Flower Girl Dresses

Choosing the Perfect Flower Girl Dress

Jan 10, 2014

Many large weddings, particularly those here in the south, have flower girls as part of the bridal party. Including the youngest member of your family or your fiancé’s family is a charming way to remember your special day. Often, flower girls are dressed as mini versions of the bride, in a white or ivory dress, with a contrasting sash that matches the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses.

Here at Dimitra Designs, we can help you find the ideal flower girl dress for your wedding, and ensure that both you and the youngest member of your bridal party will look beautiful and be happy. When choosing a flower girl dress, make sure that you stay with the style of the wedding. If you have a formal wedding, your flower girl’s dress also needs to be formal. In addition to keeping with your color theme, make sure the dress you choose is not too long, is comfortable and wrinkle-resistant.

Remember that little girls do not stay put very long and you want to keep her looking nice as long as possible. Make sure that both your flower girl and her parents like the dress, as this little detail will go a long way on your wedding day.


Flower Girls: Need To Know Tips

Dec 4, 2009

6615One of our favorite parts of a wedding (besides the bride) are the adorable flower girls. Everyone “oohs” and “aahs” the flower girl as she walks down the isle in her beautiful little dress. Of course, children are unpredictable and may become easily stressed with all of the hustle and bustle of the wedding day. If you’re having a flower girl in your wedding, the following tips should help both you and her have a wonderful day you’ll always cherish!

  • Flower girls should attend the rehearsal and as many bridal functions as possible. The more time they spend with the ladies of the wedding party, the more comfortable they’ll feel on the big day.

  • Younger flower girls should have the option of sitting with their families during the ceremony.

  • If she’s old enough, let her come along and try on flower girl dresses, and have a say in her look for the big day. It will be a fun bonding experience for you both.

  • Avoid sugar the day of the ceremony. If she gets hyper, she might have a hard time walking down the isle. If she crashes, she might not be able to go at all!

  • Get some games and toys for the day of so she can entertain herself during the slow periods of the day.

And the most important thing to remember is – things don’t always go as planned. If your flower girl gets scared or sick or can’t walk down the isle for any reason, that’s ok. You have to expect the unexpected with children and let her know how much you love her and how special it is to have her with you on your big day, no matter the role she ends up playing!
