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!

Tuesday Tips–Flower Girl Frocks

Perfect Day Wedding Planners flower girlYou’ve gone back and forth about who to have as your flower girls. Do you ask your pre-teen nieces? Or the little girls you were a nanny for over the last year? It sure would be easier with the older ones. But the littles are so cute! Ahhhhh…maybe you can just have them all. Or none. Again, so many big and little decisions for a wedding!

Most girls look for any excuse to dress like a princess, so being a flower girl can be a dream come true. Here’s a few tips for their ensemble:

The Skinny: Her parents traditionally pay for the flower girl’s attire, so unless you’re planning on making a gift of it, be up-front about this when you ask their permission to include her in your wedding.

The Fancy: There are differing opinions about whether the flower girl should dress like the bride or the bridesmaids. How about a combination of both by adding a sash to their dress in the colors of the wedding? Perfect Day Wedding Planners flower girl dress tangerine

The Style: No matter how racy your maids might be, flower girl dresses are nearly always high-necked and tea- or floor-length.

The Hair and Accessories: Keep it simple. A basket of petals or a pomander is probably plenty for her to handle. Consider the age and maturity level. What is she really going to be able to wear or carry? If you know that floral crown is going to be off your two year old niece’s head within minutes, you may want to reconsider it. A cute bow or braiding is probably best for this age.

No matter what, they’re gonna be cute and put a smile on everyone’s face. After the ceremony they may kick off their shoes, undo their braids and flick off their bows–but it’s okay. Their responsibilities are done and they deserve to have a little fun like everyone else.
