Prepare the littlest one for their roles in the wedding. Prepare your flower girl for her big-day debut and the little due for the march down the aisle.

Flower girl duties and details: 

The flower girl, usually an adorable little lady aged three to eight, proceeds down the aisle just before the maid of honor, scattering rose petals down the bridal path. She follows the ring bearer (if there is one), and sometimes she will even precede the bride.

Never underestimate the power of the buddy system. I love the idea of having two flower girls pairing up ring bearer and flower girl so that they can proceed together, side by side. Partnering will also give them added confidence.

Ring bearer duties: 

The ring bearer, traditionally a small boy aged four to eight, walks down the aisle just before the flower girl (if there is one), carrying a pillow with two rings tied to it. Since it’s not the greatest idea to entrust gold ring to a 6 year old, the rings are usually fakes. Whatever you choose to have the ring bearer carry, be sure he’s told about his duties ahead of time. It’s probably best to include him in the rehearsal dinner, so the full implication of his duties don’t come to him as a shock.
