Cute Warning Signs
Solemnity is trendy once again, but that’s sadly threatened by social media and technology.

An Alternative to Flower Girls
Picking flower girls in the lower-age bracket is a double-edged sword. They can be the cutest – if they choose to walk down the aisle, smile, and throw flowers according to instructions. On the other hand, if they happen to be cranky on the big day, good luck even making them walk down the aisle. Some parents/guardians end up accompanying them instead.
