Hello! I just started planning my wedding with my fiancé and we were discussing our wedding party. We already had decided that we would have no grooms men or brides maids. But now we are wondering if we actually need a flower girl.
There is only 1 little girl in my family and she is quite… horrific. We were planning on having the wedding consist mostly of adults since his family lives so far away and wouldn’t want to travel with a bunch of children.
Of course we have our ring barer picked out because he’s my younger brother so he’d have to attend.
But is it really nessisary to have the flower girl just because we have a ring barer? Or could we get away without one?

Im not having a flower girl. But then again I’m not having a ring barer. Do what you want. If she is horrifying then why bother? Just more stress on you.

You don’t need either.
Depending on the age of your brother, another option is he could be a groomsman or junior groomsman. But anyway, he’s especially close because he’s your brother! You don’t need to include anyone else just because you’re including your own brother.

We’re having 2 ring bearers and no flower girl. There is no requirement for any attendants and, just because you have one type, it doesn’t mean you need another.

Nope, not necessary. I hear the origins of the flower girl is to tos red rose petals to symbolize the virginal blood the bride will shed that night. Pretty creepy and gross. Feel free to skip it!
