Wedding Child Attendants: Who Pays for Flower Girl Dress and Who Pays for Ring Bearer Tux?

Q: Is the bride expected to pay for the flower girl and ring bearer's attire?

A: Just as for the adult members of your wedding party, agreeing to be in the wedding generally also means agreeing to buy an outfit. Usually, child attendants' parents pay for their clothes, but you might choose to purchase a flower girl's dress or ring bearer's suit as a gift. Decide how you're going to handle it, then go ahead and bring this up at the same time you ask the parents' permission for the tykes to be in the wedding. That way, there's no chance of a misunderstanding.
