Choosing Your Flower
If you have decided on a flower girl for your wedding, it is time to
choose her dress, which can actually be a fun time for her and you.
After all, next to the bride, the flower girl will be getting a lot
of the ‘ooh’s’ and ‘ahh’s’.
When choosing a flower girl’s dress, begin by checking out boutiques
that specialize in children’s wedding wear. A regular wedding shop may
be able to help, however usually these shops will only adjust adult
measurements to fit a small child, which could cause the dress to look
disproportionate to the child’s body frame.
Although the bride may already have a design in mind for choosing the
flower girl’s dress, remember that the parents will be paying for it,
unless otherwise arranged. Let the flower girl’s mom and the flower
girl, herself give opinions to the dress you are looking at and be sure
it is in a price range they can afford.
Remember to keep in mind that little girls grow fast, when choosing
your flower girl’s dress. If you are ordering the dress six months in
advance, you may want to add a few inches to the dress, which can then
be altered the week before the wedding. Just like with any dress, it
will be easier to take it in than adding material to a dress that is
Little girls like to feel like princesses in their dresses. So consider
a smaller make to your wedding gown when choosing a flower girl’s dress.
Traditional flower girl dresses are usually white with full, ruffle
skirts underneath to give them the ‘bridal’ look. Flower accented dresses
are also popular among flower girls. Use hoop slips to give them that
princess look. Keep in mind the material you are selecting. A soft,
silky feel will leave your flower girl less fidgety versus and rougher
material that will make them itch and feeling uncomfortable.
When choosing your flower girl’s dress, do not forget to find matching
accents for her hair. Decide if you want her hair up or down. With either,
adding baby’s breath and ribbons will give her a beautiful look of enchantment.
Also let her parent’s know what type of shoe you would like her to wear
with her dress. If you choose a shorter dress, close toe or an open
sandal, depending on the time of year, would be appropriate. If the
dress is long and flowing, covering her feet, think about letting her
wear white slippers. This will ensure her comfort and make the event
more enjoyable for everyone.
Flower girls add a cute touch to any wedding. Let her carry a beautiful
bouquet or throw flower pedals down the aisle as she walks, which is
usually the tradition of her role. If the child you choose is too small
to walk, decorate a red wagon in a lot of white lace and flowers and
let an older child, or bridesmaid pull the wagon down the aisle.
