It’s traditional for your flower girl to walk down the aisle just before you, throwing petals from a basket like this Sweet Tiers Flower Basket, making way for the beautiful bride. While flowers are and always will be a wonderful choice, you don’t have to stick with them if you don’t want to.
Have the special flower girl lead the way down the aisle with light instead of flower petals. Have her carry a lightweight lantern with a battery-operated light instead of a candle (for safety purposes). You can add colorful fillers to the lantern like gemstones or seashells.
Instead of filling her basket with blooms, put in a single folded note for your future spouse. This little lady can carry it down the aisle and deliver it right to your loved one for a romantic pre-wedding surprise.
Add a splash of color to your aisle by having your flower girl carry either a single balloon or a whole bunch of them.
Pinwheels give off a whimsical feel and are perfect for children. They’ll love carrying the spinning wheel down the aisle.
