I know I am being irrational. I know that once I calm down in the next hour or so I will be fine. I just can’t stop sitting here crying.
I just saw my cousin’s daughter post on FB her and her sister in their dresses for my wedding. They are both in white. Do they look great in the dresses? Yes. But they are in white dresses. I have had major problems getting the flower girl dress and she will look downright frumpy next to them. I ended up buying her a plain ivory sheath with a lace jacket and I don’t even know if she will be allowed to wear that yet. And both of these girls are wearing cute dresses that would fit perfectly with the bridesmaid gowns and everything. I can never and will never say anything to my aunt who took them dress shopping nor my mother who knows the problems and would be spiteful enough against the caregiver of the flower girl to want to show her up. So the bee is my only place to cry to.

I agree that it sucks, but it’s the flower girl who will have her moment in the spot light and it won’t matter what the other kids are wearing. And I’m sure your flower girl will look great, kids all dressed up like that always do =)

Wait are the other girls also going to be flower girls? If the bride is happy with what the flower girl is wearing I dont think its a big deal at all

@atlas.wed: That is what the raional part of me is thinking. 🙂 That she will look cute regardless. And yes she will be the one in the spotlight.
@bells: No the other girls are not flowergirls, just family members who will be there. The flowergirl is FI’s daughter. who is 9 and wears a size 12 in women’s so finding her something appropriate to wear has been a nightmare. The dress I wanted to get her did not come in a large enough size for her to wear and the dress I did buy her the caregiver had me send back. So I ended up going to Ross’s and getting a plain sheath and finding a lace jacket to dress it up a little, which has not been approved yet so I might have to get something else. The dresses my cousin’s girls are in are very similar to the original dress I wanted to get for FI’s daughter.
