  1. Ask her with a special proposal

Extravagant proposals for bridesmaids and groomsmen have become common these days, but don’t forget the littlest members of your wedding party! A flower girl will feel oh so special when you pop the question in a special way: maybe during a nice breakfast together, or with a little gift such as some flowers or pearls or a book. 

flower girl tip number 2 - spend a special day together before the wedding.
  1. Spend some time together before the wedding

You’ll be spending lots of time bonding with your wedding party. While you’re making plans, set aside a day to do something special with your flower girl. You might want to go dress shopping together then go out for tea and cake. If she’s a little older, she might enjoy a spa day. This step can be especially nice if the flower girl doesn’t know one spouse as well.

  1. Give her a special wedding day gift

A delicate piece of jewelry is the perfect way to make your flower girl feel like she’s living in a fairytale. Consider a personalized name bracelet to make her feel super special. Or you might get her a pearl necklace or bracelet that matches your bridal jewelry. Then the two of you will be matching as you walk down the aisle – how sweet is that?

  1. Make some time for her at your wedding

Your wedding day may be a whirlwind, but your flower girl will remember every minute that you spend with her. After all, a bride is basically a princess. During the photo session, make sure to take a picture with just the two of you.

Hi, I'm Julie and I love to share bits of joy.

Like creating special (and fun) family traditions, celebrating the small moments with big hugs and tiny tea parties, and how I’m embracing mama-hood with a smile...and maybe even a little extra time for myself.

I think that family holds so much magic, from babyhood to adulthood. So, it’s important to me that we celebrate all of it - in my own family here in Lompoc California, and in the LGP family all over the world.

I’ve made this blog into a little place where we can do all of those things together, with teacups and toadstools, tied up with a bow.
