Wedding Wednesday – Gifts for Flower Girls & Ring Bearer

Last week I shared the gifts we gave to our loving parents. This week I wanted to share the gifts we gave to other special people in the wedding – the kiddos!

I know that the flower girls won’t really remember the wedding, & the ring bearer might not either (or will only remember the part where he got stage fright). So I love the idea of them having something they can look back on later in life while cleaning their room or going through the attic.

I got this book for my two lovely flower girls. It’s really sweet! Fiona is asked to be the flower girl in her aunt’s wedding – how perfect! Inside I wrote a little message to each of my special girls.


There wasn’t a ring bearer book option that I saw, & I wanted to get my little man something more than just a toy. I was so happy when I saw these custom shirts on Oriental Trading!

I just want the little ones to know how much it meant to my husband & me that they were a part of our big day. Tio & Tia love them very much!

More gifts next week! I think this will be a nice way to end the series.


Wedding Wednesday – Children of the Wedding Party

Hello! It’s Wednesday. We are moving in to our house finally this weekend!

Today I want to share how I got my adorable nieces & nephews involved in our wedding celebration.

I have always loved kids & babies. However, they can be unpredictable. I knew what I was getting myself in to with 2 2-year-old flower girls & a 4-year-old ring bearer!

I figured that whatever the kids decided to do – or not do- during the ceremony would be adorable.

My ring bearer was my cousin’s son, J.

The flower girls were my brother’s daughter, L, & my cousin’s daughter, S. My cousin made the outfits! My mom made the baskets & ring bearer pillow 🙂

J was so excited for the job, but then he got shy. (Thank goodness he didn’t have the real rings)

So when mom helped him walk down the aisle…

S got a little upset.

But eventually she made it, with a little help.

L was a different story. She loves attention & did a great job going down the aisle. Neither one of the girls tossed the paper hearts I had cut out, though.

BONUS KID: My cousin’s husband read Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 during the ceremony. He brought their littlest, baby P, up with him.

I love that my cousin’s whole family participated!

 I was not aware of any of the crying, or anything else really, that went on. I was focused solely on my groom & the holiness of the ceremony.

All in all, I would say that the children did great!

See y’all next week!
