Mine wasn’t allowed to toss anything either, but they recommended she hand out roses and it was perfect for our wedding!  She did an amazing job too.  🙂

My sister and I were flower girls at my aunt’s wedding eons ago. We carried baskets of fake flowers and ribbon. I remember my sister whacking me on the legs with that darn basket all the way down the asile. My grandmother ended up putting her in timeout on one of the benches.

Everyone thought it was hilarious but lol i’m still anti basket. I think I’ll have my girls carry mini bouquets.

I thought these pics were too sweet.

@couawilou: Please DO! =) Now just to find the PERFECT signage! (If I dont make it myself! Lol)

I was not fond of the idea of even having kids are at our wedding, but coming from a huge tight-knit family, it was inevitable. I think Flower Girls bring back the memories of innocence, purity and joy. Which is always awesome! And I truly love how they get shy but at the same time LOVING the attention!

And it made it even easier that I found the PERFECT dress for them for $35/each! lol

My 6-year-old niece was our flower girl & she did a great job! She scattered rose petals and vellum snowflakes and even remembered to pause for her photos. We had a 4-year-old nephew as ring bearer & we used the pillow with the dummy rings. We had a 3-year-old broom bearer carry the boom down the aisle for use & then just before my entrace, another 4-year-old nephew was our “crier” and he had a snowflake shaped bell that he rang & said, “the bride is coming! The bride is coming!”

They all did a great job & only the crier had a moment of stage fright, but an usher (his uncle) knelt down & gave him a pep talk & he did great!

I think the kids make it sweet and whimsical.

I totally wish we had a flower girl! We only have a ringbearer, and he is 2. That is currently up in the air as to if he will participate. However, I am drawing the line for the reception, and have been really trying to talk my Future Sister-In-Law into getting a sitter because I do not want to be upstaged by a tantrum during the father daughter dance – or something similar. I totally do not care if I sound horrible for saying that, either! 🙂

My sister is 10, so she is just too old to be flower girl. However, she is a “junior” bridesmaid, and has a different dress style than the older girls.

@msjujubeans: No worries. I like your wands, btw, I don’t think there has to be flowers or petals 🙂
