    I have a feeling that my 23 month old may not be old enough for the true flowergirl responsibilities. I'd love to hear some ideas from those of you who have incorporated children of a similar age into your wedding ceremony.

    I've thought of the MOH walking down with her but that's all I can really think of.

    Also any ideas for a way to maybe incorporate a little bit of a vow to her into the traditional vows?

      My FH has a daughter that will be 3 at the wedding and we are having her be the flower girl. I'm really not worried about it though!

          my son is going to be 3 at the time of our wedding & he will definately be the ring bearer! I have also seen the little one walking you down the isle alongside your father or whomever that may be & its super cute as well!

            23 is a bit young but there has been younger flower girls in history Instead of a basket with petals give her a kissing ball ; she will walk just before you so you can encourage her with your voice if she hesitates. Otherwise, you can walk down the aisle without your bouquet and have her come to you and give you your bouquet...

              Thanks Ayita, great idea. I think that I'll have to do more searching about incorporating her into the vows...

                We had a 21 month old as our ring bearer - He did carry the pillow but he wouldn't walk down the aisle by himself so we had his dad (who was one of our ushers) walk him down the aisle.. If you have someone that could walk with her that might work well. If she will carry a basket I'm sure that would be adorable :)..

                  My daughter is our flower girl. She will be 15 months old. I don't know about saying too young, it depends on your child and their maturity level. Cattie definitely wouldn't understand throwing petals so we are just having petals cover the aisle and Cattie will have a pomander and her cousin & my FSIL will walk her down. She will walk in between them.

                  She has seen the pomander and ran off w/ it once, and she LOVES it!!! She had a temper tantrum when we took it away!

                  I don't know about vows, great idea though! Good luck!

                    Little kids "messing up" make a wedding!
                    Someone else on the forum was going to have her son give her away. Even if you have her walk down with you and your dad (if he is giving you away) and then have her go off with him....
