Flower Girls

Choosing flower girl dresses can be harder than it seems. Many times, brides choose dresses too similar to the bridesmaids dresses, and the dress ends up looking inappropriate for a child. Here are some really cute flower girl dresses that are age appropriate.

Choose a dress with a high neckline or thick straps. Strapless dresses and thin strap dresses are too mature for the flower girl (unless of course she is older).

A-line dresses are classic and look perfect for a young flower girl. Plus she gets to feel like a princess in her miniature gown. If it is a casual wedding shorten the length for a less formal look.

Ribbons, bows, and flower details are perfect for the flower girl. I would stay away from anything too flashy like sequins or rhinestones. A flower girl should look cute and sweet.

When accessorizing make sure to choose a comfortable and appropriate shoe such as the one seen here. A flat sandal or bootie is perfect. Headbands also look adorable as headpieces.

For summer or spring weddings you can opt for a shorter length. Make sure the length still falls below the knee.

Make sure to keep the hair and makeup age appropriate. If you choose to use makeup, only use foundation to even the skin, light blush, and a natural lip gloss. This will give her a picture perfect look without really seeing any makeup. Do not use eyeshadow, lipstick, eyeliner, or mascara.
