Dressing the Flower Girl

She might be the littlest member of your bridal party, but your flower girl is there to add some extra cuteness to your day. Make sure she feels special by choosing the right dress.

When it comes to deciding on a style, remember that traditionally, the flower girl is dressed in the same hue as the bride, whether white, ivory or cream. However, recent brides have abandoned the rules of the past and have chosen to dress their flower girls in the same color as their bridesmaids or have used her dress to draw attention to a specific color. And remember, it is not a rule that all flower girls must wear a scratchy ball gown. Flower girl dresses today range from tutus to silk slips, even jumpers. Whether her dress is a similar color to the bridesmaids or something bold that stands out completely, the possibilities are endless. Since there are plenty of options to choose from, begin by narrowing down your search by designer and price range. Consider Italian designers like Dolce and Gabbana and Rina di Montella.

Regardless of what dress you choose, don’t forget to give your little princess a few floral accessories. Whether it’s a fancy basket of petals or a simple floral wreath for her hair, your flower girl will need a few blooms to help her live up to the title. Keep in mind that having children in the ceremony means there’s only so much one can control. Rest assured that whatever the flower girl does – cries, drops the basket or lifts up her dress – her personality and preciousness will make guests smile.
