Precious Flower Girl Baskets for the Big Day
Your big day is approaching, and there are so many details to plan! It seems like just yesterday that you were dining at your favorite brunch spot when he got down on one knee and took out that little black velvet box. Though you spent many days, months, years even, as a young girl planning for your big day, now that it's finally approaching, you're feeling more overwhelmed than ever. Of course you are excited, ecstatic even - this is the moment you've been waiting for all of your life! There's just so much to plan.
You've got to find the dress, find the shoes, find the veil, pick the party location, book the caterer, get gifts for the bridesmaids, find dresses for the bridesmaids, find a dress for the flower girl, select the flower girl, select your bridesmaids and your maid of honor - will the list of what you need to do ever end?
The answer is yes - it will, and on your big day, it will all be worth it. In the meantime, enlist help from your family and friends to get you organized. Your mom will be more than happy to participate in any part of the action - she just wants to be involved, so why not let her? And when it comes to the flower girl, we've got the basket covered.
A beautiful pearl sequin covered flower girl basket is a great choice for an all-white wedding.

If you're daring enough to have any black at your wedding (more power to you!), consider a black satin flower girl basket.

Whether you're customizing by monogram, color, or theme, there's sure to be a basket out there that is perfect for your big day and your little flower girl.
