Choose A Flower Girl for Your Wedding
This article is all about the children. Children play an important role in weddings, you want them to look super cute whilst having a ball. So this feature is dedicated especially to making the little ones at your wedding look utterly gorgeous.
The most important flower girl task is to scatter flower petals from the flower girl basket as she walks down the aisle, creating a beautiful and fragrant pathway. As the bride travels down the aisle, which symbolizes her journey into a new life, the flower girl represents the bride's innocence and youthfulness.
The flower girl should be taught how to walk quietly down the aisle, properly carry the flower girl basket and scatter the right number of rose petals. It's a good idea for the little girl's parents to practice the pace and scatter technique with her a few weeks before the wedding. She can use something simple, such as pieces of confetti or leaves, to practice. If the flower girl is familiar with how she's supposed to do things, it won't seem as scary when the big day arrives.
While a single flower girl is traditional, it's perfectly acceptable to have two or three flower girls, each with her own flower girl basket, or for the flower girl and ring bearer to walk down the aisle together. No matter what variation is chosen, the flower girl clutching a fragrant flower girl basket of blossoms is a sweet and memorable tradition to include in a wedding.
