Wedding Flower Girls: Duties and Dresses

Top Tips for Wedding Flower Girls

There’s no doubt about it, including a cute-as-a-button flower girl on your big day adds a sense of charm and wonderment to your ceremony.

Playing such an important role is a dream come true for many little girls, so it’s important that they fully understand their duties to make everything go as smoothly as possible on the day.

So, what does a flower girl do?

The most important role of a flower girl is to walk ahead of the bride and scatter rose petals for the bride to walk on. Some venues no longer allow this practice due to the costs of clearing up, so in place of petals the flower girl often carries a bouquet or basket of flowers.

Having more than one flower girl will mean less nerves on the day and provides the ceremony with some symmetry. It’s also a good idea to invite the flower girl to rehearsals so that she has a good idea of what is expected of her on the day.

If you are worried about whether your flower girl will need reassurance, try to ensure that her parents are at the front of the ceremony so that she can focus on them as she walks.

Finally, it’s important to think about what kind of dress you would like your flower girl to wear. It I not necessary to dress her in a miniature version of the bridesmaids’ dresses, so spend some time choosing something that fits your wedding theme, such as this beautiful Princess Floral Dress.

Remember that you can’t control everything! Including children in a ceremony can have mixed results, the key thing is to relax and take it all in your stride!
