In a wedding, we usually see flower girls who dress in flower girls dresses for weddings. The appearance of flower girls signals that the bride will come in. They usually walk behind the bridesmaids and before the bride. Sometimes, flower girls strew the flower petals along the aisle at their side. Flower girls wear the wedding flower girls dresses and appear in wedding photos. They also will be announced by wedding DJ at reception and participate the first dance if bride and groom wish. The flower girls putting on simple flower girl dresses are also the spotlight of the wedding.
During the Ceremony
While most of the bridal party is expected to stand at the bride’s side
during the ceremony, it’s rather unreasonable to expect a young child to
do so, especially if it’s a long ceremony. Designate one of the
bridesmaids to keep an eye on her and hold her hand if needed. If she
starts fidgeting or misbehaving, the bridesmaid should bring her to her
parent’s pew, where she should sit for the duration. She’s not required
to walk back up the aisle in the recessional.
During the Reception
It’s up to you whether or not you want children attending your
reception. It’s perfectly acceptable to have her attend the ceremony but
not the festivities afterwards. Once again, keep in mind the child’s
age. There’s a good chance young children will act up during the
reception. If you’ll be providing a baby sitting service for guests with
young children, she could play with the other kids when not having her
picture taken or being announced by the disc jockey.
