There's no better way to start a ceremony than by sending an adorable flower girl down the aisle. You can expect at least a couple of guests to start in on the happy tears right there! These tiny attendants are not only sweet, they help cue all your attendees in to the fact that the big moment (the bride's entrance) is right around the corner. Plus, adding a few extra flowers, or faux flowers as the case may be, to your aisle will only serve to make the setting that much prettier. And, whether they make it all the way down the aisle or veer off to find the nearest parent first, there's no doubt flower girls are one of the cutest ceremony traditions around.

While flower girls, who can be a daughter, niece, goddaughter, or even the child of a friend, typically fall between the ages of three and seven, these pint-sized attendants don't need much extra help to deliver a dose of charm on the big day. A cute dress, a basket, maybe even a flower crown and they're ready for their moment! But the little ladies here took cute to the next level with outfits and accessories that made their appearance one more wedding moment to remember. Click through for all the sweet details.

Two flower girls were a cute addition to this couple's family-only bridal party. Their blush ruffled dresses and free-flowing flower crowns were paired with small wicker baskets to complete their aisle-ready looks.
