The custom of flower children scattering petals along the bride and groom's path at a wedding is a pagan tradition that is now celebrated at many weddings and was originally intended to ensure a child-filled future for the newlyweds.
Nowadays, the little guests primarily lend a festive and charming ambience and enchant the wedding party with their presence.
As the name suggests, flower children are tasked with scattering flowers along the way. Alternatively, they can also scatter bubbles and - if possible on site - confetti.
Usually the children are 3-9 years old. But if you have only slightly younger or older children in your family and acquaintances, that's no problem at all. Theoretically, any child can be a flower child. The main thing is that it can walk independently and understands what it is doing. How many flower children you would like to have at your wedding, you can of course also decide for yourself.
Here, of course, your personal taste is in the foreground. If you want to keep it simple and elegant, you can choose the outfits for the flower children to match your bridal looks and decor. Unlike the adult guests, flower girls are allowed to wear a white dress. Flower boys can wear a classic black suit or a children's blazer with jeans. For matching accessories, we recommend floral hair wreaths for girls and floral pins for the boys.
