It’s wedding season!
During the summer months, many couples opt gather together with family and friends to celebrate their love and committment to one another through thoughtfully and sentimentally orchestrated wedding ceremonies. Annually, it is during this season, we receive the highest number of wedding etiquette questions from brides-to-be and wedding planners. We have therefore decided to begin a series to address the most commonly asked questions and etiquette “hiccups” we’ve observed.Today’s topic is: FLOWER GIRLS
Flower girls scatter flower pedals before the bride or may simply carry elegantly adorn baskets of flowers or bouquets.
They walk directly in front of the bride unless a ring-bearer has been included in the ceremony, in which case the flower girl precedes him.
Flower girls are typically young relatives or the bride or groom or the daughter of a close friend. Flower girls should be between the ages of three and seven years old.
The flower girl’s dress should be paid for by her family and should be similar to the brides-maids’ dresses, but should be appropriate for a child.
Flower girls should plan to attend the wedding rehearsal, but are not required to attend the rehearsal dinner or shower. Parents may decided whether her participation at these events is appropriate given her age.
