Who can resist the charms of a flower girl? They are super adorable and will always melt your heart with each step they take. The flower girl can be traced back to the Romans carrying bundles of wheat or herbs such as lavender to guarantee prosperity and fertility. However, the Victorian flower girl is the one who resembles our modern day flower girl the most. She is young and innocent, dressed in all white carrying a basket of flowers preceding the bride.

Over time wedding fashion and traditions have evolved. Majority of the time we will see the young girl in a white dress, representing purity, dropping petals.
From the Victoria era, flower girls would also carry a floral hoop representing that true love never ends. Wearing a circular wreath of flowers in the hair is an adorable wedding fashion adapted from this tradition.

Another new trend that I just can not get enough of is flower girls holding signs announcing that the bride is coming! Seriously so cute and signs are so easy to DIY!
