We want my daughter (who will be 14 months) to be the flower girl at our wedding but my fiancé doesn’t want any extra people involved.
Has anyone had any luck with a 14 month old walking themselves down the aisle without help?😅

I’ve been thinking about having her dad give her a little toy or something when she gets to the end if that might help lol!

    I wouldn't plan on her being able to do that herself. Kids are so unpredictable as it is. We will have a 4yo flower girl and 6yo ring bearer and I am already fully expecting that at least one will need to be heavily bribed in order to just walk and not do anything special lol.

    Do you have a ring bearer or another kid you could include to maybe pull her in a wagon or walk with her holding hands? Why doesn't your fiancé want others involved?

    I’m honestly not sure. We don’t have bridesmaids, maid of honor, ring bearer or anything. It’s just him, our daughter, and then my father and I that will be walking down the aisle.

    Is your daughter already walking steadily? I know you said she’ll be 14 months by then so she’s about 10 months now, right? My older daughter walked at 10 months, but I wouldn’t count on a 14 month old making it down the aisle alone. Can she walk with dad or you?

    I think I might ask if he will walk her down I hadn’t thought about that! I was going to have her walk me but my dad said that he really wanted to and our aisle isn’t very wide. She’ll be 10 months on the 24th and isn’t even standing in her own yet so I don’t think she’ll make it alone down the aisle but he really wants her to so that we don’t have to include extra people.

    Is she even walking yet? Because its possible that she may not even be walking by then. I definitely wouldn't plan for her to walk comfortably down the aisle by herself lol kids that young tend to get distracted very easily

    She’s 9.5 months and not walking yet. I want her to have someone with her.
    Her dad doesn’t want a lot of extra people in the wedding. I’ve talked about someone helping her walk down but he doesn’t seem to love that plan. It’s looking like he might just have to deal with it though🤷🏼‍♀️

    I think someone else suggested this, but maybe have your fiance walk with her? A lot of grooms walk down the aisle themselves anyway, so maybe just have her go with him?

    Maybe just have her walk with him, that would be cute!

    I think not only is this effective and cute - but think of the awesome future opportunity to have a photo of him "walking her down the aisle" at 14 months, next to an eventual photo of him walking her down the aisle at her own wedding.

    I’m a day of coordinator and have worked 100+ weddings, and the littles like that almost never want to do it. There are so many people all watching them, they get overstimulated easily and someone has to help them if they go at all.


    Movies make it seem cute, reality is it may be someone dragging the kid down the aisle and you see it or hear it right before you walk down and then you’re worrying about your kid.

    I think your fiance walking her would be super cute! my cousin recently got married and her 2 year old was the flower girl, well right before she went to walk down, she tripped and fell and had a melt down so the groom had to go pick her up and walk her down the aisle and it was honestly one of the cutest moments and people loved it. also made some super cute pics!

    I think the idea of your daughter being your flower girl is super cute, but I absolutely would not expect her to walk herself down the aisle at 14 months, nor would I bank on her "throwing petals" on her own.

    You should expect to have someone walk her, or perhaps tow her in a wagon or something. Your fiance could walk with her (and help her disperse flower petals) and then your dad could follow walking with you.
