Picking the Perfect Dress For Your Little One

Few things are more rewarding than dressing up a little princess for a formal event, and we think your little one would agree. Here at Sara Dresses, we delight in offering toddler flower girl dresses as well as tulle party dresses for children and tweens. Our dresses are available in all colors of the rainbow, and all of them are appropriate for more occasions than one.

As a parent, you may already have a crystal clear idea of what kind of dress you want to select for your child. You may also feel a little lost, especially if it’s your first time shopping. Either way, we believe that you might benefit from some of our tried-and-true dress selection tips, which we’ll list in this post. A formal dress is a big purchase, after all, and you want to make sure both your wallet and little girl are happy!

Choose A Dress That…

1. She Can Wear Again

Children grow quickly, and it would be a shame if your toddler only got to wear her flower girl dress once. When selecting a dress for a specific event, ask yourself if the piece could be worn again. Perhaps she’ll get to wear it to another party. If your daughter is a dancer, singer, or little thespian, perhaps she can wear it at a recital. In general, very fancy gowns (such as those with floor-grazing hems) suit few occasions, while subtle knee-length dresses are incredibly versatile.

2. Is Age-Appropriate

Here at Sara Dresses, we cater to young girls between the ages of 3 and 12. We know that a flower girl dress for a toddler looks very different from, say, a tulle party dress for a 10 year old. In general, younger children love having frills, lace and lots of volume on their dresses – yes, like a princess – while older girls will prefer something more down-to-earth and form-fitting.

3. Is Appropriate For The Weather

Formal occasions happen every season, and your child’s dress needs to keep her warm no matter the season. Unless you’re planning on outfitting her with a  shrug or fancy jacket, make sure that the sleeve length fits the expected temperature of the occasion!

4. Matches The Season’s Colors

Every wedding will come with a color scheme, and it’s crucial that you select a flower girl dress for your toddler that fit that scheme. The hosting party should let you know what that is. Even if you’re looking for a dress for a non-wedding event, it’s a good idea to match the season’s colors: pink and orange fit the spring, summer and fall seasons, for example, while dark red and brown suit the fall and winter seasons.

5. Suits The Event

Depending on the specific event you’re going to, there may be a host of other things to look for in a flower girl dress or tulle party dress for your child. First Communions, for example, require white dresses such as  this one. Make sure to do some research to find out what your event needs!
