Spring is a beautiful time to get married. Having spring wedding theme is the great idea for this season. Flower girl dresses are one of the last things to be ordered for most weddings. The reason is simple. It is because children grow rapidly and it is risky to order too early. There are some things to consider for a bride who is planning her spring flower girl dresses to be in time for her wedding.
Firstly, don’t put it off until it is too late. It is recommended ordering about 4 months before the wedding. The majority of dresses are available to transport in 12 weeks or under, so if you order 4 months beforehand you are allowing for any unexpected problems and still obtain delivery in a lot of time to have them shifted before your wedding date. Three months should still work in most cases. And there is a lot to be said for the ease of mind recognizing that it has been done and all is well. How to select the styles of flower girl dresses for spring time is purely a matter of personal preference. Here are some guidelines for picking out the perfect spring flower girl dresses.
Flower girls are typically young girls age 8 and younger. They are always sweet and adorable with a classic ball gown style dress with frothy full skirt gathered to waistline. No matter what look you choose for your adult attendants, flower girls will always have a darling look in this type of dress. And your flower girl dresses can be also coordinated to reflect the look of the bride or bride’s maids in a lot of ways without having to do a great effort to precisely match (which is rarely possible). Here are the ways.
You can match the silhouette. For example, if you have A-line dresses for the adults, you can choose an A-line style for your flower girls. Then, coordinate features of the adult dresses such as choosing a similar neckline. If you and your adult attendants are wearing a V neckline, for instance, you can opt for a dress with a V neckline for your flower girls. Other features can be reflected in your flower girl dresses. For example, the pick-up style skirts are very famous with brides. You can choose flower girl dresses with pick up skirts too.
It is important to harmonize the colors. It’s impossible to match colors if you are ordering dresses from different companies or even from the same company if at different times since every dye lot is different. Nevertheless, you can harmonize the colors wonderfully by opting for contrasting colors, different shades of similar colors (like pink to go with burgundy) or add a splash of color with a sash, with flower petals or with embroidery to a white or ivory flower girl dress. Length can be either tea or formal length.
Older girls will likely prefer to be called “Jr. Brides Maids” and a lot of will chafe at the thought of wearing a dress they consider to be “babyish”. Care has to be taken to select a style that looks a bit older and yet is still age-appropriate. After all, she is still a child attendant. Some ball gown styles are very appropriate for the Jr. Brides maid, but older girls especially age 10 and up prefer the sleeker styling of an A-line gown. It aids make them feel more adult. You can still integrate coordinating features as it is discussed above for spring flower girl dresses.
