I've never really wanted to buy one... I want to DIY mine! But every time I go to michaels or joann's and I'm in the wedding section, I can't help but wonder... Why are they so small? How many petals can it actually hold? Enough to make your aisle runner very pretty before you walk down on it? If Any of you girls already married used one, please tell me your experience? Was it enought flower petals for you? How many girls did you have? Is there anyone else out there who wonder the same thing I do?!?!? lol if any of you have pics show me!?! Of anyone else is DIY yours show me too!! Smiley smile

    They are small because the FGs are usually small. A big one is too awkward for a small girl to handle...they do hold enough to walk down the aisle as long as they don't grab huge handfuls

    I actually did think about that once... FG are usually from the ages of 3-4 lol so that makes sense... My FGs are 6&7 lol I think they might look a little weird with those tiny baskets haha

    I had my flower girls carry copper pails instead of the baskets. I paid $3 per pail from my local Tractor Supply Co. plus spray paint and ribbon to dress them up. It was WAY cheaper than buying the $20 baskets since I needed 3 of them, and they were much bigger.

    Nah, should be fine. My niece is almost 8 and was in a wedding a few months ago; the basket looked fine.
