Flower Girl

The tradition of a flower girl began in Ancient Rome, where the flower girl serviced the bride and groom by carrying wheat and herbs. This was to bless them with prosperity and fertility.  Throughout Western Europe, the only people who attended the bride were those of youth. So all of the attendents in the wedding party were children.The most notable of flower girl visions is the Victorian flower girl, a young, little girl in a white dress carring a basket full of rose petales.
