Five helpful tips when choosing a flower girl dress

The flower girl is one of the most important persons in the wedding ceremony. That’s because she walks directly before the bride, often throwing beautiful flower petals on the bride’s path to the alter.

All eyes are on the little flower girl as she walks down the aisle, tossing petals, and smiling adorably. Wearing the perfect dress makes her feel special and confident throughout the big day.

When deciding about choosing flower girl dresses, we’ve prepared a few tips for you.


Let’s now talk about some ideas on how to choose flower girl dresses.

Dress match the wedding theme - The design of her dress usually depends on the theme of the wedding. If the wedding is on the beach, then the flower girl dresses should be in the light and airy colours, and simple designs. If the wedding is in a ballroom setting, then pick a fancy dress for your flower girl.

Select the appropriate color scheme - We say, “anything but a white dress” and Pegeen offers over 200 colors of silk and more to really make it different and interesting for not just the wedding party but for those who attend your wedding. See our color selection here,. You can choose flower girl dresses in a similar hue to the bridesmaids' dresses. If you are a bit confused about the look of the flower girl dresses, take the opinion of flower girl, especially if she is a little bit older as they have plenty of opinions.

Comfort is extremely crucial - The last thing anyone wants is the little one throwing a tantrum on the wedding day because her outfit is itchy or uncomfortable. So before buying the dress, make sure she’s happy about everything from fit to fabric. The flower girl usually moves around while wearing the gown, so it is better to choose something that resists wrinkles and rips. Silk is a great fabric for that and although we offer 200 silk colors we also have a number of soft knit and imported synthetic fabrics too, especially in our new budget collection starting at $99.

Choose the right length - Most flower girl dresses are either floor-length or what we call ballet-length. Ballet-length, which is about 4” or so above the ankle dresses better suits the toddlers, as they won't drag on the ground or create a tripping hazard for younger flower girls. Floor-length dresses tend to look more formal and elegant, and it better suits the young teenager and are most requested for our Jewish clientele.
