Having your flower girls toss petals down the aisle is cute and classic, but it's not the only option for your littlest attendants. Props like giant balloons, bedazzled wands and colorful pinwheels are great alternatives if you want to put a twist on tradition or your venue doesn't allow dropping petals (some don't so ask ahead!). Steal one of these ideas and your flower girls won't just look adorable — they'll have fun walking down the aisle too!
