One of the most important roles in weddings is the flower girl. Well, it's not that their role is entirely necessary, but they are traditionally great parts to fill in a typical wedding. So now that you have chosen your flower girl or girls, you need to pick out the cutest flower girl dresses, right? Before we get to that, let's do a flower girl 101 to see if you did fill up the role with the right girls.
How many flower girls do I need?
You don't need a massive army of little girls scattering flower petals, do you? You can go for a minimum of one and a maximum of around four little girls to fill the role. It would also depend on just how many important girls you have in your life like your niece of your fiancee's sister.
Is there an age limit in choosing a flower girl?
Technically, the role of a flower girl is intended for, well, little girls. Young girls aged three to eight are perfect flower girls; however, some do choose flower girls that are about ten years old. Otherwise, any other girl older than that are already junior bridesmaids and not flower girls.
Are there other roles a flower girl can do?
You don't always have to follow the conventional role of flower girls which is to scatter flower petals along the way. The thing is, they only spread around a few petals at a time and can look a bit of a mess anyway, so you can have them do other things like blow bubbles-which they would find fun—hold a pomander or scatter candies or confetti. Some brides even have the flower girls hold their train.
