Most flower girl dresses are white, but contain a large, colorful accent, such as a big bow or sash. This accessory is usually ordered in the same color as the bridesmaid dresses.
Order the dresses. Consult the parents on size. If a child is going through a growth spurt, you may need to order a larger size to accommodate growth before the wedding. Order a size that can be altered to allow for growth.
Decide how many flower girls you want in your wedding. Some brides choose several young relatives or friends to walk down the aisle together. This is a great solution if choosing one child would leave hard feelings among the families of those who are left out.
Decide on a color. Flower girl dresses may be the same color as the bridesmaids' attire, or an accent color. Or they may be white with a sash or other trim in the wedding colors. Bridal magazines and Internet sites are good places to look for ideas and options.
Discuss your choices with the girl's parents. If you're asking the parents to pay for the dress, you should take cost into consideration. Remember that a growing child probably won't be able to fit into the dress for very long, so opt for a style that could be worn for more than one occasion or passed down to a sibling.
Choose a style for flower girl attire. One option is the make the flower girl dresses a smaller version of the bridesmaids' dresses, but sytles suitable for adults may not be suitable children. Take into account the preferences of the child. An uncomfortable flower girl may be an unhappy flower girl, so if the child hates frilly dresses, consider something tailored. If you have several flower girls, consider a slightly different style dress for each girl, depending on her age. Unify the outfits by making them the same color.
Tips & Warnings
If you have more than one wedding color then you may want to put your flower girl in the second color, as the bridesmaids will likely be decked out in the primary wedding color.
It's always a good idea to run your final flower girl dress selection by the girl's mother. Chances are she wouldn't object anyway, but it's a nice, effortless courtesy that she'll likely appreciate.
Involve your flower girl in choosing her own dress. This will make her feel special and make the experience more fun for her.
That was a very insightful of u to share flower girl dress tips. I agree that it is important for flower girl dress to be just right. It must go with the theme of the wedding. More preferably, with the bride's dress herself.
