Putting The Fun Into Flower Girl DressesCongratulations, you’re finally getting married after those long months of waiting for the date to arrive! You’ve planned, dreamt, and stressed over so many details, and now the day is closing in! Choosing wedding dresses is stressful enough, but are you prepared to choose flower girl dresses for the little ones attending your special day?
Choosing Flower Girl DressesThey say, “Never work with children and animals,” And the effort of trying to decide which kinds of flower girl dresses are going to be appropriate could be a major source of stress. What will suit them? Do they fit my wedding theme or colors? Will they be comfortable? However choosing flower girl dresses can actually be good fun, as you have many more options than adult dresses. The key here is cuteness. You’ll want your flower girls to make people’s hearts melt when they see them proudly taking part in your wedding. Your mom will be a valuable ally in making the decision, and by sharing this responsibility you will halve your stress.
Just be sure that you follow these three simple rules: 1. Choose a style that matches your wedding colors. If your bridesmaids are wearing yellow (a good color for summer weddings), then echo it in your flower girls dresses, but perhaps in a different shade. 2. Make sure that the style is comfortable. Your maids will be pretty tolerant, but kids could become quite cranky if they are forced to squeeze into a flower girl dress that’s not comfortable. Try simple A-line styles, and spaghetti straps or high necklines to keep the dress securely in place. 3. Add accessories & themes for extra cuteness. Think tiaras, armbands, ribbons in hair (matching colors of course), bracelets, or necklaces will help your flower girls to stand out and look really pretty. All of these can be bought cheaply if you’re looking at costume wedding jewelry. If you’re having a themed wedding, such as a rustic outdoor affair, why not dress your flower girls in costume, such as ‘mini cowgirls’ in plaid shirts, or simple dresses and little cowgirl boots. How cute would that be?
