Here comes the flower girl!
Article by: Marie Morris

The innocence of the little girl in her elegant flower girl dress leading the bridal party down the aisle whilst holding her little basket and carefully releasing the rose petals. She looks like a little Angel in her gown as she walks gracefully down the aisle to the sweet sound of music, fresh faced and captures an unforgettable moment of time. Flower Girl

She is the flower girl! In most instances, being asked to be the flower girl, marks the debut of here first formal occasion.

Many brides today are finding it fun to dress up their little favorite girl as a miniature bride and send here down the aisle to to stir up anticipation the the real bride.

The flower girls dress is linked to the other bridal party, i.e. sash, colour of flowers on the dress. When choosing a dress some brides choose a dress that is similar in style to the bridesmaids dress or can be a miniature version or similar to the bride's dress. but tailored to fit the little flower girl. Fabrics such as silks and satins works beautifully but depends upon the formality of the wedding party.

It's probably a good idea to measure the little girl (chest, waist and shoulders to angle/floor length measurements) "Always allow for growth" suggested Marie Morris of Goo Goo Gear as kids can have growth spurs. It's probably best to leave the flower girl's dress until last but a good idea to allow 4-6 weeks prior to your wedding date.

Choose an outfit for the flower girl which is comfortable but still staying within the overall style and compliment of the wedding party can be a little tricky. say's Marie. The Fabric shouldn't scratch or irritate the skin. Some kids have skin allergies and can only wear natural fibres such as cotton or silk.Flower Girls

Once you have selected your little girl for that special day, you may need to speak to her parents about the time and financial commitment. The flower girl will need to attend the church rehearsals and other wedding-relative activities and her parents will probably need to accompany her.

To select the perfect dress scan as many bridal magazines, internet sites, and bridal store to get ideas and options. Goo Goo Gear offer a number of styles that can be purchased easily online at there website: www.googoogear.com.au or we can offer to custom-make dress that will fit with the theme of your bridal party. Their formal wear range start from babies up to 12 years olds.

Whenever choosing a dress be practical and keeping in mind the dress length is reasonable so she doesn't trip or it is age-appropriate. say's Marie.

Most Flower girl's carry a small basket with either flowers or petals to sprinkle while walking down the aisle. It's probably a good ideas to have your flower girl walk up and down the aisle several times by her-self so that she feels comfortable having all eyes admiring her once the big day arrives.

She will be ready to make that long walk down the aisle. Resplendent with the charm that only a little girl has, your flower girl will proceed the rest of your wedding party and bring smiles and joy to many of your guests faces.
