We’re having FI’s 2 adorable cousins as flowers girls, and I’d like them to wear white dresses, and I’m makign bows to tie around their waist from extra material from the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (pink). My question is – my dress is ivory, so should they have ivory dresses (meaning they’d probably have to shell out and get an official flower girl dress) or is will regular white look fine (meaning they can just find any cute dress from Macy’s or whatever store you buy little kids clothes at) I know WHITE white veils look weird with an ivory gown, but will WHITE white Flower Girl dresses clash, too?
I want something pretty basic (I want them to be able to use the dresses again) like the below 2. The top is from Macy’s for $50, the bottom is from Alfred Angelo (where the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are from) and are around $170 (more, I might add, then the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses!!!).

My dress is ivory also and I am going for ivory for my Flower Girl. It’s almost Easter..you should be able to find ivory dresses for little girls in the same shops for less than $100. Or try the small boutique bridal shops.

I’m having an ivory dress and Flower Girl will have an ivory dress. I just keep thinking of my picture with her and what it would look like if she were wearing white vs. ivory. Sorry, but I just don’t think white next to ivory will look as good.
Have you checked David’s Bridal Flower Girl dresses? Here is the one my BG will wear…
It’s $79-$99 before any sales (and DB’s is ALWAYS having some type of sale).
Also it looks like a fairly simple style. I bet you could find a similar pattern, fabric and a seamstress to do it for you for around $50.

i’m not crazy about matchy matchy so i don’t think i would mind as much if there were white and ivory. but if you’re worried about it, i’m sure that you will be able to find an ivory dress in a normal store. This is from Dillards for $35.00.
