My wedding party is going to be pretty small: my Maid/Matron of Honor, FH’s Bridesmaid or Best Man, and two flower girls. My question is, if I wear an ivory dress is it ok if the flower girls wear white dresses? Or should they match? My colors are going to be colors of the sunset: pinks, yellows, and oranges with pink as the main color. I was also thinking of the flower wearing pink or orange. The dress I found comes in white, pink, orange and green. So now my dilemma is just what color. If I do the white, I was thinking of changing out the white sash to a pink sash. Oh, and FH isn’t sure about a 2 yr old and a 4 yr old wearing white!

My personal preference is for flower girls to wear white with accents that match the wedding colors. For example, our flower girl is wearing a white dress with a sage green sash and carrying a pomander with flowers in sage and lavender.

I think white will be perfect. I love your colors (they’re similar to mine!) and I think a hot pink sash would be so cute!

I don’t think the flower girl HAS to match the bride, but I think that if you’re going to have her in a white-family tone, it would probably look better in the pictures to have her in ivory.
I personally prefer flower girls in shades of the wedding colors with a white/ivory sash or flower, but that’s just me. The "mini-bride" look is not my personal preference, but you know what you like best! 🙂
Let us know what you choose!

I’d agree that in pics white might not look as good. Mine are wearing white dresses with fuchsia sashes ($25 on e-bay, shipping and everything!), but I’m wearing white so it works better. I like the idea of having them in the wedding colors with any ivory sash. Maybe even have them wear two different colors? And for the record, if you do the white, what’s wrong with a 2 and 4 yr old in white? Mine are 2 and 5, and they are. It’s adorable!

I would have to agree that if you are in ivory, you might not want them in white. It sounds like the other colors would go wonderfully. Are the BMs wearing pink? If you could get the FGs in pink, lighter pink, or have them each in a coordinating color (like both in orange, or one orange one yellow) that would be nice.

I think a friend of mine wore ivory and her flowergirl was in white; pretty sure it wasn’t a big deal. You may want to to hold up a swatch of white when you have your ivory dress on and see what you think; maybe snap a pic and see how it turns out?
I haven’t decided on my flower girl’s attire b/c I can’t decide if I want them in white or a color. I’m waiting to really look for them until around Easter when all the adorable little girl dresses are out. I have shades of pink in my color scheme, and at that time I’m thinking I may have more color options in their sizes for more reasonable prices. Just a thought…

I don’t think it matters too too much if they wear white and you wear ivory but since you have the choice I would put them in pink or orange.

My flower girl dresses are red and white… I want them to have a little color..(can’t trust two 4 yr olds in all white..lol..) Also an Ebay purchase…I’m a fanatic..

My flower girls are wearing exact replicas of my dress… just minus the train. They will be in all white! 🙂 AND they have straps as opposed to my strapless dress. They were being discontinued, so the $100 dresses were clearanced to $40!!! Couldn’t beat that!

Thanks for all your help. The flower girl dilemma is solved. I found the cutest light pink dress on target.com at a fabulous price. My SIL ordered them and they should be delivered by the end of the week. I’m so excited! Again, thanks for all your input and help!
