  • Make sure ther is a back up plan. Like of she is unwilling to walk down on her own the Maid of Honor or someone can escort her or even carry her. Make sure you are near the front so if she gets fidgety she can come sit down with you. Make sure your friend understands that 3 year olds are not always predictable but it can make for memorable moments for sure!

  • yes mommie is right. have a plan B. You can have an older girl behind her just in case. She will love being in the wedding. good luck.

  • DD was a flower girl @ 3, she took her role very seriously. She can often be shy, but she practiced, and did very well. It may've helped she got to follow her 6 y/o cousin the other flower girl.

  • Little girls always steal the show at the wedding. I went to a wedding where Daddy had to carry the little one and she threw flowers over his shoulder and another where the little girl dropped all the flowers and screamed and ran down the aisle, both instances adorable, something to talk about and sadly more memorable than other elements of the wedding. She's your beautiful baby, just let her shine in whatever colors she chooses to reflect that day and make sure you have lots of cameras going!
