Pick a Color

When picking the color of your flower girl’s dress, take your wedding style and color palette into consideration. If you’re planning a traditional wedding, it’s recommended to opt for a white flower girl dress, which mirrors the bridal gown or bridesmaids’ attires (here’s a trick: if you want to spruce up a white flower dress with some color, you can pick any bright hue from your wedding palette and incorporate it into your little one’s apparel by putting a lovely ribbon or bow in the hair, giving her a pomander or a basket, pinning a flower to the dress, or whatever you find appropriate).

At the same time, in terms of informal weddings, the flower girl doesn’t necessarily have to be clad in white or ivory Your little princess will look even sweeter when dressed in light blue, purple, pink, or any pastel hue that flawlessly fits in with your wedding color scheme.

Choose a Perfect Length

When choosing a flower girl dress, there are usually (but not always) two lengths to consider – floor-length or tea-length. For a younger “petal tosser”, we recommend you go for the shorter dress (make sure that tights or socks match the dress) – though longer frocks look fabulous, the last thing you want is your little one feeling embarrassed or even falling in the middle of the reception. However, if an older girl is going to take on the flower girl duties, wearing a longer gown won’t be a problem.

Neckline Matters

No matter what style of a flower girl dress your wedding calls for, choose a frock with straps (or sleeves) and a high neckline. First, this will prevent all the embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions. Secondly, it’s important to pick a dress befitting your flower girl’s age. On top of that, your little darling will feel comfortable while being busy with her flower girl duties or just fooling around with other flower girls.

Size: Think Ahead of Time

Because flower girls are often quite young, they can literally sprout up between the time you buy the dress and the wedding day, but there’s no need to panic – you have two ways-out at your disposal! Depending on the age of your flower girl-to-be and your timings, you can order a size or two up from what she’s wearing now. Alternatively, in case you don’t want the risk, purchase the dress as close to the wedding date as possible. Either way, we are always ready to provide you with the needed size.

Keep Seasons in Mind

Though often understated, the season and weather always play a crucial role in deciding on your flower girl’s style. If you’re tying the knot in late spring or summer, then, you may want to make sure that your darling isn’t wearing something with long sleeves. In case your big day falls on winter or fall, along with choosing a long-sleeved attire, you may want to consider a shoulder wrap – luckily, we’ve got you covered with plenty of these. Also, we strongly recommend you get a pair of tights that go with the dress (hint: if you’ve chosen a white dress, make sure that your flower girl’s tights are also white, not ivory).
