Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

Kids are a tad unpredictable and easily distracted, yet OH SO CUTE at a wedding ceremony! I love hearing the collective, “awwwww” as the flower girl takes her very important walk down the aisle. Whether she looks like a little tulle cupcake or a mini diva ready to make her Hollywood debut – she will make it her own and you will love her for it.

What your flower girl holds/tosses should be a well thought out detail. Age is a big consideration – girls more than four years old can walk down the aisle unassisted and can toss or hold anything you give them.  Have a basket made out of fresh floral or greenery and fill it with petals to toss. Or if they are extra girly have a floral handbag made so they can feel extra sassy! Floral halos complete the angelic look, and at that age they probably won’t rip them off. The little ones can still do the job though! Have them hold a miniature pomander that is not too heavy, and adorn their hair with a floral barrette.

CLINK tips to help keep that adorable look throughout the ceremony (and photos):

*Help choose your flower girl’s dress by making it a day-of-fun. Get pampered together, have lunch, and shop till you drop. Bribery works, so butter her up so she will put on the dress you love without too much fuss.

*Have your flower girl attend the rehearsal so she can familiarize herself with her surroundings. She may forget everything the following day but at least she will feel a little more comfortable.

*Present your flower girl with a gift on the wedding day. It will keep her entertained and she will be in an extra sweet mood as she saunters down the aisle.

*If your flower girl is nervous, give her that boost of confidence by having a trusted relative (parent/grandparent) stand by her side until it’s her turn to walk. And be sure to have another person waiting for her at the end of the aisle.
