Look how happy everyone around him is! I love it! Reply While mine is female she is actually 21. We all like to joke how our wedding is gonna have a flower girl that is legal. Reply NOT male flower girl . . . Male flower GUY! Reply Flower Guys add an entertaining twist to the conditioned same old same old. Especially with a guy that looks to be as much fun as the lovable character in the colorful photo. Reply You've certainly got me intrigued! Reply all the pictures from this wedding are AMAZING! it looks like the most fun wedding ever. kudos to the groom on the great puppets. Reply I love this! We're having a 29 year old woman be our flower gal. It's awesome to see variations on the tradition! Those puppets are BANANAS (in a good way). Reply My 26 year old brother is so about to be asked to be my flowerguy (he was always going to be a bridesboy, this is even better!). Reply My fiance was the flower girl at our friends wedding. It really happened because they realized at the last minute that they had rose petals to put down the aisle but no way to get them their. So he shoved them into his pockets and the rest is very very funny history! Reply Glad to see you back Ariel. Reply […] start, we had a 29 year old male flower girl. My wedding party walked down the aisle to Raider's of the Lost Ark and we walked out to the […] Reply My mom has a running joke with my teenage cousin – she's going to be the flower girl at his wedding. My dad was kind of a flower girl when he had to carry my terrified 4 year old self down a church aisle many years ago! He didn't have as much fun as this guy did, though! Reply It helps if the guy is hot like this one. 🙂 What a fun idea! Reply Emma, I think more than the hotness it's the playfulness. This wouldn't work with a sulky emo 15-year-old hiding behind his bottle-black bangs. …or actually, that would be fucking hilarious. I TAKE IT BACK! Bring on the emo flower boys at goth weddings! Reply This completely fucking RULES! I love how fun this is. Now I wish I had a flower-dude at my wedding. Reply That flower girl is me! I loved the opportunity to be a part of my friends' wedding in such an unconventional way. I'd do it again in a heartbeat! T Reply My last comment was incomplete and unconventional… Bobby and Claire are such fun, open minded people. Their wedding was perfect representation of that and it proved memorable not just to the wedding party but also the guests and everyone involved. Having been a flower girl is a nice thing to have on a resume. Dana Reply Yay, Dana! After perusing Dana-the-flower-girl's website, I'm pleased to announce that he's single! Reply How long before he gets snapped up? Reply How freaking cute! LOL I would bid on him anyday… Reply this picture makes me smile! looks like a fun loving kinda guy! Reply props to the photographer! Reply Wow! Hot, playful, fun loving… I want a piece of that guy myself! (I sort of know him… I'll tell him about all of your generous compliments) BTW – the photographer was amazing. (I mean, so I hear.) Reply Ha! This comment string is hilarious. Dana, if I wasn't taken myself, you'd be in trouble. I LOVE the idea and love the shots, too. I also agree; great moment between the photographer and the participant in order to capture the energy and happiness of that moment. Fantastic all around. Reply I'm trying to get my fiance friend to fly in from Germany for our wedding (as a surprise wedding gift for my FI). If he comes, he is SO the perfect flower guy. It's so on!!! Reply Totally impressed – the lightheartedness of it, the joy of everyone around him, his huge grin – awesome!! Apparently he's a Bostonian, I wonder if he'd come be the flower boy at my wedding…. Reply He also makes a really great wedding guest. Reply Ha! Thanks Meredith! I'm trying to remember what I was up to in this picture. It looks like my dessert is already gone; so it must have had something to do with getting more dessert. Reply […] · No comments Last week I introduced you to Dana Jay Bein, the wedding industry's premier male flower girl. Dana seemed to be such a hit with y'all, that I decided it was time for a gritty 1-on-1 […] Reply When our neice got married she had our daughter,who was 14,at the time,as her "toddler" flowergirl! She had the daughter wear a sleeveles,white,poofy,midthigh length,toddler style dress with a headwreath with ribbons down the back,lace anklets and white 'mary jane' shoes and white gloves.I did a size 8 pampers cruiser diaper on her with a pair of white rubber pants with ruffles across the back and a sleeveless under shirt as her "toddler" underwear under the dress.The dress was short enough,so that just the very bottom of the pampers and ruffled rubberpants stuck out from under it!The daughter actually wanted to wear the outfit and be cute and like a "toddler flowergirl".Every one at the wedding thought she looked very cute and toddler like! before the reception,she went to the church nursery and took a pacifier from it and put it in her mouth and sucked on it most of the time during the reception and dance.The ringbearer was 12 years old and in his tux and the daughter looked very cute standing next to him for the pictures. Reply To christa-I would have loved to see your daughter in her flowergirl outfit! I have been to several weddings over the years where there were older flowergirls in the 13 to 16 year old range and all of them were dressed up cute like little girls and most of them had cloth diapers and rubberpants on under their poofy dresses.A couple of girls i saw had just the rubberpants on with ruffles across the back and they were 15.I have also seen the 8th grade catholic girls in their required white,poofy,confirmation dresses and veils with the lace anklets and white shoes with cloth diapers and rubberpants under their dresses that their parents required them to wear.
