Choosing the flower girl apparel for your wedding can be quite fun and enjoyable if you know what you are doing. You might have chosen one special little girl for your flower girl or you may not be able to make that decision, so you plan to have several flower girls walk down the aisle at your wedding. Either way, you are going to want to select the appropriate flower girl apparel to coordinate with your bridesmaids.

You can choose an elegant and simple dress for the flower girl apparel or you may want your flower girls to look like little elaborately decorated princesses. The decision about the flower girl apparel is yours as you make plans for your special, once-in-a-lifetime wedding day. Here are six thoughts that you will want to fancy as you are looking through flower girl apparel for your wedding.

1. Age Appropriateness – Choosing flower girl apparel can be tricky if you are looking for dresses for several girls who are different ages. Think about the age of the flower girls and make sure that you are looking at styles that are age appropriate. If you are shopping for different age groups, you are going to have to find dresses that fit and flatter all of your flower girls. There is nothing wrong with selecting a color that looks great with your bridesmaids dresses (or choosing the same color) and letting your flower girls pick different styled, age appropriate flower girl apparel that they are comfortable in.

2. Formality – You do not want to choose flower girl apparel that does not flow with the formality of your wedding. For example, if you have chosen a nautical or beach theme for your wedding, you do not want to select extremely formal flower girl apparel. On the contrary, for a beach or nautical theme, you are going to want to select lacy or summery flower girl apparel that will help to pull the theme together and keep it consistent. A late autumn wedding could call for flower girl apparel in darker colors with velvet or other plush fabrics.

3. Order of Selection – Choose the bridesmaids gowns before you start shopping for the flower girl apparel. You might be able to find the same gowns in smaller sizes, if you want to keep the flower girl apparel consistent with your bridesmaids gowns. But, even if you do not want to match the flower girl apparel exactly to the bridesmaids dresses, you are going to want them to coordinate is some form or fashion, so choosing the bridesmaids gowns first will help you with your flower girl apparel decision.

4. Forget Matching – If you are going for a uniquely styled wedding, consider forgetting about matching the bridesmaids gowns with the flower girl apparel. What we mean by this is that you do not have to pick the same exact dresses for the bridesmaids, and, therefore, you do not have to choose the same exact dresses for the flower girls, either. Some brides-to-be simply select the color and and the formality and then allow the bridesmaids and the flower girls to choose the dresses that they are most comfortable wearing. You could even choose contrasting colors for the bridesmaids and flower girls. This gives your wedding a unique flair and allows the ladies who are participating in your bridal party to enjoy shopping for their dresses with little limitation.

5. Practicality – If you want to give your flower girls something nice that will add to their wardrobe, consider the practicality of the dress that you are selecting. Rather than the uniquely adorned princess dress that the flower girl will only wear once in her lifetime, consider choosing a dress that she can wear at other functions in the future. Additionally, make sure that the fabric of the flower girl apparel will not be itchy or too hot during the wedding ceremonies, as you want your flower girl to enjoy the day and not be wrestling with her dress all day.

6. Accessorize – Flower girl apparel is not much different than the bridesmaids’ gowns. The gowns are one part of the apparel, but you do not want to forget (or overdo) the accessories. Once the flower girl apparel is chosen, you will want to help your flower girls select jewelry that is not only age appropriate, but also adds to (and does not detract from) the appeal of the dress. Consider hair bows with sparkles, a pretty hand-held basket, lacy tights and small necklaces and earrings to complete your flower girl apparel.
