My wedding is July 2nd this year! im so behind in everything im so stressed out. My theme is a rustic wedding theme, colors are Pool blue and dark brown.
I need wording for my invitations, i dont want to include our parents, i dont want it formal in any way. I want it simple and cute. We have a 1 year old daughter and maybe even adding her name into the inviation would be nice. I think things like “best friend” or love laugh with live for and dream with little quotes are cute. But i want ideas on cute wordings. any ideas would be great. I found a little template i like for the invitation but its only like one page… a post card. so how can i make it more then just 1 page. UHG
Oh and i have three flower girls, 14months 18months and 5 year old. Any unique ideas on how to present them, considering the two little ones may decide to do their own thing.

An idea for the kiddos – have the 5 year old pull the smaller ones in a wagon – decorated in your colors of course. Less room for error as they will be riding instead of walking.

I love that idea, but then my 14 month old ring boy will walk alone? Im just so confused..

or the 14 mo ring boy and the 5yr old fg both pull the wagon…..?
I never had to think about a situation as this as both ours are older, just the ringbearer is shy as shit and might only make it halfway down… needless to say he will not be carrying the actual rings. lol

Thats another reason i decided on having multiple flower girls. My daughter will be 17months (so i lied) im going by their ages now. and My cousins kids will be 20months and 5 years. Ringbearer will be 14 months. So i know the two young flower girls may not make it all the way down the isle so having an older one for back up is good. Shoot this is so hard. I may have one of the bridesmaids (my sister) walk with my daughter. Is that weird? and the two girls and the ring boy following. see im so lost.

I would try looking on etsy.com. My brother in law is a designer so he ended up making our invitations but I am pretty sure we stole some wording from ETSY because everything on there is so cute. I love the idea of having the RSVP wording be less traditional too.
Just a quick question- did either set of parents contribute financially? If the answer is yes it is considered rude to not include them on the invite and could unintentionally offend. It might be easier to have your daughter play a role in the ceremony rather than worrying about including her on the invite.
As far as the kid dilemma is concerned we had a similar situation with twin flower girls. My Maid of honor/ sister held the hand of our ring bearer and walked with him which was really cute. Our best man entered with the groom and pastor.
