If there is one thing I adore, it is a little girl in a sweet classic dress. On the other hand, if there is one thing I cannot stand, it is flower girls dressed up like mini brides in full length dresses. That is why I am so excited about these charming flower girl dresses. They are summery, classic, and very pretty – just perfect for a summer wedding!
For an informal outdoor ceremony, I am crazy about this pink gingham cotton dress by Kayce Hughes / Pears and Bears. Any little flower girl would look adorable in this timeless sleeveless dress, and it also looks very comfortable. If you live in a cooler climate, you might want to pick up a little white cotton cardigan she can wear with the dress. Picture how cute this dress would look for a country wedding or a preppy wedding under a tent. Best of all, it is simple enough that it could be worn again, which is something that is sure to please the mother of the flower girl. A small posy of pink peonies or Gerbera daisies would be a cute bouquet to match with this dress.
White is a traditional choice for a flower girl dress, and it looks especially sweet when the dress is a classic style with a Peter Pan collar and a sash. Add in smocking and made the dress in a cotton Swiss dot, and you quite possibly have the most perfect summer flower girl dress ever! This little frock from Baby CZ would be wonderful for almost any summer wedding, inside or outside. It would be terrific with bridesmaids wearing classic A line dresses in pink, navy, or green. A petite silver heart locket or pearl pendant would be the ideal flower girl jewelry to wear with this classic dress, and a white basket of rose petals would be just the thing to have her carry.
Floral dresses and flower girls are always a winning combination. A dainty Liberty print party dress is a lovely choice for a little girl. Imagine her wearing ballet slippers and a pink headband in her hair with this charming sleeveless dress from Baby CZ. For a beach wedding, a splash floral dress in bright pink, green, and turquoise from Lilly Pulitzer would be cute for a flower girl. She could wear little Jack Rogers sandals and carry a small floral pomander ball. If you prefer a more understated floral, choose a dress with a floral embroidery or even a cotton eyelet in pale blue or pink. So charming.
Speaking of charming, these plaid linen dresses from The Briar Patch would be fantastic for summer flower girls. If you have more than one flower girl, you could select a different color for each one. The little crocheted ornament gives the dresses a touch of country whimsy (and they are also removable). They would look great with bridesmaid dresses made from organza or polished cotton. Picture these for a rustic chic barn wedding with wildflowers and fresh fruit pies. Your little flower girls will look darling and also be comfy running around on a hot summer’s day – perfect!
