7 Things You Must Know Before Buying A Flower Girl Dress

    It’s been decided! Your little one will be the flower girl at one of your relative’s or friend’s wedding. Now what? Don’t panic, there are a few steps you need to take to make sure she is dressed accordingly.CRAYON-944-PCH_3

Traditionally, the flower girl’s clothing was provided by the families of the bride and groom, but today most couples expect the parents of the flower girl to pay for her clothing and other expenses related to her participation.

 

   Here are some basic details you need to be aware of when shopping for “the” flower girl dress:SWKI-SK478IVO-DRESS__1_15

1.       What is the etiquette of the wedding? How is the couple? Is it going to be a Victorian Vintage theme or more of a Rustic Country Style wedding? (include links)

This is a first step that will give you an idea of what to look for and what to exclude in your search for the perfect dress.

Whatever the formality of the event, don’t pick up a long, uncomfortable dress that your little one will have trouble wearing. It will only reflect on her while walking down the aisle and the most important thing about this is for her to look and feel good.

2.  What does the bride want? Does she prefer a certain color or a style? Are there any special preferences about the length of the dress, hair, shoes, and accessories?

This is an important step before starting to look for the dress. Do not be discouraged if the bride gives you a long list of requirements for the event, there are lots of dresses out there for you to choose from and surely you’ll find one that will meet all of them.

3.  Where is the wedding taking place? Is it indoors? Or is it an outdoor location? Depending on this you will know how much or how little you need to buy.

-       For an outside venue: consider the fabric of the dress: cotton and linen are great fabrics, particularly for summer weddings. If the outdoor wedding is to be held in early spring, however, heavier fabrics and a jacket are in order.

-       Keep jewelry to a minimum – they might be uncomfortable in a hot sunny weather.

-       Hair is important to consider for a wedding outside: you might want to add a hat if the weather announces to be sunny or the ceremony will take place around noon. A nice, delicate flower is a wonderful accessory that will keep hair in place if it’s windy.

-       For a chilly season, consider buying tights for her little legs. You do not want her freezing on that aisle.

-       Make sure the accessories match the outfit.

4.  When is the wedding taking place? What year/season/date?

This will also help you choose an appropriate size for your little one – knowing how fast kids grow, you might want to buy the dress just a few weeks before the event. But do not leave this till the last moment. Having the dress ready and adjusted for the rehearsal – one or two weeks before the event is perfect timing.

5.  Are there other flower girls at the wedding? Because if there are, they might need to wear the same dress. In this case the bride might tell you she wants matching outfits and she will probably direct you for the exact dress you need to buy.

6.  Quality and wrinkle factor. We know our little ones move a lot! And before the actual ceremony takes place and afterwards for the photos she will probably do a lot of moving too! This will reflect on her dress so make sure you look for great quality material that will not wrinkle that easily.

7.  HER – You considered all these factors and asked the bride everything you needed to know about the wedding. Now, it’s time to get her involved! As she is the one that will be the center of attention, she needs to be comfortable and happy with the outfit. Tea-length white dresses with a bonnet or satin bow are standard and sweet, but there are many little-girl looks to choose from.

Being a part of a wedding event is an emotional and very rewarding event for a little girl – she gets to be the center of attention, pay an important role and dress up really pretty.

It is an important event that needs a bit of preparation and research. If you enjoy searching, mixing and matching and making sure everything is according to plan – congratulations! It will be an enjoyable process.

Flower Girl Flower Alternatives | SophiasStyle.com

A beautiful petal alternative!
If you’re planning a wedding then you know just how many details there are to consider. You have to choose a menu, pick jewelry for your bridesmaids, find a cheap flowergirl dress and decide on the types of flowers for the ceremony. No wonder you need a vacation after it’s all said and done! 

I hate to throw another wrench into your plans, but make sure to check with your church, synagogue or ceremony site before making a final decision on your flower girl’s flowers. Some places may not allow the flower girl to drop petals down the aisle because they could stain the floor or carpet. But don’t worry, there are plenty of alternative ways you can incorporate flowers into the flower girl’s walk!

1    Pomander ball Your florist can create one, or you can DIY. Simply cover a foam ball with silk flowers and attach a ribbon so she can carry it. 

2.    Ribbon Wand Attach flowing ribbons, flowers  or tulle to a stick. This would be an especially great prop for an outdoor wedding. The ribbons will look fabulous fluttering in the wind!

3.    Small Bouquet The flower girl is supposed to look like a miniature version of the bride, so why not give her a miniature version of your bridal bouquet? This way she can still carry real flowers but won’t make a mess throwing them on the floor.

Perfecting all these details can easily get expensive, so make sure to shop for discount flower girl dresses from SophiasStyle.com. We have hundreds of affordable baby flower girl dresses that are $50 or less!

First Communion Photo Taking Tips

communion-dress-2
Like at any other big family event – a wedding, birthday or anniversary – you’ll want to have special photos to commemorate your little girl’s First Communion ceremony and party. You’ll certainly want to capture digital memories of her in her elegant first communion dress, but there’s more to it than simply snapping away. There will be lots of other hustle and bustle around the church that day – other little girls in their first communion dresses, boys running around in their suits and family members shouting and waving. Dealing with all these elements can be really frustrating and might even ruin your pictures. 

Plan ahead a little to make sure everything goes smoothly and you get the perfect pictures that you want. It’s not a bad idea to take some pictures of her in her 1st communion dress before the big day. This way you’re sure to get a good shot before the stress and excitement of the event. You can take your time and not feel rushed by other parents who are waiting in line to take their pictures too.

You can also scope out a location at the church before the big day. You’ll want an area with good natural lighting and maybe some props or elements she can pose with. This way on the day of the ceremony you’ll know right where to go to take your photos, and won’t waste time testing out a bunch of different areas that might not work anyway. 

Finally, make a checklist of any special shots you’d like to get. This might include a family picture, one with the priest, minister or instructor, or a pose with special classmates. Nothing’s worse than realizing a few days later that you never included so-and-so in the pictures. 

Our elegant and affordable SophiasStyle.com communion dresses also help guarantee beautiful photographs. They all feature breathtakingly beautiful details that will make her feel extra special.

A great fall flower girl dress
The colors of weddings and flower girl dresses for Fall change along with the leaves. For Fall and Winter weddings you are more likely to see rich tones of red, orange, purple or classic black in the bridal party attire. Of course we pay attention to wedding fashion trends, and our Sophias Style flower girl dress inventory reflects that!

Red is always a great choice for a fall wedding. It’s a popular color so there are literally thousands of bridesmaids dress styles, decorations and floral arrangement ideas that incorporate this color scheme. We’re also in on the action with beautiful and affordable flower girl dresses in stunning shades of red.   

This classic red flower girl dress by Sweet Kids is even more stunning in person. It is a beautiful taffeta material that is rich and luxurious to the touch. The charming rosettes create a great detail that isn’t over the top – perfect for a formal church wedding. Since red is also a Christmas color, she can wear the dress again for the holidays. 
Another option is this Kids Dream flowergirl dress in a rich shade of burgundy. It’s still in the same color family but is a bit more understated than bold red. There are also black rosettes on the bodice and a small jeweled pin. This would be a stunning dress for a nighttime wedding – think lots of flowers and candles!


A stunning flower girl dress!
So many choices, such little prices! We carry hundreds of flower girl dresses that are $60 or less, helping to keep your dream wedding well within budget. Shop and see for yourself.
