Dear Valued Customer, Planning your (or your daughter’s or friend’s) wedding should be a time of fun and celebration. However, it can quickly become a stressful time for you, as well as, those involved in your wedding. While your bridal party will excitedly accept your request to be in your wedding, it’s important that you understand that being in a wedding isn’t free, and the costs of the dress, hair, makeup, shoes, etc. do add up. Therefore, it’s important that you give your attendants a small gift at (or before) the wedding letting them know how much you appreciate the sacrifices they’re making to be in your wedding. This is something that should also be done for the flower girls also. Choosing a gift for a young flower girl can be difficult because they are so young. Therefore, below are a few suggestions to help you find the perfect gift for your special flower girl. Accessories – All little girls love accessories, just like adult women. So, if you are looking for a special way to say “thank you” to your flower girl, consider having a personalized piece of jewelry made for her. For instance, a charm bracelet that contains a charm symbolizing your wedding or a bracelet with a personalized inscription on it are great ideas. Personalized Piece of Clothing or Handbag – To make your flower girl feel extra special, consider giving her a personalized piece of clothing or a handbag. For example, you can have a special shirt made stating, “V.I.P Pass: I’m the Flower Girl,” or something similar” so everyone knows she is a very important person at your wedding. Some flower girls love personalized totes, or handbags, which are also easy to personalize. Gift Card – Depending on the age of your flower girl, you…

We love seeing brides come in and pick out little tuxedos and flower girl dresses with the youngsters in the wedding.
