I’d like to know this too! I have mine and Fiance daughters in the wedding, one is a ring bearer, one a flower girl, and one holding the sign that says “here comes the bride”


Im wondering if they should match me or the bridesmaids.


@MissFireFlower, I did see some at Davids Bridal where I plan to get my dress, but there are quite expensive.

I am borrowing the flower girl dress from my mum. It’s one that my mumwore in 1962 when she was a flower girl herself at age 8. I hope it will still fit my niece next year – it’s ivory (almost pale yellow) lace, gorgeous and special to me as its what I used to wear playing bride as a little girl 🙂

I ordered dresses from JCrew & Janie and Jack, and ended up keeping the Jcrew Flower girl dresses.  I thought the styles both places had were the best I could find.

I ordered my girls dresses online, and if you want tofog this route to save money, I HIGHLY recommend finding the dress locally and then ordering it.  I picked mine out, they were a gorgeous mocha and brown combination with velvet flocked flower squiggles on the skirt.  They got here and they aren’t brown, thepare gold.  They will still work, and I love them, but I wish I had known the color wasn’t reallybrown, because I may have gone in a different direction altogether.

My Future Sister-In-Law bought the flower girl dress so I’m not sure where it was from or exactly how much it cost, but I think it was ~$30. She bought it new. Here’s pic of my niece trying it on:


It doesn’t exactly match my dress (which is champagne satin, with an ivory lace overlay and with a lot of silver beading) or the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (mismatched chiffon knee-length dresses in sage, gray, and blush) but I think she will be really cute, and since the dress is white (and she’ll wear some kind of flower in her hair or cute headband) everyone will know she’s part of the wedding party. My future niece- the flower girl – is 3, and she loves the dress (it is not too tight so she can play and twirl around in it – that was important in the decision). I’m sure whatever you choose your flower girl will look adorable – I always love getting a glimpse of some cute kiddos at wedding ceremonies!

1.  We bought it on ebay, but it was a new Alfred Angelo with tags
2.  $30 including shipping (would have been abut $150 in the store!)
3.  New
4.  Eggplant, and matches the BMs in color.  The Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are A-line, the flowergirl dress is poofier and I requested her to wear a crinoline slip underneath. 
5.  Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses weree $170, so nope, nowhere close!
6.  Not married yet!

  1. Where did you buy yours?
    — a bridal boutique in a city we were visiting
  2. How much was it?
    about $150
  3. Was it new or used?
  4. What was the color?

    Did it match your dress, the bms, or was it a totally different color

  5. Did it cost as much as your bms?
    about half as much as the bridesmaids’ and junior bridesmaids’ dresses
  6. (For married ladies) Did the flower girl get it dirty?
    actually, no, and she was sitting on the ground during part of our ceremony

    Was it comy?
    The flower girl seemed to like it.  She was able to wear it again for her First Communion dress, as well!
