Wedding Planning Tip! Creative Flower Girl Alternatives: Unique Things to Carry

Give your flower girl something more fun and creative to carry down the aisle.

Pets – You can have her walk or carry your pet down the aisleBalloons -Replace the flowers by handing your flower girl a bouquet of tiny balloons to walk down the aisle with instead. It will be magical in photos.

Leaves -leaves are a go-to for the flower girl’s stroll down the aisle during fall weddings.

Confetti -What can a flower girl throw instead of flowers?

Confetti. Your flower girl can kick off your entrance with colorful confetti tossed all over the aisle.

A Little Purse – How cute would a little purse that matches her flower girl dress be?

For even more cuteness, you can let her carry the wedding vows in her purse and hand them to you when it’s time to exchange them.

Feathers- Soft feathers gently floating down next to your flower girl as she prances along.

Seashells -What does a flower girl carry for a beach wedding? How about a coconut filled with tiny seashells.

A Sign -Send flower girls down the aisle carrying a sweet sign with a message reading something like “Here comes the bride”
Pine Cones -Have the flower girl toss miniature pine cones for a perfect winter wedding touch.

A Candle or Lantern -Flameless candles will make it safe.

Twinkle Lights in a Mason Jar -nothing beats twinkle lights wound up in a mason jar. From a distance, it looks like fireflies and the effect is magical.Bubbles -Give your flower girl a bottle of bubble solution and a wand and let her blow beautiful little bubbles for a whimsical walk.

Flower Stems -Give the flower girl a basket of single flowers that she can hand to guests seated along the aisle.

Paper Hearts -Your wedding day is all about love, so tossing out paper hearts is totally apropos.Ribbon Wand or Pinwheels – it will make her feel like a little fairy princess.
Leis -For a Hawaiian twist, have your flower girl carry leis down the aisle, which the bride and groom can later give to each other to wear during the ceremony.

Years from now, all that will remain of your special day is your photographs, so choosing your photographer is one of your most important wedding day decisions.
