Flower girls are your little bridesmaids, so dress them in super cute way for everyone to sigh with excitement! For a fall affair, choose something that highlights the season, for example, a maxi dress with a tutu skirt in the truly autumn colors: marsala, orange, red, chocolate brown or emerald. The flower girl is commonly used to refer to a young female who scatters flower petals down the aisle during a wedding procession. However, the term can also be used to refer to girls who sell flowers, such as the fictional character Eliza Doolittle.
In a traditional wedding procession, flower girls are usually members of the bride or groom’s extended families or a friend of either family and are usually three to ten years old. In a wedding procession a flower girl walks down the aisle with her partner, usually the ring bearer or page boy. So, if you don’t have any young friends or family members, it can be hard to find the perfect flower girl and ring bearer. But rest easy, bride-to-be: You don’t have to have a flower girl or a ring bearer, especially if you don’t have anyone in mind for the role. You can either choose to skip having those two roles all together, and ask a groomsmen to be in charge of your rings, or you can get creative.
By creative, I mean doing away with the age stigma attached to these roles and giving the honor to another friend or family member that’s not a bridesmaid or groomsmen. You can even give this role to a pet, who is trained and able to follow the cue of when to walk down the aisle and meet you. What’s the flower girl’s primary role? To be darling, of course. But rosy cheeks and ribbons aside, her cruise down the aisle is no small feat. Having a flower girl is optional, but it’s a nice way to make a favorite little person feel a part of it all. Here’s an explanation of her role and tips to help make it easy.
