Most people look for something classic when choosing a flower girl outfit, but have you considered adding a little something unexpected to set your little flower girl apart? Whether your upcoming wedding occasion will have one or more flower girls, adding some unique flair or dress accessories to your flower girl’s outfit can be very rewarding for both her and the wedding guests in attendance. Your flower girl will still look picture perfect, but there will also be something unforgettable and uniquely her about her look. In this blog post, we’ll look at some easy ways to help your little girl stand out. Use them as the basis for your flower girl’s very own outfit.
1. Choose a Special Flower Crown
Flower crowns may be a pretty traditional flower girl accessory, but there’s a lot of wriggle room when it comes to choosing the right one. If you choose a special flower crown that especially suits your child’s personality, it can work wonders for helping set her look apart! Perhaps you’d like to set it apart by going large-scale and using huge flowers and leaves that coordinate with colorful dresses. Or, you can use beloved popular flowers such as orchids, daisies, tiger lilies, or sunflowers in her flower crown. We’ve got some large blossoms in our wreath collection, so be sure to take a look!
Another great option is to choose a flower crown that has something sparkly, such as rhinestones, gems or pearls, in the midst of all the flowers. This adds something majestic to a traditionally rustic look. There are plenty of such gorgeous bedazzled options in our flower crown collection.
2. Match the Theme
Some of the most beautiful weddings are those with a clearly defined visual theme. When many wedding details fit that theme, the entire event becomes a lot more unique and put together. If the wedding your little flower girl is planning to attend has a theme, then by all means pick dress accessories that will fit into that theme!
Some great ideas for themed accessories include:
- Cowboy shoes for a Western or rustic themed wedding
- Fairy wings for a spring or outdoor themed wedding
- String light crowns or flower girl basket for a nighttime or rustic themed wedding
- Traditional cultural dress for a traditional cultural wedding
- Cute fancy coat for a winter wedding
- Pearls and feather headpiece for a vintage or Roaring ‘20s themed wedding
3. Go for a Poofy Skirt
Flower girls can easily stand apart even if no unusual accessories are added to her outfit. All you have to do is pick out a traditional style flower girl dress with a unique and glamorous design! Yes, there’s a time and a place for subtle looks. Sometimes, though, maximalism is a good idea, especially if your little girl is a glamor queen! She’ll enjoy the chance to wear something with fashion character, and the wedding guests will enjoy seeing a little girl dressed to the nines.
One detail that can help a little girl turn heads as she walks down the aisle is an especially poofy tulle skirt. A dress with a short poofy skirt will give pixie dancer vibes, while a dress with a long poofy skirt will appear regal and luxurious. A poofier skirt will help create atmosphere and turn the wedding into a more splendid occasion. What’s more, your child will enjoy the chance to wear a colorful dress that pulls out all the stops!
4. Choose a Colorful Dress
Who said a flower girl dress has to be pure and simple in color? Choosing a dress with a vibrant color can be a great way to set your flower girl apart and add life to the wedding. Red or green, for instance, are rich and life-affirming colors. Blue, on the other hand, is refreshing and cool.
Another option is to choose a dress in a traditional color, but with a colorful pattern on the fabric. Patterns are more eye-catching and unique than solids. Some flower girl dresses will also come with colorful decals, which is another great way to break out of the traditional one-color dress mold.
5. Opt for a Vintage-Inspired Dress
Traditional isn’t always a bad thing! In a world so driven by sleek modern fashion, traditional styles can be the most chic and attention-grabbing. If the bride and groom have a love of old school style, then a vintage or vintage-inspired flower girl dress can be a great idea. Maybe your little girl would like wearing a complex lace dress or a flapper style dress. There’s something special about the juxtaposition of an innocent rosy-cheeked girl wearing an old school dress.
