So a little story to get started, my "neices" (best friend and matron of honors daughters) were my obvious choices for my flower girls even before I started any planning. When my best friend renewed her vowels her daughters were also her flower girls, my son was her ring bearer. Her oldest daughter would say for the longest time that she was going to marry my son, and after they were both in her moms wedding, my niece would tell everyone that she had married my son.
you know it was so completely cute (keep in mind there is absolutely no actual family relation between them).
Fast forward to when I went to pick up my wedding dress I wandered over to look at flower girl dresses, picked out one and my mom and I argued the whole way home over if a flower girl was suppose to wear white or if that was the mini bride. This was the first time I had ever heard of a mini bride. Now I am so confused because really and truly I do not know what the actual role is or means, but I just thought since I already do have two flower girls and two ring bearers it wouldn't hurt to just switch the roles for my niece and my son. Plus, I know my niece would absolutely love to get "re-married" haha.
My Question is firstly, can anyone help me out with what the role of a mini bride actually is? Is it just to look cute and carry the title or is there more to it?
Secondly, I am completely open to your opinion on what to do! I am getting more and more confused by the day and the more planning that comes my way!
Thanks In Advance!
