For us having kids at our wedding was a no-brainer. I absolutely love kids and think they can create some adorable and memorable moments at weddings. I know kids can sometimes create issues at weddings (running through important photo-ops, crying at the top of their lungs during the vows, or knocking over the cake table), but it is a risk we are willing to take. I don’t think there will be that many children in attendance, and I trust the parents we are inviting to corral their children if necessary. I love all kids, but there is one very special child that I can’t imagine not having at our wedding.
Our flower girl (let’s call her Tiny Dancer) is my favorite tiny human in the world. Tiny Dancer is MOH Dancer’s daughter, and from the moment I was told she would be coming into the world I loved her. I remember painting Tiny Dancer’s nursery, helping MOH Dancer register for her baby shower gifts, and holding Tiny Dancer for the first time.

Fast forward three and a half years and Tiny Dancer has grown into a bubbly, happy toddler who has been practicing her flower-girl skills for months now.
Isn’t she adorable?
I want Tiny Dancer to wear something more special than the traditional flower-girl dress: i.e., white, long, and, frankly, expensive.

Thanks to Etsy and Pinterest I found some adorable (and sassy) options:

I love them all, but I want to make sure we pick a dress that Tiny Dancer will like and will be comfortable in all night. Which dress is your favorite? Who are the special tiny humans in your wedding?
