The wedding etiquette contains a few rules regarding the choice, duties, and costs, in case you are not familiar with it. Check the ultimate guide for flower girls at your wedding!
Do You Need A Flower Girl On Your Wedding?
Many brides choose to have one just because they want for a young family member to take part. However, having a flower girl is optional. This is an interesting way to include young children in the ceremony, which will make them very happy. But it is okay not to have a flower girl if you can’t find a suitable aged girl.
The role of a flower girl is reserved for small children. You can include a cousin, niece, or a friend’s daughter. Girls aged 3 to 7 years are considered to be perfect for this. It is okay if you want to have more than one flower girl. Consider this if you have a few little girls invited to your wedding so that neither one feels angry that they have not been chosen.
The little flower girl symbolizes innocence and happiness. The dress choice is a discussable question, and there are a few options available. The first one is a mini-version of the bride gown. Having a mini copy of the bride at a wedding is so cute, and this will definitely make the flower girl so happy. Or, the dress can match the bridesmaid’s dresses whether by color or style.
According to wedding etiquette, each guest bears the costs for their own attire. The same goes for the toddler flower girl dresses. Although these costs are completely covered by the parents, the bride can purchase the dress as a gift.
The usual accessories for a flower girl are a basket and a flower wreath. The girl will be holding a basket for the petals that she will spread down the aisle. Usually, this type of accessories is coordinated with the wedding theme. All of the accessories should be paid for and chosen by the bride.
Prepare Them For The Big Day
Remember that kids will always stay kids. They might cry or even fall asleep during the wedding. It is up to you to explain their duties and make them feel comfortable. It is very likely that the little flower girl will get shy. To make it easier for her, grouping can work. The flower girl should be accompanied by another flower girl or the ring bearer. Also, offer a nice gift to show appreciation for their work.
