Flower Girl Fashion

Your flower girls are just as important as your bridesmaids, so make sure to pick the right dresses as well as accessories and a fabulous flower basket!

Choose the Style

From a simple A-line dress to a mini ball gown with intricate embellishments, your flower girl dress style can be as elaborate as you like. Little girls usually like to look similar to the bride, so it is always a good idea to choose a design that resembles your wedding dress. And if you want to coordinate flower girl outfits with the rest of the bridal party, you can choose a design that corresponds with the bridesmaid dresses.

Don’t forget that little ladies also usually adore embellishments, so make sure to pick frocks that include some bling or flower appliques. Flower girl fashion trends for 2016 are fun and they include sequins, vibrant colours, oversized floral appliques and mini bridal jackets to match the dresses. If you want to keep it simple, just opt for a fluttery dress with a big tulle skirt styled with a big bow and the girls will be happy looking like little ballerinas. It is important that they feel comfortable in their outfits as well, so the skirts shouldn’t be too long and the fabrics should be appropriate for the season.

Pick a Colour

From bridal whites and ivories to soft, pastel shades and vibrant hues, your flower girls can wear virtually any colour. If you want to be on the safe side, choose a dress in the shade of your wedding gown and accessorise it with a sash that matches the colour you have picked for the bridesmaid dresses. However, if you are wearing a traditional ivory gown and your bridesmaids are in blush pink or sky blue, your flower girls will look adorable wearing a matching pastel hue! Another way to coordinate colours is to match the flower girl dresses with wedding bouquets, and you can even pick fabrics with floral prints if you think they will fit into your overall wedding theme. Brides who are tying the knot on Valentine’s Day can consider choosing red for their flower girls.

Accessorise it

The key accessory for every flower girl is, of course, the flower basket, but you should also add a few other details to make them look even cuter. An effective hair accessory is a must, and it can be anything from a simple hair pin to a sparkly crown. A flower girl can never have too many flowers, so a flower crown is also an option, especially if you are planning a bohemian-style destination wedding and wearing one too. Since girls love jewellery, you can purchase small gifts such as bracelets, earrings and necklaces for your flower girls and surprise them on the day of the wedding. Pick items that match their outfits so they can wear them immediately.
