- Wedding: July 2013
I will have two “Flower Children” in my wedding, a brother and a sister (I’ve posted before about how absolutely thrilled I was when their parents said yes!).
He will be 9, and she will be two months shy of 8. He’ll be in a tux, so that’s easy, but I’m not sure where to find a flower girl dress appropriate for an almost-8-year-old. Most of the dresses I’ve seen are geared toward toddlers/very young kids.
I wish I could just bring her shopping and let her choose her own dress. But, she (like her brother) has autism and doesn’t have much patience for shopping. She absolutely LOVES dress-up, so it MAY work….. but I would definitely want to have a list of places that have age-appropriate flower girl dresses ready BEFORE we go.
Ideally, I’d like to find a couple dresses, buy them, let her try them at home to see if she likes or will even tolerate any of them, and then just return any that she (or I, or their parents) do not like. But.. I also don’t know what the return policy is for these kinds of dresses.
So obviously, I’m clueless, and I need help! Haha. Any suggestions will be appreciated. 🙂
EDIT: I’d like it to be similar at least a little bit to my dress (organza):
