Weddings that showcase a couples’ style are always the best. The non-traditional nods to the bride or groom’s personality are what guests remember and talk about. When couples do “them” the event becomes more intimate and personal. Recently, a couple decided to have a flower man… and it was perfect!
How does a flower man happen? The back story is that the bride and her cousin were flower girl and ring bearer together as children. She wanted to include him in her wedding, and he really wanted to re-create their childhood memory. So, instead of cute kids tossing flowers ahead of the bride, in this wedding a 28 year old flower man did the honor.
Guests were amused, and what bride could be stressed or worried after laughing at a gentleman using the same flower basket she used as a flower girl years ago?! Hats off to this creative spin on the flower girl. We like it almost as much as grandma flower girls! To any bride reading this, don’t worry so much about what others will think. Plan the wedding that matches your relationship… you’ll thank yourself later!
