    I think it depends. If you’re having the Flower Girl be in a similar dress to the rest of the Bridal Party there really shouldn’t be any question about it (bride decides). If you tell the Mom of the Flower Girl to just get her anything in pale pink,white,ivory,etc and something she can possibly wear again, then she should decide. Usually people have such different taste in regular clothing it might be hard to pick something together.

    I think most times,tho, the bride picks and the FG’s Mom just buys it!

    the bride, but it would be nice to involve them… make the little girl feel like she helped.

    @StormyRose: Vetoed, as in she refused to put it on her? Why? Do you have a picture?

    The bride. Unless you’re asking the Flower Girl to wear some ridiculous get-up that the mother finds inappropriate, she really doesn’t have a say. However, she can also choose to not allow her daughter to participate so it’s probably best to be on the same page.

    I don’t see anything inappropriate about that dress. What is she supposed to wear then? Maybe have something simple custom made? If that’s the case, I’d let them pay for it.

    @StormyRose: What can you do if she can’t wear that? Anything off the rack that can be altered to fit? OR..she just can’t be in it,I guess.

    The bride. I have never heard of the flower girl’s mom making that decision.

    The bride is definitely the one that makes that decision (in my opinion).  It’s your wedding and should be styled how you want it to be styled.

    I looked through websites and picked several that I liked. My sister looked through them and together we found one that came in her size, would fit her well, that she liked, and that was a good price. It ended up being my favorite one.

    I do think the bride’s opinion is the most important but I think the mom and kid should have some say. I mean if I’d picked out a strapless or seethrough dress she should be able to veto that. If I picked something $100 out of their price range they should get a say.
