I would offer to purchase another dress for her that matched my theme, and wedding.

I would just purchase her a new dress. Check out Zuilily, they have fancy dresses on there all the time that are inexpensive. They have a few pink ones today that are $30.

I agree with PP. Just get a new dress that you like

Get her a new dress — you can give whatever reason you want, whether it’s that you saw an inspiration picture you couldn’t get out of your head, you wanted your sweet little cousin to have two souvenirs, etc…but yeah, if you want to change the plans, you should probably pick the cost up.

Your concerns are completely valid, though! When I was a tiny flower girl myself (many years ago), I must have accidentally let my bouquet rest against the skirt of the dress, and the foliage must have been dyed a little, because there was a blue-green spot that my mom had to dab (and dab and dab) out before I went down the aisle.

Just an option to save some Money – look at Easter dresses – WM, JCP, Sears, Target all have cute ones, and under $30!

I agree about just buying her what you want. That way, you KNOW it’ll be perfect and you won’t feel bad having her buy 2 dresses so close together.

I’d suggest ebay or after-Easter sales. Especially for a light pink color! We got the flower girl dress off ebay for like $25! <– Brand new.

Agree, just buy the dress you want. I wouldn’t risk using the other one.

I also want to say, along with the great situations, to step back for a second and take a breath if you can. I was freaking out about my flower girl dresses and the options available but in the end, little kids look cute in just about anything, so don’t stress too much about this kind of detail. It all works out.
