I have had the WORST time picking out a flower girl dress .. mind you, becoming at peace with the fact that I have a flower girl. I cannot decide of a dress. I hate them all.
The one thing I just though of, is …. what if the flower girl wore all pink? I love pink and maybe I could inject pink in form of the flower girl dress … plus it will make me happy to have her b/c she is in a pink dress I chose?
We weren’t having a flower girl … than it was decided so quickly, and I agreed, that we would use fiance cousins daughter … who I barely know and is 5.
I love this picture and the more I look at it, the more I want her to wear pink. Her hair is even red like the girls in the picture, lol.
Ok, my moh (and only person standing with me) is wearing a deep sapphire blue dress I designed. The ring bearer will have on a silk white eton suit I designed, and the best man and groom will have white shirts (all the white matches the shade of my dress).
The ceremony will have all white flowers and the reception is going to be all white.
Will pink be ok? Hmm ….

My ring bearer will wear something similar to this, but he’s 2 1/2 and will have a matching eton jacket
My Maid/Matron of Honor dress is kind of like the one I’ve attached but deeper … it’s silk and chiffon and flowy.
and … mine is a secret (until wedding day) but is a soft white color … not beige though it’s brighter than ivory but not stark white.

My flower girls are wearing all pink dresses. Of course pink is one of my colors. Are you going to use pink anywhere else?

Aren’t your colors red, blue and gold? Or something similar? I wouldn’t put her in a pink dress if they are. I would stick with white or ivory to match the ring bearer. Also, if you don’t want a flower girl, why are you having one? You seem really unhappy about it.

We do have an emblem that has shiny gold, matte silver, deep red, and royal blue … but it’s on the invitation. Not sure where else we’d use it … haven’t figured that part out. I kind of just forgot …. ha … ok earth to me. Pink isn’t practical now ….
Ok. That sucks.
We were telling fiances parents we didn’t care to have a flower girl, we really didn’t know of any little girls we’re close to … but they insisted that we have a flower girl and now we have the daughter of fiances older cousin whom he’s not close with.
I’ve been dreading it a little … so I think thats why I cannot pick out a dress.

oh, well if the little girl already knows and is excited to be a part of your wedding, then it’s not worth hurting her feelings over it.
pink is a combination of red and white mixed together, so i think it’s perfectly fine for you to use. everything doesn’t have to be matchy-matchy. just as long as everything is coordinated. based on the description you provided for your wedding, the pink dress will work out fine.
that’s a really cute dress! go for it! i’m having flower girls and they are not wearing white. i don’t like the idea of having a mini-me bride.

I don’t like the idea of mini-me brides either. When I say white, it wouldn’t be like a little wedding dress or anything. It’s a Southern thing, it’s hard to explain. Flower girls don’t look like mini brides here, but do wear white or ivory most of the time.

And your ring bearer’s shirt won’t be unbuttoned and collar popped, right? 🙂 **hehe**
That will go just fine! Especially if that’s what will make you happy to see!! :))))

Kate I know what you’re trying to convey. In the south we DO use white and other pastels pretty much for flowergirl dresses but they aren’t at all similar to the brides’ dress. Try looking at a site called “Wooden Soldiers”. They have the MOST adorable flowergirl dresses, special occasion dresses, and some of the cutest ever suits for little boys (the kind with the bermuda shorts).
I used to buy my little boy’s special occasion and holiday suits from them!
That’s where I’d get my flowergirl dress for T’s daughter and for my son’s half sister (his dad and stepmom’s little girl whom I adore). How about checking online there? They have two mostly white dresses and one thats’ mostly white with a blue (royal type color) flower on it and it’s very cute.
Imho if you’re ever in doubt over your colorscheme feel,just bring the swatches with you to every vendor and when finding each attendant and even the flower girl dress and even the guys’ ties!

I say just put her in whatever you want that’s cute and throw some flowers over her head! Done. She’s obviously a flower girl and I love when little girls wear frilly pastel dresses (NOT white like the brides).
Could the little ring bearer wear a matching tie or have a matching pillow so there’s coordination there, if not with the rest of the wedding?

I don’t think your flower girl needs to match or co-ordinate with your decor – just your wedding party. And pink sounds like it would fit in fine! If you wanted to tie it in, you could try a white sash to match everyone else.

Could you do something with touches of pink but that cordinated more with your wedding colors and wedding party?
