Flower Girl Posies

More and more churches, synagogues, and ceremony sites are restricting the dropping of fresh flower petals along the aisle because the flowers may stain the carpet or floor. Choose from this list of alternatives for creative options to the flower petal tradition.

Floral Orb

Cover a plastic-foam ball with silk flowers and hang it from a looped ribbon so the flower girl can carry it as she walks down the aisle. Or, have a florist create a ball of fresh flowers.

Ribboned Wand

Instead of a basket, have the flower girl carry a wand embellished with fresh or silk flowers, a poof of tulle, and long, trailing ribbons.

Fabric Buckets

Fabric-covered tin buckets make lovely (and sturdy) carrying baskets for a flower girl. Fill with a bouquet if flower petals cannot be dropped. (See instructions in the link below)

Flower Girl Baskets

Fabric Purse

Your flower girl will be delighted to carry a special fabric purse filled with rose petals. Be sure to determine if your wedding venue allows dropping the petals; or, just fill the bag with silk petals or a small bouquet. (See instructions in the link below)

Flower Girl's Satin Purse

Small Bouquet

Let the flower girl carry a small nosegay that mimics the bride's bouquet.

Country Bouquet Holder

A ribbon handle added to this bouquet holder would make it an appropriate accessory for a flower girl. Fill the embellished wallpaper cone with rose petals. (See instructions in the link below)

Country Bouquet Holder

  • Floral Crown: Instead of carrying flowers, adorn a flower girl's hair with a crown of baby rosebuds.
  • Long-stemmed flowers: Rather than drop petals or flowerheads, have the flower girl pass out long-stemmed roses (with thorns removed) or other flowers to people seated along the aisles.
  • Basket of flowers: For a more natural look, give the flower girl a gathering basket filled with long-stemmed wildflowers, wired in so they don't fall out.
  • Bells: According to Irish custom, ringing bells chase away evil spirits and bring peace to a quarreling couple. The flower girl can either ring a bell as she walks down the aisle, or pass out bells to people seated along the aisles.
