Tips For Choosing Great Flower Girl Dresses
If you’re planning a wedding, you might be tempted to buy a nice white dress for your florist and have her wear a bouquet to match yours. After all, she’s just a kid, right? And if she looks beautiful, the guests will be pleasantly pleased.
Well, she’s a little more than that. First, let’s take a quick look at the flower girl tradition. Since the Middle Ages, flower girls have been entrusted with a special task: They were to walk down the wedding aisle in front of the bride and groom and scatter grain (not flowers) to pave the way for a new beginning, fertility, and happiness in marriage.
Today’s florists often wear rose petals, and although they are not considered to have special powers to enable the new couple to have a harmonious relationship, they tend to set the tone for a wedding. Remember the last wedding you attended. If the flower girls showed up in formal dark dresses, you quickly understood that the wedding would have a formal tone. If, on the other hand, they came out in fluffy flower girl dresses with roses tied in their hair, you knew you would have a more whimsical wedding.
In other words, flower girls are usually the first part of the wedding party to come down to the island, so they will make a strong first impression on your guests.
How will you dress your flower girls?
Here are some dress ideas for the flower girls on the most popular wedding themes:
The Cinderella wedding theme
If you are planning a theme for Cinderella’s wedding, then extravagance and beauty should be part of everything. And since your flower girls will be the first to appear, they should be brave enough to set the tone. For this theme you should have more than one florist – three or four would be ideal – and then dress them up spectacularly. Choose white frilly dresses with huge satin skirts and bows. You can color some of your wedding colors by adding fresh pale pink, yellow or blue flowers to your hair. You should also wear satin ballerina slippers. Have them carry decorated baskets to match their dresses and throw tons of soft rose petals around the island.
The Beach Wedding Theme
Depending on the type of beach wedding you want, you will have different dress options for the flower girls. If you’re looking for a romantic beach wedding, put your flower girls in soft pastel or white tones and wear lots of fresh flowers, both in your hair and for throwing. Flower girls’ wedding dresses can be shorter than a formal wedding dress, and the right sandals would set the tone. Instead of a basket, they could carry a pastel-colored beach bucket filled to the brim with wildflowers to be scattered all over the island.
If you have a wedding planned on the most vibrant and colorful beach, why not have fun with the flower girls’ dresses? If you wear the typical beach dresses that match your wedding décor, your guests will immediately know that your wedding will be fun and adventurous.
Imagine a black and white wedding, with wingtip shoes and ostrich feathers. That’s the idea behind the 1920s wedding theme, and as you can imagine, a beautiful flower girl dress with frills won’t fit. In this kind of daring wedding, you have to be imaginative with them. Why don’t you dress your flower girls in white satin lapel girls’ dresses with ribbons around the hair and pearls at the hem? With this kind of dress, you’re sure to hear an “Ooh” and an “Ahs” from the crowd.
Garden party wedding
If you dream of an outdoor wedding surrounded by blooming flowers and ivy-covered arches, your florist dresses should have a completely different style. White, cream, or light pastel linen would be an ideal choice. A beautiful, soft cotton dress with a muted floral pattern tied with a large solid satin bow in the back would also be attractive. Add satin lace sandals and lots of colorful tulips and your guests will probably remember your flower girls for a long time to come.
