Color: When choosing the color of your little flower girl’s dress, you also want to maintain the colors in the wedding. If you choose to go with having her dress in a miniature version of the bride’s gown, but you still want some color in it, you can incorporate some of the color scheme by putting pretty ribbons and bows in her hair or maybe some small flowers pinned on her dress. You could also just use a colored floral accent thatwill match the color in the bridesmaid dresses.
Length: There are two different lengths that you should consider when picking your flower girl dress, floor-length and tea-length. If you choose tea-length, make sure the socks or tights that you choose to go with it are appropriate for the style of the dress you choose. If you decide to go with floor-length, make sure that your flower girl will not trip over it. You do not want your beautiful little flower girl to fall and get embarrassed in front of everybody. In my opinion, tea-length is probably your best choice.
Comfort: It does not matter how young or old your flower girl is, you still want her to be comfortable in her dress. Little girls love dressing up for special occasions and they should. Even though we are talking about flower girl dresses, you need to keep in mind that you will have to pick out a matching pair of shoes that she can wear for a long period of time and not start whining. It is recommended you buy her flats that are made of patent leather. As you may know, shoes can also be dyed to match the color scheme of your wedding party.
Season: The weather and time of year will play a big part in the style of the flower girl dress you pick out. If you are getting married in the summer or spring, then you want to make sure you do not get something that has long sleeves as she will be very hot and may tend to complain more. If your wedding is going to be in the winter or fall, you don’t want to pick a dress that has short sleeves as she will get cold.You also want to pick your flower girl dress in accordance with what colors are for the season, just as you did when you set your wedding date.
