This 4-Year-Old Girl Went Around the City Clerk’s Office Asking Brides If She Could Be a Flower Girl

A different kind of proposal

A four-year-old Brooklyn girl wanted to be a flower girl so badly that she walked around the Manhattan City Clerk’s Office asking couples if she could participate in their weddings, NBC News reports.

Decked out in a floral dress and white gloves, Annabelle Earl carried a dozen pink and purple roses purchased at a bodega and held up a green poster that said “Can I Be Your Flower Girl.”

Finally, one bride said “yes.” When the moment finally came, the youngster was briefly overcome with stage fright, but got through the rest of the ceremony without a hitch. Afterwards, her mother Kim bought her “wedding cake” at a nearby bakery.

No word on whether the Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio will invite her to be a flower girl at the weddings he officiates.
