Flower Boy?

So my family and my FH family has no little girls. My close friend who is a bridesmaid has a little boy who we are close with. Is it okay to break tradition and have a flower boy?

    Yup, it's your day! I am choosing to have no flower girl/ ring bearers saves a little money and makes sure I don't have any mid aisle meltdowns by kids Smiley smile You don't have to have any if you don't want to

    Do whatever you want. We’re planning ok having a kids free wedding so originally we weren’t planning on having either flower girl or ring bearer. But now we’re constantly making our grandmas flower girls as a way to incorporate them.

    You can do whatever you want, but flower *kids* aren’t necessary. Just have him as a ring bear and that’s it.

    I don’t have a close little man to us, so we’ve opted to have a “ring girl”! I think it’s absolutely fine to break tradition in order to accommodate someone you want to be a part of your big day!

    There is no need to have a ring bearer or a flower girl. If you want a ring bearer instead of the MOH or BM carrying rings, it does not matter if it is a boy or girl. And giving out flowers can be done by any child. Or a bridesmaid. Or your godmother, whoever. There is no matter of etiquette here. Just your preference. All choices are fine .

    Flower Boy? 1

    He can I guess.... I didn't have a flower girl so I don't know. My girls was my flower girls LOL. My girls had lanterns and "lit" the way for me so I didn't need one.

    I like that! More people used to have pages carry lights before them and in small semi lit rooms, or evenings outdoors, it is very striking. It is fairly common around here for a teen or regular bridesmaid to carry a basket of flowers to give out, rather than children. Particularly as few places allow tossing flower petals. And people with traditions from northern areas had to pay the Earth for cut flowers year round, not available, so people would not have every BM carry a bouquet, or have bouts and coursages.

    Yes!! why not?! he doesn't have to "throw flowers" you can have him do almost anything you want. toss lavender, blow bubbles, bring a sign down the aisle. he will look handsome and everyone will Awe at him.
