Finding the perfect flower girl is a wish every bride out there has. And if you want to make that wish real, take a look at this list we made together with Sophia’s Style on how to find the perfect flower girl dress.

You’ll know what are the key aspects you should take into consideration when selecting a dress and make sure you’ve checked all the points before going shopping with your little one!

Choose the Right Length

If you’re wondering what length should a flower girl dress have, don’t worry! There isn’t any standard rule, but you should follow your intuition. Depending on the age of the girl and her ability to walk alone on the aisle without tripping, you can determine the length. Floor-length dresses are suitable for older girls, while T-length or short dresses are appropriate for baby girls and toddlers.

Pick the Right Size

Kids grow fast, so picking the right size can be tricky. The girl should attend some fittings before the event just to make sure the dress is not too long/short/tight etc. This way she’ll feel comfortable at the Big Event and unfortunately incidents like tripping on the dress while walking will be avoided.

When to Buy the Dress

A perfect timing for buying the dress is essential. Going shopping months in advance is good if you want to see what’s available out there, but terrible if you want to buy the dress. The little one can outgrow the dress in a couple of months and you’re efforts will be wasted.

Pick a Happy Colour

A bright dress can bring a happy large smile on the girl’s face like nothing else! Traditionally, the flower girl’s dress was supposed to be white, but now there are plenty of colorful options for you to choose from out there. Don’t get stuck in traditions if you don’t feel like it.

Stay Season Appropriate

A freezing girl walking down the aisle is not the most adorable thing to see. Keep your flower girl warm if you’re having the wedding in a cold season. A bolero and an umbrella are very stylish finishes for her attire. Take into consideration a dress with sleeves too.

Comfy Shoes Are a Must

The shoes for kids have all one thing in common: they are very comfy. When your flower girl walks in her adorable dress on the aisle, she mustn’t feel any kind of discomfort. If you buy matching shoes for the dress, allow her to wear them a couple of time around the house so she can get used to them.

Flower Girl Accessories

Any outfit needs some accessories to be complete. Hair flower crowns or ribbon wands are perfect for a tiny little girl. You can make these accessories together with your girl if you’re looking for a bonding activity!

About the Author Sophia’s Style:
Sophia, our little girl, has inspired us in so many ways. Born in 2003, we knew right away that she was unique (as are all little girls) and sought to dress her in adorable yet affordable baby girl clothes. However, we could not find a girls clothing stores that carried everything we wanted for our baby girl at prices we could pay. Thus, SophiasStyle.com was born – a unique online boutique offering baby girl clothes, toddler girl clothes and girls clothing at affordable discount prices.
