What are some funny/sweet/cute songs for the flower girl?
If you decide to have separate music for the flower girl, and perhaps the ring bearer, to walk down the aisle to, it can give you a chance to really express your personality. Most of the wedding ceremony is serious and deeply meaningful, but it is hard to keep a straight face at the sight of an adorable flower girl walking down the aisle.
Many brides choose to highlight this moment with a whimsical song that is familiar to the child. This sets the tone for the momentary change in mood, and can actually ease a child’s distress if they panic during their entrance. Some of the popular selections include:
- When you wish Upon a Star
- Somewhere Over the Rainbow
- What a Wonderful World
- Any Disney love song
Depending upon the source of your wedding music this can be a little complicated, and you should trust your source if they say it will not work smoothly. If you have live musicians, it is much easier to accommodate a change in music, as it is needed. A DJ may have difficulty changing form one CD track to another and back again in time for bride to make her entrance. As cute as it may sound, it may not be practical at the moment.
Talk to your DJ or music team to see if it will work, and then have fun with it. They may have suggestions for songs they have used before. You may have a favorite song that fits the moment, too. Remember it is your day, and the music you select will showcase your special style and personality.
If you really want a special children’s song, and the music provider cannot work it into the ceremony, consider a short dance with the flower girl and ring bearer and the wedding party during the reception. Have an open mind and enjoy your day.
