Mercedes, on January 5, 2022 at 10:09 PM

Do I pay for my Flower Girls dress and shoes or do her parents pay? Both of her parents are also in the wedding so I'm guessing it's only fair that I should pay? What are your thoughts?

Is the venue's service fee considered their tip?
Layla, on January 6, 2022 at 10:13 AM
