- Wedding: July 2019
I’m not having either.
Nope! We didn’t have kids at the wedding,but even if we did, I still wouldn’t have had them. Our wedding party was small, I just had my Maid/Matron of Honor, and he just had his best woman, no groomsmen and no other bridesmaids.
I echo the PPs, I can’t remember the last wedding I went to with a flower girl. It may have been when I WAS the flower girl, so late 80s…
*EDIT: to sauy I went to a wedding in October with a flower girl. I think she was the neice of the bride. She was cute, but threw her flowers onto the laps of the guests instead of down the aisle, and then had to be coaxed to the front after she got half way. They didn’t have a ring bearer.
We’re not having a wedding party other than a flower girl. Our wedding will be small- about 40 people so there was no reason for bridemaids or groomsmen. Between us we have 1 niece and 5 nephews. All the boys are under 12. I have a prior post about my SIL who I greatly try to avoid conflict with. My thought was that there’s no point in upsetting anyone in choosing among the boys so we’re choosing none. My Future Sister-In-Law is disappointed but she isn’t upset. We have had push back about the size of our wedding but I don’t have much family let alone family that might be willing to travel for our big day. It does sound like they are old school, but think of it this way- its less for you to have to plan. That’s a win.
I didn’t at my first wedding and won’t at my second. Not necessary at all.
We didn’t have a flower girl or ring bearer. We had cousins with small children we could have asked but since we went with a child free wedding we didn’t want to get into a couple kids being there but not everyone’s. I did have my DH’s niece as a junior bridesmaid but she was 10 so being a flower girl seemed a little childish for her.
