My suggestion would be to keep the flower girl title but instead of dropping petals have them carry something like a pomander, a wand, or a parasol. That way there’s less mess and it’s a little bit less traditional than dropping petals (which I assume are your objections to having flower girls?).

(P.S. Martha Stewart has instructions for making really cute flower girl parasols: http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/goodthings/posy-parasol)

My daughter is going to be my "flower girl" and will not be dropping petals.  I’m just having her walk down the aisle with a pomander ball.  FH’s twin sons will be the "ring bearers" but we are not having them carry anything, just walking down aisle.

I totally agree with IA Snowflake: the "flowergirl" can fill the role in name only – you don’t have to give her any kind of foliage to make it legit.

What about having her hand out programs or something given to guests as they enter. She would probably need an adult to help but it would be special for her to be involved.

We have flower girls (and a flower dog, but that’s another story).  They will be dropping rice paper confetti that dissolves on contact with water.  No mess, no hassle.  My only concern is about the dog behaving for them!

I had a flower girl, and she didn’t have any kind of flowers… she’s my goddaughter and was just a couple weeks over a year old at the time of the wedding. 

This has some photos of both her & our ring bearer.  The ring bearer did his duty in my MOH’s wedding too, so he insisted he HAD to have a pillow.
