The 8 Best Flower Girl Accessories

Trying to decide what to have your flower girl carry?

Perhaps you know exactly what you want for your bridal bouquet, ceremony decor and centerpiece arrangements, but just can’t quite decide when it comes to your sweet little flower girl ~

Here are our top eight suggestions for floral accessories for the flower girl – and it doesn’t have to be something to carry either!

Flower Girl Baskets
  1. Basket of petals is still the most popular choice our brides use for their flower girls, but sometimes the venue doesn’t want fresh petals on the aisle, or the bride doesn’t want to have to think about getting someone to pick up those petals ~  what to do then?

2.  Floral pomanders or kissing balls, are becoming very popular and they can be as simple as baby’s breath, or made of colorful carnations, mums or roses.  The balls are available in small sizes for young and medium and large for older girls.

3.  Floral garland for something different!  Of course, this only works if you have two flower girls.  If you want something other than the traditional flower girl posy bouquet or basket of petals – think about trying this!
