I've said it before...flower girls do what they want to do and you love them for it!
I have learned to caution Brides to wait until just as they walk down the aisle before giving flower girls their flowers. I learned this lesson years ago, before I had my own little flower girls...
One tiny girl around 2 years old had a lovely wristlet so she didn't have to contend with a basket and petals. I put her flowers on her wrist, and turned to fix a halo on another flower girl.
"No touch flowers!" I heard from a third girl. Startled, I glanced and realized a blossom was missing from the wristlet. Looking around, I hoped we'd find the flower and glue it back on... it had only been a second! No flower.
I asked the little flower girl..."where is the pretty flower?" She opened her mouth wide.
