5 Fun Things For Your Flower Girl To Carry

One of the sweetest parts of any wedding is that adorable flower girl that comes down the aisle announcing the arrival of the bride. There are many different ways that your flower girl can announce your big entrance, and today WhereBridesGo.com has 5 of our favorite ones listed for you.
