Flower girl dresses are worn by little girls between the ages of three and eight, mainly at weddings, where the flower girls walk down the aisle ahead of the maid of honor, sprinkling flowers and confetti in the path of the bride. Flower girls dresses are not, however, restricted to weddings, and are also often worn on many other occasions like at parties, receptions, communions, baptism, christening, Easter, and other special programs.
You can find flower girl dresses in materials like silk, organza, and satin, and with lashings of trimmings in lace, tulle, satin ribbons, seed pearls, beaded appliques, corded rosettes, and much more. One that really caught my eye was a white flower girl dress with a white princess style bodice, puffed sleeves, and a layered tulle skirt, sprinkled with pink and cream silk rosebuds. Another had a satin sleeveless corset back bodice accented with beaded rosettes and a full ankle-length skirt, trimmed with seed pearls around the hem, and lined with a crinoline underneath to give it a great ball-style effect.
Most little girls like to dress up, and given the wide choices in flower girl dress designs, patterns, textures, colors and sizes, you are sure to be able to find a suitable dress for even the most fastidious and picky young girl. Flower girl dresses are often accompanied by a variety of matching or complementary accessories like a tiara, a wicker basket with flowers, ribbons, headbands, bows, barrettes, veils, hair wreaths, gloves, and so on. You can buy these separate or buy them along with the dress.
