The most adorable member of a wedding party, the flower girl is an important figure in today’s weddings. Accompanied by the ring bearer, a flower girl represents innocence and sweetness. The tradition of the flower girl dates back to the old England times, where a small girl, commonly aged 4 to 8, would toss fresh flowers along the aisle before the bride. This symbolized a “rosy life,” which were the most sincere wishes guests would have towards the bride, and after the ceremony, towards the couple.
Fresh rose petals have been traditionally carried by the flower girl down the aisle. Nothing is more charming that watching an innocent little girl sprinkle rose petals as she is walking! Fresh rose petals add an elegant touch to the aisle and to the ceremony. In order to add more detail, why not add a basket made out of flowers as well? Small blooms such as daisies and poms are wonderful additions to a flower basket, which can be easily attached to the outside of the basket with floral adhesive. For sparkle, compliment the flowers with feathers, butterflies or special objects.
A pomander can also be a nice flower addition as it is simple yet elegant. The big plus: it is easy and light for the little one to carry. Normally a small round ball of flowers, the most convenient flowers to use are poms, daisies, spray roses and even freesia!
If you are going for a more modern approach, a petite hand bouquet made with similar blooms as the ones used in the bride’s bouquet is always a good choice. The size of the bouquet should be proportional to the size of the flower girl for a uniform look. If your flower girl would like something special and unique, you can provide her with a wand cover with flowers. Not only will she feel like a fairy, but she would look like one too! This nice look can be complemented with hair wreaths, which can be made out of the same flowers used for the wand.
A flower girl will always look lovely. Choose the best flowers to make her feel special and to add that sparkle to the most important day of your life.
