Tuesday Tips–Ring Bearer Basics

Little boys in velvet shorts are pretty much a thing of the past. In fact, we’ve seen girls as the ring bearers — and even dogs! After you’ve decided together as a couple whether or not to even HAVE a ring bearer, the next decision is WHO. After that, what will you have them wear?

Here are some tips as you navigate the options:

THE SKINNY: It’s the same deal as asking the flower girls. When you ask his parents if he can be in the party, you’re also working from the assumption that they’ll pay for the outfit, so bring that up in the beginning.

THE FORMALITY: Look for a tiny tux if you’re having a black tie affair. If your style is more casual, there are tons of cute options for these little guys — a lightweight cotton or linen suit, short-tails in a matching hue or a sailor suit would all work well. Pair a suit with some Converse shoes and cool shades like this cutie!

THE STYLE: Unless he’s wearing a full-on suit or tux, the ring bearer needn’t match the groom or groomsmen perfectly. Give him a bit more color and flair than you would his older counterparts. Or just give him a tie in the wedding colors and some signs to make everyone laugh.

THE ACCESSORIES: The most important accessory for this party member is the ring pillow, so choose one that complements your theme without clashing with the ring bearer’s outfit.

Like some flower girls, the ring bearers might just be the comic relief from all the wedding seriousness. If they “chicken out” or run wildly instead of walk down the aisle, don’t let it ruin the day. Children can sometimes be unpredictable. Go with the flow and hope for the best. They’ll still be adorable and the parents will be honored you asked!

Thursday Trends – Catering to Kids

Perfect Day Wedding Planners outdoor games for receptionOne of the trends we’re seeing these days is weddings which cater to kids. If you can afford feeding the extra people, it may allow more of your friends to attend without the hassle of trying to find a babysitter. There are many creative and fun ways this can be done. Here are a few ideas:

  • Consider having children seated together at a special table with a favorite aunt or uncle.
  • Have a special favor just for the kids to keep them busy like a coloring book & crayons, watercolors, Play-Doh, etc.
  • Maybe rent a special room next door to the reception hall and have kid-friendly entertainment — a juggler, magician or balloon sculptor.
  • Get some dress up clothes and props from a thrift store and have a “photo booth” area just for them.
  • Provide a kid-sized buffet table. Have it stocked with small pizza slices, mini-hamburgers, chicken nuggets, or a sundae bar.
  • Hire an older babysitter and have them plan organized activities and games. Have a space with comfy pillows and a large TV playing cartoons.
  • Pick a few songs for the reception that kids will like — the Hokey Pokey, Chicken Dance, or Twist & Shout. Maybe have a special song where every adult has to choose a kid to dance with.

What are some ideas you have for keeping kids busy at a wedding?
