Here Comes…the Flower Girl

The tradition of the flower girl is timeless. She scattered herbs and grains in classical Greek and Roman times, mind
where medieval flower girls carried sheaths of wheat. A floral hoop, which symbolized eternal love, was her bouquet in Victorian times, or she could have carried a basket and scattered petals. Through the twentieth century flower girl fashion mirrored the styles of the times. Often, especially in society and celebrity weddings, the only attendants to the bride were children. Today we still love flower girls as they bring a special beauty, innocence and whimsy to the wedding ceremony.
