Every wedding day is a special day, and many girls, even on their own wedding night, remember the first time they were able to participate in a wedding as a flower girl. Flower girls are usually between the ages of 3 and 8 years old, and are tasked with the processional throwing of flower petals before the bride walks down the aisle.

The flower girl’s dress is as large a piece of the wedding experience as any. There are many factors that go into settling on a flower girl dress. Some of the most common of these include:

  • The Wedding Motif
    • Weddings are all about color palettes, themes, and coordination. From the dishes, to the candles, to the centerpieces, everything is meticulously chosen and designed to give the wedding goer an experience. A flower girl dress can add to this as well.
  • What The Rest of the Wedding Party Will Wear
    • Even if you are picking out a toddler’s flower dress separate from the wedding party, it’s always good to check with the aesthetic and uniformity of the bridesmaids’ dresses as well as the bride. A flower girl is part of procession, but it is not customary for the flower girl to wear the exact same dress as the bridesmaids.
  • What The Bride/Groom/Wedding Planner Says
    • The first and foremost voice to consult with on style should be the couple getting married, and whatever their planning committee (however large or small) deems appropriate and in keeping with their desired aesthetic.
  • Comfortability
    • Your little girl will most likely be wearing whatever dress you decide from flower girl dresses on for the better part of a day, often into the reception and the night that follows the ceremony. Finding a comfortable dress that is easy and fun to wear is important.
  • Price Range/Budget
    • Of course you’ll want to take into account price range and expense when researching options. Fortunately, there are some really great affordable options when it comes to toddler flower girl dresses. These dresses usually run between $50 and $150, but they can be as expensive as $2,000, depending upon your budget.
  • There Are Countless Options
    • The options for flower girls dresses are endless. Some have sweep trains, some have court trains. They can be asymmetrical, floor-length, ankle-length, or tea-length. The silhouette can take a form of an A-line or an empire outline. Some have lace, and some have long sleeves. Some have bows, some are sleeveless, and some can be almost as fancy as a ball gown. Perhaps the only similarity is most flower girl dresses may come in a variety of colors.

The right flower girl dress can be a great way to make your little flower really feel like an important part of the wedding party. Investigating the different lengths, cuts, and styles relative to the bride’s own look, as well as the design and aesthetic of the wedding party are important parts of the process of finding the perfect dress.
