Money Saving tip

Using flower petals on your wedding cake... it will save you some money. Rose Petals would be a good choice. Make sure the petals are edible.

New Ideas

Using a pretty punch bowl for gift envelopes is a good use for one. You can even pick up an inexpensive one from the party store and they look pretty good.


Dear LeeAnn,

What is the appropriate age for a flower girl?



Hi Sierra,

Usually flower girls are between four and eight years old. Younger girls between 2 and 3 make adorable flower girls but might need to be escorted by a parent. If the girl is a little older, you could make her a junior bridesmaid. She would wear a similar dress as the bridesmaids'. Junior Bridesmaids walk down the aisle in the procession, and stand with the other attendants.

Warm Regards,


Love It.........Hate It

Love It:

  • Very pale pink wedding dresses
  • Bridesmaid’s dresses in soft greens
  • Bridesmaid’s dresses with polka dots, such as black dresses white polka dots

Hate It:

  • Single lines at the buffet table at receptions are too slow. Double lines are much better.
