Other than the bride herself, nothing adds charm to a wedding than the flower girl coming down the aisle wearing an ivory flower girl dress and gracing the floor with flower petals. She is the last person seen before the entrance of the bride at most traditional weddings and will set the tone, adding anticipation and lots of camera flashes from the audience. The bride can be inundated with many dress options for the flower girl from a little preview version of the bride’s gown to color coordinating with the bridesmaids. While there is a lot to consider, staying on top of trends will help the bride to narrow down her choices much easier. Let’s take a closer look at the top trends in flower girl dresses.
Floral Adornments and Prints
No matter what time of year the wedding is held, flowers and floral prints will be seen in many flower girl options. Not only will be flowers seen as textual elements to these pint-sized dresses, but will be placed on capped sleeves, on the bodice of the dress as soft and delicate petals or even more commonly found as floral trim on the bottom or back of the dress, creating a dramatic affect when walking down the aisle. The looks can be completed with matching floral headbands, barrettes or hair ties. While it’s common for most flower girls to be between the ages of 4 to 8 years old, adding specific details will not only make the wearer comfortable, but will remain age appropriate. For instance, an ivory flower girl dress adorned with the popular trend of sheer sleeves adorned with tiny beads or flowers will add a big wow factor, making the dress even more adorable. Sleeves worn for spring weddings will be largely made of lace and or satin. For added coverage and warmth, sleeves worn in the winter and fall season can be worn with matching bolero jackets or shoulder wraps to cover sheer sleeves.
While the most common color worn is the ivory flower girl dress, one of the most popular trends this season is the pastel dress. Brides can choose from soft colors like lemon yellow, mint green or bubble gum pink flower girl dresses or opt to match the dress color chosen for the bridesmaids. No matter what color is chosen, pastel hues will add an additional cute factor, making the bridesmaid the second most popular person at the wedding.
Trends in flower girl dresses today will add a more personal touch to reflect not only the personality of the bride, but that of the flower girl and can add a touch of whimsy and adorable style to the wedding.
