Flower Girl Fun: Alternative Ideas to Say ‘Goodbye’ to the Basket!

Flowergirl wand for alternative basket idea

Being a flower girl can be quite a thrill for your favorite little lady. But it could also be pretty overwhelming having to walk down that aisle all alone! Make it fun with something for her to carry along that’s a lot more whimsical and playful than the traditional basket of flowers. We’re sharing 10 fabulous ideas that can suit your chosen wedding theme, season, or venue—plus will have your darling flower girl all smiles for her moment in the spotlight!

Floral Choices with an Elegant Spin

To keep within the flowery look, you could opt for wedding wands made of flowers and trailing ribbons. Having the stick to hold makes it easier for little hands. Plus what fun to have something to wave around as she walks!

You could also consider sweet little pomanders or ‘kissing balls,’ floral garlands, or even a single giant paper flower as tall as your flower girl!

Whimsical Ideas with Non-Florals

For non-floral options, we love the ideas we found! Why not clusters of seashells in place of a flower wand? Or a petite wreath for a rustic wedding, a ladylike parasol on a sunny day, giant balloons, or a banner with a sweet message?

Alternative flower girl basket ideas that are fun using ribbons, wands, garlands, balloons, and wreaths

And if you really want to get those flower girl smiles and giggles, you can’t go wrong if you prepare lollipops or balloons for her to hold, or even bubbles for her to play with!
