Planning a wedding is stressful enough but it gets even more time consuming when you add out-of-town bridal party.
Good news! It doesn’t have to be as stressful as it sounds. Making sure your out-of-town flower girls have their flower girl dresses and accessories is easy as pie (or wedding cake) if you plan accordingly.
At Bocelli Boutique, we often hear from frantic brides and stressed-out moms that they aren’t quite sure how to get an out-of-town flower girl ready for the main event. That’s why, we’ve created this helpful outline for you – hey, any little time-saving tips help when planning a wedding, right?
Read on to learn how to plan your out-of-town flower girl dresses and ring bearer outfit.
The Internet is full of wonderful options and you can select and order a gown in minutes. Once you do, send a link to the flower girl and her parents to see if it’s a suitable option, financially, and then size wise.
2. Include The Child
Make the experience fun for all by including the flower girl in the dress selection process. If you order online, send her links to your favorite flower girl dresses and allow her to offer an opinion. Ask her to send links of dresses she likes. Then, settle on a decision that will match your wedding but will excite her as well.
3. Make A Checklist
Nobody will care about your wedding as much as you do, so make a checklist for the flower girl, her parents, and yourself! The checklist will include everything you/they have to bring the day of the wedding. This includes, but is not limited to:
Lipgloss/Makeup if old enough to wear
A bag of snacks – you don’t want any HANGRY flower girls and ring bearers!
And other activities to keep the kiddies busy and happy.
4. Have a Backup
It wouldn’t hurt to have an extra flower basket or pillow for the rings. Ensure a smooth wedding day by packing extras of anything you think may get lost in the shuffle and bustle on the special (and busy!) day.
5. Give a Gift Of Appreciation
Your flower girl may not have planned your bridal shower, but she will still appreciate a small token of your appreciation. You don’t have to shell out for a huge gift, but a card and a bracelet (or another flower girl accessory) will go a long way with your sweet out-of-town flower girl.
A wedding is a beautiful moment between two people, but it’s the supporting cast of characters that celebrate with you that make the day truly special. And that includes your beautiful, out-of-town flower girl!
