We are having four flower girls. The Guy has four nieces and we couldn’t include one of them without including all of them. They will be (at the time of the wedding): 4, 5, 10 and 11. I’m trying to find a dress that will work for all four girls. Our colours are chocolate brown, champagne, apple green, ivory and a few subtle touches of pink. The BMs are wearing chocolate brown and the GMs’ tuxes will have brown vests/ties.
These are the dresses I’ve narrowed it down to. I have a favourite, but would love to know which one you prefer.
#1, Butterfly emrboidery on brown taffeta with bow:
#2, Polka dot embroidered organza:
#3, Polka dot taffeta with bow:

I really like the last one… it’s young enough for the little ones, but not overly childish for the older ones!

The last dress is so cute! Also I am a sucker for polka dots.

I feel like the last one is most likely to please everyone from a 4 year old to an 11 year old, though it’s possible that the 11 year old and maybe even the 10 year old would think that they’re all too “babyish.” Would it be possible to make them junior bridesmaids instead of flower girls? I think they’re all adorable but girls that age can be fickle creatures.

I love the last one. Alternately, could you make the two older ones jr bridesmaids? They wouldn’t have to be in the same dress as the little ones (or the same as the regular bridesmaids) as long as they coordinated together…
Just a thought.

I think the bows look fine for the younger ones,but are a little too much for the older ones. If you want them in the same dresses,I’d remove the bows for the older ones and they’ll still be similar.

I think they are all adorable for the two youngest girls (4 and 5) but the first two look too “little kid-ish” for a 10 or 11 year old. I think the last one could pass as appropriate for your whole age span though.

I like the 3rd one 🙂 So cute.

I think #2 is the most aesthetically pleasing. #3 is cute too, but I think people just expect to see white, so I vote #2.

I like #3.
On a side note, I’ve seen the same material of dress 2 used for home decorating…. so if I saw those I’d be thinking of couches and pillows… lol.

I like #1 for the younger girls ( I like butterflys) but they’re a little young for the older girls. I want to gently point out that the two older girls may be a bit old to be considered flower girls. I read on the knot that “The role of junior bridesmaid is appropriate for young ladies aged 9-14.” That might be a better role, and you cold pick out dresses that compiment the flower girls, but were slightly more mature.

Ladies, thanks for all your great feedback!
@Bride109 – They begged to be flower girls, so I’m pretty sure they’re okay with the title and I’m not too concerned about the “rules.” But thank you 🙂
I also like dress #3, so I think that’s what we’ll go with. As for it being too young for the older girls, they are quite “young” for their ages and dress #3 (bow and all) is very similar to the dresses they both wore to our family Easter this year.
Thanks for all your input – I’m going to order dress #3 for my girls
