    @MoodyFoodie:  Definitely like 4 and below! 9 is too old for that. She’s almost a tween. Those kinds of dresses are for LITTLE girls, and brides.

    I think if she’s okay with wearing, let her.  Nothing wrong with little girls dressing like little girls.  I think those dresses are darling and my daughters have a few they dress up in just to play around the house.  I don’t think 9 is too old to wear something like that.  I think there’s such a huge push to make kids “grow up” that sometimes we dont’ realize that they’re still just little kids.

    ETA: My daughters are 4 & 5.

    My flower girl is 8 and is waay too old for a dress like that (I actually showed her that dress on Etsy) This is the one we are getting instead to be more age appropriate:

    @Payless:  I love this.  I also agree.. if she’s not into the puff, this is very age appropriate.

    That’s for sure a 5 and under dress. There are totally cute options for older flowergrils though!

    I actually didn’t feel comfortable with the tops on most of those type dresses for my 5 year old flower girl.  I ended up picking one on etsy that had a real top to it with straps.

    @MoodyFoodie:  If she wants to wear one, let her. But personally, I don’t think that style of dress looks nearly as cute once the child is past preschool age. Also, some of the back closures on these dresses would be scandalous on a tween-aged girl!

    My first instinct was to say she’s a little too old for that, but I think you should just let her pick ;). It’s very cute and I do think it would look cute if she’s tiny.
