Having a flower girl walk down the aisle has been a traditional part of weddings for years, but the traditional job has begun to change. It’s become common to see flower girls doing other things than sprinkle petals down the aisle. If you’re looking for a way to include a flower girl on your special day, check out some of the most popular flower girl jobs.If you have a toddler as a flower girl, the walk down the aisle alone might be too much for her. Instead bundle her up in a wagon and have a bridesmaid or another flower girl take the honors of pulling her down the aisle. This way, you can still have the little one as a part of your big day without worrying about her running away or having a fit in the aisle.

This new flower trend gives the flower girl something that is easy to carry down the aisle while looking pretty and feeling grown-up like a bridesmaid. (Photography via: Project Wedding)
Another option that I love is to have the flower girl carry a single large flower like an orchid or rose that is in the other bridesmaids’ bouquets. This is a great idea for an older flower girl as it helps her to feel like a bridesmaid while still giving her a slightly different look. (Photography via: Pinterest)
Of course, the biggest trend this year is to carry signs instead of flowers. This is a trend that we absolutely love! Check out some “Here comes the bride” signs we love! (Photography via: 100 Layer Cake)
For a whimsical and unique take on a flower girl, have her carry something entirely different from flowers. How adorable is this yarn basket? It’s such a unique idea, and everyone will love it! (Photography via: Ruffled)
When it comes to including those special little girls in your ceremony, don’t fret! There are so many ways to include them and make them feel special so find a way that fits with your wedding wishes. And if you don’t want to try out one of these new aisle styles, stick with the traditional petal throwing. It’s a classic for a reason!
