    FLOWER GIRL BASKETS AVAILABLE AT SOMETHING NEW AT DOLPHIN QUAY IN MANDURAH
    So you've found the perfect spot for your ceremony, you've got your junior attendants picked out and you plan to have them scatter petals as you walk down the aisle...then you find out that your venue doesn't allow anything to be scattered on their premises; now what do you do with the flower girl baskets?

     

    Fear not! We have some fun filling alternatives and other uses for your flower girl baskets.

     

    Many ceremony venues don't allow confetti or petals of any type to be scattered on their premises. It may be for environmental reasons or it may simply be because of the clean up afterwards. When asking your venue whether they allow confetti or petals, consider offering to have someone clean up afterwards, it may make all the difference.

     

    WHAT TO FILL YOUR FLOWER GIRL BASKETS WITH?
    Ÿ    fresh or freeze dried petals, silk or fabric petals, fresh or dried leaves or

          rice paper hearts

    Ÿ    tissues for those happy tears, order of service scrolls or hand fans

    Ÿ    wrapped candy / lollies, wedding inspired toy for junior attendants to keep,

          notes or advice cards


    FLOWER GIRL BASKETS & THE CEREMONY 

    Ÿ    as the bridal party walk down the aisle, have your junior attendants scatter

          fresh petals, silk petals, fabric petals or leaves

    Ÿ    a few minutes prior to the ceremony, have your junior attendants hand out

          mini tissue packs to guests. These could also be given out just to aisle

          side guests, so if you have two junior attendants one could do the left side

          of the aisle one could do the right, just be mindful of the timing

    Ÿ    a few minutes prior to the ceremony, have your junior attendants hand out

          order of service scrolls to guests

    Ÿ    a few minutes prior to or after the ceremony, have your junior attendants

          hand out wrapped candy / lollies to guests

    Ÿ    a few minutes prior to the ceremony, have your junior attendants hand out

          hand fans to guests. This is especially thoughtful on hot days or for 

          venues that are stuffy and not air-conditioned

    Ÿ    have your junior attendants carry a small wedding inspired toy that they

          get to keep after the wedding

    Ÿ    have your junior attendants carry a special note or funny photo from the

          bride to be delivered to the groom. This may help calm a nervous groom

          and is a sweet keepsake of your special day

     

    Your reception venue may be more forgiving and allow confetti and petals. So if you were not allowed to scatter anything at the ceremony, the reception is the perfect moment for your junior attendants to get involved and show off their scattering technique.

     

    FLOWER GIRL BASKETS & THE RECEPTION

    Ÿ    as you walk into the reception room have your junior attendants shower

          you with fresh petals, silk petals, fabric petals, leaves or confetti

    Ÿ    at the start of each speech have your junior attendants shower the

          speaker with a handful of petals, leaves or confetti

    Ÿ    at the start of the bridal dance have your junior attendants shower the

          bride and groom with handfuls of petals, leaves or confetti

    Ÿ    when all guests are seated, have your junior attendants hand out 'advice

          for the new Mr and Mrs' cards to each guest

     

    You can find your flower girl baskets and other wedding accessories at Something New. We can also theme them to match the colour scheme of your wedding day. Come in and ask us how. You can find Something New in the Mandurah Ocean Marina at Dolphin Quay.
