I don’t really like little girls in black either, but that’s just a personal preference. You should do what you’re happy with.

Hmmm…are you having a B&W wedding?  I would suggest maybe white for the Flower Girl.  I don’t know, maybe if you sent some links it would help visualize it, but it sounds a little somber.  It depends a lot, also, on how old the Flower Girl is.  I think black might seem odd on a <6 yr old.  If she’s older maybe that’s different.

Are you using any accent colors?  I agree with the other who said black on a flower girl is a little out of place, but I also understand if you want to be the only one in white.  If your wedding is strictly b & w, with no other colors, I would maybe suggest a light pink dress.  It would be pale enough that it wouldn’t make a big splash of color, but pale pink is also very "little girl-y."

How old is the flower girl? Those two dresses look a little too mature for a young girl… I think a light pink would be cute too.

I  agree in trying to have her wear an accent color, such as what will be in the bouquets.  THe dresses are cute, but even for 6, I think black comes across as a bit mature.  But really if you want it that way, I think it will be OK.  Also, you might want to have her try on some black dresses to see how she’d look in them. 

Even if your other colors are dark (burgundy? Navy blue?)  I think they’d be better than black.

I thought about doing black dresses for my Flower Girl. It’s fine! Go for it.

When I looked for Flower Girl dresses I was shocked at how mature they all look…so I’m guessing those are pretty typical.  I picked one that I thought was a bit more appropriate for my niece (with my sister’s okay).  But I guess that’s what the young girls are wearing these days 🙂

I think with the white accents they won’t look too somber, but my personal feeling is to agree on the fact that they look pretty grown-up (I think it’s just the thin straps instead of a real neckline…makes ’em look kind of like strapless dresses).  The flower cut outs might make it look more girly.  Have you talked to your FG’s mom about this?

What about one that’s white but has heavy black accents? Then you could still say you were the only one in *all* white 🙂 It would also contrast well with black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses with accents of white.

 

If you do decide to go with black, I think there are options out there that still look playful and fun:

I’m not in love with the idea of a black flower girl dress, but I don’t hate it. I totally understand about her not being in white though! I hate those flower girl dresses where they look like mini brides! I agree with everyone else, that you could maybe try putting her in accent colors?

 Here’s some that I found that were cute

I like the idea of white with black polka dots like two of the options JoesWifey posted. Not all white but perhaps more age appropriate for a flower girl than a black dress. Plus polka dots are fun!
