Planning a wedding isn’t easy as you have lots of things to do. One of them is to pick the right dresses for your flower girls. If you’re having a hard time choosing the perfect outfit for your flower girls, here’s a quick guide to help you.

Theme

Of course, you want things to be uniformly based on your wedding’s theme. And your flower girls’ gown is included too. So, before anything else, one of the things you should consider is your theme.

Make sure that the color of your favorite princess’ gown matches your theme. You may also match it with your bridesmaids’ gowns. If you want to play it safe, you can just go with a white gown, making her look like a little bride that will make your entourage look more adorable. It’s also a safe choice, especially if you’re going for a formal theme.

Style

Your favorite princess’ gown’s style should also be appropriate not only for your wedding’s theme but for their age as well. If your bridesmaids, for instance, are going for a revealing style of gowns, then you might want to choose a different style for your flower girl.

Usually, a square neckline would be your safest bet. It’s not too conservative and it’s not too revealing for a kid as well. You may also go for gowns with sleeves. But, make sure that it’s comfortable enough for your favorite princess.

Season

Kids’ immune systems aren’t as efficient as adults’. This is because their body is still building up its defenses against viruses when they’re exposed to them. Thus, they easily get sick.

For that reason, you should also consider the season when you’re choosing a gown for your flower girl. According to www.pegeen.com/, she should wear an attire that works with the season when your wedding will be held. This way, she won’t feel too cold or too hot when wearing their dress.

If your wedding will take place during the warmer months, then, short sleeves and open-toed shoes would be your best bet, so she will stay feeling fresh throughout the day. But, if you chose to tie the knot during the colder months, especially in winter, make sure that you add tights or sweaters to her ensemble. This way, she’ll stay comfortable even if it’s freezing outside.

Size

Some kids grow up fast – literally. Because of that, buying a dress that exactly fits them might not be an ideal thing to do, especially if you’re a year or so away from your special day.

If you’re already securing your favorite princess’ dress long before your wedding day, make sure to leave allowances for their dress’ size. This is because, unlike adults, you can’t find a perfect fit for children because they are still growing – and some of them may grow fast.

However, oversized dresses may also not look good on her. What you can do, though, is to go one size up instead in case she grows into it. You can also prioritize her dress less than other details of your wedding. This way, you can easily choose the best one for her size better and the dress won’t look too frumpy on her.

Fabric

While your flower girl’s dress should match your wedding aesthetic, you should still consider the fabric used on her dress. This is because not all fabrics are created equal. Some can be stiff, too heavy, or itchy for kids. And if you got them the wrong fabric, they will not feel comfortable in it. That said, it is ideal to stay away from fabrics that are itchy, heavy, or too stiff. Instead, choose something that can resist rips and wrinkles like satin, chiffon, and organza. 

Cost

While it is up to you what you want your flower girl to wear, you should be mindful of the dress’s cost too, especially if the flower girl’s parents will pay for it. Out of courtesy, it would be better if you stay away from anything that’s too expensive. Even if you’re the one paying for it, well, it’s still ideal to not splurge on your flower girl’s dress. After all, she will be wearing it once and she’ll grow out of it over time and won’t be able to wear it anymore.

Weddings are once in a lifetime experience. So, take your time in ensuring that the details of your wedding fit your needs and wants. But don’t forget the comfort of your guests and entourage too, including your flower girl.
