Flower girl frequently asked questions

What is a Flower Girl?

 A flower girl is usually one of the youngest members of the wedding and precedes the bride down the aisle. In today’s day and age, it is common for a couple to include a flower girl in the wedding party to honour a little one that is close to the family.

How Old Should a Flower Girl Be?

Flower girls are typically between the ages of three and eight years old. You will want to bear in mind that this position will require them to walk down the aisle so you need to be confident that they can do this. If the flower girl you had in mind is younger, then fret not. It is common for younger flower girls to be accompanied by parents, older flower girls or even bridesmaids down the aisle. Flower girls are usually nieces, cousins or even the children of your best friend.

Is 13 Too Old for a Flower Girl?

The upper age limit for flower girls is usually around eight, but this can completely depend on how the child feels. It may be worth having a conversation with her as many 13-year-olds will be fine with being a bridesmaid and thankful you have thought to include them in your wedding. More mature girls may prefer to be a bridesmaid and not be grouped with the younger flower girls.

 How Many Flower Girls Can I Have?

You may be under the impression that you can only have one flower girl, however, this is completely untrue. There are no rules when it comes to your wedding day and you can choose to have as many flower girls as you want. The typical amount is between 1-3 and having a few may be an easier way to get the children involved without anyone feeling left out.

What is Flower Girl Etiquette?

After getting ready with your bridesmaids, allow the flower girl to come and join you and the bridesmaids to make her more comfortable and show her that her role is just as important as the others. You could even pay someone to do her hair to make her feel extra special.

Where Does the Flower Girl Stand?

When walking down the aisle is customary for the flower girl to then go and sit with family and the rest of the guests instead of standing with the bridal party.  It will also be less noticeable if she fidgets throughout the ceremony if she is sitting down. If she is slightly older she can stand with the bridesmaids throughout the ceremony.

When Does the Flower Girl Walk Down the Aisle?

If they are old enough to walk by themselves, flower girls should walk down the aisle after the bridal party and ahead of the bride. If they are too young to walk or are a little shy, they can be accompanied by a parent or bridesmaid to coax them down the aisle. They will be the last person down the aisle before the bride and will have the guests ‘oohing’ and ‘ahhing’ at how adorable they look.

Does the Flower Girl Match the Bride or Bridesmaids?

Traditionally the flower girl’s dresses generally match that of the bride or bridesmaids. A popular option will be to have an ivory or white dress with some form of lace or embellishment to match the bride and then a sash in the same colour as the bridesmaid’s dresses.

Does the Flower Girl Give the Bride a Gift?

Whilst it is tradition to give the flower girl a small gift to say thank you for playing her part in your big day, many flower girls will also gift the bride something to say thank you in return for allowing her to take part. The go-to gift from a flower girl to the bride will be a pretty frame with a picture of the flower girl and bridesmaid together.
