Being a mommy to a little girl has its own fun and charm. Not that this about any sort of gender discrimination, but unlike boys, it is so much fun to dress girls in cute little clothes and accessories. Things get even more fascinating when they grow up a little to have their own choices in fashion and dressing. Most little girls love dressing up and aspire to dress like their favorite character from a Disney movie. The closest chance that your little girl can get to live that dream is when she is asked to be a flower girl at a wedding.
Preceding a bride down the aisle dressed as a mini bride is one of the most cherishable memory a girl child can have. It is also by far the cutest moment throughout the wedding. Therefore, if your little doll has gotten lucky enough to be chosen as a flower girl, you should, by all means, make it the best for her. While mommies love to see their little girls all dolled up, the responsibility of pulling off the best possible flower girl look lies entirely on them and it can get mentally taxing when you have so much more on your plate too. If you are finding yourself struggling in such a situation, this little guide will make your life much easier.
Start Preparing Early
You are a mommy and it is totally understandable that you have got a lot of responsibility. At the same time, you would not want to ruin it for your princess who is looking up to you to dress her up. The wisest thing to do for your own benefit is to start planning as early as possible, even if the wedding is quite a few weeks later. Having extra time on your hands gives you a lot of breathing space and you can look through many options and analyze what you want to do. It also allows you to budget your spending and then save up accordingly. Meanwhile, also search for different options and styles that would suit your girl. You do not necessarily have to go to a physical store for all that thanks to the online stores.
Set a Budget
Flower girl dresses are expensive, unfortunately. That being said, remember you started planning early and should already be having some savings by now? Decide how much you want to spend on the dress and set a budget accordingly. Also, do remember that there are accessories and shoes that will need some spare cash too so do not end up exhausting your entire budget on the dress alone.
Choosing the Dress
When selecting a dress for your princess, do not forget to involve your daughter, and of course the bride in the process, because it is her special day in the end. If you do not want to go for the traditional ivory flower girl dresses you can also opt for colored hued, but try to blend well with the overall wedding theme. Heavily embellished dresses are super expensive but if you do not want her to look too plain and budget is an issue then lace flower girl dresses would be your best
