I'm going to be having two flower girls ages 4 and 6 in my wedding party.  I was wondering if anyone had some ideas for what they could carry down the aisle.  Our colours are brown and orange and it's a Thanksgiving themed wedding.

My my first and probably most obvious idea would be leaves... Smiley
Leaves, greenery and maybe a few flowers like this http://www.karensflowerhouse.com/images/Wedding/image-bouquets/fall%20flower%20girl.jpg

Just seems like that would fit so well with Fall, Thanksgiving and your colors.

Do more of what makes you happy.

same here... fall wedding, two flower girls, 4 and 6 (spooky eh?)  Cheesy

mine are carrying these baskets and they will be full of leaves (silk probably) to scatter down the aisle.  i also thought of doing the pomanders... this one is rather fallish

My little sister will be 4 at the time of our wedding. She'll be carrying a basket (silver with green and cream ribbons) with white and sheer petals (silk) and ivy leaves (also silk). We bought the ivy in springs (50% off from Michaels) and just cut them off the stems. Soooooo cheap!

I really like pomanders too. If my sister was going to be younger, we would have done something that involved less work for her (no throwing, just walking).

Any ideas for how one could carry the rings?

The actual rings?

My oldest younger sister is going to be our honorary "ring bearer." I'm not sure if I'm going to make something for her to carry them in (like a little satin bag to wrap around her wrist) or if she will just keep them looped around her finger.

I know I wouldn't trust a small child with the real rings. Too many things could happen. Fake rings are cheap and easy to attach to a pillow, in a bouquet, or whatever other way you decide.

My friend had a wedding recently with two of the youngest flowergirls (there were 4 total) carried a wide ribbon with a bell tied to each end. Then the girls rang the bells as they walked down the aisle. It was super cute.

First: silk leaves of most varieties peel off their plastic stems quite easily, nicer finished product that the plastic still stuck to the back if you cut them off Smiley

Second: Traditional ring pillows always have a ribbon at the center, that is to tie the rings (or fake rings) to the pillow Smiley
I think a six year old could safely handle the rings up the aisle & during the ceremony, especially if they were tied.

 I would not give the pillow/ box/ basket/ pomander to either child untill ten seconds before they are to walk down the aisle.

I've seen a very well behaved but bored eight year old pluck all the petals off 2/3 of the flowers in her boquet because it was the only thing in her hands and she was behaving by not running around beforehand and messing up her dress or hair.

I did a cute basket with silk flowers and put silk butterflies in mine..
I know at micheal's they have the foam pumpkins.. you could cut up a pumpkin and turn it into a basket..  or perhaps  use a cornicopia as a flower holder..or attach ribbon so that they could carry it.  (perhap if you use silk flowers you could find a little bird, or some thanksgiving type ornaments inside the basket..)  Perhaps have one girl carry a wooden indian couple and another girl carry a pilgrim couple..  (that would be cute as cake toppers) .. heh.. 
perhaps just having them carry little bibles with there names on them like the pilgrims .. with some flowers tied on top with a pretty bow.

Maybe one of those halloween pumpkin baskets minus the scary face on them, and instead of petals, leaves in them?  The possibilities are endless.  You can even have them carry plain baskets with petals in the fall colours (orange, brown..)
