Here comes the FLOWER GIRL

Emily has been asked to be one of the flower girls at my cousin Christopher's and his fiance's wedding this August. Jessica (the bride-to-be, and my friend) and I found some really cute dresses online, but she decided to go out with her mom to see what she could find in-store. They found this one for Emily for a grand total of $32.30 (tax and all!) on sale from $65. Isn't it pretty??? Emily tried it on this morning and wanted to wear it to school today. Pitched a pretty fit when I told her NO WAY. The pictures don't show it well, but there is really pretty sparkly stuff on the front half of the dress.

We're debating trying to add some of the wedding color ("wild orchid") in the way of a flower or ribbons or something in place of the snowflake shaped pin in the front. We've got some time to play and do some trial and error and stuff, but the dress is really very very pretty as is.

Jared and Connor get to tux up and be in the wedding as well, but we found out renting little boy tuxes costs just as much renting adult tuxes, so I think I'm going to seriously look into BUYING tuxes instead. I found one site that had them for $29.99 (as opposed to renting for $60 and up), but the risk is that we know nothing about those websites and how legit they are!! Anyway, I'll get pics of the boys once we have their tuxes (whether rented or purchased). For now, Enjoy the pics of the Little Miss!

Beautiful!!!!!! And a nice price too : ) With your talent I am sure you can get some of the wedding color in there. If not the dress perhaps her hair.

Gorgeous! It will look amazing with the wild orchid color in it . . . maybe replace the sash/bow? Can't wait to see what you do!

Wow! She looks like she may be getting married herself! What a beautiful girl!

Absolutely beautiful. It looks just like a princess dress (my 4 year old says)

I like how elegant it is in it's simplicity, but a pretty wild orchid tucked into the sash could be beautiful, too!
Can't wait for more pics.

I wish there were more times to dress up fancy. I'd wear a ballgown around the house given the chance! For my brother's wedding they found an online tux rental place. It's legit and very decent prices! I'll get you the information.

She looks like a true princess!

She is so beautiful! I can imagine the fight that happened when school time came around. I looked online at amazon and they have some very cute tuxes that are not to pricey and I think you can pretty much trust them. Just a heads up!
