4 Things You Should Know Before You Choose Your Flower Girl

Having a flower girl is the best way to make that little one in your family feel special on your big day. They are the first ones to appear on your wedding aisle and announce your arrival. In fact the flower girl and the ring bearer are going to be the cutest members in your wedding party. Traditionally, all the flower girls were meant to wear white and replicate the bride, but not anymore. You can make them look cute and adorable in classic ivory tutus, satins and silks, with a big bow sash that matches your wedding theme.

Here are a few things to consider before you go out to choose your favorite flower girl.

Her Age

Flower girls are generally 3 to 8 years old. Consider her age before you choose a flowing gown for her. Also a young flower girl will always add to the charm and create some awe amongst the guests. Make sure she is old enough to understand your instructions and perform her duties well. Her age will define what she can do, whether its petal toss or banners or something more.

If you can't resist having a young flower girl who is less than five years old, make sure you have an adult supervising them all the time. You may have great ideas to deck them up in beautiful tutus or flowing gowns but will they be comfortable in such clothes, is the question.

Choosing the Perfect Swimsuit for Summer in 2015

Summer 2015 is promising to be one of the hottest, so its time to put on your favourite swimsuit and head to the nearest pool or beach. Don’t have a favourite swimsuit, not sure which one to choose, well I am here to help. It’s as easy as two steps to have you looking your best poolside.

First and most important when choosing the perfect swimsuit is cut. The basic types are the one piece, the tankini, the bikini and the monokini. Don’t be scared that most of those rhyme with "teeny". There are a variety of swimsuits that will suit your body type and shape.

Have a few "trouble areas" or sections you'd rather cover up? Don’t only focus on hiding imperfections; highlighting your assets is just as important in choosing the right swimwear.

For gals who want to minimize the tummy, choose a one piece with ruching around that area. A ruched swimsuit with a push up bra will hide your tummy, and draw attention to your girls. If you want a little more coverage down below, pick a swimsuit with a skirted bottom. Choose a cute tankini with a skirt, or a one piece with a skirt. Go ahead, loose the wrap and step out in confidence.

If you have no trouble zones and just want to show some skin, bikinis now are sexier than ever, low cut hipsters and side tie bottoms are all cute. Monokinis will give you that sexy backless effect, so dare to bare...a little bit more.

Choosing the perfect swimsuit is not all about cut. Colour is just as important. Use my tips and tricks to pick the best cut, and then have fun with colour. Mix and match colours, try a turquoise bandeau top, with a hot pink bottom for your next bikini. Tribal and ethnic prints make any monokini pop. And forget that "black is slimming" for all your swimsuits. Pick your favourite colour and pattern, red, bright yellow, or polka dot.
