Your best friend has chosen your toddler daughter to be her special flower girl on her wedding day. While this certainly is great news for you, but buying toddler flower girl dresses can sometimes be a tricky business as well. Here we bring you some handy tips and tricks on buying toddler flower girl dresses for a special wedding and how to make your daughter stand out amidst the crowd of other older flower girls.
First thing that you need to keep in mind is to never buy flower girl dress before the bride buys her wedding dress. The color of toddler flower girl dresses should be complimenting brides dress so be extremely careful with it. If the bridal gown is stark white or ivory in color then only you should buy white flower girl dress. Here as well, please keep in mind that all colors that say white are actually not white, most of the times they are different shades of ivory, likewise silk can never be white and there is nothing called diamond white, its just a paler version of ivory.
So, if the bride is wearing white or ivory, then flower girl dress should also be in that tone only. However, it is not necessary to buy the same shade as brides’ dress, but it should also not be lighter then the brides gown. Else, it will overshadow brides dress, thus you can settle for a darker tone for the toddler flower girl dresses.
Second most important thing is to carefully take the measurements of your toddlers’ height and chest. Also, never, ever buy flower girl dress more than 6 months in advance and even if you are buying it in advance, take size half a centimetre more for each advance month you are making the purchase. For this, first you need assess which height chart your girl falls in and corresponding to it only you can identify the size for her dress. Chest measurement is equally important,a s the dress should not be too tight for her. Always buy at least 2 centimetre extra in size for maximum comfort. Also, maintain balance between chest and waist measurements as the dress should fit properly on waist as well.
You certainly do not want you toddler flower girl dresses to be too tight from chest and too lose from the waist, so if you think that you need to buy more than 2 centimetre more in chest measurement then consider the waist measurement as well to strike a fine balance.
If possible buy all the dresses required for the wedding function together and also try to buy the dresses for all flower girls together so the the fabric and color for all flower girl dresses remain same. This will also ensure that pattern of their dress and the length of all flower girl dresses is same and there is consistency in what they all are wearing. If you are buying it separately then make sure you share the details with others so that they can include those in the dresses for other flower girls.
