Looking for a unique way to send your littlest attendants down the aisle in style?

Rustic Hot Pink Barn Wedding in Texas

Posted by Caitlin on Sep 11, 2013

Kari & Kevin

May 4

Georgetown, Texas  


Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I was looking for a rustic but elegant look and thought Gabriel Springs was perfect for this.  I also loved the openness of the venue, and how all guests would be in one room. 

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Beautiful florals 

2. Vintage lace wedding gown 

3. Bridesmaids’ Kendra Scott earrings that really made my color scheme pop! 

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about. 

The one moment I can’t stop thinking about is walking down the aisle to the man of my dreams and seeing the look in his face.  It made everything feel so right.

Posted by Caitlin on Jan 31, 2013

Even though having a flower girl or ring bearer is optional, including one of your favorite little ones is always a nice way to make them feel a part of your special day. Traditionally, their main job was to make it down the aisle, scatter floral petals or carry the rings on a pillow, but nowadays, brides are thinking beyond the petals and the pillows and letting them make their own grand entrance. Depending on your theme, here are seven alternative items your flower girl or ring bearer could carry (or walk) down the aisle with:

1. Bird’s Nest 

Perfect for any garden wedding, have you flower girl carry the rings in an artificial bird’s nest.

Talley Sue Hohlfeld, Etiquette Expert, has a great post on The Bride’s Guide today about flower girls. I have always loved the idea of having children involved with the wedding. They seem to add an air of innocence to the day. However, for many brides, the flower girls can also be a source of anxiety! Will she make it down the aisle? Will she drop the petals?

Well, a new book, One Little Flower Girl by Jennifer Dussling, could be the perfect gift (and instruction manual) for your flower girl!
