Precious Flower Girl Sees Dad While Going Down The Isle, Stops To Say Hi
A wedding wouldn't be complete without cute little flower girls. These girls are usually members of the bride and groom's extended families or children of their friends and are usually between seven and ten years of age. Their duty is to walk in front of the bride and scatter flower petals on the floor, although this tradition can vary.
These cutie pies have a symbolic role in the wedding as well, as they are said to lead the bride from innocence to womanhood and her new role as a spouse. That's why they even wear similar dresses as the bride. As a guest at a wedding, you wouldn’t want to outshine the bride, but one tiny little guest sure has made an entrance no one will forget – the bride included!
This little flower girl knows how to make quite an entrance! Watch as she walks down the isle with a happy smile on her face, but as she strolls down the carpet she notices a familiar face and stops by to say 'Hi' to her father! Cuteness overload!
Flower girls have been present at wedding processions centuries ago. Back when marriages were arranged by the parents of the couple for procreation purposes, flower girls were carrying sheaves of wheat and bouquets of herbs, to symbolize fertility. During the Renaissance, flower girls would carry strands of garlic, because it was believed to repel evil spirits.
The symbolism of a flower girl is leading the bride forward, from childhood innocence to her adult roles as wife and mother. Today, they may still be tossing flower petals down the aisle, but more often they can be seen carrying wrapped candies, confetti of just a bouquet instead.
But more often than not, flower girls and kids at weddings in general, don't go according to the script (duh, they're just kids and they want to have fun), which results in hilarious wedding moments that quickly become viral on the internet. Because hey, who can resist a good chuckle?
This particular flower girl pretty much goes according to plan, but then she sees her dad filming her. And of course, she decides that it would only be polite to stop and say hi. She does exactly that, and you can hear the guests laughing at this preciously sweet moment. How adorable is that? We sure had our daily dose of belly laugh.
