Wedding Attire: The Flowergirl and Ring Bearer

Today's post is all about the children. They are cute, they are unpredictable, and too often they are dressed as mini brides and grooms (read my rant about that here). The guidelines for selecting your outfits for the youngest members of your wedding party are simple. Keep it basic, keep it inexpensive, keep it comfortable, and keep it age appropriate.

Here are six wedding attire options (three for the girls and three for the boys) – all for under $50.00.

For the Boys:

Option #1 (Total cost of outfit -$44.98):

Target Boys' Cherokee Shirt/Tie Combo in Cornflower Blue – $12.99:
