Often responsible for adding some comic relief to an otherwise serious event, the cutest little members of a wedding party deserve to look good. If your son or daughter has the big-time responsibility of being a flower girl or ring bearer this Spring or Summer, check out these sweet outfit options for every type of event! Whether they'll be barefoot on the beach or on their best behavior in a house of worship, there's a pint-size solution for every style of wedding.
The white satin pouf pillow we so often see at the altar has never been my style. So I'm thrilled to see brides taking the tradition in a different direction. From books to seashells to bird's nests, there are plenty of memorable and chic alternatives to the standard ring bearer pillows. Better yet, many can serve as décor in your home for years after the big day. Here are a few of my favorites.
While I can appreciate adult only weddings, I do get a kick out of a sweet flower girl tossing petals and a dapper ring bearer scooting down the aisle. If the engaged couple wants to include tots in their nuptial festivities, there are a few things they can do to keep the babes blissful and enjoying the blessed event.
Try these tips to keep kiddos content:
- Instead of setting the kiddie table with pristine linens, cover the top with butcher paper and place cups full of crayons on the table. The tots can doodle away whilst the adults toast to the newlyweds.
- Bring bottles of bubbles so youngsters can blow spheres till their hearts content.
- If it's an outdoor wedding, set out a bucket of chalk so the mini artists can create a work of art or hopscotch game on the sidewalks.
