Okay I feel like my flower girl is going to stand out… in a bad way =( My bridal party will be in black.
The guys will be wearing this:
The girls will be wearing this:
My son the ring bearer will be in something like this (but with a green shirt underneath):
and my grandmother got a WHITE dress for the flower girl… theres no white in the bridal party at all. Even I am wearing diamond white not bright white like the Flower Girl dress is. The bridal party is all in black with green accents like the bouts for the guys and the lanterns for my girls… I wanted a black or green dress for the Flower Girl and my grandmother said that is not how it’s supposed to be. UGH!
Heres the dress:
What am I supposed to do? She hates black dresses and she “hasn’t seen a single cute green dress in her life”. Will the bright white one look as bad as I think it will? Is it going to look bad with all the black and my darker white next to it?

Its normal for flowergirls to be in a white dress and her dress is gorgeous. Have your son wear the white shirt as in the pick instead of the green one and your flower girl wear the white dress. That way those two match and your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen are all in black.

@bridetobe7844: Do you think the stark white will clash with my off white dress? I wasn’t sure if that style even matched.

Can you compare the two dress fabrics? Usually the flowersgirls dress is a mini version or compliments the brides gown. Maybe you can find another white dress for your flowergirl in a tone of white the matches your dress better and still keeps your Grandmother happy. Also I just had a better idea, since you really to carry the green through your entire bridal party, put your son in the green shirt and buy a green sash for your flowergirls dress.

Honestly let her wear the dress and as the PP said have your son wear white shirt. No one is going to say OMG the flower girl dress doesn’t match the white of your dress. In the long run it isn’t going to matter stressing about this. After the wedding you are going to wonder why you even worried about it.

I think that having your son wear a white shirt is one solution, but frankly I would not have picked that dress for the flowergirl. She is going to stand out like a sore thumb. There isn’t anything about that dress that coordinates with the rest of the wedding party.
If it can be returned I suggest you look at Pink Princess for some green dresses or at least a dress with some green in it.
If it can’t be returned I would at least replace the sash and flower with green, perhaps also sew green detailing- beads, embroidered flowers etc scattered over the skirt.
There will also be a lot of lovely dresses for little girls around Easter in stores like Marshalls, J C Penney and TJ Maax.

It’s no big deal, might even add some color to your bridal party, lol i agree with above, you might wonder why you were worried at all after the wedding. I know the brides tend to overreact on trivial issues about their wedding, at least a few of my friends did. So just stop worrying itï¼Œthe most important part is you are marring the one you love!

@bridetobe7844: that dress is satin I think and mine is organza…. wayyyyyy off.
@Sassygrn: your right no one would say anything I was more thinking of the photos.
@julies1949: very good point! I doubt it can be returned but we can just get another one or change the sash like you mentioned… I like the idea of pinning flowers to the skirt too! I have tons of green flowers. I love this one! http://www.pinkprincess.com/d2130sg.html it reminds me of a cross between my dress and the bridesmaids design.
@Millia: hehe I know… I’m sure I’ll look back a few weeks later and laugh at all these nights I stayed up late asking advice on trivial things.

@HappilyEverAfter54: Too cute! I like the sash/flowers as a compromise.

The dress is quite attractive and impressive. You should wear this.

@alena20: the black one? I like it too… it’s a good mix of the bridesmaids dresses and my gown meshed together.

I talked to my grandmother about it this morning… altering the dress and buying a different one both seem to be ‘a pain’ in her eyes… but now I’ve got bigger issues than a Flower Girl dress that sticks out in a bad way. She wants me to ask my girls to pay for their hair to be done… ugh seriously? I’m already asking them to buy $100 dresses. I can’t win with any of this.

How old is your FG? That black dress is way too old for one unless she’s 12. The white one will be fine. She won’t be right on top of you so your dresses don’t have to match. My daughter wore diamond white with a champagne overlay and the Flower Girl was in bright white. Nobody would or did notice. Have your son in a white shirt and maybe have the Flower Girl carry something with both green and black in it. You’ll be fine.
By The Way. Its pretty normal for the Bridal Party to pay for their own hair. If you’re insisting they have it done, they YOU pay for it, but otherwise, they’re on their own.
