Dresses, Wands, and Two Cute Flower Girls

I’d like to introduce you to two of the most excited flower girls ever:

I’ll call the older one “A” and the little toothless one there is “C”.

These two cuties are Mr. Tiramisu’s cousins (A. is his Goddaughter as well), and I have no doubt that they will play their roles as flower girls flawlessly! They take their jobs very seriously, and ever since we asked them to be in our wedding, they have reminded me about it on every occasion where we’ve seen them. Their Mom and I have been emailing back and forth about flower girl dresses for awhile now, and I think we’ve finally settled on this one from Flower Girl Dress For Less:


Originally I was going to have the girls carry pomanders:


But just this week, my photographer posted this picture of a flower girl wand:

I think A. and C. would have so much fun waving a be-ribboned wand around that I might look into this idea.


What do you think? Would too much chaos ensue? What else could they carry?

    Please do the flower wands! They are so adorable (both the girls and the wands) and the girls are the perfect ages to really show them off.

    Oh – you’ll get a little bit of chaos as they wave them around. But you’ll also get some DARLING smiling faces and great giggle moments for your guests to really give them a warm, welcomed, relaxed feel.

    Most weddings start 5-10 minutes late, and the guests can get a little antsy in that time. But those cutie pies bouncing down the aisle waving their beautiful wands will make them smile and set them at ease, which is really how you want your guests to feel. That way when you come in, they are ready to be awed, instead of a “finally!” feeling preceding the “wow shes glowing!” thoughts.

    LOVE the wand idea. If I were having flower girls, i’d steal that idea from you!

    I love the wands! Any little girl would be tickled to have such a pretty wand! They’d feel like such a princess! I think that is the best idea! :)

    i love that the wands are different, but it would depend on their age and muscles! are they heavy?

    I agree chaos will ensue. But just impress upon them to be very good during the ceremony, and give them the wands at the last minute and they should be beautiful until the reception. After the ceremony, it doesn’t matter as much if they wands get a little smushed, right?

    I wanted to do wands too, but I asked the parents of the girls how they thought their kids might handle them… I was vetoed, and the parents thought the kids might use them as swords and weapons… so needless to say, we’re doing pomanders. :P My situation is a little different than yours though, since I have 6 flowergirls… so maybe it will be different with your girls. I’d ask the parents though, to see what they think.

    Oh my goodness how cute are those little girls?!? Are they really as angelic as that picture makes them look?

    I love the wands and think they’re so perfect for a flower girl! (They’ll look great with the dresses.) How do they (ostensibly) hold the wands as they’re walking down the aisle? I think as long as the ring bearer isn’t their brother (in which case they’d take every opportunity to bop him over the head with the wands), the wands are a great idea!

    I love the idea of wands! I’ve seen a couple on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9481919

    And there are also some basic ribbon wands!

    We are giving her the traditional basket with flowers for the ceremony but we made her a miniature bouquet just like the bridesmaids but smaller for photos. I am sure it will make her feel extra special to have one like the big girls.

    Those are our flower girl dresses too! Aren’t they just the cutest ever?

    I love the idea of a flower wand. If my wedding wasn’t in a week and a half, I’d be calling my florist right now!

    These are awesome! I love them. We aren’t allowed to throw rose petals in the church, so I need something like this. I don’t think that they would be any more chaotic than the pomanders.

    I think the wands are a great idea! If you’re concerned about weight, your florist should be able to create something light and with a skinny pole.

    We are doing a flower wand for our flower girl too, and I’m so excited! I hadn’t seen any photos of one before, so thanks for the post! I just sent it to my sister (the mom of our fg).

    choas is a potential no matter what element you end up using. basing it off of the kind of kid i was, well, the petals in a basket would have been already sprinkled then picked back up because i would try to swing the basket around as fast as i could to keep the petals from falling, a pomander would have been a great weapon as would a wand so really, what choice is there? lol, i was quite the handful. but honestly, i’d go with the wand. there’s a touch of whimsy and the girls may feel like fairies which would be super cute.

    LOVE this idea! In fact, if I were one of your FGs I’d LOVE you too – fairy wands are so IT for little girls.

    Aw, pomanders and wands are both *very* cute but I think the wands will be most fun for the little girls :)

    How do you make them sturdy enough so that they do not break?

    Ours were made with a fairly sturdy wooden dowel that was painted. Very pretty and the girls loved them :)
