Every bride should have the most special day of their life on their wedding day and it is no different with their little flower girls. There is such a huge choice of flower girl dresses that it is often very difficult to make the right choice. At this exciting time it is so important to get the perfect flower girl dress which is both beautiful and elegant in its own right as well as fitting in well with the bridal dress itself.
Parents are increasingly looking online to help source their flower girl outfits. It is important to not only find the right style of dress but also fabric, colour and length. If you get it just right you should be able to find a dress which has the cornerstone look for both casual and formal wear meaning the flower girl dress will look just right for the wedding but also be useable on various other occasions throughout the year.
There are many styles which can go straight from the wedding day to evening when it comes to flowergirl dresses. Once really good idea is to accessorise the dress and add a bag, viking armor hoodie and even a faux fur shrug…this would look perfect for the wedding itself but be removed in the evening for a more casual look.
The fabric choice is huge with flower girl dresses coming in silk, satin, tafetta and dupioni silk too. A flower corsage can complete the look and also be removed for more informal wear on another occasion. Of course the dress will have to fit the wedding theme and so colour and style can be even more important. Flower girl dresses traditionally come in an ivory or cream but these can be brightened up with contrast colour sashes or you could go for a contrast colour dress in say turquoise, red or pink. There is also a vast choice of floral dresses on the market as well just now.
One of the most frustrating things about flower girl dresses is the fact that you have to purchase a dress just for this one off occasion. This can be very pricey and the dress only be worn for a short time. If this is a problem look for a dual purpose dress….one which is made of washable material but can also be dressed up for a special day, then be worn for other important occasions and even turned into a fancy dress costume once it has been used.
