34 of the Cutest Flower Girl Baskets from Real Weddings
A lot goes into outfitting your entire bridal party (getting bridesmaids to agree on a uniform look is difficult enough!). Dressing your flower girl tends to be easier—especially since there's a traditional formula to follow. When you envision a flower girl's attire, you likely picture a white dress and wicker basket. Though this ensemble is tried-and-true, it isn't her only option. Nontraditional outfits, like colorful dresses and tutus, are just as prevalent these days. While a unique garment is the key element to her unexpected aisle debut, you can also switch up her look by upgrading her favorite accessory: her basket.
Because these vessels come in so many different shapes and sizes, we urge you to think outside the box. Here, you'll find adorable takes on this classic flower girl addition. The best part? There's a flower girl basket alternative out there for virtually every ceremony type. For a classic service, a light, woven option with garden roses will do the trick. Planning on throwing a contemporary big day? We're loving these modern metal hangings with greenery and vibrant blooms put together by Amaryllis Floral & Event Design. For rustic weddings, a distressed basket would look right at home.
If you're interested in accessorizing your flower girl's look with a basket that is as cute as she is, just look to the following ideas. The main takeaway is that you should feel free to get creative with your choice. Whether it is a dainty metal holder or something entirely unexpected—be sure to bookmark the swan-shaped bowl ahead!—there is something in here for any couple's wedding day.
