I need some advice, bees! I’ve just been informed that my beloved wedding location does NOT allow flower petals or confetti to be thrown. I am getting married on the beach and they say they want to “maintain the appearance of the hotel”. What, then, should I have my flower girls do? I’m certainly not going to have them throwing sea shells down because I kinda don’t want my feet cut up when I’m walking down the “aisle”. Both of them are so excited about their part in my wedding, I can’t tell them that they can’t be in it anymore.

We had three and they just carried tissue pomanders. 🙂

what if you had them walk down with flower wands? Could be totally beachy too!

Who says they have to throw anything?
They can just carry cute baskets,
or a small bouquet or other flower creation like an orb
or even cute purses
or vintage painted pails or decorated to match your theme.
If you are religions, bibles or other religious item (cross, torah etc)

@Pinksapphire: Ours carried little posies made of mini roses (little mini bouquets)

Oh my goodness I love, love, love those wands! I’m actually a frequent shopper of a website that has supplies to make stuff like that. It just never crossed my mind to have the flower girls use them instead of flower petals.
I might either do the wands or make each one a bouquet of either flowers or pomanders. I love doing DIY crafts, so I’m sure I can pull something together by next year.
The main thing I’m disappointed about for my venue is not the fact that the girls can’t throw flowers. But, I can’t have sparklers for me and FI’s exit because they’re illegal in the town =[ I guess I could do wands for that too…

@Pinksapphire: aw! Glad that you can whip something up! 🙂
regarding the sparklers- That stinks! We are using party favors… like noise makers, horns, cap guns (imagine pointing in the air to celebrate) whistles, kazoos, and blowouts… maybe another idea?

I have seen on here flower girls/ring bearers carry “here comes the bride” signs…
Maybe one can blow bubbles and the other one carry the sign?
bubbles was my first thought, but I really do LOVE the “here comes the bride” sign. Its really super cute! maybe one could carry “here comes” and the second one right behind her carry “the bride”
I think little parasols are cute too.
let us know what you decide:) anxious to know:)

My cousin had her flower girl hand out Hershey’s Kisses as she walked down the aisle. I love the wands!
