Mom Stalks About-to-Wed Couples At Registry So Her Daughter Can Be A Flowergirl?

Posted in: , ,

4-year-old Annabelle Earl had heard about the joys of being a flowergirl from her baby-sitter's daughter and wanted to be one too so her mother came up with a plan to make her one though they didn't have anyone in their circle close to being married.

The mother is obviously the type to go to any lengths to get her daughter's wishes granted, and her plan was that they go to the marriage registry in New York, where ouples get married for $25, and Annabelle would advertise her services.

However, when they showed up, nobody wanted Annabelle and her mother began to ask directly.

I don't know how I feel about this, it sounds romantic, but I imagine being forced or shamed by this mom to have a strange little girl as part of a private ceremony like a wedding.

According to NBC, the mother decided to become aggressive after people paid them little attention.

"We stood there and she held up her sign and people walked past and would smile but no one came up to her. I said, 'I think we're going to have to ask people.'"

Annabelle, who wore a rose-print dress and white lace gloves, and held the rose flowers her mother had bought for the occasion, surveyed the couples, chose one and approached with the proposal.

"The woman said, 'No thank you,' and I thought, 'Goodness, this is going to be a long day,'" Earl said.

Finally, they found a couple who were OK to allow the little girl do the job.

"She was too adorable to say no to, and we thought it would be fun to make her day as well as ours," said the bride, who did not want to be identified.

What do you think of this mother? Loving or spoiling the child? Why can't she tell the daughter to hold until the time when or if she is chosen by any of their friends or family?

Have you or any bride you know ever had a mother cajole them to put their daughters in the bridal train?

  1. Awww...that's so touching. Besides it's a way of granting her daughter's wish. So glad that couple agreed, the little girl is so cute.
