Flower girls in general capture the attention of all the wedding guests as they walk down the aisle by being nothing more than themselves. She has cuteness written all over with a beaming, smiling face looking at everyone on their walk to the front. Flower girls usually need nothing more than an appropriately beautiful dress that can be found and purchased online from a reputable company. Sometimes though flower girls would like to be more like the bridesmaids with their accessories and flower bouquets they carry on their grown up walks down the aisle before the bride arrives. It can be easy to go overboard when buying accessories to go with the flower girl’s dress so here are some quick and easy tips to help buy the right accessories to enhance the beauty with minimal effort.
1. Hair accessories: Ribbons, clips, bows, and flowers in a flower girl’s hair are always fun. They work with any style of hair from up to down and everything in-between. The accessories need to match the flower girl dress and bridal party in color, style, and fabric. Hair accessories need to be wearable for long periods and should be light enough to do that. Little flower girls won’t like wearing something that hurts their head or is uncomfortable. They may wind up pulling it out on their own in the middle of the ceremony. Something to keep in mind when picking hair accessories is that they do not have to be worn throughout the reception. It will not take away from the party if the flower girl ditches her hair accessory for the reception.
2. Jewelry: Should it be decided that the flower girl is to wear jewelry remember that less is definitely more in young girls. When selecting a piece of jewelry keep it simple. Be it earrings, bracelet, necklace or a combination make sure they compliment the flower girl dress and be in line with what others might be wearing. Remember that the younger the flower girl the more likely it is that they will pull at the jewelry and it could break or even get lost. Expensive, antique and family pieces should not be worn by the flower girl. Like the hair decorations make sure the jewelry matches the flower girl dress, is light, comfortable and fun to wear.
3. Shoes: Every flower girl needs a pair of shoes to match her flower girl dress. Try to take the flower girl along when picking out a pair of shoes or if ordering online be very sure of the size the flower girl wears. The younger the flower girl the flatter the shoes should be in the heel. Shoes should be very comfortable to wear as they will be worn for an extended time. The type of shoe should match the type of flower girl dress. The more formal the dress the more formal the shoes should be. Most important to remember when choosing shoes is comfort above all else. A flower girl with feet that hurt is likely to fidget through the ceremony and not be very happy during the reception either.
4. Other accessories. Flower girls may also wear other types of accessories such as baskets or bouquets, handbags, gloves, jackets, etc.
Similar to the flower girl’s dress accessories can be purchased online. Often they can be purchased at the same time as the flower girl dress to ensure that they will coordinate. Your choice for purchasing online is varied and extensive. Remember to order the flower girl dress and accessories so that they will arrive about 4-6 weeks before the ceremony to allow for any alterations or last minute changes. By planning in advance the stress level is reduced and the possibility of forgetting something important is reduced. Begin the search for the perfect flower girl dress and accessories now, the online stores are ready and open for your convenience.
