Fiance and I were thinking of including all of the kids in the ceremony as flower children, instead of having a flower girl.
We are having somewhat of a Destination Wedding…it’s more of an out of state wedding than a Destination Wedding tho. The kids are all family or close friends. Most of them are well-behaved and over 7…there is one who will be about 6 and a half and he has ADHD and is a little slower than his peers (absoultely no offense intended) and can be problematic more often than not. There will also be an eighteen month old and we don’t want to offend the mom and dad of this kid by not including her, but we really don’t want to have adults helping the kids throw flowers around.
Anyway, what do you bees think? Does this sound like fun or does this sound like a disaster?

how many kids are we talking? can you assign a younger kid to walk with the 18 month old? It could be cute but it depends how many kids you’re looking at

First, your title had me thinking of the hippy kind of flower child. Second, I think it really depends on how many you’re talking about. Can you incorporate them in other ways? I think ij general it would look strange having a bunch of kids just throw flowers. Maybe have one or two flower kids, and have the rest line up to toss bird seed or blow bubbles or wave ribbons during the recessional? Keeps them involved, looks cute in pictures and is a simple enough task for their age group.

@Missy_Star: There would probably be around 12 kids. We only have a Maid/Matron of Honor and a Bridesmaid or Best Man so we don’t have a huge wedding party to worry about. I think there is a possibility of having someone help the 18 month old walk down the aisle but I’m not sure about all that yet.
@HonoraryNerd: Actually, I think that sounds like a great idea. Thanks!
