While flower girls look adorable in any dress, the latest styles today range anywhere from tutus to slip dresses. While planning for my April 2011 wedding, I’ve come across some great new trends for dressing the youngest of my entourage. Traditionally, the flower girl was dressed to match the bride – in white or ivory. Here are three modern takes on spring flower girl dresses:
What better way to celebrate your spring wedding than by replicating the wonderful pink hues of the season? The “Cotton Candy” dress by Little Flowers by Odssey features an over-sized tiered pink back sash/bustle over a lighter cotton candy colored silk ball gown.
What little girl doesn’t want to look like a princess out of a storybook? Well, Princess Blossoms by Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings has unveiled their line of flowergirl dresses inspired by the Disney Princesses. There are styles to mimic Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, and Jasmine. One of my favorites, the Cinderella dress, features two rows of blue piping at the waist and a bow and flower at the center back. Constructed in organza and satins, Disney’s Princess Blossoms dresses are indisputably charming.
Lastly, there’s an update on the traditional satin waist ribbon to match your accent colors. This dress from Sweet Beginnings highlights a satin ribbon with attached flowers flowing down the back. These sweet flowered accents help her live up to her title.
Whatever style you are searching for, with all the latest trends in 2011, you are sure to find the perfect frock to make your flower girl feel like an important part of the wedding procession.
