Flower girls have a special place in every wedding as they pave the way for the bride! Traditionally, the flower girls toss flowers from their baskets as they walk down the aisle. Recently, we've seen different trends and alternatives for flowers and props. Here are our favorites.

Single Stems:

Instead of carrying a basket, have your flower girls carry a single stem of a similar flower to your bridal bouquet. For example Alliums, Peony and Dahlia are popular choices.

It used to be that only women would choose custom for their wedding day. But we're seeing more and more men opting for a custom suit or tux on their wedding day. With this recent focus on men's fashion, we've spent some time working with JB Clothiers to learn more about the custom suit experience. Jerry Bakhchyan taught us the 3 most important elements in men's suits: Quality of Fabric, Construction Detail, and Fit.

INSIDE $10 MILLION ARMENIAN WEDDING

On July 1, 2017, Gaspar Avdolyan and Lola Osmanova got married at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, CA. While all weddings are memorable, this one became unforgettable for many factors, one mainly being the price tag.

What stood out for us was that this was an Armenian wedding, and the couple incorporated Armenian traditions into their wedding. And so our team reached out to some of our contacts to bring you an inside look into Gaspar and Lola’s wedding.

First, meet Gaspar and Lola. Gaspar Avdolyan is the son of successful Armenian telecommunication businessman Albert Avdolyan.
