- Make sure they are age appropriate
Kids will be more comfortable in clothes which are appropriate for their age. A toddler may not feel quite comfortable in a huge ball wedding gown and the same goes for a gown that is showing off too much skin.
- Consider what the kids want
Some flower girls also have their own individual styles and personality so make sure you ask them about what dresses they’ll love. If the bridesmaids dresses all have a different style, you can have flowergirls wear mismatched dresses too.
- Be mindful of the weather
Unlike adults, kids cannot freeze and shine so remember this when choosing flowergirls dresses. There’s nothing worse than a child who is trying to brace the cold in a sleeveless gown or a hot and miserable child wearing a long sleeved ball gown.
- Choose flowergirls dresses suitable for the venue
When choosing the right dresses for your flowergirls, consider the venue. If the wedding is to be held in a hot and sunny weather then consider choosing lighter fabrics and teal length dresses.
- Wrinkle factor and quality
Kids don’t stay still and so don’t expect their dresses to remain perfectly straightened out during the event. The best way to ensure the little girls stay neat and cute is to select a fabric that doesn’t easily wrinkle. Also make sure the fabric is tough so that it doesn’t easily get ripped. Fabrics like velvet and silk are not appropriate for children’s wedding clothes because they can easily tear and wrinkle.
- Choose the right color
You can always choose flower girl dresses that complement your wedding colors. If you want white dresses you can easily incorporate the wedding colors in it by adding pretty ribbons and bows on the dress. You can even choose a small flower and pin it on their dresses to match the bridesmaids’ dresses.
- Choose the appropriate length
Flower girl dresses should only be in two lengths- tea length and floor length. Tea length dresses are slightly shorter so make sure you pair them up with cute tights or socks depending on the style you choose. Floor length dresses shouldn’t be too long so make sure the little girl doesn’t trip over it.
