Do you have any suggestions for a formal flower girl dress?” Great question! There are a few tips to remember when picking a formal flower girl dress: read on to find out more and get inspired with handmade flower girl dresses. Enjoy!
3 Tips for Formal Flower Girl Dresses
When shopping for a formal flower girl dress, look for a floor-length or ankle-length dress (ideal for a formal, traditional wedding). If it is a summer or spring wedding, a knee-length dress is a great option (provided the bridesmaid dresses follow suit).
A formal flower girl dress is light in color: white or ivory is most popular. Light pink is another color option.
Formal flower girl dresses will be made with fabrics such as lace or tulle; look for other accents like a sweetheart neckline, lace bodice, or a dress sash.
EB TIP: Make sure it’s comfortable! Whether the flower girl dress you pick is formal or informal, one thing to keep in mind is comfort. Make sure the dress is comfortable for her to wear (and stay away from any itchy materials).
