Flower Girl Style

Flower girls are sure to be an adorable part of your wedding day, getting guests camera-ready before your big aisle debut! With their dresses picked, the shoes and tights ready, flowers are the final and important component to the girls' overall look and role in the wedding.

Below, we created a list of the most popular ideas for your flower girl's flowers! Find what works with your wedding style and what she's comfortable sporting! Remember, you can always mix it up and have each flower girl carry something different.

1. Head Wreaths
Head wreaths are on trend for 2016. They are popular for adults, with many brides and even guests sporting large, blooming floral crowns. We always love head wreaths on our flower girls too! Head wreaths never fail to create an enchanting, ethereal look. Oversized crowns with lots of flowing greens and scattered blossoms are an adorable look for your little one!

2. Petals to Throw
Petals are fun! It is always so sweet to see flower girls throwing loose petals down the aisle and creating a little trail for you to walk down at the ceremony. Typically, rose petals are the best choice, although little blossoms can also create a sweet look. Many times a decorated basket is the perfect vessel for the petals, although other creative ideas like handmade paper cones can create a signature look. Before deciding that your flower girl will toss petals, be sure to check with your venue to see if they allow them to be thrown.

3. Handheld Bouquet
Miniature bouquets are simply adorable. Having mini versions of the bridesmaids' bouquets creates a cohesive look and lets your flower girl feel like one of the adults. When choosing this style for your flower girls definitely consider their age in your decision. A handheld bouquet requires a little more care and attention when carried.

4. Pomander
Pomanders are another great choice if you want your girls to carry flowers down the aisle. Unlike the handheld bouquets, pomanders are great for all ages because they are a hands-free look. A thick loop of ribbon allows the ball of flowers to be easily carried, even by small hands. An array of flowers can be used to make pomanders for an overall fun and elegant look.

5. Basket with Flowers
Baskets with flowers are a traditional look for your flower girls to carry. Fun elements like the beaded purses below can add a colorful twist to this traditional style. Like the pomander, baskets can be easy to carry and an essentially hands-free design. Many times the basket can become a keepsake for the flower girl after the wedding is over.

5 Hot New Wedding Trends for 2016

1. Long tables for a more intimate dinner vibe.
The experts at Bridal Guide are saying round tables are out and long tables are in. Any setting that creates less of a banquet feel and more of an intimate gathering is on trend in 2016. We love this shot by Lisa Rigby Photography, that highlights an amazing feature of this unique Provincetown wedding: a long table down a dock. For this table we created an array of varied arrangements with vintage milk glass and textural blossoms.

2015 was full of blooming, organic florals and the bloggers at StyleMePretty predict that 2016 will  be no different. Bring on the garden roses. Bring on the dahlias. 2016 here we come.

3. Metallics, Metallics, Metallics! Specifically, Rose Gold is going to be a popular color for 2016.
As time has shown, metallics never get old! The color predictors at Glamour, are saying rose gold is in. Metallics add the perfect touch of fun and sophistication to any event. We love this shimmery rose gold sequin linen featured on the sweetheart table at one of our weddings. It made the perfect pop of glamour.

 

4. Grand Exits!
Whether it's sparklers, flags, kazoos or confetti, grand exits are just as fun as grand entrances! Exits make for a perfect photo opp with a more casual + fun feel because the night is in party mode! As HuffPost Weddings explains, it's a great way to keep guests engaged 'til the end. Also, fun ideas after the exit like food trucks or takeaway items are always an extra treat for guests!
