    Preparing for your wedding is often an exhilarating task. You must decide on what type of flowers to use, wedding colors for the bridesmaids and ushers, and refreshments for the reception. You want everything to be perfect for that special day. But one detail that often gets put on the back burner is selecting a flower girl dress. Flower girl dresses are precious, frilly dresses worn by a little girl (usually between 3 and 8 years old) as she scatters flower petals down the aisle.

    The flower girl is usually of some relation to the bride or groom, either a little sister, cousin, or niece. She gets all dressed up – like the grown-ups – and participates in the introduction to the bride using a basket full of flower petals. The key to finding a lovely flower girl dress is to consider the flower girl’s size and height, hair color, and also the actual wedding colors.

    A Mini Bride’s Dress

    Flower girl dresses are often miniature replicas of the bride’s wedding dress. A flower girl dress may also be a white dress with a sash that matches the colours of the bridesmaids’ dresses. Of course, it doesn’t have to be an exact match. The materials can be matched along with the decorative and design aspects of your wedding dress. For example, if your wedding dress has lace and white beads, find a flower girl dress that has the same. If your wedding dress comes with a bolero jacket, make sure the flower girl dress has a similar jacket. You can also closely match the sleeves, neckline, and style of the dress.

    Colourful Flower Girl Dresses

    Flower girl dresses can also be colorful to match the wedding colours. The key is to match the flower girl dress with the bridesmaids’ dresses and the flower petal colours, though the match doesn’t have to be exact. The flower girl dress may complement the other colours and look just as beautiful. If the wedding colours are lavender and white, for example, you might dress the flower girl in a lavender and white dress with lavender and white flower petals mixed in the basket. Or, use a lavender dress with a white basket and lavender flower petals. There are many combinations to choose from to create a lovely, captivating moment.

    Consider the Flower Girl

    Don’t get caught up in the moment and forget to consider who will be wearing the flower girl dress. Consider the little girl’s likes and how she feels about fancy dresses. You’ll want her to be comfortable and happy as she walks down the aisle, not frowning and complaining. The dress should complement her height and hair color. Also, have the dress sized for comfort and flexibility. It should be flexible and free flowing to make walking down the aisle as easy as possible. It should also be easy to move around in – for those emergency moments!

    Where to Buy Flower Girl Dresses

    You can have flower girl dresses custom made or buy them from the same shop where you’ll buy your wedding dress. You can even buy flower girl dresses online. On the Web, there are flower girl dress shops, children’s boutiques, and online stores for kids’ special occasion clothing. These offer a variety of styles and sizes to fit your needs and budget. They also usually sell other specialty items such as boys’ suits, girls’ communion dresses, or christening dresses.

    Having just the right flower girl dress will bring plenty of “ahs” and “oohs” at your wedding. Use these ideas to create precious memories on your special day!

  • Planning Colours for Your Wedding: Fashion, Flowers, and More!

    Dreaming about your wedding is one thing; planning it is another. From wedding dresses to cakes and tuxedos to flowers – every aspect of your wedding must be carefully planned to “fall in place” on the big day! If you’ve been to one wedding or several, you probably realise the importance of wedding colours. Everything about the wedding is planned according the colours the bride chooses. So, here’s a quick guide to help you plan your wedding colours.

    Choose the Right Colours for Your Wedding Dresses

    Many brides use their favourite colours for their wedding dresses – pink, red, fuchsia, burgundy, plum, mauve, purple, or blue. But before you choose colours, see if you can’t find some photos of various weddings from the past. Look at a variety of colour patterns and combinations before making your choice. You might find colours that you like much better than your usual favourites.

    Consider how the colours of your wedding dresses will look with other colorful items once it is all put together for the big wedding day. The bridesmaid dresses will be matched with flowers, tuxedos, mother of the bride dresses, flower girl dresses, accessories, and even the reception decor.

    Wedding Dresses with a Touch of Colour

    A growing trend is to add a touch of colour to the bride’s wedding gown. This is perfect for the bride who wants more than the traditional wedding gown. Some brides have colour sprinkled throughout their wedding gown with embroidery. The gorgeous embroidery patterns come to life on the wedding dress when colour highlights are added. These are usually available in a variety of colours painted on an ivory white wedding gown.

    Test Wedding Colour Combinations

    Don’t be afraid to match unusual colours before making your choice. Some colour combinations might surprise you. For example, not many would choose bright peach, bright yellow and white, but these are actually beautiful when coordinated together in wedding flower arrangements with yellow dresses! Try out a variety of combinations to find the right wedding colours for you.

    Choose Colours that Complement You

    It’s your special day. Choose colours that complement your hair and skin tone. You’ll want colours that make you look wonderful on your wedding day. If you normally look great in red, then you’ll probably look fantastic amidst red decor and red bridesmaid dresses. Maybe you can even add some red embroidery colours to your wedding gown. Whatever colour suits you should work fine for the wedding.

    Other Considerations

    Other things to consider before choosing your wedding colours include the colours of the church or building where the wedding will be held as well as the reception hall, the types of flowers available for that time of year (if using real ones), and the availability of wedding dresses in those colours.

    Once you choose colours for your wedding dresses and flowers, you’re ready to start planning the wedding. To save time, you can find a wide variety of wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, and even prom dresses online. Be sure to choose the colours you love. After all, it is your special day!
