It doesn’t always work this way, but sometimes it is the little dress that sets the tone of the wedding. Which little dress can set the theme of the event?
The flower girl dress, of course!
The little princess dressed in her soft white ballet style dress and matching ballet flats will float down the aisle stealing hearts as she goes, sprinkling baby pink petals up and down the aisle.
Her tiny dress is tied at the waist with a pink satin bow and the skirt is covered with a full length double layer of tulle and near it’s hem you can see dozens of tiny rose buds nestled inside the tulle. Mum has curled her golden locks into ringlets and pinned baby rose buds in her daughter’s hair. The bride will be competing with this little one for attention!
Giggly girls in satin gowns are in fashion these days. These lovely flower girl dresses are made to match the big girls, also known as the bridesmaids. Traditional little bodice with straps and A-line skirts come in every color that your bridesmaids dresses do. Pair these sweet things with tiny bejeweled sandals and satin headbands and your little flower girl is ready for the big day.
Some brides are pairing these little satin numbers with opposite color waist bows. For example, if a bride’s theme is green, then she might pair a lime green gown with a kelly green waist bow. Whatever colors are chosen, the little darling is sure to look amazing.
Ready for something ultra trendy? How about a flower girl dress that is less traditional, and more Toddlers and Tiara’s? Imagine a floor length gown with spaghetti straps and a layered ruffle skirt. The bride’s theme is a racy midnight wedding and all the girls will be wearing black.
The little doll will wear her grown up black flower girl dress and her hair will be styled in loose, big girl waves. She will be given a tiny rhinestone necklace, earrings and bracelet to complete this chic look.
Peasant style flower girl dresses are on the scene as well. Creamy peasant sleeved baby doll dresses with either a drop waist or an empire waist are extraordinary on the tiny tots. Imagine a trio of little angels in these chiffon frocks in muted colors of pearl gray, sage green, ivory cream, petal pink, icy blue and lavender lace. Pair them with small silky tights, ballet flats and pearl necklaces and the triplets will turn every head in the church!
Making the flower girl into a miniature bride is popular in wedding trends this year. Picture the little sweetie of a flower girl dressed in a matching bridal gown. Perhaps a little white mermaid style dress that flows as lovely the brides while she toddles down the aisle tossing fistfuls of colored rose petals. Top her golden brown tresses with a tiara and a bridal veil.
This cherub will melt hearts throughout the day’s festivities. Another option other than the exact replica of the bridal dress is to have a flower girl dress made in the same fabric as the bridal gown, but in a more traditional girl’s dress.
Also trending in flower girl dresses, are white silk ball gowns for the younger set. Imagine the wedding of the year complete with hundreds of white glowing candles and armloads of fresh roses in crimson. The lights are set low and romantic and the lovely bridesmaids dressed in silken red gowns are set to walk the bridal aisle with smiles and stunning shoes.
But first, the the little precious appears in her flower girl dress and everyone is delighted! Her tiny white ball gown has a fitted bodice and thin straps made of red silk to match the wedding color. As the flower girl’s smile turns heads and her chubby hands fling crimson petals down the aisle runner, we see that this sweet kitten’s floor length gown is also trimmed in about eight inches of matching red silk.
Theme weddings are still popular in our modern times as brides everywhere are choosing garden parties, goth, movie and comic book style weddings. Included in their plans are themed flower girl dresses for the lucky little ladies who will toss the petals! Adorable bumble bee suits, dog collars and super girl outfits are chosen for the memorable day of wedded bliss.
Whether one chooses a ballet style dress, a peasant sleeved gown, a miniature bridal ensemble or a grown up cocktail frock for her flower girl dresses, she is sure to be pleased with her choice on her amazing day.
