One of the things we love most about photographing kids is that they love anything creative and fun. We get the freedom to push the limits with hair, wardrobe and styling and they love every minute of it. When Monbebe Couture asked us to do a flower girl inspired shoot, we knew that we wanted to push the limits and “re-imagine” the flower girl. We know that it’s technically the bride’s big day, but what better way to build up the anticipation for the bride than with an adorably fly flower girl walking down the aisle? We’ve pulled together some of our favorite ideas to incorporate for your flower girl on your wedding day.
Get creative with props
Mix it up! Think outside the traditional flower girl basket and try unique props such as confetti, flower adorned balloons, or even floral rings. The sky is the limit and here (bonus – it’s one less thing for the flower girl to have to remember to do!)
Add flair to the hair
Kids love fun/cool hairstyles so don’t be afraid to add beautiful florals to hair (and even skin) in a creative way. You can add floral stems to hair for a floral puff or bun or even have your makeup artist use a little eyelash adhesive to attach flowers or jewels to skin. The options here are limitless!
Incorporate fun shades
We all love a good photo op and it should be no different for the flower girl. Instead of those silly photo booth props, try creating some glammed up couture sunglasses using florals or jewels to kick it up a notch.
If you decide to ditch the flower basket all together, props such as beautiful crowns are an inexpensive alternative. Remind the flower girl that she is queen in the making.
We hope that these ideas inspire you to get creative while planning out your flower girl look and allow your little cutie to shine with you on your big day!
