Aside from the bride, there’s no doubt who the most fussed-after lady is
on the wedding day – it’s the flower girl! These gorgeous dresses from designers like Alfred Angelo and
Tiffany Princess can make the flower girl at your wedding look like the perfect little angel she knows
how to be!
WHAT TO LOOK FOR
When it comes to selecting flower
girl dresses, it’s important to look for a few key elements. How well does the flower girl’s outfit match
the bridesmaids and wedding dresses? Are they going to be the same color, or will there be contrast between
them? What features will the flower girl’s dress contain? Are you looking for a formal dress, or something
more playful she can wear on other occasions? Many flower girls will love their dress for years to come,
keeping it as a memory of their role in your special day – so try to give them something extra special
SASHES AND SKIRTS
Nothing makes a little girl feel
more like a princess than a ball gown silhouette, and many of these flower girl dresses show off echoes
of the same trends gracing wedding and bridesmaids dresses today. There are v necks, halter straps, spaghetti
strap looks and more! Some of the gowns are as spectacular as the versions for other women in the bridal
party; your sweet niece, sister, cousin or daughter will look like a star as she precedes you down the
FULL LENGTH OR TEA LENGTH?
Although a full length ball
gown may be your goal, think about the personality of the little girl you’ve chosen to be part of your
big day. Will she be excitable and eager to run around and visit with the guests on the day of the wedding?
Or will she be quiet and shy, happy to sit quietly in her place? For the latter, full length gowns can
add to the flower girl’s feeling of being all grown up, while girls who want to visit with other guests
and play with other children might be better served by a tea-length dress.
HANDLE THE BIG DAY
When it comes to the wedding day, remember that it’s important
to set aside plenty of time for doing the flower girl’s hair, makeup and styling – in addition to getting
her into and comfortable with her dress. It’s a good idea to enlist one member of the wedding party,
or a close family member or friend, to supervise the flower girl’s preparations. Hair styles and makeup
can add a new layer of sophistication as a little girl walks down the aisle, but it’s easy to make a
hair style messy and makeup can smudge, so it’s important someone be prepared to make last minute fixes
and keep things under control.
ACCESSORIZING YOUR FLOWER GIRL
matter what kind of flower girl dresses you want for your wedding, their central accessories remain the
same – the beautiful, bright flowers that she carries with her as she leads the wedding party down the
aisle. Pick your flower girl’s dress to compliment not just the look of the wedding, but the flowers
themselves! Think about the flowers you’ve chosen to represent your wedding day, and make sure that the
flower girl has both a floral arrangement that matches or compliments her dress, and a basket or bouquet
in which to carry them. When it comes to shoes, opt for flats. Even if young girls think they want to
try on heels, it’s better that they make their way safely down the aisle in a moment that’s sure to be
tense for everyone. In cooler weather, consider purchasing an additional small jacket to help keep flower
WHERE’S YOUR HAIR?
Give careful thought to how
you want your flower girl’s hair to be styled, and remember that young children are rarely as patient
as adults about sitting while intricate styles are worked into their hair. For girls with longer hair,
if they’re willing to sit still, curls can be a fun way to glamorize their looks. Those flower girls
with shorter hair might enjoy getting cute barrettes or sparkling clips placed into their hair to help
bring added glitter into their day. When using special clips and other hair adornments and fascinators,
make sure that they are solidly attached and unlikely to break loose as the flower girl makes her way
up the aisle in her beautiful flower girl dress.
