Of the many wedding details that the bride-to-be has to give attention to before her big day, the flower girl basket is only one. For many, choosing a flower girl basket may be the easiest decision theyll make. For others, making a good selection may seem daunting because of the wide variety of designs available. For these, taking into consideration the future brides color scheme, as well as the flower girls age and size will make it less of a challenge to pick a perfect basket.

A flower girls basket should coordinate with either the brides dress, other accessories or color scheme. For instance, if the wedding dress is white, to have the other ceremony items, such as the ring bearer pillow and flower girl basket in white is the traditional choice. Or, the bride may want to match these items with the colors of her bridesmaids dresses. For example, if the ladies dresses are brown and pink, then the ring pillow and flower girl basket can be covered in brown fabric with pink ribbons or vice-versa. This is an excellent way to bring extra color to the occasion.

What about the baskets size? Here is where the flower girls age and size should be considered. How tall is she? A flower girl basket chosen for a three-year-old most likely will be too small for a ten-year-old. Baskets with shorter handles will be appropriate for two- to five-year-olds, whereas older and taller girls overall look will be balanced by flower girl baskets with longer handles.

How far of a distance will the flower girl have to walk scattering petals? The answer to this question can determine the depth of the basket shell need. For a relatively short distance, a basket of average depth, three to four inches will suffice. But for greater distances, a deeper flower girl basket of six inches or more will be needed to hold enough petals for the long aisle.

Flower girl baskets come in an endless number of shapes and styles. There are the fabric bag-types, square-shaped, round, straw, deep, shallow, ornate, plain, long-handled and short-handled varieties. There is no set rule about what form the flower girl basket should take. But, here again, for an appropriate choice, it will be helpful to think about what will match with the flower girls age. A younger girl in the age range of two to six years may be quite happy with the ruffles, curly bows and frilly lace of some flower girl basket styles. But most older girls will, no doubt, feel more comfortable with the less fussy, plainer styles that dont scream Little Girl!

Deciding on the right flower girl basket will be a hassle-free experience if the flower girls age and size, the bride-to-bes color scheme and the pathway the flower girl has to walk are kept in mind. The result will be the selection of a flower girl basket that will perfectly complement the wedding days little princessthe flower girl.

This seasons styles for both men and women are a combination of statement accessories, fresh, new looks, and some examples of past fashions influencing current ones a trend that is showing up everywhere from jewelry to clothing lines to, you guessed it, sunglasses.


Bright colors are not just for the ladies in summer 2011. Persol has launched a pair of strikingly dark red shades that are knocking socks off everywhere. Colored lenses are a huge deal in mens sunglasses this summer. From blue to brown, olive to burnt orange, dont be surprised when you find classic frames paired with tinted lenses to create some new looks. Crystal clear frames with bright lenses are coming out from multiple designers as well.

Monotone shades are another popular style this year. Matte metal frames with matching lenses are bringing a futuristic aura to the season. Even Tommy Hilfiger has come out with a set of stark black shades that are sleek and classy.

Tortoise shell frames are going to be highly popular this summer. For example, a new partnership between Lacoste and Marchon recently introduced a set of brilliant, yellow tortoiseshell sunglasses. Tom Ford also has a tortoise style; specifically, shades in dark tortoiseshell with tinted lenses and gold accents for the spring and summer line.

The John Lennon trend is a part of mens fashion trends as well, offering a slick, iconic design for virtually anyone. Finally, Aviator sunglasses have become a widespread phenomenon in recent years, and now feature multiple lens colors, transitional lenses, and even camouflage frames!


Bling is one of the hottest trends in sunglasses this year. From a few dazzling rhinestones here and there to completely blinged out shades with gems studding the entire frame, this glamorous look is emerging everywhere from sleek and sexy sunglasses to more playful, girly frames.

Oversized shades and bright colors are also hot right now. Reminiscent of Jackie O, larger-framed sunglasses come in a wide array of colors. They are great for adding to your fashionable beach attire or simply to conceal tired eyes on a day without makeup while also protecting them from the sun. Cats eye sunglasses are a huge trend this summer as well. With a little modern tinkering, these 50s fashion explosions have burst onto the scene again.

John Lennon-style shades are back as well. This minimalist design has caught the eye of many sunglass designers this summer. Lennon shades look great with anything from a swimsuit cover-up, to a breezy summer dress, without overpowering your face or concealing too much. These attributes help make this style one of the most versatile you will find.
