Best Fall Flower Girl Dresses
Shop The Story
A white bridal gown is the archetypal wedding symbol, but the other iconic frock belongs to the flower girl. Traditionally a confection of lace, tulle and satin, such a dress contains depths of beauty in its petite form. All eyes admire its wearer, that charming flower girl, as she enchants her audience by tossing rose petals. And if you’ve chosen the fall season for your wedding, you can add details that are inspired by autumn, including rich fabrics like jacquard, and deeper colors, such as dusky pink, violet and black.
Finding the Appropriate Fall Flower Girl Dress
Since fall flower girl dresses aren’t as easy-breezy as summer ones, it’s appropriate to go a bit dressier. You can choose a dramatic floor-length style or a dress accented by sequins. And don’t forget to buy a flower girl gift!
How to Choose a Fall Flower Girl Dress
Don’t fall in love with a flower girl dress before getting a budget from the flower girl’s parents. Traditionally, the flower girl’s parents will pay for the dress, so be courteous by not choosing an extremely expensive frock. You might even give the parents a couple of dress options from which to choose.
The traditional rules for a bridal gown can still be a bit strict, but the flower girl dress is not hampered by such rules of “proper” style. A fall wedding offers the bride the opportunity to choose a traditional white flower girl dress or pick deeper colors that are more fall-like, including dusky pink, navy, wine, violet or black. Fall weddings also allow for a dressier flower girl ensemble.
Even if you choose a sleeveless flower girl dress, you can add tights, shrugs and close-toed shoes to make it more seasonally appropriate for fall. Your wedding aesthetic remains important, which might mean that your flower girl wears a traditional white or ivory frock that visually mirrors your wedding dress. On the other hand, you might choose a flower girl dress that connects to the color and style of the bridesmaids’ dresses.
Fabric & Other Features:
Above all, your flower girl’s ensemble should be comfortable, because if the flower girl isn’t happy, no one’s going to be happy. On the more traditional side, you might choose a dress that blends satin, tulle and lace together. You might also choose a thicker jacquard for the fall season.
