Friday Five: 5 Things to have your Flower Girl carry (besides petals)

Are you having a nice Friday so far? Great, because it is about to get even better! This Friday we are going to give you some wonderful alternatives to the traditional flower girl petal toss. While the idea of having the flower girl throw petals is adorable, you might be looking for something different (and want to avoid the expense of buying petals just to be thrown on the ground and walked all over). If this sounds like you, here are some great ideas:

#1 “Here Comes the Bride” sign

I love the idea of having you flower girl(s) carry a sign. Here is the classic “here comes the bride,” but you can go any route you like. You can even personalize it like “Hey (insert groom’s name), here comes your girl”!

#2 Balloons

You can have your flower girl carry a bouquet of balloons in your wedding colors or two white heart balloons. Your flower girl will be delighted that she gets to carry balloons and your guests will love your creativity.

#3 A Flower Ball

Lots of pomander ideas!

If you want your flower girl to carry flowers but don’t want her to throw petals all over the floor, flower balls (also called pomanders) are a great alternative.

#4 A Lantern

Having your flower girl carry a lantern will add a nice touch of whimsy to your wedding and will light up your flower girl’s face!

#5 A Wand

Your flower girl will feel and look like a little fairy princess carrying a wand adorned with flowers and ribbons!

And that is your Friday Five! Be sure to check back next week to see some alternatives to the traditional ring bearer pillow!
