Now that you have finally chosen a date, dress, place, time and wedding party, it is now time to figure out what to put your beautiful flower girl in. There are a few main concerns when choosing the perfect flower girl dress. These are formality style, color, comfort, and length.
Something to keep in mind when choosing the perfect flower girl dress is formality. The formality of her dress will depend on the formality of the wedding. If you are having your wedding on the beach, then your flower girl dress should be something in light and airy colors, such as pastels (light pinks, blues, yellows, etc.) and simple designs. If you are having your wedding in a ballroom setting, then you want to pick a fancy dress for your flower girl.
When choosing the style of your flower girl dress, keep in mind that you want to stay within the style of the wedding. As she is walking down the aisle in front of the bride, gently tossing the flower petals on the floor, all eyes in the room will be on her first. You can stay calm in knowing that even though wedding styles have dramatically changed over the years, the style of the flower girl dress has not changed that much. You can choose to have this beautiful little girl's dress made into a special little version of wedding gown or even a flower girl version of the bridesmaid dresses. As long as you tie the style of her dress into the style of the wedding somehow, you will be fine with style.
When choosing the color of your little flower girl dress, you also want to maintain the colors in the wedding. If you choose to go with having her dress in a miniature version of the bridal gown, but you still want some color in it, you can incorporate some of the color scheme by putting pretty ribbons and bows in her hair or maybe some small flowers pinned on her dress (carefully of course). You could also just use a colored floral accent that will match the color in the bridesmaid dresses.
There are two different lengths that you should consider when picking your flower girl dress, floor-length and tea-length. If you choose tea-length, make sure the socks or tights that you choose to go with it are appropriate for the style of the dress you choose. If you decide to go with floor-length, make sure that your flower girl will not trip over it. In my opinion, tea-length is probably your best choice.
