  • This summer 2 of my daughters got married (We live in Arkansas one got married in Alabama the other in Colorado). The first had no adult attendants only her youngest sister (6) as a flower girl she represented all of the 4 sisters that couldnt make it to the wedding. My other daughter had bridesmaids but no flower girl because the 6 year couldnt make it to her wedding. No one at either wedding seem to think anything was weird. It is YOUR wedding enjoy it!

  • Flower girl, (boy) ring bearer. Don't make a little boy carry flowers. After years of hearing about it from friends and family, he may never forgive you. (lol)

  • No you don't. Neice had a ring bearer, but no flower girl. My sister had 2 flower girls, but no ring bearer. I've been to a wedding that had both, I've been to a wedding that had neither. It's all your own preference.

  • We didn't have a flower girl. Wanted two, but it didn't work out in the end.

  • And, you don't really NEED either one. Have the best man carry your ring, the Bridesmaid carries the grooms ring.
