I really don’t know what to have my girls carry down the aisle! Handmade silk bouquets? I’d rather not have to deal with a florist if I absolutey don’t have too, lol. Or should they carry pomander balls? What about my daughter (flower girl)? She will be just under 3 at the time of our wedding and I don’t think she’ll be into the whole tossing petals out of her basket tihng.
I saw some super cute paper flowers here:
Would it look stupid if I made a bouquet of some sort out of some of those flowers? I don’t even know!

My friend had her flower girl carry a stuffed animal, you could modify that idea to fit your style.
You could have your BMs carry candles, or lanterns. If it’s an outdoor ceremony, you might consider parasols.

I am doing the same. I am having my BMs carry real flowers but on stem/handle there will be ONE personalized brooch for each girl.

Oooh, those paper flowers are pretty! Especially the ones made with sheet music. If you’re up for the project, I think they’d be lovely. Also, anything that would echo your bouquet would be neat—a handful of flowers (real or fake) in the same colors or a clutch purse with a similarly sparkling brooch?

How about clutches? It could double as their gift….

I really love the clutch purse idea or just go with handtied bunch of flowers. The thing about pomanders, they are awkward to hold I think for photos or standing up front. Bouquets and stuff are usually held hip level or so in front and I think a pomander would be held either just down and at the side (awkward?) or holding it up at the height you would like a bouquet and I think it looks kinda funny.

The clutches are a perfect idea, and I love the idea of a teddy bear for a flower girl. If you aren’t completely against it, have you thought about doing silk bouquets for the bridal party? You can make them yourself, and a florist doesn’t have to be involved.

This is kind of funny, but I bought a little dollartree purse for my 3 y.o. granddaughter and her cousin (both flowergirls) so they would feel included. My daughter wasn’t going to have flowers, but then did afterall. The girls ended up putting petals in them, and then dropping the petals “down the aisle” SOOO CUTE !!!!

Ooh, thanks for all the awesome ideas, ladies! I think I’m going to go with parsols since my ceremony will be outside! Although I DO like the clutch idea as well!
