I have two flower girls and a ring bearer. One flower girl and the ring bearer are twins (3 years old) and will be carrying a sign down the aise that says “here comes the bride”. I’m not sure what to have the other flower girl (6 years old) carry. I DO NOT want to pick up flower petals so we are not throwing them. My venue, where we will be holding the ceremony and reception, is an industrial setting. The centerpieces and cermeony decor are lanterns so I was thinking maybe she could carry a lantern with a flameless candle? If she swings it around though, it could break or the candle won’t stay in place, etc. Other ideas? I handmade all of my flowers out of stain fabric so I guess I could do a mini bouquet but I didn’t want her to match the bridesmaids either! The struggle is real. Any thoughts?

I would either make her a mini bouquet or a pomender ball. And so what if her flowers kind of sort of match the BMs? It will still be obvious that she is a Bridesmaid or Best Man.

Pomander. That’s what I’m having my 5 year old flower girl carry.

You could hot glue the candle to the lantern

I’m trying to stay away from flowers. I’m not big on them and I was even considering finding something else for my bridesmaids to carry before I made their bouquets. Since the twins are carrying a sign, I wanted to do something more unique for the other flower girl.

We are having our flower girl carry a kissing ball, since our church won’t let us use Flower petals.

My flower girl is 3 and she’ll be carrying a small bouquet.
You could have her carry a ribbon wand like this little cutie!
