There’s a lot that goes into planning a wedding. Even if brides have been dreaming about their wedding day since they were little girls, there are still a lot of decisions to make once they’re all grown up with a ring on their finger.
A lot of the decisions are fun, like which cake to get and what food to have at the reception. Honestly, we really like any excuse to taste test food, especially cake.
It can also be a lot of fun to try on wedding dresses. While a bride may not find the dress of her dreams at first, every bride does eventually. Just like mister right is out there, so is the perfect wedding dress.
Other wedding decisions aren’t always as much fun. We’re talking about decisions regarding family and/or friends who may not always get along. Seating charts can get complicated pretty quickly.
There are also decisions to make about bridesmaids and groomsmen. You don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings when choosing who to ask to be the maid of honor and the best man.
Then there are the tasks that are usually reserved for the youngest members of the extended family, ring bearer and flower girl. It’s certainly adorable watching the young children walk down the aisle all dressed up, and kids always get super sweet reactions from the guests.
Sometimes brides want to do something a little bit unusual at their weddings, like choosing to have bridesmaids hold cotton candy instead of flowers, or choosing a grandmother to be the flower girl instead of a pint-sized tot.
Choosing a grandmother as a flower girl is a trend we’ve been seeing the past few years. Some happy couples choose to honor their grandmothers in this way by elevating them from wedding guests to an essential part of the wedding party. The grandmothers that get chosen for such a fun task seem to really enjoy being a part of the wedding too.
Grandma doesn’t even have to be able to walk down the aisle to be the flower girl. At one couple’s beautiful outdoor wedding, Grandma is all dressed up, complete with fairy wings, as another member fo the wedding party pushes her down the aisle to perform her flower girl duties. All of the wedding guests oooo and ahhh as they see her glide by.
After grandma rolls by, three little girls with fairy wings and fairy wands follow behind her. Watch this beautiful, sweet, unusual flower girl in the video below.
