The dress can be short or long, but it is always classically “little girl” in style. Certain styles work better in a big hotel ballroom, others on a beach, so keep that in mind as you shop.
Fabrics and colors for flower girl dresses vary greatly, consider the time of year. If yours is an autumn or winter wedding, rich fabrics such as velvet or velour are wonderful, not just for their beauty, but because they will keep the chills away. For a spring or summer wedding, lighter fabrics keep the flower girl from melting in the heat — and melting down. While tights are great for a cold weather wedding, they will be uncomfortably warm in the summer months (even though they look cute!). For footwear, choose a ballet slipper style in kid or patent leather; no high heels or styles that will be uncomfortable or difficult to walk in.
Always remember the comfort of your little guests if they are uncomfortable, most likely you or your guests will be too.
A flower girl’s dress should complement the bride’s. It can be white, or the same color as the bridesmaids dresses. If her dress is white, a colored floral accent may be used to tie it in with the bridesmaid dresses.
No matter how precious the flower girl looks, if her dress and shoes are uncomfortable, it will be reflected in her face and behavior. (SOURCE: PcQL)
