If you’re having a seasonal wedding with seasonal décor, it’s a great idea to make a change to tradition and have your flower girl carry something a bit more interesting! For example, a great idea for a Halloween or autumnal wedding is to have your flower girl carry a small pumpkin or lantern down the aisle. She can then illuminate the path for the bride to follow, rather than littering it with the traditional petals. You could even use gold, red and yellow leaves instead of confetti.
Alternatively, if you’re living in an area that’s famous for a certain fruit or plant, consider having them incorporated into your décor and maybe have the flower girl carry a small basket of the fruit or produce – just make sure she’s comfortable carrying them and that the basket isn’t too heavy or unwieldy.
You could incorporate sentimental value into your flower girl’s role as well. For example, you could have her carry a love letter down the aisle to the groom, or better yet, have her deliver your vows in a small box that you can keep them in later, and for the rest of your life.
Whatever you choose to do, there’s a whole host of ways to make your ceremony extra creative and particularly memorable.
