    I think it is a lot like the bridesmaid dresses/tuxes. I think the parents of the flower girl would buy the dress – but I would definitely incorporate them into the decision making of which dress, and the price. If you have a certain dress in mind that you really want her to wear, but it’s a bit pricey, you may want to consider buying it, or helping the parents buy it. Good luck! 🙂

    I viewed it as them doing us a favor by having their daughter in the wedding, so we bought the dress.  We found a nice one online for $40 so it wasn’t a big deal.  If you can possibly afford it, I think it’s a really nice gesture.

    Etiquette wise-I have no idea how its supposed to go.   My twin nieces are going to be the flower girls (they will be 10 at the wedding), and I’m learning that there are no “cheap” flower girl dresses for 10 yr olds since they’re considered jr. bridesmaids and the dresses seem to cost the same amount as the BM’s dresses.  I found dresses that can be custom for fit for $100 (one of my nieces is still a size 12/14 and the other is already growing a chest and can barely fit in a 16…but i don’t feel comfortable having a 10 yr old wear a dress made for a 16 y/o…so we will customize the dress for her) and my sister and I decided to split the cost for the girls.

    Technically, the parents are supposed to purchase it. However, I’ve heard a lot of couples paying for the FG/RB outfits and that’s we did as well. Our FG had outfits from another wedding they could’ve worn but I was really particular so I ordered and paid for their outfits myself. That way, I didn’t have to feel bad about the parents shelling out all this money for an impractical outfit (I went with ballet-inspired huge tutus among other things) and I could get exactly what I want.

    We paid for our flower girl’s dresses. We got them on sale at a retail store (The Bay) for $25 each. My bridesmaids did pay for their own dresses though.
