Flower Girl Number One at Any Wedding

We all know that the commonly rated most important person in a wedding is the bride. But where does the flower girl rank in the order of importance? They probably rank much higher than anyone would suspect. American ceremonies generally include at least, and in some cases, multiple flower girls. There is more to the story than a gorgeous dress, pretty flowers, and a cute smile. There is a history behind the flower girl.

In roman times weddings were often prearranged and couples did not even meet before the special day. That is not true now. The flower girl used to sprinkle the aisle with wheat and herbs that symbolized fertility, because it was important to procreate much more centuries ago. Now, with fertility not being the number one reason for a wedding, the wheat and herbs have been replaced with petals from sweet smelling flowers.

Have you ever wondered why the flower girl’s dress so closely resembles the bride? It is simple actually. When the flower girl goes in front of the bride it is to signify the bride in her childlike stage. Then when the bride comes in the guests can see her as a woman. It is often symbolizing the growth from child to adult within the course of the wedding.
