So my fiance’s niece will be two at the wedding, and we were thinking about making her our flower girl. We don’t really have any other young cousins/nieces/nephews who would be appropriate in the roles of flower girl/ring bearer, and I’d love to include her. I’m not worried about her “messing up” the ceremony, because at worst, she would cry, and everyone would think “oh, so cute” and her mom would take her out. Not a big deal. But, would it be a little weird to have such a young flower girl? My mom thinks I’m crazy. 🙂

I’m having my goddaughter be the flower girl in our wedding. She will also only be about 2 years old. Her mom is one of my bridesmaids so I’ll probably have her and 1 groomsman and the flowergirl all go down together. Then Flowergirl’s dad can take over during the ceremony. I’m pretty crazy though since my 100 lb dog will also be our ring bearer, he will be walked down with my Maid/Matron of Honor (sister) and Bestman. then i have a friend taking over during the ceremony. I think it’s those quirky things that make a day fun and unique. I don’t expect that it’ll go perfectly, but I’m okay with that! I think if you love her and want her to be in it then go for it.

Mine will be 2, almost 3 at the wedding. I’m not worried. She’s a smart little girl!

- Wedding: August 2009 - Eastside Catholic Chapel and Lake Union Cafe
Our 2.5 year old nephew was our ring boy and was a little hesistant to walk down the aisle. We ended up having the Maid/Matron of Honor walk in with the flower girl and the ring boy walk in with his dad the Bridesmaid or Best Man. It worked out well.

My cousins daughter will be my flower girl- and she will be about 3 for the wedding. This summer when we visited her she was two and I think she would have been fine in the wedding even at that age. As long as you don’t have your heart set on the day going perfectly I think it will be totally fine. I agree with you- its the quirky things that make the wedding fun and memorable.

Our Ring Bearers were 2 and they were great!! Since there were 2 of them, they had fun together and encouraged one another to walk down the aisle holding hands. They did awesome.

I would recommend that somebody accompany your flower girl down the aisle. Either one of her parents, readers, or older bridal party member. It’s best if she feels comfortable and do not cry so she doesn’t have some horrid memory of being a flower girl.

My FI’s two nieces are our flowergirls. One will be 2.5 and the other will be 1 year and a few days! 🙂 I’m not expecting the 1 year old to walk down the asile but we wanted her name in our program and her to be in a few pictures with us and her sister. They are the only nieces and no nephews on either side and they live out of state. So we wanted to do something special with them both.

My FI’s nephew will be just under 2 years when he walks down the aisle with us-we have two other kids that will be in the wedding-one will be 4 1/2 & one will have just turned 3. We’re just prepared that if at all they can’t handle it, we’ll take them out.
