Choosing the Right Flower Girl Dress

There is no member of the bridal party that draws more eyes than the flower girl. As she walks down the aisle, all eyes will be on this little lady as she walks with the most adorable dress on. She will be tossing pedals with the cutest little smile for all the cameras to see. Regardless if the flower girl is a niece, cousin, sister, or family friend, wearing a dress that they love will give them confidence and make them feel special. There are many factors that go into choosing the right flower girl dress, read on to find some helpful tips on how to choose something perfect.

Find Your Style and Color First

The bride, of course, has free reign over picking the flower girl dress of her choice. However, most brides make the decision to choose a dress that will tie into her wedding aesthetic. One of the more popular styles that most brides go with is a white or ivory colored frock dress that mimics her wedding dress. Another great option is choosing a flower girls dress that goes with that of the bridesmaids’ dresses. Though if you don’t have strong feelings either way, it is best to get the input of the soon-to-be flower girl herself. She is sure to love helping choose the dress she is going to wear on your big day.

She Will Grow Into It!

 When it comes to picking a flower girl dress, don’t worry about finding the perfect size. You don’t want her to wear something oversized and awkward, but you also don’t want something that is form-fitting and restrictive. Keep in mind, however, that children grow at a rapid rate. If you order a flower girl dress a year or so in advance, consider purchasing one that is one size up to account for any growth spurts.

Choose the Right Fabric

While the look of the fabric should match the aesthetics of the wedding, it should still be comfortable to wear. You always want to stay away from heavy, stiff, or itchy material. Since she will most likely be moving around a lot while wearing it, choose something that will resist any wrinkles and rips.

In the end, make sure the flower girl has fun at the wedding. This will be an exciting time for both of you and this day will be a memorable One for everyone involved, especially the flower girl. If you have searched for the perfect dress only to come up short, we here at All About the Gown by Judy, Inc. will help you find something that you will fall in love with.

A Guide to Shopping For a Mother of the Bride Dress

Weddings and ceremonies can vary drastically in style depending on the tastes of those involved. That being said, maintaining a unique but unified look across the entire ceremony is essential to a wedding that leaves a lasting impression on your guests.

Of course, that’s easier said than done when considering the different kinds of dresses made for different attendees. For example, many seem to overlook the fact that mothers of the brides are tasked with wearing a dress specifically styled for them. With such a specific request to be filled out, where is one to begin their search when planning to look their best as the mother of the bride?

Fortunately, that’s exactly what we plan on answering today! Read on for a few key considerations to keep in mind sure to make your next attempt at finding a dress the last!

Listen to the Bride

Listening to the bride and matching your dress to the ceremony’s style as a whole is never an ill-advised idea. Regardless of whether you agree with the choices or not, following the bride’s cues regarding style, color, and level of formality is an absolute must. Not only will this help you look your best, it’ll keep the bride happy. And at the end of the day, the bride is who matters most!

Know Where to Look For Color Cues

Like we mentioned above, complementing the established color schemes of any given ceremony will help you narrow down your search for a dress. Fortunately, this means you don’t have to worry about picking out your dress until the bride has picked hers. Waiting until the bridesmaids’ dresses have been picked is your best bet in guaranteeing your dress follows suit. This will give you some inspiration for your own dress while also giving you some wiggle room to set your style apart.

Taking inspiration from the venue is also a wonderful idea. From churches, and beaches, to chapels, and beyond, every venue will call for a different style. Knowing where the wedding will take place can help you really narrow down your field of search for the perfect dress.

 

Communicate

Of course, the bride will know better than anyone what style she’s interested in for her wedding. Asking for opinions and recommendations from her, provided she isn’t too busy, can help give your dress hunt the push it needs to get started.

Another important question to ask is whether or not you plan on matching with the mother of the groom. Keep in touch and make sure that, regardless of the plan, all parties know what to expect!

Conclusion

A wedding is a special event for more than just the bride and groom! Make sure you look your best by flawlessly expressing the style and aesthetic of the ceremony as a whole!
