Carien didn’t have bridesmaids on her wedding day, but instead opted to have two flower girls. As Phil is the eldest of 19 cousins in a very tight knit family, they decided to involve the two youngest cousins, one of whom came all the way over from London with her family for the wedding.
One of the girls’ mums made the flower girl dresses. The dresses were inspired by a 30 year old picture of Carien’s sister as a flower girl. Carien didn’t want puffy flower girl dresses, so they were long and flowing in style.
The dresses were a rich emerald color, with a deep blue sash which was tied in a large bow. The girls also wore silver sandals and had blue flowers in their hair, and they looked absolutely adorable.
