Picking the flower girl dress out for the flower girl is just as important as picking your own. You need to pick a dress that will look perfect on her and complement the theme of your wedding. This makes the flower girl dress hunt a little challenging. Here are tips to help you find the perfect dress for the girl:
1. Involve Her Parents
In most cases, the parents of the little girl will pay for the flower girl dress. This means they should be involved in the search. Although you may have the color or the design. The parents can step in to help her find the right size and to consider the prices. You can all go to the flower girl dresses shop to help one another find the perfect dress for her. The parents will help in picking a dress that she will wear long after the wedding. Remember that shopping for her dress should come after you have already bought your dress. This is to ensure that you get the right color, fabric and design to match with your wedding gown and theme.
2. Do Not Buy Her Dress Too Soon
Kids grow very fast. Get her dress only a few days to the wedding. If you buy it before, it might not fit her well. If you insist on getting her dress early, add a few inches to the dress measurements. In case it is big for her, you can make a few adjustments so that it can fit her. If it gets too tight there is not much that can be done.
3. Not Too Expensive
Make a budget for the flower girl dress and stick to it. There so many beautiful but cheap flower girl dresses both online and on the bridal stores. Do not overburden her parents by picking a very expensive dress for her. Remember she will need other things such as the shoes and other accessories. You need to consider the costs of all these things and pick something affordable.
4. Let Her Fit the Dress
If you can go with her to the bridal shop, let her try on the dresses to find one that fits well. Also, remember that her dress does not have to fit perfectly like the bridesmaids. This is because she is growing older and bigger and she will use the dress as she grows. If you cannot go together, get all her measurements right and use them to shop for her dress.
5. Consider the Length of the Dress
If the flower girl is younger, consider buying a not too long dress. It should not touch her feet. Since she is learning to walk, she might get tangled and fall. But for the older flower girls, you can consider long dress. They can walk well and will look beautiful on a floor length dress if it is in line with the theme of the wedding.
With these tips, finding the perfect dress for your flower girls should not be hectic. Let the girls parents help you. Above all, ensure she is comfortable and happy with the dress.
