Weddings are not as easy as one may think. There’s the invitation to think of, the guest list, wedding decorations that corresponds with the motif, wedding dress, favors, food, cake and the list just goes on. That’s just the part that the couples are to prepare…how about the couples’ parents, bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls and ring /bible bearers?
It’s fun and certainly a proud moment if your kids get to be flower girls or ring bearers in the next wedding event you’ll be attending. As a mom, one has to prepare for this too. First, one has to coordinate with the bride and groom or the wedding planner. If they are to shoulder the expenses for the dresses then all you have to do is take your kid/kids to the fitting and when the dress or suits are finished, you just have to make sure it fits…make necessary adjustments by then. If this is not the case, one should know the theme and motif to be able to buy an appropriate gown or dress for little girls and suitable ties and matching shoes for little boys.
Second, you have to make sure that your kid is in good mood during the ceremony…kids could go fickle-minded at the last moment or agitated especially the younger ones so anticipate tantrums, hunger complains and that. Sure weddings are fun but it could be boring for little kids to wait so make sure you have something with you that would make them busy when that happens. Talking to them about behaving in a wedding would do wonders too but most of the time, they would anyway find it uneasy to stay seated for long. ^_^
