For some brides, one of the most memorable members of the bridal squad will be your flower girl. And this sweet little person deserves an even sweeter dress that will stop the show before you walk down the aisle.

What to Look for in a Flower Girl Dress
Kids are constantly growing, and one common mistake is buying the flower girl dress too early and having her outgrow it. Sabatino says you shouldn't buy the dress earlier than four months before the wedding. And if the store has a flexible return policy, she recommends buying two different sizes just in case. You can also look for adjustable features and stretchy materials for extra forgiveness, like the Delfi Collective Elsa Dress, which features a smocked bodice.
With this being said, it's also beneficial to consider the age of your flower girl at the time she'll be walking down the aisle. Tea-length dresses, like David's Bridal Flower Dress, are best for infants and toddlers because it reduces any tripping hazards, while floor-length dresses, like this design from Dessy, are an elegant option for girls who are a little older.
Most importantly, keep the fabric in mind. From the formality of your wedding to the season to the durability of the material, the fabric sets the tone for your girl's look. Tulle, chiffon, and organza are best for a sweet and airy style that is pretty for spring or summer nuptials. With its breezy design, the Ralph Lauren Organza Dress is perfect for a spring wedding. For a fall or winter wedding, we love heavier fabrics like satin or this velvet number from Dessy. No matter if you're opting for tulle or satin, we recommend testing the durability and comfort of the fabric to ensure that your (likely active) little one can run, dance, and twirl the day away without a wardrobe malfunction.
What color dress should a flower girl wear?
Traditionally, most flower girls wear white to match the bride. However, it's your day and you can choose whatever color fits your theme, color palette, and personal aesthetic. For instance, you can opt for a light blue shade like from this designer on Etsy to fulfill your "something blue." Sabatino says that some brides try to coordinate the flower girl dress with the rest of the bridal party, and this can be as simple as adding a sash in a color that matches the bridesmaid dresses. We love how this Linen Flower Girl Dress comes in 20 different sash colors.
Who picks the flower girl dress?
Sabatino says the bride usually provides the main direction for the dress. She may specify whether she wants the flower girl wearing white or another color to match the bridal party and wedding. Still, it's important that the flower girl feels happy and comfortable in the design.
What accessories should a flower girl wear?
Depending on the theme of your wedding, your flower girl can wear cute hair accessories–such as a veil, tiara, or flower crown–and can carry a basket filled with flowers. It's important, however, to make sure your flower girl is comfortable in whatever she's wearing all day.
