It is tradition to have a flower girl included in your wedding celebration. The flower girl usually delights the wedding guests by dropping rose pedals down the center aisle for the bride to walk on. When they cooperate, they can be an adorable part of the ceremony.
One way to keep your flower girl from having the responsibility of tossing pedals, is to simple have her carry a pomander around her wrist down the aisle. These are wonderful for younger girls that may be a little frightened.
Here are some tips to help you choose the right little girls. Traditionally, flower girls range from 4-8 years old. The younger the girl, the greater the chance that she will be too frightened to perform her duties. Also, it is good to have activities during the reception to keep them occupied so that they won't get bored.
