Duties of the Flower Girl
Wow how cute these little attendants are. Often one flower girl is chosen by the couple to participate in their wedding party. The ideal age for a flower girl is usually between three to seven years old. Obviously at this young age it is hard to expect much from them, so instead of these cute little ladies having responsibilities they are given simple tasks and duties.
Duties of the Ring Bearer
It is always nice to see young family members take part in weddings. Unlike little girls who have many positions to fill in weddings, boys are limited and have very few. The title as ring bearer is one such position that is available to a young boy. Often this young boy is a family member of the groom or the bride. He is usually between the ages of three to seven years old.

The biggest task that they will encounter throughout the wedding day is the long walk down the isle at the ceremony. This can be intimidating even for the older bridesmaids let alone for a young attendant. For this reason the flower girl is often paired up with a junior bridesmaid or most commonly a ring bearer. Parents of the young attendants are best seated at the end of the isle so that they can lure their child and add awaiting comfort. 

If you are the parent of a young attendant, you must be feeling very proud and excited. During the months approaching the wedding it is important for you to prepare your child for the role they will have to proceed with on the day of the wedding. For most young girls this is an exciting time. They often look forward to dressing up and being center of attraction. Commonly however, fear sets in when it’s their turn to proceed down the isle. This is a common behavior among young children and even adults. The stare of onlookers with high expectations can be quite intimidating. This can easily be combated however by merely predicting their behavior course based on the situation and making alternative methods of supporting them through it.

As a parent of the flower girl you will be responsible for the cost of her attire, getting her to and from the rehearsals and pre-wedding parties that she may be invited to. 
 

The flower girls duties in a wedding will include-

  • Attire and accessories paid for by her family
  • Participates in the rehearsal but does not usually attend the rehearsal dinner
  • She walks alone or with company directly before the bride and brides father during the processional
  • Often holds a basket of flower petals to scatter down the aisle, depending on the child this can become a nervous time and the scattering of flowers is forgotten during her intense walk. A simple nosegay arrangement like the bridesmaids may be more suitable and easier for her to handle
  • She will walk with the ring bearer directly behind the couple during the recessional
  • A junior bridesmaid or an older girl in the family may be used as a baby sitter for the flower girl to ensure she is taken care of and that she remains clean and tidy for picture

The flower girls attire is often white and sometimes resembles the bride’s wedding gown. The bride at times selects her attire but in many cases it is left up to the child’s family to choose an appropriately suitable style on their own. The flower girl is often included in some pre-wedding parties, such as the wedding shower and ceremony rehearsal but not the rehearsal dinner.
