a bridesmaid. But it’s your wedding, do whatever makes you happy

@marinesfiance:  No we have no little girls in the family just 2 boys so we just had them carry their signs. I wish I would have had a flower girl….I think you should go for it! Everyone will think its cute!

You acn have more than one flower girl.  It’s allowed.

I’m not really sure why you’re anti-junior bridesmaid?  She wouldn’t necessarily need to wear a mini version of the bridesmaid dress.  She could wear something closer to the flower girl style.

You said she wants to be a flower girl… But she’s 10 now, right?  Based on the date given, your wedding isn’t for a few years.  If that’s the case, she could feel completely different about it by that time.  from 10 to 12 I changed from elementary to middle school, and that’s a big jump.
