Wedding ABCs From

This weekend my little Picasso will be putting on his very first tuxedo and walking down the aisle ( we hope) as the ring bearer in my best friend’s wedding. I have wanted to introduce my readers to Mindy Lockard who is an Etiquette Consultant and the woman behind Manner of The Month Magazine . This seemed like the perfect opportunity. As a mom of two young girls she has realistic advice and tips for parents who want to make manners a priority without expecting too much of little ones.

I am thrilled to be a guest here on No Time for Flash Cards and loved the topic Allie suggested. Being apart of the wedding party is a magical and potentially stressful endeavor for both the parents and flower girl or ring barer. As an etiquette consultant and mother of a three-time flower girl, here are a few tips I’ve learned (some the hard way) to help you help your children make the most of the magic!

Thank you Mindy!

    Great advise – I love the idea of speaking with the bride and groom prior to the wedding to know exactly what they envision for your child's role in their special day.
