Finding the perfect dress for your flower girl is just as hard as finding your own wedding dress. You have to walk a delicate balance of being cute but not chintzy, beautiful, but not brash. Similar to your bridesmaids, you want to select a dress that the little girl can wear again, as some dresses can be an investment.
Here are some cute ideas:
I love these dresses by Watters, as they deviate from the typical overly tulled white dress that most little girls drown in and allow you to express her personality and the personality of your event with these fun dresses. By incorporating color, you increase the probability of your little friend to wear it again.
If you are looking for an ivory or white flower girl dress, but want to kick it up with more style, look for adornments and embellishments, like these (clockwise Us Angels, David’s Bridal and Jessica Lyn for Emerald Bridal). Simple additions like a beaded bodice or waistband, ribbons and flowers are a good way to help her stand out and feel like a princess.
If you are looking for something that is gentile and whimsical, but offers a simple elegance for your flower girl, then these dresses by Joan Calabrese for Mon Cheri, Us Angels, Pink Princess and Winnie Couture should appeal for you. (How adorable is the last little girl with the wreath in her hair!) Their clean lines and light textures do not add a lot of fuss, but instead enhance delicate details. These would be perfect to wear again, especially for holidays such as Easter or Mother’s Day.
