    White dress purchased by Gma

    ETSY dress material doesn't go with your gown...find something else in Ivory

    @slc201329:  Well, I honestly don’t know what an Easter dress is! But I don’t like the idea of the flower girl changing dresses. I think only the bride should be able to do that. So, I’d either decide to use the dress Gma gave or not. Since it has sentimental value, and it seems like you like the dress anwyay, then you should probably use it. The big tulle dress that you showed is pretty trendy right now anyway and one day you might look back and think it’s ridiculous. The Gma one will never be that way.

    @slc201329:  I guess I did kinda base that off the fact that I would’ve DESTROYED it hahaa. Sometimes I was really girly. And then I would go clomb a tree 😛

    I insisted our Flower Girl wear a white dress, even though my dress was a VERY cream-y antique white!

    Why? Because she’s a virgin, and I was not. In my head, flowergirls should always wear white!

    So I say go with grandma’s dress!

    Go with your dream dress.  If your dress already looks yellow compared to the white dress, it will always look yellow.

    The bride, groom and flower girl should all be in the same color.

    I actually like the Etsy dress way more…BUT I would not add the train. Just a cute, fun tulle dress

    I’m totally late but I do like Grandma’s dress, however, it can also be worn on another special occasion. Remember this is your big day and if your Fiance is anything like my hubby “You’re only doing this once!” lol Go all the way out to make sure you have absolutely no regrets! I too was an indecisive bride but when I started doing things that I wanted to do (within my budget of course) Things went a whole lot smoother. Honestly, it may not seem like alot of work to go get Gmas dress dyed or add to it but I’m sure there are other minor details you could be working on instead of that. Just Saying. So if you’re CRAVING the tulle dress, lol, go for it! *DISCLAIMER* I tried a tulle dress for my daughter’s Pre-K prom and ended up HATING it when she put it on…it just didn’t fit her thin frame like it does the cute/chubby toddlers in the photos.

    I lost my Grandmother in June and I chose to dedicate two pages in our custom made Guestbook to her! There are several ways to pay homage to your Grandmother and still choose another fabulous dress for your daughter!

    @slc201329:  The idea of a train on a little girl just seems way too much for me. Trains are for brides.

    I’m sorry, but that Etsy dress goes over the line into the awful “toddlers and tiaras” mode. PLEASE let your little girl just be a little girl – that dress is waaaay too much.

    Dyeing grandma’s dress could work (and let your daughter help pick out the color) – or purchase a different, age-appropriate dress for her.

    Holy crap, I LOVE that etsy dress, but can it be made without a train? It would go GREAT with my tulle dress. Do you have a link for it?

    Also, I think the white dress works best with your dress.

    Maybe you could have your daughter wear your grandmothers dress with a tule skirt tied around it. That way you can have the best of both worlds. Using your grandmothers dress and still get the tulle look. Also your daughter could take the tulle skirt off for the reception if it were to get in her way later.

    The one from Grandma! That has such special meaning. And I honestly think the etsy one is too large and crazy. 

    I don’t think the white vs. ivory matters at all. You and her will be in hardly any pictures together and for the ones that you are I think the sentiment will mean so much more 🙂
