Flower girl dresses


Bridal wear has never been more glamorous, ladylike or beautiful than with the new lines of dresses for the youngest members of the bridal party: Flower girl dresses! Flower girl dresses are magical. Flower dresses are fairytale-like. Flower girl dresses are every little girl's dream-come-true! Flower girl dresses come in a wide range of modish styles, from formal to casual, Victorian to contemporary, long to short, sleeveless to full-length sleeve, satin to cotton, white to colorful, and from pretty a-lines to poofy ball gowns.

A flower girl is usually a young girl between the ages of 3 and 8 who has a special connection to the bride and groom. She walks down the aisle before the maid of honor or bridesmaids with a basket of flowers, scattering them on the aisle. Traditionally, flower girl dresses are white in a mini-version of the bride's dress, or flower girl dresses can be chosen in a color and style to match the bridesmaid's dresses or in a look that keeps the overall color scheme in mind. Contemporarily, however, flower girl dresses need not follow any ground rules or wedding style guidelines. Today's flower girl dresses have a look all of their own - from young and cutesy to grown-up and sophisticated; from traditional fanfare to up-to-the-minute, en vogue and trendy.

Who besides the bride gets as much attention as the flower girl in her flower girl dress? And if you are can't seem to choose between several flower girl candidates, why not have two or even three flower girls? It will add to their confidence, increase the cuteness quotient, and make the flower girl dress spectacle even more spectacular! Flower girl dresses are especially styled for children, rather than for a teen or adult. However, since some flower girl dresses are quite sophisticated while other flower dresses have a young look, be sure to select age-appropriate flower girl dresses for your little girl.

On the day she dons her fabulous flower girl dress, seat the flower girl's parents by the aisle, near the front so that she can see them when she walks down the aisle and during the ceremony itself. Ask a bridesmaid to be the flower girl's "buddy", and make sure the flower girl uses the restroom before the ceremony! As for flower girl dresses, it is important to keep styles comfortable and fabrics non-scratchy. Make sure flower girl dresses are not too long, so that flower girls won't be pulling at their dresses or tripping down the aisle. And, if your flower girl doesn't like dresses, choose a pants outfit with the same level of formality as the bridesmaid dresses!
