I would just consider her a flower girl. Flower girls don’t have to only carry flowers.

@drummerbride:  Agreed.

You can always glue a flower to that sign or put some in her hair if the title “flower girl” doesn’t sit well if you sans flowers.

@Mathis13:  I think shes still a flower girl. How old is she? If shes older than ~8 I would call her a Jr. Bridesmaid maybe..? But I actually dont know what a Jr. Bridesmaids does so maybe not lol.

Herald of the Bride is cute.

Or “Flower Girl” with the quatation marks? What about  ‘Bride’s Girl/Gal’?

I think the best options are those suggested previously that most closely state her actual role: banner bearer, herald of the bride, etc.  What a sweet way to involve her – that’s a memory she’ll always have to treasure.

Agree with julies1949:  this person is not your “standard Flower Girl”.  I think the title of Page is far more suitable.

Wikipedia – Wedding Page =  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Page_(wedding_attendant)#Wedding_ceremony_participants

OR if you want to fashion the idea after “British Royalty”… you could always bestow the title of Page of Honour (the person who is the attendant to the Queen at the most formal of events)

Wikipedia – Page of Honour = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Page_of_Honour

Hope this helps,

TO @Mathis13:  … you are welcome, glad to help.  And it goes nicely if you ask me… kind of like you’ll have a Bridesmaid of Honour as well (aka the Maid of Honour).

And it is kind of cool that it is rooted in a “real tradition”… the Queen has someone who takes care of her… and you as the Queen on your Big Day… has someone special too.

PS… I have to say, I sooooo LOVE the idea of her sign…

Lol… Look out “Uncle ___ here comes your girl !!”

@Mathis13:  I wouldn’t sweat it, we have 5 flower girls since we couldn’t pick out of our nieces. I think most guests will end up thinking she is another flower girl anyways.
