You can apply much of what you learned from bridesmaid gifts shopping to flower girl and ring bearer gifts. What do they like? What are their favorite colors? Do they collect anything? Prankster ring bearers might enjoy a goofy gift like a yo-yo or a harmonica. A dainty flower girl may prefer a pretty pink backpack or ballet slipper sign. Kids bring humor, character, and seemingly bottomless cuteness to your Big Day, so now that you have your groomsmen gifts, take a little time to shop for the tykes in the group. Most ring bearers and flower girls are family members generously on loan from their doting parents. Reward their good faith by making sure their kids have a fabulous wedding day as little stars of the show.
Another hot wedding trend is to forgo the traditional bridesmaids and groomsmen and just have a crowd of little ones precede you down the aisle. The Desperate Housewives actress Marcia Cross did this in her wedding, and the photos were quite touching. A wee wedding party is a charming option and all you need to do is buy a round of cookies
to make your wedding party smile.
