Wedding trend: Grandmas that are flowergirls
Flowergirls are such a sweet part of a wedding with their pretty dresses and baskets of petals – but who says it’s cherubic little girls who get to have all the fun?

So far, it seems to be taking off in America, but could this amazing trend hit the UK soon? We'd love to see more senior bridal party members getting involved in the big-day magic.
