Let’s be honest: you want a wedding that will keep guests on their toes, trying to guess what new and exciting moment is coming next. So before you make a petal payment with the local florist, you must consider these alternatives to the flowergirl toss. As a bonus, these have all been approved by a real-life flowergirl, meaning your little angel will surely have a spring in her step as she walks down the aisle!

1. Puppy

They say you should never work with children or animals; but when you put them together, you get wedding gold! This is the perfect way to keep your flowergirl happy, as well as include your furry best friend in the ceremony.

2. Banner

A personalised banner has become a huge trend. This is your chance to be creative and send a little message to your fiancé before you make your grand entrance.

3. Bells

Partner your ring bearer with a bell ringer by replacing flower petals with bells! It’s sure to ‘ring’ music to the ears.

4. Flower Wand

Most little girls feel about fairy wands the same way I feel about Louboutins. Let’s just say it’s always going to be a winner. Kapeesh?

5. Pinwheels

Pinwheels are an inexpensive way to inject some colour into the wedding party and the flowergirl can keep her own pinwheel bouquet for years to come as a memory of your big day.

6. Bubbles

Bubbles are a triple threat: kids love them, they’re super cheap and easy to source and they leave no mess!

7. Balloons

Balloons aren’t just for kid’s birthday parties. Different colours and designs can add a touch of playful romance to your ceremony.

8. Umbrella

If you’re having an outdoor wedding, a brolly is a fantastic option. They’re pretty, plus they’ll protect the delicate skin of your little flowergirl. Word of warning, this probably isn’t a great idea for a church wedding, you might get a gasp of horror from your superstitious family members.

9. Wagon

This has got to be the most adorable flower girl entrance we’ve ever seen! Deck the wagon out with gorgeous blooms and decor that will have your flower girls riding in style.

10. The Vows

The ring bearer gets the exciting task of delivering the rings, but if you want to make your flower girl feel super special too, you can give her the very important task of delivering the vows.
