Unpopular opinion here - but I hate the concept of a ďlittle brideĒ. I thought it was weird and creepy when I had mine a million years ago, and Iím sad that this particular tradition continues.
Or maybe because Sister Mary Margaret picked me up and shook me for carrying a pretty leaf in my otherwise prayerful hands I now shudder at the whole thing.
Being confirmed was a huge thing here, when I was that age.
We girls were competing with each other about who had the best dress.
It was far more important than the ceremony in church.
