Role of the Flower Girl
The proposal-- it is the moment that most women wait for their entire lives. Some answer it with laughter, some with tears, but in most cases, the answer is always the same--yes. The engagement is announced, the date is set, and the bride is whisked away to complete an overwhelming amount of tasks in planning for it. During the hectic months before the wedding, the bride makes important decisions such as which color their wedding will be themed in, where the wedding ceremony and reception will be held, how to handle catering, who the bridesmaids are, and, equally as important, who the flower girl will be. 

So, what is a flower girl anyway, and what is the importance of having one in your wedding to begin with? Flower girls, or "little brides", have been a major part of the wedding tradition since the roman times, and while the styles have been changed throughout the years, the role that the flower girl plays remain the same. The flower girl is the last of the wedding party to make her entrance in the ceremony before the bride emerges. 

Originally, these girls would carry herbs and wheat. According to ancient Roman tradition, the purpose of the wheat is to bless the couple with prosperity and bounty, whereas the herbs are meant to spice up the new marriage. In Medievals times, flower girls carried garlic in order to protect the young couple from the Black Plague. When the Victorian era began, the style of the dress was paid attention to, and the superstition regarding the contents of the young maiden's basket was less important. Today, the dress is still an important part of the wedding, and the flower girl's attire most often matches that of the bride's. 

The role of the flower girl is simple and elegant. Upon entering the ceremony, the chosen girl walks down the aisle in the same fashion as the rest bridal party. As she walks, she gathers flower petals from a basket that she carries, daintily distributing them on the floor. This creates a festive tone for the ceremony and thus paves the way for the bride to enter. Generally, the child is between the ages of four and eight. Once a girl grows past the age of eight, she usually becomes a junior bridesmaid instead, and the role of the flower girl is passed down to someone else.

How to Dress Kids in Wedding
Weddings are special occasions in which everyone, not just the bride and groom, wants to look their best. Men make sure they look handsome in their best suits, women don't leave their house until they're wearing their best dress and feel beautiful, and that means kids can't stay behind. Regardless of the age, a kid that's all dressed up for a wedding always looks adorable - and isn't that what all parents want?

How to make sure that your child is ready and looks adorable the day of the wedding you're attending? If it's a girl, there are countless dresses to choose from. 

Dresses with satchels are among the top dresses for girls to wear to a wedding. Not only is the color of the satchel a nice contrast to the rest of the dress, making it stand out more, but it also adds a little bit of waistline and a puff to the bottom of the dress, giving your little girl a princess look. Want to make your little girl look extra cute? Make sure her satchel matches the color of the wedding decorations. 

Dresses with floral decorations are also a favorite for many, especially because there's a number of ways floral decorations can be added to a dress. If it's a satchel dress, you can add a flower to the satchel. Another creative twist on this is having rose petals at the bottom of a satin dress. This is a nice contrast, the petals give your little girl an elegant and very chick look, and if you get the petals to match the color of the wedding decorations, she'll stand out even more. 

A third and also great choice for a wedding is the Pick Up Dress. Most come in bright colors, which are perfect for occasions like weddings, and the way in which it's layered gives the dress an extra puffiness at the bottom, perfect for making any little girl look even more adorable. 

Wondering how to dress up your little boy and make sure he looks as handsome as can be? A suit is what you want. Little boys are cute when they're dressed up, but when you put a little boy in a suit for a wedding, he will easily catch everyone's attention at the wedding. There are two different types of suits you can choose from for your little one. 

The first one is the vest set. While vest suits usually come in black, grey and blue, the color of the shirt and tie can be just about any color you think your little boy will look best in. You can even get the color to match the wedding decorations to look extra prepared. 

You can take things one level higher by going with the second option: the tuxedo. Not only is a tuxedo a lot more formal and reserved for special occasions such as weddings, but it will also have everyone admiring how handsome and adorable your little boy looks

This form of positive conditioning will become innate in the years to come. What is really important is that children pick up on what we see do. Allow them to see you engaging in behavior that mirror what you expect from them. 

As parents we are our children best role models. If we want them to be leaders of tomorrow, we have to start at home, today. Practice developing character by doing. To help children to better understand about sharing and giving we have to teach empathy. Why not take part in a toy drive. Make them understand that there are people who are needy, and we should help out when we can.

Dressed and Undressed

How Parents Can Help Children Choose Clothing
Understanding how to dress a child is another task that parents must learn. Having children attired in fashionable garments is possible when parents make good shopping decisions. Often, clothing manufactured specifically for children is sewn from flame-retardant materials. A parent must examine each garment for safety concerns such as zippers that can pinch sensitive skin or loose embellishments that are a choking hazard. Garments are usually easy to machine wash and tumble dry on laundry day. Because children grow quickly, most parents want to purchase clothing that is reasonable priced. A child also wants a comfortable style that allows moving with ease. 

Dressing an Infant Appropriately

Before a baby is born, families begin gathering clothing such as bodysuits, pajamas, outerwear, booties and diapers. Clothing for infants must easily fit over cloth or disposable diapers. Buying garments with snap openings is vital to make it simple to change diapers quickly. Choose clothing made from soft but insulating fabrics that are quick to wash and dry. Dressing a baby fashionably is still possible because clothing manufacturers create many different designs. There are garment options for boys in blue fabrics with embellishments of sport teams, cars and animals. Alternatively, baby girl’s clothing is often in pink hues with designs of flowers, hearts or bows. 

Types of Clothing Needed by Toddlers

A toddler requires rugged clothing that can withstand crawling and rough play. Many children this age alternate between wearing diapers and toilet training. Making it easy for a child to push down pants or shorts during a bathroom visit is essential. Alternatively, parents may want to buy garments that have snap openings to make it simple to change a rambunctious toddler’s diaper. Clothing for toddlers must fit nicely with a small amount of looseness for rapid growth. Due to rapid growth, buying garments with adjustable straps is a great plan. Children may begin to request particular colors, styles or designs of clothing. A toddler may also want to wear garments with favorite television or movie characters. Giving a toddler an opportunity to choose clothing is a great way to help a child develop independence. 

Clothing for School-Age Children
School-age children definitely have independent ideas about clothing styles. Dressing like friends is vitally important for older children. Fashions for this age group change rapidly making it impossible for parents to keep up with the current trends. The best plan is to communicate carefully with a child before buying garments. Parents should bring a child along on shopping trips to try on garments while choosing acceptable clothing. Many schools require specialized uniforms while establishing other requirements for garments such as pant length or shirt style. Finding basic sweaters, slacks, shirts and skirts for school activities is of primary importance. At the same time, older children should also have dressy garments such as dresses or suits for special occasions. Parents may also need to discuss a family’s clothing budget with older children who demand expensive garments.
