Are you having a flower girl?

Recommended Posts

The only little girl we have coming is FI's 6 year old niece. I keep asking him to ask his sister if she would be a flower girl, but he hasn't yet. Now I am thinking do we even NEED a flower girl? What are your thoughts?

I would really love a flower girl but we aren't having one sad.gif - We had three, FI's cousin's daughters, but she just found out she is pregnant again and due right around our wedding date so they can't come.

 

I don't think you have to have one - it is totally up to you

You definitely don't need one, but we're having my 8-yr-old niece as our flowergirl. She really wanted to be part of the wedding and is very excited about her "job"!

Not necessary, but my 2-year-old niece is such a doll so I picked her. Aside from cousin's kids that we don't see much, there aren't any other children the right age in the family. So we don't have a ringbearer.

My cousin's daughter will be my flower girl, she'll be 4 next April. I'm also having a ring bearer, my Uncle's son, he'll be 5. It's totally up to you, though. I only included them because before I decided on which resort to have my wedding I asked my cousin if she wanted to bring her daughter. She decided yes, so I had to find a kid friendly resort and that's why I now have a flower girl and Ring Bearer.

i think that if you don't have a ring bearer, no one will notice whether you have a flower girl, but if you DO have a ring bearer, FI's sister might actually get offended if you don't ask for her daughter to be in the wedding, since she's the *only* little girl. it might come off like you are purposely excluding her, KWIM?

 

you certainly don't NEED one. but if you WANT one, you should have one. and don't take what i said above to mean you have to have both, either. it's perfectly acceptable to have only one or the other. whatever you and FI want ... it's YOUR wedding! :)

My FI has an 8 yr old niece. She's going to be the ONLY kid coming to the wedding so we asked her to be our flower girl. She's very very very excited about it (she loves attention, LOL)!

FI finally asked his sister if her daughter would be our flower girl. Now my question is do we buy her dress or tell her what dress to buy? Our gifts to our bridal party is their attire, so I guess we should get her dress. What do you think?

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
