The little Flower Girl smiled brightly, looking like a fairy tale princess, dressed in soft pink flounces and patent leather slippers. Her blond curls cascaded down her back laced with pink ribbons and tiny rosebuds. She reminded me of an exquisite French doll I cherished as a child which brought soft, happy memories. As her Mom pinned a delicate corsage on the front of her dress, she instructed her not to play with it. The wedding procession began with romantic classic music. The Groom's party and I walked smiling down the aisle and up the stairs to the flower filled platform. One by one the Bridesmaids gracefully walked the aisle, followed by the lovely Maid of Honor. The Flower Girl began her walk, carefully shedding rose petals. She stopped, frowned, and tugged at her corsage, then let out a piercing screech. Her Mom ran to her and lovingly picked up the crying child who showed her the bright blood on her index finger. The corsage pin had come loose. Since this wedding many years ago, I have carried large gold safety pins with me to safely pin corsages and boutonnieres on little ones. Safety tip one: ask your florist to provide safety pins in children's pin on flowers!
