Girls in White Dresses with Blue Satin Sashes

Thanks for listening yesterday—I know I will be fine, and I have plenty done. The things I can’t control will work themselves out for me, and for you too. On to more fun things!

I have a dress, the Clover ‘maids’ dresses are chosen and ordered, colors are chosen, so it’s on to the cutest member of the wedding party—flower girl time!

The flower girl “symbolizes the bride’s childhood & youth” according to these fine folks, as well as the meaningful contributions of children (and I thought they were just there to look cute!). Shamrock’s niece will be two and a half, which is a little young, but her brother will be our ring bearer (he’ll be almost six), so we think she can handle it. But what should she wear?

Just me in one of my flower girl dresses. Photo credit completely unknown. My parents? Their photographer?

I’m was the flower girl, and my sister (who was a little too young at the time) was a wedding guest. I was very proud of my flower-girl-hood, and my sister was upset, so my mother explained to her that she was a wedding guest. She spent the whole wedding responding to anyone who said how cute the glower girl was that she was a wedding guest! (On a related note, we believed for years the ice cream truck was the Music Truck, driving around playing songs to make children happy just to be nice. We believe basically anything our mother tells us, apparently.)

I know it’s hard to see here, but this is basically the best dress of all time. It was purple and satin and a had a full skirt, and the photographer told us to to twirl for cute pictures and then we could.not.stop all night, even when we almost threw up. Man, I loved that dress. MOH Sis is rocking out in the front and I’m in the back left. (Oh, and I have no idea where this photo is from either—my uncle posted it on Facebook.)

ANYhow, enough about me. What will flower girl wear?

Something in white, with a colored sash (we’d probably do blue, just to be all Sound of Music, or to match the colors).

This is probably a little much, but ohmygoodness cute. So white is definitely an option, but we could also put Her Cuteness in a teal or blue option.

So cute, but I think the satin might be a little heavy for our June wedding—this dress looks more wintery to me. (Is that a thing?)

This one is cute & simple. David’s Bridal had options, but they looked to be around $100. I know my dress is a lot for a dress I’ll only wear once, but for a two year old?!? Really?!? Luckily, most of the options above are closer to the $50–$75 range. And we don’t want anything that might need to be hemmed, since who knows how tall she’ll be in four months.

Shamrock’s mom (flower girl’s grandma) was asking who was supposed to pay for the dress (she’s thinking of buying it for her granddaughter, which would be perfect because she LOVES to shop, but wasn’t sure if we were going to). I asked Mama Clover, and every time I was a flower girl someone made my dress. (We were guessing the girl’s family usually buys the dress, but since mine were made they paid for them, so now we aren’t sure.)

What is your flower girl wearing? Who’s paying for her dress?

    My daughter paid for her FG dresses; actually, for the ones we bought on-line that didn’t match and were unreturnable, and then for the perfect ones we found – of all places – at David’s Bridal. They were $120 each, but were ivory satin with a champagne ribbon and matched everything perfectly, so she splurged. The two girls were sisters, and we didn’t feel it was fair to ask their parents to buy them, especially so close to Christmas. Seeing them in photos, they were worth it! I can’t seem to upload a photo – sorry!

    @TexasAggieMom: Awwww so cute! I’m not trying to match a super specific color, but I hadn’t even thought to check the return policy!

    @Mrs. Gondola: I think that makes sense for us too.
