Weddings are full of excitement and love. Nothing is sweeter to witness two people in love say their vows and embark on their new journey together. Many girls fantasize this one day just for the sake of walking the aisle in those pretty ivory gowns preceded by cute little flower girls. The whole scene looks absolutely dreamy just like a fairy tale. As a matter of fact, the cutest part of the whole wedding ritual is those little dolls walking the aisle as flower girls. Having been picked up as a flower girl for the bride is one of the most exciting and fascinating things for a little girl, so if your princess has been picked up to do the honors, you have got to do make sure it becomes a memory to cherish for her.
Becoming a flower girl for your child is her chance to fantasize herself as a Disney princess so make sure you get the perfect outfit for her. As a mommy, you might find it a bit of a daunting task, but if you plan it right, it is not going to be difficult at all. Here are a few things that you should take care of when picking up a flower girl dress for your daughter.
Set a Budget
Flower girl dresses are expensive and justifiably so. They are made of delicate material that is costly and it takes a lot of craft to make a gown. That being said, there are dresses available in all price categories and defining a budget will help you narrow down your search and save your time. That being said, when allocating budgets do your research and set a realistic budget. The under-budgeted dress would mean either you will be in for a “sticker shock” or you will end up with something low quality. Moreover, remember the outfit is not the only expense and you will need some spare cash for shoes and accessories too.
It is advisable that you start your hunt early, preferably as soon as you are informed that your daughter will be walking the aisle. Early planning will allow you more options to choose from and you will have more control over the budget. Often bridal fashion stores announce discount deals and promotions so if you are lucky to grab one of those you can save some extra bucks. Besides that, extra time also allows you to get a customized outfit rather than buying a ready to wear one.
The Right Dress
Although it is your responsibility to buy a flower girl dress for your daughter, it is always courteous and recommended that you take the bride’s input when choosing a dress. While traditionally, ivory flower girl dresses are a more popular choice as flower girls are meant to look like a mini version of the bride, but you may also choose some other pastel colors as long it blends well with the overall wedding theme. If you do not want to spend a lot on something heavily embellished lace flower girl dresses are a good alternative to consider for the occasion.
