A little flower girl waits in the wings for her turn on the runway at a local bridal fashion show. A grainy texture has been added to the picture.
Throughout the changing eras of fashion and even roles of the members of the traditional wedding party, the vision of the flower girl has remained even more consistent to humankind than that of the bride herself.
When brides were very young and stepping themselves from childhood to womanhood through the wedding ceremony, the flower girl leads her forward as a symbol innocence "blooming" to become a wife and mother. In classical Roman and Greek times, the flower girl would scatter select herbs and grains to beckon fertility in a new union. Sheaths of wheat were carried in the wedding procession by medieval European flower girls. In modern times, our appreciation for the flower girl grows from pure sentiment: the love of beauty, innocence, and whimsy.
