Flower girls are also important part of a wedding ceremony after having chosen a date, dress, place, time and wedding party. Here are some helpful flower girl tips that you should consider: formality, style, comfort, color, season, length, quality and budget.
The time of the day and location of the ceremony will most likely affect the formality of the flower girl dress. The most formal fabrics are satins, silks, chiffons, and organza. The most important to keep in mind is to have the dress that work with the theme and style of the wedding.
The style of the flower girl dress can also carry through beautifully to the wedding theme and ceremony. It will attract many people's eye as the flower girl gently tossing the flower petals in front of the bride. Therefore, choose a flower girl dress to match bridesmaids' color, style, or length or even make a special little version of bridesmaids dress or bride dress.
As flower girls are very young children, between 4 to 7 years old, be sure she actually likes the dress and is excited to wear it. Forcing a child to wear a costume not comfortable or simply not liked is never a good idea. Try not to have them wear a tight shoe/ high-heel or itch/scratchy dress because if they are uncomfortable, most likely you or your guest will be too.
The traditional dress color for flower girl is white, usually along with the flower, sash and ribbons. The color of the flower girl dress should harmonize with bridesmaids dresses as well as the theme color of the wedding. Very often there is an attempt to match exactly the bridal's gown shade but you can just add cute accessories such as ribbons, tiaras, baskets, and colored floral accent to express the feeling and mood of the bride and bridesmaids. Make sure that if there is going to be quite a few flower girls we recommend that you order the dresses together to guarantee same color shade if you desired.
The weather and the time of the year affect greatly on choosing the style of the flower girl dress. If your wedding date is on spring/summer, short sleeve dress or T-length dress would be the best choice and if it's on fall/winter; long sleeve or long dress style would suit the best for your flower girl. Also, take a consideration of colors and the fabrics of the season and most importantly, comfort of your flower girl.
Yes, the length is another factor you should consider when choosing a flower girl dress. The length is either floor-length or T- length. If you are going for a long dress, be sure that your flower girl does not trip over. Please take a consider of your girls' age and height when choosing a length of the dress. We would recommend you to compare your girl's height and length (shoulder to hem) to the sizing chart to get the best fit!
Choose a fabric that is not easily wrinkled. As a young age, flower girls are most likely to play and wonder around. Thus choose a fabric that makes your flower girl stay neat and pretty.
Yes, the money is a big issue and having a good wedding plan can save you much money. Buying your flower girl dresses online can be cheaper than in bridal shop. There are many dresses; bridesmaids dresses, flower girl dresses, communion dresses and etc online for an affordable price but make sure you do your research before making your final decision!
