Beautiful And Cheap Blue Flower Girl Dresses

Updated on December 14, 2015

Pretty Little Thing

Next to the bridesmaids and of course, the beautiful bride, the flower girl is a much anticipated sight on a couples Big Day. Whether she is the daughter of the happy couple, or related in some other way to them, the flower girl is a traditional and extremely sweet sight in any wedding.

When I was little I desperately wanted to be a flower girl - and envied other girls in my class, family and friend group who got this honour bestowed upon them. Had I seen these dresses back then, I think I would have imploded through desperation to be a flower girl, and also due to the fact that I have always been a sucker for a beautiful dress.

The Flower Girl

Usually, but not always, the flower girl will walk down the aisle before the bride, scattering flower petals (hence the name "flower" girl). Traditionally, flower girls are very young - some have only just learned to walk - and her dress will generally be in keeping with the colour theme of the wedding, and especially the bride's dress.

Sometimes the flower girl will be accompanied down the aisle with a page boy or ring bearer, which is ideal for younger children as it can be a daunting and scary experience. One flower girl in my family decided half way down the aisle to go back to her mom who was sitting in one of the pews!

Personally, I never got to be a flower girl, but for those who are, it is a truly special and memorable day that will always be looked back on with great fondness.

Flower girl dresses can be any colour and style - it is completely dependant on the bride and groom's wishes and the style of their wedding, whether it is themed or classic. I have tried to include different styles and colours here, but all are indisputably beautiful.

If Your Daughter is to be a Flower Girl...

A flower girl can be any age, even though generally people think of them as very young, and usually their dress is a different style to that of the bridesmaids. This really sets her apart from everyone else and makes her stand out, which can be quite frightening for girls of a very young age.

If your little one is going to be a bride's flower girl, explain to her exactly what her job is so that she knows what to do on the big day and try to give her a few practice goes if possible as this will really help her confidence grow - children like to feel they know what to do and van become extremely timid if this is not the case. Let her know that she is very important, and tell her that the bride will be very grateful to her for being brave. Reassurance is key in these situations!

I think that bridesmaids are often the perfect people to look after the flower girl if she becomes nervous - but if she needs to go and sit back down with her mom then she should have explained in advance that that's okay as this takes some if the pressure off her.

Tips For A Happy Flower Girl

On the day, naturally there are going to be lots of unknown faces, so the key is to ensure there are as many familiar faces as possible looking out for her so when she looks into the rows of people she can spot at least a few nice faces she knows.

Take plenty of time to compliment how beautiful she looks and practice what is going to come, as the big day will then not be quite as new and scary.

Make time for the rehearsal (if there is one) as this will help the flower girl get a feel of what her duties are.

Make her feel important, but ensure she knows there is no pressure and you are proud of her.

Have an exit strategy - if you have a very young daughter who is going to be the flower girl it's a good idea to discuss with the bride and groom what you will do if there was a situation such as a tantrum or meltdown. If the worst should happen, stay calm and remember no one will judge you - they will most likely be feeling sympathetic to the little princess who got a bit scared.

Different Lengths For Flower Girl Dresses

There are a number of different styles of flower girl dresses, but knee length or floor length are generally the most popular and traditional. This factor will also depend on your daughters age, as a very young child may find a knee-length dress easier to walk in (decreasing the risk of an accidental trip and fall)!
