I absolutely love the idea of a wedding video mix from all of the guests’ phones. I think I’m also going to plan on getting flower crowns for the flower girl, because that is too cute to pass up. They are not my favorite for Bride’s or bridesmaids, but they are very appropriate for little girls. It is also a good idea to keep their hands free by not giving them a mini bouquet.
