Flower girls are special little ladies chosen to precede the bride down the aisle. They are usually dressed in similar colors to the bride and carry a basket full of petals to drop on the floor. Tradition does not have to play a role in the design of a girl’s flower basket, it should be adapted to the theme or atmosphere of the wedding. Put together a fresh and funky basket that complements your wedding decor and make your flower girl stand out.
Bring out bling in your wedding of bedazzling a small metal or plastic simple flower basket for flower girl to wear. Strass can be found in hobby shops and comes with an adhesive backing or can be glued on with tacky glue. Design a pattern or create the bride and groom’s initials on the basket with beads. Stones come in different shapes, sizes and colors to coordinate with any wedding theme.
Match the flower basket designs to the theme of the wedding. For example, if the theme is beach inspired, create a small sand bucket in a basket and adorn it with hanging starfish and sea shells. Fill it with sand and glitter and have the girl drop as on the way down the island. A rock-n-roll wedding can consist of a black basket filled with bright flowers and adorned with fur, pearls and glitter.
