I have a 5 year old (daughter of a friend) who is our flowergirl – she is BEYOND BEYOND BEYOND excited that she gets to be the flower girl. However, with children you have to know that there is a possibility that whatever can go wrong will. With her I think it’s actually more likely she will go down the aisle than run back up to go down it again. That all being said I also have a 2 year old cousin who is our ring bearer and I know it’s just as likely he won’t make it down the aisle as he will. Accept that children in the wedding mean excitement and unpredicatability. (Me – I wanted that for my wedding). For some not having control is frustrating, have a contigency plan – our wedding coordinator will help them along if they pause and worse comes to worse she will scoop them up and carry them to the end of the aisle.

Kids require flexibility. All kids. And that’s okay. If she walks down the aisle and tosses a few flowers, great. If not, it’s not the end of the world. It’ll be a great day, either way. And I’m sure your mom’s friend’s wedding was great too. A nervous flower girl really shouldn’t equal a ruined wedding!

LOL I’m sure you didn’t ruin the wedding! You kind of have to expect that might happen with small kids. The ring bearer in my sister’s wedding did a great job walking down the aisle at the rehearsal, but once all the people were in the church for the ceremony, he refused.
