I don’t think it really matters, truthfully. I think you can do whatever you want to do. But if you’d rather, you could always make her a Jr. Bridesmaid.

I agree, I don’t think it matters how old or tall a flower girl is..well as long as she isn’t like 16 or something!

I had 2 flowergirls. They are sisters. At the time of my wedding, they were 7 and 4. And the 7 year old is quite tall as well.

I have asked two girls (sisters) if they would like to be our flower girls.  They will be 7 and 10 I believe.  Actually the older one, we both thought she was a bit old, but I felt bad if we only asked the younger one.  When I asked the elder sister if she would still want to be a flower girl or if she was too big for that, she said no and she would want to be one.  So that’s that.  We’ll see though.  She is sprouting like a beanstalk and may be just as tall as me by next summer! 😛

I don’t think it matters at all- and her being a little bit older may make it easier for her to follow directions.

My flower girl is 7 and she is soooo excited. I’ve wondered a little if that is too old, but I’m glad to see there are alot of 7 and older flower girls out there. In the end I just went with it because she’s the one I wanted most to be my flower girl.

Nope, not at all. You could have a 12-year-old flower girl if you wanted to and no one is going to swoop down and stop you. Mine was 9 (my sister), but age didn’t matter….I just wanted her to be part of the ceremony.

i believe i was 10 when i was a flower girl for my aunt and uncle… i had never been a flower girl, and i was quite tall as well. (probably 5’0"-5’2")
 i was thrilled to be asked, it was the first and only time i was a flower girl, and i don’t think anybody cared that i was a bit old and a bit tall. 🙂

our flower girl is my fiance’s cousin, and she is 7, almost 8. our ring bearer is my littlest brother, who will be 10 when we get married.

We are thinking about having a flower girl and ring bearer. They will be 9 and 10, and I was afraid that was too old. Glad to hear other ppl have done this.

my son is going to be our ring bearer, he’ll be 9 (his bday in in oct, wedding in april, so he’ll be 10 on his bday), my daughter will be a flower girl (she’ll turn 6 in June – two months later).  I’m having a niece who’ll be 5 also be a flower girl (I think) and my two nephews are going to “escort” the girls (they’ll be 8 and 6 – or close enough to count, lol).

I think as long as they enjoy it and want to be a part of it, it’ll be great!  Also, the older will be able to walk with the little one and keep her from freaking or anything, lol.

Mine will be 9 and 3 by the time of the wedding… The older one is the oldest of my cousins’ children (I come from a small, very close family), the other is my fiance’s goddaughter
