The Little Stars of Weddings- Flower Girls & Ring Bearers

Flower girls and ring bearers, they are the shinning stars following in the light of the bride and groom on a wedding day. The playfulness of having children in your wedding reminds us of how we used to daydream of our wedding day and how life is so simple as a child. They create a sense of ease and playful unpredictably sometimes, but somehow children walking down the aisle always seem to create smiles among your guests. One of my favorite part of creating florals is designing pieces for flower girls and ring bearers.  I always love to include a playful, whimsical factor for the flower girls and make them something that they can take home and have long after the wedding. Flower scepters, also called flower wands have become a favorite of mine to create and the girls love them! Here are a few examples;

This one was created for my Etsy Shop, Noonan's Designs, and is created with natural wood sola flowers, light grey felt petals, pearls and feathers, great for all ages and very lightweight.

This adorable flower girl was part of the bride and groom's modern black and white wedding, but the wand still created a fun look for her to carry down the aisle.

Onto the ring bearers, typically couples will just opt for a small boutonniere for them, but when you want to get creative there are lots of options for ring bearers. Choose a creative pillow, bible accents, wooden discs and much more can be created "to carry rings". Here is a great moss covered pillow we've created that would be perfect for a woodland wedding. It's also sold on our Etsy store and created with preserved sheet moss, burlap, a sola flower, and accents of birch branches and feathers.

So when your planning your upcoming wedding don't forget to talk to your florist about creating something special for these little ones, because often times they are in the spotlight, right next to the bride of course!

Leslie + Matt

Leslie and Matt were married in March 2012 at Pear Valley Winery in Paso Robles. I have to say that I love my job a lot, but this wedding was one of my favorites to design! Leslie and Matt were such a fun couple and very trusting of my designing which always makes my job easier. In our meetings she had shown me a few photos and I saw that she keep coming back to photos of flowers that were lush and always had hydrangeas, so I built the inspiration off the hydrangeas and the color palette of yellow, green and white. The coordinator, Sherri, of Madeleine's Bridal Boutique , who on a side note,  I love working with when she has brides on the central coast, had come up with the beautiful linens and chargers that really put the finishing touches on the beautiful reception. I also had so much fun creating the flower girl heart wand for the grooms daughter who is adorable! Enjoy and you can find more photos of their wedding in my galleries here >>>  The photos are by the talented team at Rain Studios.
