“Why Grandma Makes The Greatest Flower Girl”

“Freedom lies in being bold.” -Robert Frost

When planning a wedding, we cannot shy away from being bold. We are planning a day that will live in infamy in the depths of our hearts- forever to be remembered and rejoiced. Let us plan a day that we can be proud to remember, one where we were bold, carefree, and true to ourselves in the midst of rigid tradition.

If you’ve considered having your grandma as a flower girl, having bright blue velvet shoes and bridesmaids with mismatched sequin dresses, or anything in between- DO IT! Be bold. Do all of the things that are slightly unreasonable, and you will see that your day will truly become YOURS.

At The Golden Pineapple Event Company, we encourage each of our brides to think outside the box. There is not a one-size-fits-all wedding, which is why we tailor all of our packages for each individual bride. We want our brides to see themselves in every corner of their wedding, but it starts with bold decisions!

Boldness inspiration found below: 

Wear the Blue Velvet Shoes:


These shoes are a great way to add some fun to your day! Make your “Something Blue” something awesome! Be bold and creative when you are planning these little details, and you’ll have a smile on your face every time you see your shoes (or bracelet or ring or sash).

Go for Grandma:

Grandmas deserve a special place in the wedding festivities. Think outside of the box and invite the grandmas to hold a place of honor in the ceremony: Grandma Flowergirls.

Samantha Mills is the inspiration behind this bold idea, and she has opened all of our eyes to the possibilities behind being bold!

“It just made the day that much more special, for us and for them. They were kinda shocked when we first asked them, but then very excited after they thought about it. I mean, they went shopping together and got matching flower girl outfits! How fun is that?" 

Pick the Carrot Cake:


Be a vanilla bride, be a chocolate bride, be a carrot cake bride, be you. People love a twist on the traditional, so choose the carrot cake, the blue tablecloths, the “naked” icing, and ENJOY your party! 

We hope you enjoyed these bold ideas, and we hope you’ll tune in next time for more inspiration!
