Back in 2017, we were one of the first to talk about couples having grandmothers act as their flowergirls! It was the cutest fucking thing. Since then, the idea has been used many times and gotten a lot of mainstream attention. We’ve even seen a wedding with a grandma flower girl who had a cash cannon — she “made it rain” as she rolled down the aisle in her wheelchair! If you’re thinking of having a grandma flower girl, we’re here with some suggestions to make her feel like the most fabulous flower girl of ALL TIME.
