One of the challenges in planning a wedding is how to occupy the energy and the minds of the little flower girls and ring bearers. After all, they are just little so sometimes the dress is scratchy, the tux is hot, and the new shoes hurt! Did I mention that they might be a little shy also?
We have found that sometimes the kids just need something familiar and “cool.” So nows the time when we would like to introduce to our teddy bear.
Teddy is a soft and cuddly stuffed teddy bear. His necklace is made from braided ribbons, while enhanced with artificial flowers in the colors of the wedding. Last Saturday’s wedding at Heinz Chapel allowed us to use hot fuchsia and purple colors against a white bear for a stunning contrast. So, Teddy wears the flowers,and the flower girl holds teddy. She smiles really nice, is as cute as a button and has a take home forever gift to keep!
We think you will agree that our teddy, who was given the name ”Sammy,” went very well with our wedding colors. Enjoy!
