    I found a couple of dresses I really liked all with different price points and styles.

    I put together an email with pictures and prices and sent it to the parents. Asking them their opinion and asking them to show it to the girls and ask for their opinion. We had 3 flower girls and 2 were old enough to have an opinion on their attire.

    My sister in law was the only one who ever responded with what her & my brother liked. And of course my niece liked a different one!
    My husbands brother and his wife never responded, even after we re-emailed them twice!

    Since BIL and his wife didn’t care enough to respond or show it to their daughter we informed them which one we decided to go with. The one my niece chose.

    Hey if you don’t care enough to send back a response you don’t get a choice then.

    I actually found our Flower Girl dress at JCPenney for $35!  It was adorable!

    I showed my SIL a picture of my dress and the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, and gave her an idea of the overall “vibe” I was going for. She bought two dresses (retail, not formal Flower Girl dresses) and is going to bring them both (they live out of state). She said I can pick which one I like best on that day, but really I don’t care too much so I’ll probably let my 5-year-old niece decide. 🙂

    I found what I liked.  She had shown me what she liked and it was >$100 with a train and not with the theme at all.  I did send a bunch of options to her mom which took two months to reply.  By that time I had already chosen and bought it.  I’m more of an immediate response/gratification person so I didn’t want to wait.

    Me, my mom, my flowergirl, and my cousin (flowergirl’s mom) all went shopping together.  My mom and I has scoped out a couple dresses previously that we really liked and my cousin gravitated towards the same ones.  Then we had fun dressing my flowergirl up in “princess dresses” while she posed like a diva around David’s Bridal.  So Cute!

    I begged Future Sister-In-Law (mom to 2 of the 3 flower girls) to choose.  I feel like I have enough on my plate, and I am SO SO happy to not have to worry about this.  I told her my colors, and told her that I don’t like flower girls to look like mini brides, and she’s going to pick out the dresses and accesories. 

    Obviously, this wouldn’t work for a bride who needs control of everything, but I’m a reluctant wedding planner (to put it mildly) and so this works beautifully for me!

    My flower girl is my niece and I asked my brother to find her a dress. He had some difficulty (said it was the wrong season for white dresses) but my mom found the dress that I wore for my first communion and it fits her! We’re adding a colored sash.

    i told them the style and color i was aiming for and am letting them choose. i don’t want to ask them to spend a certain amount of money, so i’m sure they’ll be able to find something retail.

    I showed them a few options I liked (at varying price points), and then allowed the mother of the flower girl to decide.  My flower girl is only 4 right now, but apparently she loved the dress that I liked the most.  Yay!

    My flower girl already had an ivory dress from another wedding she was in. I saw a picture of her in it before giving the OK! I wanted her to have a brown sash but in the end it didnt happen – and didnt matter!
