I’m wondering what is the appropriate age for a flower girl? I don’t want to have to worry about them not understanding what the concept is….and what they are supposed to do. Does anyone have any ideas on how to communicate to the little ones on what they are doing?

I think old enough to walk and speak in sentences should be acceptable! lol one of our flower girls will be two at the time of the wedding almost three. The other flower girl is thirteen, my cousin and because of the big age difference I may just have the younger one..
My brain just isn’t working today, this post made me realize the age gap…

our flower girls will be 6, 5, 4, and 1 at the time of the wedding. the older ones will help the little one make it down the aisle. and if she doesn’t (or won’t) do what she’s supposed to do, we’ll make sure somebody can scoop her up and sit with her in a pew.
i think they’ll be cute no matter what they do!
i was a flower girl at age 3 and my mom always reminds me that, mid-ceremony, i got tired and just plopped down on the ground. at least i made an impression, hah!

Our flower girls will be five and three (almost four). I was a flower girl a couple times myself as a kid (I was 5 and 6). I think any age between 3 and pre-teen is appropriate.

I think it kind of depends on the flower girl. If they are really young, they will probably need to be carried or walked down the aisle by an adult or older child. Some two year olds would be fine, although if they are shy, they might get nervous and not make it down the aisle. With flowergirls in the 2-4 range, they often have someone meet them at the altar area and escort them out a side door so they aren’t expected to stand for the ceremony.
