Ring Bearers & Flower Girls

What do flower girls and ring bearers have in common? They are young people in your life that you love and selected to be in your bridal party.

Choosing these special young attendants can bring a little apprehension given the unpredictable behavior in this age set, but don’t let that stop you!  Our team will be there to help the young ones make their way down the aisle, but read on to see what advice they have for you when it comes to working with flower girls and ring bearers.

If you have particularly young attendants, Amy Hudon, Director of Sales and Events for The Estate at Moraine Farm, suggests that the flower girls or ring bearers do not practice in the ceremony rehearsal. “They always do great at the rehearsal but then the next day, there is suddenly more than a hundred people staring at them and they get nervous…”

“Flower girls and ring bearers should attend the rehearsal, so they are familiar with the space…but just wait until the actual ceremony for them to walk down the aisle, and they will be none the wiser.

Tim Holmes, Director of Sales and Events at The Bradley Estate and Fruitlands Museum, reminds us, “Rehearsed or not, it won’t go perfectly…keep it light and go with the flow.

Maura McCarthy, Director of Sales and Events at The Crane Estate, says, “It helps to have more than one flower girl or ring bearer, or even a junior bridesmaid there to help out. There is strength in numbers!

And perhaps Jessica Belanger, Director of Sales and Events for Fireside Catering, sums it up perfectly, “You have to let the kids just be kids, and no matter what they do it’s going to be adorable!
