Our flower girl makes her Holy Communion this May and our wedding is in June. We were shown her dress, and it’s really very pretty. The thought crossed my mind, is it wrong to suggest she and her mom consider it for the day of our wedding, or should we shop for an entirely new dress for the day?

I bet the mom would love a place to reuse the first communion dress! I would definitely suggest it!
Most flower girl dresses ARE first communion dresses. The same shops sell them for both occasions.

As a Mom, I would definitely appreciate it if you were ok with my daughter wearing her communion dress at your wedding.

@mzM2be: No, that is a great idea and I am sure the mother would very much appreciate it! It is just a suggestion, you’re not saying she HAS to wear it!

I have a daughter, and if I get the chance to reuse an expensive piece of clothing for her, I take it. I’m sure she would really appreciate if you suggested it was ok to use the same one. Just let her know if she chooses to get a different one, that’s fine also.

I think it’s a great idea. It’s funny because my flower girl is “graduating” the 5th grade 3 days before my wedding and I have been begging her mother to let her wear her dress to the graduation so she can get more use out of it and not have to buy a 2nd dress but she is so afraid she will mess it up before the wedding.

My flower girls are my daughters and yes I wouldnt mind re-using a dress at all. Im actually going to look for their dresses after the Easter sale. Hopefully I can find something really cute and hopefully it will be able to fit a yr later.

I think it’s a great idea. Maybe (if it works) you could get a sash or belt in your wedding color to change it up a little bit, but I think it’s 100% okay to reuse the dress!

I think it is a great idea. And a really beautiful dress would get more than one use. Go for it!

I think it’s a great idea. Ask her what she thinks!

Def it a great idea! It’s not often that someone gets to wear something like that again! Also, I think she will appreciate the fact that you are saving her money in the end! 🙂

I would definitely suggest it if you like it. It will save Mommy some money and she will be able to use it more than once. I don’t think it’s in poor taste at all.

great idea. The only issue I can see you having, as another bee wrote, is the fit. I like like the idea about adding a sash. They may want to buy a new dress, but most Moms would probably love getting a second use out of the dress.

@abbie017: that’s what I was hoping to do!

That’s a good idea, I wore my flower girl dress from my great uncle’s wedding for my first communtion too.
