When you're planning a wedding, there a ton of dresses to think about. You've got to think about and shop for what you, your bridesmaids, and your mom will ultimately wear on the special day, but fair warning: you may find that the cutest one is often the hardest to find! Yes, we're talking about what your adorable little flower girl will wear—because, obviously, everything is cuter in a mini size, right?
But, seriously, you may find it hard to shop for someone who isn't your size. Which is where we come in! To help you and your little attendant (and her mom) find the prettiest, most reasonable, and simple sweetest dress for your big day, we put together a photo gallery of the cutest flower girls from real weddings. Below, you'll find even more inspiration than you need—from dresses with fluffy tulle skirts to chic ones with peter pan collars and adorable color-coordinated sashes. And, of course, we must mention the hair accessories as well. Because, as these photos show, the little ladies can be all done up in flower crowns, pigtails, bows and more. Basically, with this much of cuteness overload, we feel confident that you'll find the look that suits you, your wedding, and your squad of mini-attendants. And as if that wasn't enough, we've also included tales from their memorable walks down the aisle. Yes, you can go ahead and cue the "Aws!"
So whether you're having just one flower girl or a dozen (a la Kate Moss!), keep scrolling to see flower girl dresses, flower crowns, and more. We think you'll love what you see!
