What are Flower Girl Duties?
Above all, the duties of a Flower girl are to look cute and adorable! Having a flower girl is optional, but a nice way to make a favourite little person feel part of the special day.
Her main role is to walk down the aisle in front of the bride or maid of honor, in front of the ring bearer (if there is one), carrying a basket and dropping rose petals as she walks, other alternatives include wrapped candies or confetti. Other modern departures from these options are carrying a pomander or blowing bubbles!
Flower girl duties can also include helping the bride on her way to the alter, asking for a wish from guests in attendance at the wedding, and picking up flowers or petals in order to scatter them on and around the bride.
The flower girl role has traditionally been reserved for toddlers and little girls, modern weddings have seen a real turn around to this tradition. Some couples ask their grandmothers to serve as flower girls, others train their dogs to walk down the aisle with a bouquet, there is really no rules and no limits to the modern day flower girl role.
A great idea is to have a buddy system. Having two flower girls pairing up and walking down the aisle together side by side, or partnering the flower girl with the ring bearer. Partnering can add to their confidence. Also there is no limit to the age of a flower girl, if you are thinking of a younger flower girl, then it is absolutely ok, to ask a parent to walk down with them to help throw the petals.
