Tutus to Tulle: Flower Girl Fashion Inspiration for 2015

22 Apr 2015

Finding the perfect flower girl outfit should be among the fun tasks for bride and grooms-to-be. Here is some flowergirl inspiration

The flower girl’s central role at a wedding is, of course, to look cute! But confetti, big eyes and a bouncy dress do not make her journey down the aisle any easier (it is daunting prospect, even for the bride).

Flower girls are not a necessity, but if you have children aged three to eight within your friends and family, it's a nice way to include them in your wedding day. They walk down the aisle, ahead of the bridesmaids, scattering petals along the way. They follow the ring bearer (if there is one) and can even go in front of the bride. Many people give their flowergirls wands, mini bouquets, baskets or bags to hold but it’s worth bearing in mind that they’re very young – make it a robust item.

In terms of what they should wear, it’s very flexible. From tea-length white dresses with garlands in their hair to tutus and wands, there are a lot of looks to choose from.
