Blooms for you and your littlest attendant
A big bouquet can easily overwhelm a flower girl. Instead of giving her blooms that match your 'maids, ask your florist to create a miniature or complimentary version of your posy to create cohesion.

ORCHARD LANE FLOWERS
Vibrant roses and garden roses work with brassica, scabiosa, astilbe and dahlias to give these bunches their rich jewel tones. Hanging amaranthus adds dimension to both arrangements; dusty miller, plumosus, sword fern, seeded eucalyptus and willow eucalyptus provide volume and balance.
Both arrangements feature a hydrangea base with garden roses, lisianthus, sweet pea and pointy astilbe, all in soft shades of ivory and pastel pink. Silver dollar eucalyptus and dusty miller give the bouquets a rustic, romantic vibe.
THE PAPER DAISY FLOWER BOUTIQUE
Rice flower adds volume in both arrangements, with pink and coral spray roses tying the two together. The bride's bouquet brings in peach garden roses and white ranunculus, plus some green hues from the dusty miller, salal and boxwood.
Blush garden roses, white ranunculus and ivory and peach spray roses give these bouquets their texture. Accents of dusty miller and seeded eucalyptus round out the arrangements, while blooms and greenery tied into the ribbon of the flower girl bouquet add interest.
