Little Charmers

January 08, 1995|By Vida Roberts | Vida Roberts,Sun Fashion Editor

The faces of the youngest members of a wedding party mirror the magic that the wise ones sometimes miss in the whirl. To the little ones, it is their day in a storybook world -- the bride is the beautiful princess who always smiles, the groom is strong and hTC brave, and the reception is a wonderland of treats and flowery fantasies.

If they sometimes skip over the formalities and get up to a little mischief, who can fault them? Wide eyes, scrubbed faces and a dress-up demeanor are always forgiven.
