Happy Wednesday! For today’s “Wedding Wednesday” update I wanted to share a post on one of my favorite parts of wedding planning so far; my ‘flower girl proposal’! If you follow me on social media you probably know how obsessed I am with my nieces, nephews, and goddaughters. While so much of our wedding plan is uncertain (thank you global pandemic), having kiddos involved in the wedding is one thing Alex and I have always been sure of.
First let’s talk about my flower girls proposal. I knew I wanted to ‘propose’ to them with a gift, just like I did with my bridesmaids. We’re going to have 4 flower girls! 🙊 I asked my nieces / goddaughter with what i think is an adorable, and affordable, flower girl proposal gift – a custom card with an initial necklace.
My nieces absolutely loved their necklaces and were so excited about the whole thing. I love that these proposal cards are customizable – not only with their name but with the question as well. We are having my oldest niece Gracie and goddaughter Adelaide as junior bridesmaids, so I also gave them this proposal gift but, of course, with the card saying ‘junior bridesmaid’.
Up next: ring bearers! There are far more girls in my life than boys (I have two nephews – but one of them is in his 20’s!) So, we decided to have 2 ring bearers – my nephew Caleb and my niece Sally. I just love the idea of having a female ring bearer! I’m going to have Sally wear a suit and bow tie and I just know she is going to be the coolest little kiddo! I can’t wait!
Since I couldn’t find any ‘ring bearer proposal gifts’ that weren’t specifically designed for boys, I decided to make my own. Sally loves coloring so I decided to make a coloring page of a girl that looks like Sally and ask the question on the coloring page. As you can see in the photos below, Sally was super excited about it! She’s such a ham in front of the camera haha.
I’m really excited to have our wedding party organized. In total we’ve got a best man, matron of honor, 2 bridesmaids, 2 groomsman, 2 junior bridesmaids, 1 junior groomsman, 4 flower girls and 2 ring bearers! It’s going to busy haha!

Next up on our wedding planning schedule: hiring a wedding planner! We’ve met (virtually) with three planners and just need to make our final decision this week. I’ve actually learned a lot from the process of hiring a wedding planner and will definitely share a blog post over the coming months on questions to ask when trying to pick a wedding planner!
