If your wedding date is close to Halloween, your flower girl can carry a small pumpkin or carved jack-o’-lantern down the aisle. Make sure the size of the pumpkin matches the size of the girl as a little girl will be overwhelmed by a full sized pumpkin. You can separate the pumpkin into 2 halves, with a led light in the bottom and rose petals on top. You can also fill up an old teapot with blooms for a perfect vintage alternative for your little girl. The teapot will bring out a rustic feel and is a great subject for photography.
Perfect for your tropical-paradise-of-a-wedding, you can fill up a coco husk with loose flowers or petals and have your little sweetie throw them out as she walks down the beach-perfect aisle.
To add a more unique and personal touch, you can build a small floral basket yourself. Choose a small basket made of wicker or wood or anything that catches your fancy. Tie ribbons into the basket choosing colours that complement the wedding colours. Try to decorate the basket with artificial flowers. One of the benefits of decorating with artificial flowers is that the basket will remain as beautiful as it was on the day of the wedding. This makes a wonderful keepsake for the flower girl. Add shapes and decorations that you fancy. Personalize it with drawings and writings. If you want you can include the flower girls to decorate the baskets too.
