My daughter is going to be our flowergirl. She will be 10 by the time the wedding comes around. She has always dreamed of being a flower girl.

 

I found her a tea length, strapless, A-line dress. It has netting that peeks out on the hem (like my dress) we will be putting a blue sash around the dress to match the wedding colors. It is not your typical flower girl dress (like posted above) - but it is very appropriate for a young lady.

 

I think at any age, just the thought that you thought of them to share in this special day will mean a lot to them!

I've seen plenty of flower girls in the 8-11 range and don't find it odd at all. I think it actually works better because they are old enough to understand what is going on and are not likely to get scared or cry or anything that is common amongst the preschool aged kids. You could also do the jr. bridesmaid thing and I agree with the others that you could ask her what she would like to be. The important thing is that you are including her - I have had little girls who were not included cry - so I think either option should be fine.

 

The other thing to remember is that this is *your* wedding and pretty much every wedding has its own dynamics so following rules or traditions is not always practical or fun - go with your gut and have a great time.
