A lot of times, the flower girl is dressed in a similar version of the bride’s dress, but any dress that ties into the look of the wedding will be just as sweet. Here are some helpful tips for selecting the perfect dress for your beautiful flower girl:
#1 - Take notes on your flower girl’s age, height, physical appearance, and shoe size. This is important because you do not want to select a dress that is too small, too large, uncomfortable, or unbecoming for the occasion.
#2 - Keep the season in mind when you’re selecting her dress. You do not want her to be uncomfortable during your ceremony, reception and pictures. If your wedding is planned during the summer, consider a lighter, breathable fabric for her dress so she doesn’t get too hot. If planned during a colder season, make sure she is dressed appropriately so she doesn’t get too cold.
#3 - Select a dress that is easy for your flower girl to walk in without tripping or getting caught up in the fabric.
#4 - Pick a dress that is made of durable material to avoid tearing, staining, or wrinkling. Chances are, your flower girl will run around in her dress the entire day. You want it to stand up to the job.
#5 - Decide whether you want to go more traditional and have her dressed similar to you, or if you’d rather her stand out in a dress iof a different color within your wedding theme. If you choose to go with the mini-bride look, keep in mind that you don’t want her to be so bridal that it takes away from the grandeur of your dress.
#6 - Avoid extreme designs and severe color or pattern contrasts. You don’t want the dress to clash so much in style, color, or design that it becomes distracting and takes away from the cohesive look of the wedding.
