The Origins & Meaning Behind Flower Girls

Who can resist an adorable flower girl? She exudes innocence and she melts our hearts with each step she takes.

According to wikipedia, the first flower girl was in service to a bride and groom of Ancient Rome; carrying sheaths of wheat and herbs for blessings of fertility and prosperity.

Hundreds of years later, Elizabethan brides and grooms would have a flower bearer in their wedding procession immediately following a group of merry musicians. This flower girl would carry a silver bride’s cup adorned in ribbons and holding a gilded rosemary branch. The entire path from the the bride’s home to the officiating church was carpeted in rose petals and soft rushes. Many tiny bouquets were prepared as gifts to wedding guests and the bride’s family home was decorated with knotted ropes full of blossoms and greenery.

In modern times, brides often select flower girl attire that mirrors their own beautiful wedding gown.

While fashion and tradition will forever evolve back and forth; the flower girl herself remains a consistent favorite within the wedding party.She is the sentimental connection between childhood and womanhood; and the whimsical reminder to all on-lookers of how magical and brief is innocence and childhood. And of course, the flower girl suggests to us all, including the bride and groom, how beautiful it is to have both children and love within the family.
