Are you have little members of the bridal party at your wedding? If so, this post is for you! Pinterest is overflowing with endless options for those little's when it comes to what they wear, what they carry, and more. But how do those photos translate when it comes to your wedding? We're here to help! Especially since this is another way to really bring out your personality on your wedding day.
Let's start with who you have leading you down the aisle. Is it your niece or nephew? Your finances relative? Thinking about their relationship to you can spark some ideas as you go through these next few categories.
What are your wedding day colors? What color are the bridesmaids and groomsmen wearing? You could go opposite of the bridesmaid dresses for the flower girl, and a colorful shirt for the ring bearer that matches the grooms tie. You could also coordinate instead of fully match the colors. Think taupe with blush or dusty blue with grey. Take a look at your wedding colors and decor as a whole and pick what coordinates the best.
Puffy skirts and suspenders are adorable, but think about how it fits with the rest of your wedding. If you are having a barefoot wedding on the beach, you may want something light like a simple lace dress. There are so many beautiful options for flower girl dresses, even some that match the bride! For the little guys, should there wear a suit, a dress shirt with no jacket, maybe a bow tie? Consider what style the groomsmen are wearing.
What They Carry
The trend of ring bearers carrying signs is very popular right now, and there are many options. "Uncle John, here comes your bride" and similar tones. These are great ideas if you don't want them to carry a pillow or ring box. I also love the "ring security" idea. For the little gals, what style flowers should they carry? Will you go outside of the box and not give them flowers at all? Maybe a wand or ribbons? Think about all the options and go with what matches your wedding day!
Oh the accessories! My favorite topic for this post. What items would complete the look to match your wedding theme? Should the ring bearer wear a bowtie, or newsboy cap? Should your flower girl wear a flower crown or even a big bow in her hair? There are a few adorable ideas for this, decide what works best and it will all come together!
Do you have any ideas for how to coordinate the children in the wedding with the rest of the bridal party?
