The cutest flower girls and ring bearers ever

Spring is in the air and with the season comes weddings. Few things are cuter than the smallest members of the wedding party — the flower girls and ring bearers. We gathered pictures of some kiddos doing their wedding thing, along with stories of mishaps that made the day even more memorable. When you’re little and cute, you don’t have to be perfect!

Kathleen and her husband decided to have a group of young attendants for their outdoor wedding. “We chose not to have any bridesmaids or groomsmen, but very much wanted to include our (adorable, amazing) nieces and nephews. We asked our five little ones — ages 2 to 4 — to be our ‘yay parade.’ They walked down the aisle before us, and had a spectacular spill down the small hill in our aisle. They all popped up, clapped and finished their parade duties — and led a good bit of the cheering and ‘yay!’-ing during the ceremony itself.” Kathleen’s wedding photographer Stacey Bode managed to catch the "yay parade" in action.
