Flower Girl Accessories and Ring Bearer Alternative Ideas {Featured Bride, Alaura K.}

Featured Bride, Alaura K. Wedding Location: Chapel of St. Thomas Aquinas | Wedding Date: September 8, 2012 We recently asked our flower girl and ring bearer to be part of our special day, and we are now choosing all of the flower girl accessories and ring bearer details. I really want the flower girl to be dressed up as a miniature bride, with a white dress and flowers in her hair. I remember being a flower girl and thinking it was the coolest thing ever! My fiancé, Peter, was also a ring bearer as a child, and thought it was special too. We really want to create those special memories with our flower girl and ring bearer too, so we've decided we are going to add unique details to create a memorable experience for them, us, and our guests. If you've been reading my other blogs, you know I've been incorporating some non-traditional elements to personalize our wedding day. It's been very important to us to have the significant people in our lives be part of our wedding!

Unique flower girl accessories and ring bearer alternative ideas.

We've decided we don't want our flower girl and ring bearer to carry the traditional basket and pillow; mainly because we don't want to be traditional, and also because the church won't allow flower pedals to be scattered on the floor. Instead, we are thinking up new ring bearer and flower girl wedding ideas. The flower girl will carry a lace parasol or a princess-like wand with flowers wrapped around it. I think both flower girl accessories are different from the usually flower basket. These options also fit in with our wedding theme, enchanted gardens. Have you ever seen either of these flower girl wedding ideas done before? I've always thought it was strange that the ring bearer carried a pillow down the aisle. We wanted something creative, yet something that represents our relationship. The ring bearer alternative ideas we've come up with so far include a large sea shell we found on our first trip together outside of the country, a baseball glove with the rings tied to it (because our first kiss was at a Twins game), or some sort of swag from the university we both attended, which is where we meet (this is our favorite idea). What other ring bearer alternative ideas have you seen? As we continue to finalize the details for the flower girl and ring bearer, we are getting excited for our upcoming appointment to try on little dresses and tuxes with them at The Wedding Shoppe. They are going to bring innocence and laughter to our special day, and those are the memories we are most excited to create with them.
