    I love every picture you posted…your bridesmaid dresses are awesome.  I think the little captain’s suit for the ring bearer is awesome…and that the blue dress with the rope belt would be the best option.  The striped dresses are super cute but I think they’re too informal for the way everything else looks.  And you said the sailor suits for the girls weren’t available, right?

    Beautiful elments are coming together for your wedding !!

    I’ve been a fan since I first saw your Blue Crinoline (it is really awesome)

    Personally, I’d go with the sailor suit for the Ring Bearer, and the coordinating sailor dress for the youngest of the FGs

    Which brings up another question… Size 12, wow… that is one big Flower Girl (knowing that you are now nearing Misses Sizes that begin after Girls Size 14).  Can I ask how old she is? 

    Because I can tell you as a Mom, that my pre-teen (10 to 12)… would never have wanted to be a Flower Girl relegated off with “the kiddies”… so I am hoping you have a more mature role for her in your “vision”

    In which case… the Nordstrom Champagne number would go nicely with look of your Bridesmaids Dresses (you could call her a Jr Bridesmaid).  Maybe have the Ring Bearer & the Flower Girl walk together… and have the Jr-BM follow them down the aisle ahead of the regular Bridesmaids.

    Honestly, I think it would look extremely elegant (and Jr Bridesmaids are sooo classic)

    Alternatively… you could put both girls in the last all-blue dress (the striped one is adorable, but too youngish I think for the older girl… she’d probably hate it).  And I do like the idea of adding the nautical tied rope belt.

    Hope this helps,

    The rope belt is cool, but I would stick with a striped ribbon belt and the navy blue dresses. The ring bearer outfit is amazing.

    I think that j crew dress is perfect if you want her to be able to wear it again… but it might look a little odd with the gold ribbon around the waist. What about a gold sparkely head band and shoes ? 

    If those are not an opion then I would choose the blue dress with the gold ribbon

     I would use the sailor ring bearer’s outfit and the striped dresses. The striped dresses are cute, more en theme, and reasonably priced. Personally, I’m not hung up on whether they like it or not, although I think they will like it. It’s your wedding and you are entitled to have what you want.

    Add some cute satin flats and they will be adorable.

    I don’t think the children necessarily need to be dressed as formally as the adults. They are children after all, and some formal  flower girl dresses just look too adult.

    I’m loving the blue dress with the rope belt. I think it will look great!. I also love the little sailor suit for your ring bearer. So cute.

    I love the one from J. Crew and I love the one from Us Angels at Nordstrom. I was all set to tell you that I’m not sure which I like more (except I’m not a fan of the first truly nautical option). But, then when I came to the bottom dress and I saw the navy dress. It is awesome! It goes so well with the ring bearer outfit and I love the rope belt. What a unique and really pretty touch. That gets my vote.
