I was going to say pomander as well.

Mine are going to hold 3 gerbera daisies. We have them all throughout the wedding and I think this’ll make the girls feel like the “big girls” a little bit.

I can’t use real petals, either– but I can use the silk ones, so I’m leaning towards that.  Would your church allow that?

we arent allowed to drop them either. we have her using a ribbon wand thing that has matching flowers on the end. she thinks its a fairy wand so she is just going to wave it all around while she is walking down.

Our venue didn’t allow dropping anything either, so our flower girl just carried a basket of flowers without dropping petals.

We are having ours just carry a smaller bouquet identical to the bridesmaids with 5 ivory roses.

I’m probably the only one who’s gonna do this, but I’m gonna attempt to make mini bouquets for the girls!  As in, child-sized bouquets!  Hopefully I can make them cascading so they can display ’em later….  

That’s my goal for this week while the kidos are with my parents, anyway….

We did a ribbon wand like @Julesb81 did.  I think some of it depends on the age of the flower girl.  My daughter held a tissue pomander in a wedding when she was 3 and it worked out well.

Mine are dropping petals in the ceremony, and then having extra flowers for the photos. They are having a few ivory roses (the same flowers as the bridesmaids) tied with ivory ribbon, and then a loop of ribbon for them to hold. The florist described it as a handbag!
