Finding the Perfect Flower Girl Dresses

May 14, 2008
Love is in bloom and you are planning your wedding! The one subject you will find the least help and information on is picking your flower girl dresses. Do you want white or ivory flower girl dresses? Pink or a combination of colors?

Which styles do you choose?

There are several very "standard" flower girl dress styles that are always appropriate:

- Matching the bride's maids; this is best for older girls who are acting as Jr. Bride's Maids and you will have to order them at the same time to match well;

- Shop from store to store for weeks and likely dragging them (and their parents) with you before the wedding but long after the bride's maids dresses have come;

- Settle for whatever is available at the last minute;

- Shop on line, make up your mind and send a message to each family telling them which style and color to order and that they need to get them ordered now;

- Shop on line, make up your mind and order them yourself to be sure that the right style and colors get ordered and that they actually DO get ordered in plenty of time.

What style flower girl dresses are there?

The flower-petal filled dress. This is a dress with a sheer skirt that is "filled" with flower petals in the color of your choice. These dresses often come with flower pins for the waistline to coordinate. One very special thing to consider is that you can EASILY change the color of the petals in the skirt by exchanging them for your own unique colors. Any florist can make up a pin for the sash for you, too. Consider combining colors for a really rich, unique look!

The flower-petal filled dress - perfect for tiny flower girls. The petals in the layers of the dress (they often come with a pin-on flower or two, too) reflect the colors of your wedding party on a white or ivory dress (some come in black, too). Get creative by adding other colors to the petals in the skirt to make it perfect for your own unique wedding!

- The ballgown - which often has a "pick up skirt" to reflect this popular trend in bridal gowns. With or without the pick up effect, this dress has a fitted bodice and full, frothy skirt similar to "Cinderella".

We hope this helps you prepare for your perfect wedding day!
