Wedding geek or baby geek? Both!
Nappies, Maya’s bottles, lullabies…they perfectly match with posts about elegant wedding dresses, shoes trends and contryside locations in Tuscany. Don’t you think?
The thing is this: the motherhood has been one of the greatest experiences of my life, but I ended up beeing in a mummy mood all the time – this explains why I wrote this post about little bridesmaids…I’m already dreaming to dress my baby girl with one of those doll dresses…poor Maya, what a terrible mum!
A part from jokes, I selected a few pictures for the freshness of the shot captured by the photographers and I also added a few details about the role of small flower girls in the Italian wedding tradition…

Young bridesmaids roles could be indeed very important: according to the Italian tradition, they should be daughters of friends or relatives, and their age should be between four and eight years old.
A couple of young bridesmaids would walk in front of the bride and would have in hand a basket containing flower petals they throw on their way… A couple of other bridesmaids would follow the bride and according to the tradition would hold tight the veil.
One of them could also have the important role of holding the wedding rings cushion.

From a dress perspective, little bridesmaids dresses should match the bride’s choice: if the bride wears a long dress, bridesmaids should do so; materials most often used for young bridesmaids dresses are cotton during the summer period and velvet or taffeta during winter time… Dresses must be practical for obvious reasons, and better if high waist dresses… without forgetting the tiny crown of flowers and the tiny version of the bride bouquet.
But whatever the little bridesmaids dresses would be, the most important really is to keep the continuity with the style and tone the bride wants to give to her day…
