Flower girl dresses are the perfect excuse to indulge that inner princess and go mad with pretty pink ribbons, frills, and satin rosebuds. Check out these tips on flower girl dresses as well as some options for dressing your flower girl.
Before you start dreaming about the look of your flower girl dresses, here are some practical things you must keep in mind:
Here are three options for dressing your flower girl:
Creating a unified look with accessories
You might have multiple friends with young daughters that you want to have as flower girls, but you don’t have the budget to purchase flower girl dresses for all of them. Ask their parents to dress them in dresses that look similar, perhaps basic white knee-length dresses and then finish their look with matching accessories like a coloured sash and floral head band.
One of the bridesmaids
One fantastic look is to dress your flower girl in the same style gown as the bridesmaids, but in a lighter or darker shade of their dress colour. A number designers have flower girl dresses in smaller versions of the bridesmaids’ dresses so you can get a co-ordinated wedding party look. Keep in mind that styles for grown up bridesmaids won’t always suit young flower girls; for instance if your bridesmaids are wearing strapless dresses your flower girl might choose something similar but with added straps.
Just like the bride
A classic look for a flower girl is a miniature version of the bridal dress, without the stiff bodice and veil. Flower girls look very cute in white or ivory dresses that resemble the bride, perhaps with a coloured sash to complement the bridesmaids.
