Our church charges a small fee (25$) for the use of flower petals in the sanctuary of the church because of the mess they make. I thought about using a runner as well but i don't want them collecting in my dress and staining the bottom of it. So I'm trying to think of another job for my flower girl (my almost 4 yr old niece). I have a few ideas but wanted to get your opinions on these.
1.) I was thinking of having her and my nephew (5 yr old ring bearer) walk down together with just a potted plant in her basket instead of petals.
2.) Having a basket of stemmed flowers and she can just go down the aisle and give them to a few people along the way.
3.) Have a mini bouquet made up for her to walk down with to give to our minister.
What do you all think?? any opinions on my ideas? or have ideas your willing to share? Much Appreciated!
