Flower Girls and Ring Bearers
In any wedding ceremony the focus should be on the bride and groom – they’re ones people came to see. It’s an irony that the wedding officiant usually has more to say: he or she is the greeter of the guests, director of the ceremony, and usually the person who speaks the blessing. I do whatever’s possible to keep attention directed toward the couple, like stepping aside if the bride and groom have some vows of their own to say to each other. Yet sometimes the most memorable part of a ceremony may be neither the couple nor the wedding officiant. While flower girls and young boy ring bearers don’t utter a word, they can leave a lasting impression.
Do you find these as endearing as I do?
