The Role of Flower Girl Attendants in the Bridal Party
Flower Girls are delightful! What is the role of Flower Girl? Flower Girl attendants in the Bridal Party assist the entrance of the Bride. A Flower Girl is a great addition to the Bridal Party, and the delight is doubled when there are two of them!
Here are Pip and Pepper, those two-and-a-half-year-old twin nieces of the Bridegroom, Pog at Peg & Pog’s wedding.
Peg and Pog hope that Pip and Pepper will skip along happily in front of them as they enter the Rose Garden for their wedding ceremony. However, Pip and Pepper have other ideas!! The little Flower Girls take a shortcut to the Rose Garden. After all, weddings are exciting and little girls like excitement. Pip and Pepper race ahead and alert everyone that Peg and Pog are on the path! The Bride and Groom approach and enter the Rose Garden on their own. Pip and Pepper stand in the wedding area and clap excitedly as Peg and Pog enter. Everyone appreciates such a novel bridal procession. This lovely touch sets the warm and happy tone for the wedding and everyone smiles and feels the love.
Flower Girls as Bridal Attendants
Are Flower Girls in the Bridal Party a good idea? What do you really expect of Flower Girls? Choosing Flower Girls can be a way to include young girl relatives and friends in the wedding. The big questions are, “Do they want to be a Flower Girl?” “Are they old enough to understand what is expected?” and “Are they reliable?”
Pip and Pepper are two-and-a-half-year-old girls who do exactly what they want to do!
As long as the Bride and Groom and all other Bridal Party attendants prepare for anything, then it is a good idea. Children are unpredictable however, and the chance of ‘different behaviour’ is very high.
Girls who consider themselves to be too old to be a Flower Girl have the role of Junior Bridesmaid. The Junior Bridesmaid’s role is actually less complicated that that of a Flower Girl. Junior Bridesmaids have a more relaxed time and do not have any specific tasks on the wedding day.
Will you include Flower Girls or Junior Bridesmaids in your Bridal Party? Will you prepare for ‘different behaviour’ on the day? How will you cope with unplanned events on the day? What will you say or do when such unplanned events occur? Keep smiling, treasure the precious moments on your big day and spread the love.
