Having delightful little girls act as flower girls in your wedding has been popular for decades. As you prepare for the wedding day you pick out charming dresses but don’t forget they will need baskets from which to pull out flower petals to throw as they march down the aisle.
As you look forward to your wedding day there are many things to plan. If the flower girls baskets are beautifully done they will enhance the wedding march. There’s a wide selection of baskets to choose from. Choices include the size and shape of the flower girl’s basket to the style, color and designs you want on the baskets.
There are four factors to consider when thinking about how you want your beautiful flower girl baskets made:
First, decide on the shape of the flower girl baskets you want the flower girls to hold. Traditional flower girl baskets come in four shapes – round, fan-shaped, inverted hat-shaped and square shaped. It’s your wedding and if you like you can come up with something unique to your taste.
Second, you will need to consider the style you want. For the conventional wedding, you can go with a more traditional style by using lace tied around the basked. You may also want to think about trying something different by using fabrics such as white satin, velvet, brocade or silk.
Third, take into consideration the age of your flower girl. If she is under five years of age she will need a basket that is easy to hold such as a plain round one. For older girls a fan-shaped flower girl basket or the inverted hat-style of basket will work. For a more formal wedding use white lace or satin for the baskets.
Fourth, you need to decide on what color baskets you want to use for the wedding march. Red, purple and pink are traditional colors whereas the blend of aqua and brown have a more sophisticated look. For an elegant look choose a special design or flower to be attached to the side of the basket.
When you take into consideration what you want the flower girls basket to look like you are that much closer to actually seeing your little flower girls carrying the perfect flower girl baskets on your special day!
