When my parents got married, my mom had her best friend’s daughter, Christy, as a flower girl. Christy danced at the front of the sanctuary while my parents said their vows.
Christy just got married and asked my girls (her mom’s best childhood-friend’s grandchildren… too much to follow?) to be her flower girls. And yes, they did (despite the evil eye I kept trained in their direction) twirl at the front of the sanctuary during the ceremony. And they played peek-a-boo around her pouffy wedding dress. And they waved at me. I was pretty much a nervous wreck, but they really enjoyed the day.
