The Flower Girl

Everything You Wondered About the 

Flower Girls

They do seem to steal the show!!

The Flower Girls Duties:
  • Attend the bridal shower
  • Attend the ceremony rehearsal
  • Families of flower girls are expected to pay for dresses and accessories
What does the Flower Girl do at the Wedding Ceremony:
  • They walk right in front of the bride into the church.
  • They can scatter flowers, petals or something else the bride chooses
  • They can carry anything that goes with the theme of your day, maybe a small bouquet, a wand, bubbles or a "Here Comes the Bride" sign. Your imagination is the only limit. 
  • The flower girls stand near the bridesmaids or they can sit with their families.
  • Don't forget to photograph them as part of the wedding party.
At the Reception:

  • The flower girls sits with their families not at the head table
  • The flower girl dances with the page boy or ring bearer.

The Flower Girls Mom:
  • Most the time it is your obligation to pay for the flower girl dress, but it is not your job to pick it out. You may make a suggestion but the bride gets to make the final decision.
  • You and your daughter need to be available for all the wedding related events and for pictures. If you can't commit to everything, then you might want to re-think committing your daughter.
  • Prepare your daughter so she won't be scared and will know exactly what to expect.
  • Remember it is the brides day and it will be a be stressful for her, so be patient and clam.
