How To Ask Your Flower Girl + DIY Gift Basket
You’ve said yes to the ring. Your besties have said yes to being your bridesmaids. Now it’s time to get that final yes – your flower girl!
Being a flower girl is a special role for many little girls. Whether she is your niece, your little sister, or even your best friend’s daughter, asking her to be your flower girl is a big deal. Keep reading to find tips on how to ask her and to see a fun DIY floral themed gift basket you can give her!
How to Ask
Before you ask her to be your flower girl, you need to get her parents’ permission. They have to be okay with it first. Once they agree, make sure they are still around when you ask her. She’ll be more comfortable with them around and she will know that she has their permission.
When you ask, make sure she understands what it means to be a flower girl. You don’t want her saying yes to something she doesn’t understand. Explain how you’re about to get married and you need someone to walk down the aisle before you and that you want her to help.
Once she’s said yes, you can thank her with this super cute DIY gift basket! She’s sure to love it, and she’ll feel special and prepared for the big day!
What You Need
- A wicker basket
- Basket grass/paper confetti
- Gifts to fill the basket
- Flowers (Real or Fake)
- A Card
Step 1: The Basket
The first thing you need is the perfect wicker basket. You want one that is big enough to fit everything, but isn’t so big that she can’t carry one. Once you’ve found the perfect basket, make sure to fill it with basket grass or paper confetti so all her gifts can be on full display for her!
DIY Tip: Find a wicker basket with a long handle so she can use it as her flower basket when she walks down the aisle!
Step 2: Add the Bigger Items
Now it’s time to find a few cute, bigger gifts to add to her flower girl gift basket. While there are many gifts out there, one gift you can’t go wrong with is a stuffed toy! Whether it’s a dog, bear, cat, or any other animal, she’ll love it instantly. We recommend including this adorable Cat Plush. With its flowery tutu, it’s the perfect first addition to this floral themed basket. She’s sure to love this soft and cuddly toy!
You might also want to include items that are not only cute, but practical. This wedding kit sticks with the fun floral theme, but also includes items she might want to use, and it will help her feel part of your big day. It will also be helpful for mom when she’s helping her little lady get ready too.
(If she’s too young to handle scissors or a sewing kit, feel free to take them out and use them yourself!)
Step 3: Add the Smaller Gifts
Once you have some bigger gifts, fill in some of the empty spaces in your basket with smaller gifts. Consider getting her favorite candy from the store and storing it in a cute favor box. This floral box fits the theme, holds a good bit of candy, and it even has a beautiful gold foil butterfly on top!
To go along with the golden butterfly, add this butterfly soap that is packaged beautifully (and smells amazing, too!).
Want to add a personal touch to the basket? Include a personalized gift that will make her feel special! This compact, for example, will make her feel like one of the big girls on your wedding day. Adding a personal touch will give her something to cherish for years to come.
Step 4: Add the Card
With every gift comes a card. Tell her why you want her to be your flower girl and how much it would mean to you for her to say yes. Need a cute card? We’ve designed a printable card just for you!
