So I took my 8 year old Niece out dress shopping on the weekend for our wedding. She isn’t actually the flower girl but is the only youth at our small wedding. We found her a very cute drop waist dress that is purple and blue with a covered back and shoulders, and the skirt is about finger tip length. We also got her very cute black closed toe shoes to go with. The question I have is I put her in nude stockings/nylons because it is a summer wedding and I thought she looked absolutely adorable, but is that an etiquette no no? I just looked up picture now of girls her age in any sort of summer dress and they are all wearing black stockings. I always thought coloured stockings were for winter wear and kids under like 5 years old. Her parents will dress her in whatever they are most comfortable with on the day of but I am just wondering what is the general concensous on that.
