A happy flower girl makes for a happy bride; make all her dreams come true by finding the perfect finishing touches for her outfit. 

1. Dress additions

Tulle material used to be the property of ballet tutus and fairy outfits, but now thanks to a resurgence as a premium bridal fabric it's back and looking better than ever. Already have your flower girl dress but want to add a splash of colour? A sash can brighten a white or ivory dress in an instant.

2. The perfect shoes

The perfect shoes are important for any girl. Ivory, white or coloured to complement your colour scheme can serve to offset the dress beautifully.

3. Hair bracelets

Hair bracelets can be used to enhance your flower girl’s outfit as a standard bracelet, around a bun, around the neck or as an anklet.

4. Headbands to die for

Great for older flower girls, you can find headbands in an array of colours, materials and adorned in various embellishments such as pearls and Swarovski crystals. Similarly pretty hair clips tend to be better suited to smaller girls.

5. Matching bag

Every girl knows the importance of a matching bag, and your flower girl is no exception. There are a range of colours out there, available in a simple drawstring style.

6. A thank you gift to keep forever

Say thank you to your flower girl with a gift that she can wear and keep together. Individual initial pendants on a silver chain or a simple string of pearls offer the perfect keepsake.

7. Detachable panniers

Add some panniers to give a hint of Princess to any flower girl dress. Available in a range of colours and trimmings including broderie anglaise, a detachable pannier is a beautiful addition. Mums can also purchase other colours to give new life to a re-used flower girl dress.

8. Super deluxe petticoat

Play around with skirt sizes using a petticoat. Try a few sizes to decide how big or small you want to go.

9. Cardigan

From ruffles to ballet wraparounds, a basic cardigan can offer your flower girl a warm alternative to a heavier or bulkier overcoat. Grannie Annie Knits cardigans are a wonderful addition – knitted on her sofa in Kent.

10. Dainty accessories

A flower corsage, bright basket or magic wand gives your flower girl a final flourish while keeping her hands occupied as she walks down the aisle.
