I made sure everyone signed the guest book at like 12 years old. You could have her man a table at the reception.

How old is your flower girl?  Maybe your fiance’s niece could help the flower girl walk down the aisle or something.

If you have candles you could have her light the candles before the processional or something similar.

She could welcome guests and hand out wedding programs.

Hmmm… tough one. My FI’s 11 year old neice is our flower girl, but she’s a sweetheart. And you already have a flower girl.

No suggestions, but I back you up on not wanting a junior bridesmaid.

+1 to the walking with the flower girl idea. At 2.5, your Flower Girl will most likely get nervous and not do what’s she’s told. One of my daughters was a Flower Girl when she was 3. All she had to do was walk down the aisle before the bride and she wouldn’t do that; there was a last second change of plans and someone walked with her. If you want your Flower Girl to do something else like spread petals I’d say she definitely needs a helper; or at least someone ready to help.

Walking with FI’s parents is fine too.

I saw a wedding that had a child walk down the aisle with a really cute sign that said “Here Comes the Bride.” She wasn’t a flower girl though. She came down the aisle between the bridesmaids and the bride.

The girl wore a dress that was still within the wedding colors, but not the same as the bridesmaids or the flower girls.
