A couple of days ago I sent out “Will You Be My Flower Girl?” cards to my two sweet flower girls, Cousin Kitten and Future Niece Kitten. I basically used the same method as my “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” cards. But since my crafting skills had developed ever-so-slightly since my first round of cards, and I had a little more time on my hands for these, I did a few things differently.
First of all, I used envelopes! I found the right size at Michaels. The first time around I didn’t have envelopes, so I just tied the cards up in pretty ribbon.

Ideally, I wanted to send the cards out with a cookie bouquet full of flower cookies. Then I did some research and found out how much cookie bouquets cost. $62 for seven cookies? Really? I mean, the cookies ARE delicious, but $62? And for a six year old who wouldn’t know the difference between these cookies and any other sugary substance she could get her hands on? I didn’t think so. I would rather put $62 towards the flower girl dress than spend that amount on cookies!
I still wanted to include something else in the package, so I bought some pretty flower shaped stickers and a “Barbie Island Princess” coloring book. The coloring book is all about dolphins and the beach, so I thought it will get them excited about going to the Cayman Islands for our wedding. Here’s what it looked like all wrapped up and ready to go:
I know the parents of the flower girls are dying to see the dresses. We actually haven’t picked them out yet, but we are close to making a decision! More on that later!
