How do Flower Girls and Ring Bearers learn what to do when they are in a wedding? That was the question children’s book author Penelope Colville Paine set out to answer in 2002 with the publication of 10 Neat Things About Being and Flower Girl and 10 Cool Things About Being a Ring Bearer.
Fast-forward ten years and over 400,000 sales later, these two charming books, published by Paper Posie, are still best-selling favorites of brides around the country. With colorful illustrations by Itoko Maeno, the book's ten easy steps take flower girls and ring bearers through the roles they will play in weddings.
According to Alexa Allen, COO of Paper Posie and kidsatweddings.com, there are over 2 million weddings a year with an estimated 5 million children participating as flower girls, ring bearers, page boys and butterfly girls. “Weddings are one-time events where everything has to be right. You can’t have do-overs,” Allen points out. “Brides, grooms and wedding planners are looking for ways to help make sure children know what they have to do and have fun doing it. Weddings can be very confusing and even scary for little attendants. That’s why 10 Neat Things About Being a Flower Girl and 10 Cool Things About Being a Ring Bearer are so popular: they explain in pictures and words what is expected and they make great keepsakes for the children.”
Thanks to the popularity of the Flower Girl and Ring Bearer books and requests from brides, Paper Posie has developed a line of fun products to keep children better occupied at weddings. These include a Wedding Day Activity Kit chock full of non-messy, on the spot, things for kids to do, Love to Color: an interactive and multicultural Wedding Coloring Book with crayons, plus Flower Girl and Ring Bearer teddy bears, watches and plush piggy banks.
“The long wait times at every wedding are really difficult for kids in the wedding party as well as those attending, not to mention nerve racking for the bride and groom, parents and other guests,” says Allen. “In addition to using diversions like our Wedding Day Activity Kit, we recommend ways to make the day go smoothly such as including favorite foods for children, hiring an entertainer, providing activity tables and arranging for professional childcare.”
