Shameless confession: I absolutely ADORE flower girl photos. What’s not to love? These little ones are the life of the party and literally make everyone attending your ceremony swoon over the sweetness. Sure, there might be a few sour patch kid moments throughout the day - when they’re not exactly getting their way. But the smiles (with or without a few missing teeth), the curls, and the itsy bitsy ballerina shoes more than make up for it.
I didn’t have a flower girl at my wedding, just the world’s cutest ring bearer, but I was close to asking a few friends if I could steal their tiny one as my #somethingborrowed for the day. You know, just to even out our sides. If my hubby got one, I wanted one too ;)
But really, having a flower girl or girls in your bridal party truly add the perfect amount of sparkle to your girl squad. And regardless of how much stress bridesmaid dress shopping can be, finding an oh-em-gee how-cute-is-she flower girl ensem is just plain fun.
Whether you’d like them looking like your mini me(s), dressed in white, ivory or any other alabaster iteration, or would prefer some color added to the tulle on tulle on tulle, you can call the shots. Then it’s all about making her spotlight extra special. Maybe you’ll have her rock a flower crown, maybe you’re plop her down in an equally presh wagon, or maybe you’ll think of something totally out-of-the-box for her to stash her petals. No matter what, you’ll just want to keep her happy (meltdowns aren’t the best), and you won’t mind sharing some of the attention on the aisle.
