Shop Story

Brides often discover that choosing the flower girl dress is a high point of their wedding plans. What’s not to love? Each dress is more adorable than the next (and then there are those darling accessories). Plus, the tiniest attendant always looks precious as she tosses her rose petals down the aisle. A bonus? The traditional rules for a bridal gown don’t apply to the flower girl, as she’s basically the wedding’s mascot. So the bride can exercise her creativity in choosing from a gamut of styles. Since David’s Bridal offers an array of styles, we’ve curated a selection of our favorites from the popular wedding focused retailer. Each dress includes a review from a real bride to help you make your decision.

 

Finding the Appropriate Flower Girl Dress

 

Tips:

Some flower girl dresses from David’s Bridal actually coordinate with the bridal gown, which is a visually holistic approach to choosing the flower girl’s dress. Another route to take is to match the flower girl’s (or girls’) dress color with that of the bridesmaids. Or you can choose a charming dress in a standalone style that features a colored ribbon at the waist to match the wedding party’s color.

 

 

How to Choose a Flower Girl Dress

 

Cost:

Traditionally, any child attendant’s parents pick up the cost of the flower girl dress. Ask them what price range they find comfortable. Our favorites from David’s Bridal start at $40 with a handful ranging as high as $160, but most are around $50 to $80. It’s up to the bride and groom to cover the cost of the flower baskets, petals and floral hair wreaths.

 

 

Color:

Tradition rules the color selection, too. Flower girl dresses are typically white or ivory, so David’s Bridal tends to focus on those shades as well. However, many modern brides opt for a color that matches that of the “big girls” in the wedding party. To add a splash of color, a bride can include a sash, which David’s Bridal sells separately in a range of colors.

 

 

Style:

Think of the wedding aesthetic, which sets the tone: Go more formal for a black tie affair and less so for a party on a farm. Your flower girl dress is its own garment that can stand alone from the rest, but its mood should blend in.

  

 

Fabric & Other Features:

Flower girl dresses tend to be made of dressier fabrics, such as satin, tulle, lace and organza. Thankfully, David’s Bridal offers these fabrics in modern blends that allow the flower girl to remain comfortable.
