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 favorites to share with you. 


The Classic... Updated
Traditionally flower girls most often carry a basket full of rose petals to be dropped down the aisle for the bride to walk upon. This is still an excellent idea today, but if you're looking for something a little different, you don't have to fill that basket with flower petals. Pull some ideas from the season that you are getting married in, like using colored leaves in the fall, or shiny cut-out snowflakes at a winter wedding. For a musically-inspired ceremony, you could let your flower girl toss small paper hearts cut from the sheet music of your favorite love songs.  



Full Flowers
Instead of having her toss the petals from flowers, let her carry a bouquet of her own, just like the bridesmaids, but miniaturized. This relieves a child from the pressure of having to remember to toss as she walks. Our Ivory Flower Ball is another great alternative because it has a handle for her to hold onto, and she can even put it over her wrist if she gets tired of holding it in her hands.  



Signs
Let your flower girl literally announce your arrival with a pretty sign that actually states "Here Comes The Bride!" You can hang it with ribbon to match your wedding colors, and this is another alternative that your flower girl simply has to carry and remember to smile. No pressure at all, and it looks adorable!  



Balloons
If you are the type of couple that wants to have a wedding that's all about the party, then bring some of that festive spirit into your decor. Simple birthday balloons won't do the trick for a special occasion like this, but an over-sized balloon or romantic and whimsical shape would look wonderful, and kids love carrying balloons! 



Bubbles
Something else kids love is bubbles. Another way to add fun and whimsy to your wedding is to let your flower girl blow a curtain of bubbles as she walks down the aisle before you. You don't have to save these for the end of the wedding, break them out at the beginning instead! This works best if your flower girl is a little older and can handle the bubbles without making a big mess.



Those are just a few alternative ideas for your flower girl to carry down the aisle. The possibilities are endless and only limited by your imagination. Browse through all of the unique and wonderful wedding items that we have at WhereBridesGo.com and you are sure to get inspired!

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.

For enlisted personnel, dress blues or Army greens should be worn. Remember, never wear a boutonnière with a military uniform. Military ribbons or medals are the only adornments permitted on the uniform.
