Planning a wedding is no small task, and flowers are one of the most fun ways to express personal style on your special day. Brides usually have an idea of what they’d like for their own bouquet as well as their bridesmaids, but what about the flower girl? There are a wide variety of popular floral accessories for your little helper that will brighten her day knowing that you thought of her.
One of the most traditional flower girl accessories is a small basket of flowers matching the floral theme of the bride. This can be adorned with ribbons or greens, and can either contain a small arrangement of flowers or pretty petals to be strewn along the wedding aisle. Matlack Florist knows that sometimes little flower girls can get very excited walking down the aisle, so we provide a foam based arrangement in our baskets. This way, if the basket gets flipped upside down or thrown, the flowers stay in tact.
One of the wedding trends coming back in style is the pomander bouquet. This contains a foam based arrangement of flowers in a sphere shape, attached with ribbons to hold. These are a cute way to include an older flower girl who might not want to hold a basket. Hydrangea, baby’s breath, or sweetheart roses are all fantastic options to make the most out of your pomander, and accent flowers from the bride’s bouquet can really make them pop.
In addition to our previous post highlighting these fun accessories, flower crowns can be a great way to showcase your flower girl without having something to hold down the aisle. This option is neat way to care for a flower girl that is too young to hold a floral accessory in her hands, or one that is perhaps already holding the hand of a ring bearer or another bridesmaid.
Another fun trend coming up from the past few seasons is the floral wand. This consists of a single flower or a small bouquet on top of a long pole to be held. The top of the wand can be accessorized with wiring, jewels, or ribbons, and the pole can coordinate with the wrapping of the bridal party’s bouquets to give a cohesive look.
No matter what you choose, your flower girl will be ecstatic that you thought of her on your big day. Matlack Florist is proud to cater to a wide variety of different floral accessories for weddings, as well as every special event in your life. Keep stopping in and seeing what else we have to offer for each new season!
