So, we officially have our flower girls…Three to be exact.
Two of which are 8 years old and the other 6-7.
Should they be walking down the aisle one by one or together?
I keep going back and forth on this one. I sometimes feel as though if there were two I might feel better about them walking down together but three of them going down the aisle at the same time seems crammed. I don’t want them walking down holding hands. I also think that because they won’t be holding hands it can end up looking messy…in other words they won’t be exactly next to one another…I really don’t know….
They are all old enough and mature enough to do it on their own if need be, ( They will not have escorts)
Side note: It’s a formal, black tie wedding…don’t know if that changes anything.

I’d think they would walk down one at a time (close to eachother)

Yeah i’d go one at a time but only a few seconds apart

one at a time 🙂 not to close or to far between the walks.when one flower girl is half down the alse the other can start to walk

@Principessa Bunny: I am not sure. I would think you would want them all to walk together but I agree with it looking like it might be cramped.
How is your venue laid out?
I used to go to a church that, with two flower girls, one could walk up each aisle. If you have something like this it might make a difference.
Do they all have to be flower girls?
At my first wedding we had a bell ringer. He was too scared to walk down the aisle but he could have.
I have also seen photos on Etsy.com with signs that say “here comes the bride” maybe the third could be that girl.
I am just not sure about them walking individually either, that seems like overkill. Maybe, send them staggered. Like send one to the left of the aisle then 5 seconds later send the second to the right, then 5 seconds later send the last to the left again. I definitely would not send them too far apart.

Do you have a ring bearer? Maybe one could walk with the ring bearer?

- Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall
We had two flower girls, and they followed each other maybe 2 feet apart. The 2 year old followed the 4 year old, who was told to walk towards “Daddy” (best man)

How about have the 6-7 year old walk up first and then the two 8 year olds walk a couple of feet behind her next to each other? Like a triangle of flower girls?

I went to a wedding today with this same situation. There were 3 flower girls and 6 bridesmaids and the Maid/Matron of Honor. The first flower girl came out ahead of the bridesmaids, then the second came out ahead of the Maid/Matron of Honor and the third and ring bearer came out before the bride.

My first instinct would be to have them walk down the aisle on their own, but close together. We will have 4 flower girls and I planned on having that part be the “flower girl parade” lol.
It might seem cramped if the girls walk next to each other, and kids can be clumsy so walking alone could avoid a domino effect if anything does go weird!
