I have seen alternatives where the flower girls have ribbon wands and wave them down the aisle.

Or have a flower wand.

I think both are cute options! Good luck!

Depending how old they are, I’m having one of my flower girls carry a mini bouquet with just a couple flowers in it. I have 2 flower girls though, the one with the mini bouquet is 9, so she’s a little too old for a basket or something like that.

My flower girl is carrying a basket with petals that will hopefully NOT be thrown.

I had our Flower Girl carry a pinwheel. She was 6yro and it wasn’t used as weaponry 🙂 My son, who is 22mo, liked to play with it too but nothing obnoxious. We were on the beach, so the pinwheel looked nice. 

I’ve also seen FGs carrying a long stem flower or 1 hydrangea which I thought looked nice also. A friend’s Flower Girl had a flower pomander ball and the flowers were all falling out by the time the ceremony ended; we were putting them back in all throughout the time we were taking pics afterwards… but it looked nice.
