We are kicking off the new week with an Ask Emmaline question from bride-to-be, Marissa. She asks,
“Hi Emmaline! I’m seeing a lot of flower girl dresses in white or ivory made to look like the bride. I was wondering, do flower girl dresses have to be white? I want my flower girl to wear a different color to coordinate with my bridal party. Please let me know. Thank you!”
Hi Marissa! Great question. No, flower girl dresses do not have to be white, nor do they need to resemble the bride’s dress. The flower girl dress you choose is completely up to you! For 2020 weddings, we’re seeing many flower girl dresses in bold, beautiful colors.
We’ve seen flower girl dresses chosen in aqua or turquoise to match beach bridesmaids, in bold yellow for sunflower themed weddings, in burgundy to coordinate with fall colors, and we’ve even seen black flower girl dresses for sophisticated, elegant weddings (and to match the bridesmaids in little black dresses!) One example is this black shimmer flower girl dress. Isn’t it darling? I love the ruffles on the shoulders!
Here are additional color options for flower girl dresses that are all on-trend right now. I especially love that larkspur blue color!
And if you want to go with an ivory or white flower girl dress (but add a pop of color), you can add a colorful sash, as shown here:
Another fun way to add color to a flower girl dress is with a sequin top and skirt, as shown in this example.
The sash can be customized in a color to coordinate with your palette, theme, or bridesmaid dresses.
You can find a large selection of colorful flower girl options at flowergirlsonly.com.au.
So, what do you think? Are you choosing a non-traditional colorful flower girl dress? Tell us in the comment box below!
Hope it helps! Happy Planning!
