The innocence of the little girls holding their baskets, looking like Angels as they walk down the aisle, captures an unforgettable moment of time and sets the tone for the arrival of the bride.
They are the flower girls! In most instances, being asked to be the flower girl marks the debut of her first formal occasion. Once you have selected your little girl for that special day, you may need to speak to her parents about the time and financial commitment. The flower girl will need to attend rehearsals and other wedding-related activities and her parents will probably need to accompany her.
Many brides today are finding it fun to dress up their favorite little girl as a miniature bride and send her down the aisle to stir up anticipation for the real bride. The flower girl’s dress is usually linked to the rest of the bridal party, by the color of the sash or by the color of the flowers on the dress. When choosing a dress some brides choose a dress that is similar in style to the bridesmaids dress or can be a miniature version or similar to the bride's dress but tailored to fit the little flower girl. Fabrics such as silks and satins work beautifully depending on the formality of the wedding party. It's probably best to leave the flower girl's dress until last about 4-6 weeks prior to your wedding date.
