Choosing ring bearer outfits and flower girl dresses is one of the most fun parts of wedding planning. There are so many adorable things to choose from, so here here are some guidelines for choosing ring bearer attire:
Consider the theme of your wedding. For example, if you are getting married in Cape Cod in the summer, a sailor outfit might be the perfect choice. If you are getting married indoors at a very formal venue, you should probably go with a mini tux or suit. If your wedding is vintage or Victorian, a miniature turn-of-the-century design might be absolutely adorable on your ring bearer. There is no one-size-fits-all for ring bearer outfits; use your judgment and try to keep in line with your theme, season, and venue.
Try to blend your ring bearer’s outfit with the rest of the wedding party. It doesn’t have to match perfectly, but it is a good idea to add an element of color to his outfit; for example, if the bridesmaids’ dresses are coral, give him a small coral bow tie.
Don’t forget the ring bearer’s pillow. Remember that you are picking out another wedding accessory, so try to find a pillow in similar tones and fabrics to the rest of your wedding. For fancier weddings, choose a satin pillow; for vintage weddings, consider a pillow with tulle fabrics, ruffles, or pearls.
One of the least likely places for newly weds to think of when considering honeymoon ideas is Panama. It should definitely be on your list of places to consider though! Not only is it easy to get to, the country is rich in history, culture, and adventure. Here are a few reasons to begin searching for honeymoon packages in Panama:
- Accessibility. Many major airlines fly to Panama, and because of that, flights there are getting cheaper. You can even take a boat ride from Colombia, or a bus ride from Costa Rica. Many of the people in Panama speak English, which is helpful, and the currency exchange is easy; Panama uses the U.S. dollar, officially called the Balboa.
- No matter when your honeymoon is, it will be summer weather in Panama! It does rain more often in some seasons than in others, but it is usually only in the tropical areas (and not for more than an hour a day).
- The people of Panama are warm and friendly, and the culture is rich, with influences from Spain and France. Seven Indian tribes still live in Panama, such as the Wounaan tribe, the Embera, Bribri tribe, and the Teribe tribe.
- Panama is one of the best honeymoon spots for adventure. You can go snorkeling or diving in the Pacific or in the Caribbean, hike trails in the jungle, go kayaking, surfing, or hike along a volcanic crater (at the top, you will have views of both oceans). Panama is full of activities and honeymoon ideas for those who like to stay active.
