Even though having a flower girl is optional, including one of your favorite little ones is always a nice way to make them feel a part of your special day. Of course, not only is her main job to look adorable and happily make it down the aisle, but also scattering floral petals along the aisle. Instead of having your flower girl carry a basket of petals, here are three alternative smaller bouquets you may want to consider:

Jillian & Tim
From the Photographer: “Every single detail of this wedding was spectacular and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph Jillian and Boomer’s wedding day. After a lovely ceremony at the families home church, the couple celebrated with friends and family at Jillian’s parent’s home/dairy in Tulare, California. Cocktails by the pool and then an amazing tented dinner reception, topped off by an over the top dance party with a live band. But that wasn’t the end of the evening, on the way out of the reception, guests were greeted with a taco bar for a late night snack. Brilliant. I have to say that in all my years of shooting weddings I have never seen guests having so much fun. There were over 20 vendors for this wedding and I was highly impressed with the wonderful wedding coordinator, Tanya Fulghum of Soiree Event Planning that helped pull this entire event together.” –Rochelle Mort Photography
