    Hi Ladies,

     

    I've search this forum through and through for ways/poems on how to ask your Flower Girls to be in your wedding. With no such luck, I thought I'd post a few poems I found off the Internet. Please share your thoughts on these and let me know which ones you prefer or if you have any of your own? I can't decide on which poem to use for my DIY - Will you be my Flower Girl cards.

     

    ************************************

    A little lady carries flowers
    and brings a small bouquet
    She helps us as we celebrate
    a joyful wedding day
    She is a princess in her gown
    A picture come to life
    She brings such joy in helping us
    Become man and wife
    We are glad that she can stand with us
    So, graceful and so tall
    and help make this special time
    The very best of all.

    Will you be my flower girl?

    ***************************************

     

    When I was just a little girl,
    About the size of you,
    I dreamed one day I'd fall in love
    And then get married, too.
    So now that I am all grown up,
    About to be a bride,
    I want you for my flower girl
    To be right by my side.
    For it is common knowledge that
    A wedding's not complete,
    Without a pretty flower girl
    Like you, who's dear and sweet.
    Will you be my flowergirl?

    *******************************************

     

    For My Flower Girl

    You are so very young, but the years will pass by
    and you'll too be a bride, in the blink of an eye.

    While you may not remember, the day that I married,
    the part that you played, or the basket you carried.

    There will be a day, that will burn bright like an ember.
    The day you will wed, you will always remember.

    So here is a hankie, for the day you will say...
    "I need "something old" for my wedding day"

    All My Love Sweetheart.

    ***********************************

     

    Roses are red, violets are blue

    We need a flower girl…

    And we want her to be you!

    ***********************************

     

    My Flower Girl

    When the music begins
    and it's time to go,
    you'll carry a basket
    with ribbons and bows.

    This basket is filled
    with petals this day
    and you'll have
    an important part to play.

    Your hair will be pretty
    all done up in curls,
    my sweet little one,
    you're the flower girl.

    This little hanky's
    a keepsake for you,
    along with your basket
    please carry it too.

    It will hold many memories
    of a day filled with fun
    and all of my thanks
    for your part so well done.

    ***************************************

     

    For My Flower Girl

    Someday you’ll remember back
    upon this wedding day,
    a memory of your childhood
    that will with you always stay.

    To help you keep this memory
    hold this hanky in your hand
    as you walk the aisle
    like a princess, oh so grand!

    For someday in the future
    you too will be a bride,
    excitement all around you,
    bridesmaids by your side.

    Then you’ll need a hanky
    to wipe your joyous tears,
    the hanky you’ve kept tucked away
    for all these many years.

    Good luck it will bring you
    as the “something” you call old,
    many years from now when
    you wear a band of gold...

    Thank you, so much, for being
    my Flower Girl.

      I like this one the best...simple and sweet

       

      When I was just a little girl,
      About the size of you,
      I dreamed one day I'd fall in love
      And then get married, too.
      So now that I am all grown up,
      About to be a bride,
      I want you for my flower girl
      To be right by my side.
      For it is common knowledge that
      A wedding's not complete,
      Without a pretty flower girl

      Will you be my flowergirl?

        I think that this one is cute if she is older:

        But if she is younger maybe:

         

        Roses are red, violets are blue

        We need a flower girl…

        And we want her to be you!

         

        I also think that the hankie idea is sweet...especially if she is a niece or something!

          Thanks ladies.

           

          I ended up going with the two poems below because one flower girl is 8 yrs old and the other is only 5 years -- so I think both poems suit their ages. :)
