Flower Girl Duties

Flower Girls are typically between the age of 3 and 8 years old. Their primary function is to look cute and to draw oohs and aahs from the wedding guests as they walk down the aisle. They are the youngest and most unpredictable member of the wedding party. It is extremely important for the bride and the parents to make sure that the little girl understands just what she is expected to do. Fortunately her duties are few.

  • A flower girl attends all bridal showers.
  • She also attends the ceremony rehearsal and sometimes the rehearsal dinner.
  • During the ceremony a flower girl scatters rose petals (many times made of silk) along the bridal path.
  • During the ceremony besides scattering rose petals a flower girl comes down the aisle right before the bride.
  • After the vows at the end of the ceremony, a flower girl follows the maid or matron of honor down the aisle.
  • Some flower girls sit at the bridal table at the reception, however, most of the time they sit with their families.

Flower Girl Gifts

When getting a gift for that all important flower girl it is important to remember her age. Of course at that age they will like anything you get them. This will probably be the easiest gift to pick out of any in your wedding party. Just think girly.

  • A pretty bracelt in pastel colors made out of Swarovski will be both girly and glitzy. Any little girl will love it.
  • A pretty photo frame saying "Flower Girl" with a picture of the bride and groom and of course the flower girl.
  • A colorful T-shirt with "Flower Girl on the front and her name on the back.
  • A pretty tote bag with flower girl stitched on it filled with some fun gifts. Example: a mini bride doll, coloring book, some miniature figures of her favorite cartoon character, a collection of pretty beads to make her own bracelet and necklace set, etc.

Julie, they are so adorable coming down the aisle. Unitil they spot someone they know. My daughter came running over to me and nothing would get her to go where she belonged. Oh well, it is expected when they are so young.
