Hi Ladies, you may remember the last poll I did regarding bridesmaids in converse. (UPDATE – I had one of my bridesmaids try on the dress with converse and the dress was in fact too fancy & just looked wrong!) Anyway, I had such great feedback I was hoping you could help with the flower girl dresses. My 6yr old daughter & 7yr old neice are going to be co-flower girls and I need help picking out their dress. Our wedding colors are Purple, Charcoal gray, and silver. The groomsmen will be wearing black tuxes w/ black shirts & their vest/ties will match the bridesmaid’s dresses. My FI will be wearing black tux/black shirt with a charcoal silverish vest/tie.
Here are the bridesmaids dresses:
So for the flower girls, I am really not a fan of white/ivory & I don’t want to go with a dark purple because I think it will be hard to match the bridesmaid’s dresses exactly. I was thinking of going either lavender or charcoal gray. Which dress do you like the best?

I’m not a fan of 2, but the other three are adorable. I think I would lean toward one of the purple ones so they get to wear a fun color (what little girl wants to wear grey??) and they’ll kinda match the other ladies. Between the purple, 1 might be my favorite, but I think 4 would maybe look better on older FGs.

#1 is my favorite. I don’t like the pattern or the straps on #2. #3 is very cute and is my second choice but I think the lavendar will look better with the BM dresses and black tuxes. #4 just isn’t my thing.

I like number one, but it looks to me that he dresses look like their for girls of different age types. like number one might be for a 2/3 yr old, dress 2 for like a 8 yr old, dress 3 for a 5/6 yr old and dress 4 for a 10 yr old. even that being said… my vote goes to number one with dress 3 being in second

The first one definitely feels like it’s for a smaller girl than your flower girls. Of the other three, I don’t like the puffy last one, it looks like a cake. On the other hand, I’m not 6 – so they might love it! From a purely aesthetic viewpoint, I would go with the third dress but replace the flower with a tie similar to the one of dress number 2.

I like 1 and 3, I think Id go with 3 for 6 and 7year olds.

Okay I love little girls in purple but I love #3 so much cuz it sparkles!!!
I also love that everyone else is in purple but there is very little charcoal represented so this is the perfect opportunity to bring the other color into the bridal party.

@Shanna777: I really love number 3. I’d have been thrilled to wear that as a little girl and I think that it will photograph better than any of the others. Plus, you don’t have to worry about the different shades of purple people are wearing looking mismatched.
Plis, I think both the purple ones are a little young for them.

@Shanna777: it was close call between 1 & 3. I just think 3 Looks more wedding-y because the print of 1 makes it a tad more casual.

I’m not big on #2 or 4- I really like the sparkly #3, but #1 is cute as well. #3 seems more formal to me.

What about something like this. charcoal with a purple sash? (I know the colors are off.

I like 1 or 3 probably like 3 a little more.
Definitely don’t like 4 (Think its the pickups on it)
