Talk About It
It's important that the flower girl realizes that she is indeed an important part of the wedding and that she knows her duties. Talk to her about the tradition of the flower girl, what she will be doing and what will occur during the wedding, so she does not feel uninformed.

Make sure the flower girl goes to bed early. Your girl getting enough sleep could mean the difference between her waltzing down the aisle like a princess or her hunching down the aisle like Frankenstein. Ideally, children aged 7-12 should be getting around 10 hours of sleep a night to ensure that they are well rested.
Also, making sure she is eating healthy is crucial. Make sure she is eating a balanced meal the night before and eating healthy throughout the day of the wedding. Foods that are high in fat can make her drowsy and less attentive to what is going on around her. A balance of protein and carbohydrates will make sure she has energy for the day, along with fresh fruits and veggies.
After a long day of having to stand around, walking from here to there, temporarily going blind from camera flashes and being the victim to some harsh cheek-pinching, your flower girl will need a well-deserved break! Perhaps treat her to a scoop of ice cream, her favorite candy bar or just let her know that she did an awesome job. Don't let her amazing performance go unnoticed!
With these tips, your flower girl will undoubtedly do well on the big day. Are there any tips I missed? Let me know in the comments below!
