What are you having your flower girl/girls do when they they walk down the aisle? I have three so I want one of them to carry a sign similar to the one pictured below. Not sure what to have the other two do. I was going to have them throw petals but I have been to so many weddings when even older girls won’t throw the petals. It is a job just to get them to walk down the aisle, so I was thinking maybe have them carry a pomander flower ball? I can’t decide and wanted to get some bees input! By the way cute flower girl dresses are so difficult to find!

I don’t have any flower girls in my wedding because I don’t have any close enough girls to ask. However, I love the sign idea, and I agree that the throwing petals can be difficult for little ones. I like the idea of carrying the flower balls. Having flower girls is just all about them looking adorable 🙂

I found an adorable flower girl dress on zulily for just $30! Also, check stores now for easter dresses. I’m going to try having my flower girl throw petals but I think the sign and the flower balls sound great!

I was going to have ours do the pomander ball until I found a flower girl basket on like super clearance. But it is a great idea, along with the sign, if you’re not sure they will throw petals. I am hoping mine just makes it down the aisle. She’ll be almost 4 so I have zero expectations except for her to look adorable!

I’m having my flower girls hold flower wands. Like this but in red.

yes two of mine will be 5 and one will be 4! I was just in a wedding and a 6 year old wouldnt throw the petals! I was 7 in a wedding and I remembered I loved throwing petals, but each child is different! I thought if they just carry an item and don’t have to worry about throwing then the main thing is them getting down the aisle!

What about making three signs for each of the three of them to carry “Groom” “Here comes” “Your bride”

This is a non-pro pic of my youngest as a flower girl in a wedding last month. The venue had a policy against dropping petals- so she just carried the cute little basket with flowers inside.

I saw the picture before your description and I thought to myself “Wow, what a beautiful child. They had to photoshop her cuz she is just perfect”. Then I read your description! Haha, you have stunning daughter!!!

My niece was our flower girl, she carried a kissing ball and I had my SIL walk down the aisle with her. It worked out well. 🙂

We had 3 flower girls; two 5-year olds and an 8-year old. The younger two carried baskets with flowers and walked down the aisle side by side, while the older girl walked a few feet behind them and carried a miniature bouquet.
re: dresses, I agree with MissCorgi22
about checking department stores around Easter and Christmas for cute and cheaper dress options. There are also websites like http://www.pinkprincess.com
which offer a wide array of colors and styles. We found our dress on there initially, but actually ended up ordering from Amazon!
