Often mothers get confused about what would be the right outfit for such an important occasion. It is not very difficult to get it right as long as you pay attention to a few things.
You will be responsible for financing the dress and accessories for the event and flower girl dresses are a tad bit expensive. Therefore it is always a good idea to set a budget. Generally, parents are reluctant to spend a lot on these outfits even if they can afford to do so because these dresses are to be worn only a few hours and kids outgrow them quickly.

Once you have your budget and you are out to hunt for the dress, the first thing to decide is what color will be the dress. At this point, it is recommended to involve the bride in the decision making and factor in her preference. If she wants the flower girl to follow the color of the bridal dress, look for white or ivory flower girl dresses. You can look for other hues if she wants the flower girl to follow the general wedding theme. Whatever you choose, make sure it is in line with the overall aesthetics of the event.
Style and Fabric
Although the style of the dress is entirely up to you, it is recommended to pick something that will be comfortable for her to carry. If you do not want to go for a plain dress, lace flower girl dresses work great since they add the right oomph to the look. Avoid heavy embellishments or itchy fabrics just for the sake of bling since they make kids uncomfortable.
