Flower Girl Basket Alternatives
A flower girl star wand is something every flower girl would love to carry! By Jennifer Raichman.
Want a more rustic vibe? Opt for this grapevine heart wand instead! Handmade by Michele’s Cottage.
Planning a vintage wedding? This Victorian inspired wand features silk hydrangea petals and comes with a matching headband. By Kate Kate NYC.
A sign tells guests the bride is on her way. One example? This “Here Comes the Bride” sign: always a cute touch! By Rustic Blend.

One of my favorites is this “Here Comes the Love of Your Life” by Just for Keeps:
Another type of sign is a banner, which is one terrific option when you have two flower girls. Each can hold a side and walk down the aisle together. This banner is handmade by Little Zebra’s Boutique.
A lace or floral tambourine is a fun way for the flower girl to announce the bride’s arrival! Plus, she’ll love to play with it even after the ceremony. By Alternative Journals.
