There really is nothing more adorable than a flower girl! When choosing your wedding party, including a pint-sized princess in the mix not only enhances the sense of occasion, it gives a cute daughter, niece or cousin a starring role. It’s actually a longstanding tradition that has a very historic meaning as Topknot Tiaras & Veils explains:
“The appearance of flower girls in the wedding party is a long held tradition dating right back to Ancient Rome times. In this era the flower girl would carry sheaves of wheat and bouquets of herbs to bless the couple with fertility and prosperity. Then later in the 14th Century, they would often be seen carrying strands of garlic to ward off evil and jealous spirits.”
The flower girls of today may not be there to ward off evil or gift the newlyweds with prosperity, but they do enhance the aisle style with the petals they throw! They also don’t follow the tradition of wearing the same (or even a similar) dress to the bridesmaids.
