I'm clueless when it comes to this stuff. How do we go about getting the Flower Girl and Ring Bearer's outfits? Do I just pick something out, do the parents of the FG or RB and I go together to pick something out, do I pick several outfits myself and then tell them to pick the one they want, or do I just let the parents take care of it and I don't have much involvement? Also, how far in advance do I need to do this? My wedding is five months away.
I really have no idea how this typically works. I'm not even sure where to get the outfits. I guess we will get FG's outfit from David's Bridal, but I have no idea where to get a RB's outfit. I also don't know who is supposed to pay for their outfits. Is it like the bridesmaids, where they pay for their own dress? To be honest, I don't care all that much what the FG and RB wear, because they will look adorable no matter what. I'm more concerned with staying under the parents' budgets (if they are supposed to pay). This is something I'm willing to give up control of and just get something the parents and children are happy with.
So if someone could give me some guidance of how I should go about this, it would be much appreciated. In case it matters, our FG lives locally, within a half-hour drive from us, but our RB lives several states away (about an 8-hour drive), so there's no way I could meet up with RB and his parents. Thank you!
