You picked your dress and your bridesmaids dresses, but what about your flower girls dress? While it is only one dress, there are many things to consider to make your flower girl comfortable. Here are some tips to finding the perfect flower girl dress:
Make sure the dress age appropriate:
What this means is, pick a dress that will work with the age group your flower girl is in. The younger the flower girl, the better it is to have a shorter length flower girl dress to avoid sudden falls and accidents. Older flower girls could have floor length dresses.
Pick a style that matches the theme:
Being a flower girl means being part of the group of women in the wedding. This also means finding a dress that matches both yours and your bridesmaids—in style. You can find someone to custom design a flower girl dressed based on your dress and the bridesmaids or visit different bridal shops to search through their selections to find a flower girl dress that matches the agreed upon style.
Choose between matching or complimenting colors:
Many brides opt to have their flower girl in a dress that doesn’t necessarily match the bridesmaids, but instead is a color that fits the scheme. Ideas could be having a pastel spring wedding and while your bridesmaids wear a light blue, your flower wears a pastel yellow—still fitting the color scheme, but standing out.
Pick a comfortable dress—and shoes:
When dealing with flower girls, most tend to be very young and some may not even be able to speak yet. This is where comfort is key and while style is important, you don’t want to cause a breakdown on the aisle. The texture of the flower girl dress should be comfortable, non-constricting and durable. Also, to go along with the dress is a comfortable pair of flats.
Fit a budget:
Money can be tight during weddings and flower girl dresses should not be expensive. If you cannot afford to custom design or buy an official flower girl dress, then a party dress can suffice. This will also ensure no one will feel put out to pay for an expensive dress if it can be avoided.
