Flower Girl Basket Crackers

We're in the wedding off-season, so we're back at telling interesting anecdotes and giving tips for your wedding here on our blog!  Check us out each week for a new tip or story!

We love flower girls and the cute things they do during weddings.  Recently, we were able to add this story to the list.

It was a lovely November afternoon, and the processionals had begun.  Bridesmaids and groomsmen walked down the aisle and stood waiting.  The maid of honor made her entrance and took her place.  Next were the ring bearer and flower girl, brother and sister, children of the maid of honor.  The ring bearer, not quite two years old, ran down the aisle to his mom as fast as he could go.  His 4 year old sister, the flower girl, stood watching him before reaching into her basket to throw some rose petals.  Instead of petals, however, she pulled out a bag of crackers apparently meant to keep her little brother quiet during the ceremony.  She held them up waiting for someone to take them so she could do the job she was meant to.  Eventually, rose petals, not crackers, covered the aisle before the bride appeared.  

The wedding ceremony was beautiful.  Watching from the front row, the ring bearer sat in his aunt's lap, happily munching on crackers.
