We aren’t having a flower girl or a typical ring bearer. We just don’t know anyone close enough that we would want in our wedding, or even at our wedding. Our “ring bearer” is going to be 12 when we get married, so we are upgrading him to Jr. Groomsman.

Sorry that happened! We dont have a flower girl or ring bearer, we have no kids the right ages close enough to us. It doesnt bother me in the slightest not to have one. I think its better not to force it with someone your not close to you know?

Over the last five years, I’ve been to sooooo many weddings, and I can only remember two with a flower girl. I never felt the others were incomplete. So I think that most people wouldn’t notice or feel that your wedding is incomplete. But, if you really want to have one, I’d encourage you to find a way 🙂 I love the idea of someone walking your adorable little daughter down the aisle as your Flower Girl.

Does it make you feel better if I tell you I don’t have a ring bearer? LOL I just lost mine the other day to reasons I can’t get into right now. So I now have flower girls and no ring bearer, but I have seen plenty of people get married without children in their wedding.

no flower girl here either, and no ring bearer… just 4 groomsmen and bridesmaids. We just dont know anyone with small children and the youngest person who will be at our wedding is Future Sister-In-Law.. who is too old for a flower girl and too young/immature for the bridesmaid.
So we left that whole thing out, i dont think it’ll matter though.

I’m not. I didn’t want any kids at my wedding, so no flower girl.

You may not even need anyone to carry the baby if by the wedding she is walking just give her a pomander ball and point her towards”daddy” everything will be fine

We’re not having a flower girl or ring bearer. I see no problem with it at all!

No flower girl for me. I have a young girl second cousin who would be of appropriate age, but I am not exceptionally close to them. I don’t want to have her in the wedding just so I could have a flower girl.
I think if your friend’s daughter fall through, then just drop the flower girl. No need to cause yourself addition stress trying to fill that spot. It won’t look incomplete & no one will wonder why you don’t have one.

My wedding will just by my sister (MOH) and that’s it. If Mr.TKE insists, maybe his sister whom I am fairly close with. NO Flower Girl, NO RB. Just us!

no one will notice…its quite normal not to have them these days 😉

My sister is 10- will be 11 at the wedding.. so… she wanted to be a bridesmaid. So- no flower girl for us! How old can a Flower Girl be anyway?
