If you had a flower girl, was her dress white/ivory or a color?

    Ours wore eggplant (same color as the bridesmaids), mostly because her mother found the dress cheap and told me she was bought it.  I wished it had been white/ivory.

    Ours was a light pink with darker pink flowers. I didn’t care what she wore and this was her Easter dress 🙂

    @Laurenplusalex:  I had the smallest bridal party possible: just my sister as a MOH. Our wedding colors were yellow and green (think more Springtime and less Greenbay Packers), my sister wore green so I wanted my two flower girls to wear yellow to incorporate my colors. Other than floral centerpieces, colored napkins, and hanging lanterns, the decor was very neutral, so I really liked having my flower girls wear one of my colors.

    @Laurenplusalex:  We are going with this one… but with an eggplant sash.  My dress is technically ivory but to me looks white so I want to compare colors to be sure, but still the white/ivory category.

    I didn’t have a flower girl, but always wondered why so many brides put them in white. Are they trying to look the mini brides or something?

    Our flower girl, our 11 year-old niece, wore white, even though I had suggested she wear a color! I let her have full control over the dress decision, but she wanted a fancy white lace, beaded, tea-length dress. She clearly loved it above all other dresses and it was adorable on her. She just loved that we matched, even though I wasn’t planning on it in the beginning. I was just thrilled that she felt so special.

    We had 9 kids in our ceremony (our neices and nephews), and the all walked down the aisle ahead of the bridesmaids.  All the little girls got to pick their own dresses, but they had to be ivory/champagne colour. The boys wore navy blue suits with bowties that my BIL’s sister made for us.  They were SOOOOOOOOOO cute!!!!!!!

    In 1977, my mother’s bridesmaids wore geranium pink, with the flower girls in light pink. In 2013, my sister’s bridesmaids wore eggplant (very dark), with the flowergirl (4) in ivory, like my sister. I’m wearing ivory, and my bridesmaids antique gold; the  flowergirl (9) is wearing the same color gold, but in a different dress design. 

    When I was a flowergirl, in 1989, we wore dresses that were marketed as 1st communion dresses. They were made of a fabric, that was similar to the bride’s gown, but a different pattern. The 2 bridesmaids wore a blue, floral print. I’m a pale blonde, as was the other flower girl (my cousin), so we looked very washed-out in white.

    @CurlyCue:  Actually, yes!  I noticed that when it came time to pick out the flower girl dresses.  Not only are 90% of them white, but they’re styled exactly like wedding dresses.  Pickups, corset style bodices, etc.  It was difficult to find a simple dress.

    My colors were Navy & Orange, so our FG’s wore white dresses, the older two wore an orange sash and headband.  The youngest had navy sash and a navy blue hair bow.  Got the older girls (they were like 7) on ebay

    Ours is white/ivory and she’s wearing a sash with navy flowers on it to match the bridesmaids.
