Flower Girl Wedding Music

The flower girl is one of the most unpredictable parts of the bridal party entrance, as anyone who's ever been to a wedding can attest to. At my wedding, we had two flower girls -- cousins who were 2 1/2 years old. In our case, they were relatively cooperative, but didn't *quite* get the idea of scattering rose petals in nice even distribution up the aisle. One little girl didn't do anything with her basket, while the other one just dumped the entire contents at the top of the aisle!

However, I know that when they're little, they're SO cute to watch. And the music they come down to can really enhance the precious sight of them traipsing up the aisle (ok, or being carried in mommy's arms). It's a good idea to make sure that your musicians can "loop" the music if necessary to allow for any glitches or delays in getting the flower girl to the front of the church. Here are some song titles that are quite sweet to accompany this part of the ceremony.

Song Title Music Style
Andante Grazioso Classical
Bourrée Classical
Minuet in G major (Bach/Petzold) Classical
Minuet in G major (Mozart) Classical
Music Box Contemporary
Petite Litanies de Jesus Classical
Somewhere Out There (An American Tail) 80s

Should flower girls and ring bearers have their own song?

Often the littlest wedding party members enter with the grown-up members and there is no change of music. But when do you think it's a good idea to give them their own entrance music? If so, is there another song title we should add to the list above?
