How to Pick the Right Dress for Your Flower Girl?
Colour and Style
Yes, the bride has free-reign when it comes to choosing flower girl dresses. No rulebook dictates the right style, color, fit and fabric. Most brides pick something that ties the flower girl to the wedding theme. Ivory and white colors mimic the bride’s dress. It connects the flower girl to the bridal palette.
Flower girls are dressed according to the season. If the wedding takes place in warm weather, then the dress is short sleeved and is paired with open-toed shoes. If the wedding happens in cold months, then the wardrobe has tights and sweaters. So, mind the weather when picking her dress.
When it comes to picking the flower girl’s dress, avoid fretting about picking the perfect piece. Don’t get anything frumpy and oversized. The form-fitting gowns are a bit restrictive; you have to leave the alteration for a bit later.
Unlike bridesmaids who can use the dress years later, the flower girl can’t reuse the dress later because she will grow up. So, be mindful about how soon you order the dress and account her growth to avoid any last-minute issue.
The fabric needs to match wedding aesthetics. Just stay away from heavy, and itchy stiff. The flower girl shouldn’t bear stiff fabric because she will move around a lot wearing the dress. Unlike the mother of the bride dresses, don’t pick satin because the young girl will wrinkle or rip it. You need to pick something durable and comfortable.
So, if you are picking a dress for the young girl, you better choose between organza and chiffon. Stick to layering and avoid silk because the material is prone to tearing.
Flower girl dresses are either floor length and tea length. The second one is better as it doesn’t drag on ground or make you tip-off.
Floor length dresses are more formal and elegant. They are ideal for older flower girls. You also have to pick the right neckline. Stick with high necklines to keep the girl safe from any mishaps.
The bride can buy the flower girl’s dress. There are bridal shops and online stores that have great offers for bridal, maid and flower girl dresses. Some dresses are specifically designed for flower girls but its better if you take the affordable approach. You have to check the price before you settle on a dress.
A general rule of wedding planning, you have to stay away from anything very expensive. The style is important, but you don’t have to overpay for it. You need to find something that is close in style but isn’t very heavy on your pocket.
