Ask Design Mom — Flowergirl Dresses

February 22, 2010

Ask Design Mom Question:

Hi Gabrielle. My daughter will be the flowergirl in my sister’s wedding on 10/10/10 here in Southern California. (She is 5 years old.) We are looking for unique flowergirl dresses for the outdoor event. Any clothing company recommendations? We are thinking non-white for the little ones in the wedding. Thanks. Stephanie

Design Mom Answer:
Thanks for the question, Stephanie! What a memorable date for a wedding. Love it. My first thought is to send you to Crewcuts. It’s a super-dependable source for wedding-appropriate kid stuff. Check their
everyday dresses and their wedding/party dresses.

But there are also a million other great sources. Depending on how formal the wedding will be, you might like the offerings at Dagmar Daley, Ses Petites Mains or this Hanji dress from Tea Collection.

What about you, Dear Readers? Where do you shop for wedding clothes for little kids?

I have to recommend

Okay, I am biased but we offer over 200 colors of silk in any combination they want – so anything goes. sells online now only instead of the 1900 stores we used to sell to, so pricing is factory direct! if they have any questions, one of our designers are on staff until 11pm.

My sister is getting married in a month, and we looked all over for simple pink frilly dresses for a low cost- and we went with Costco easter dresses. They even had sleeves- a must have for a March wedding.

We're attending a wedding this spring and our daughter is wearing a "Vintage Dress" from Mini Boden. She's wearing the green with the pink ribbon trim. Super cute.
Here it is:

I love the variety of Joan Calabrese's designs. Great fabrics, beading/ribbon/flower options.

I am partial to crewcuts…I just love their little girl dresses.

I exhausted this topic when I got married last year! We decided on these sweet pixie dresses from Pip-squeak Chapeau:
They were like little angels floating in these sweet frocks!

Shabby Apple has some cute, colorful (more casual) dresses. My flower girl's dress (made from Amy Butler fabrics) became the inspiration for a LOT of design elements of my wedding.

I went to department stores around Easter. I was able to get relatively inexpensive dresses in the color I was looking for and they were perfect!

Alabama Chanin makes amazing things for weddings! I also love the crew cuts tip!

I got my flower girl's dress from It was ivory with green polka dots, and we made a green sash to match the maids.

And for ringbearers definitely buy the tux – check ebay. You should be able to find something for $20-30 instead of renting for $60+.

I love the dresses on They are organic and beautiful, and as if that isn't engough they have the same sort of premise as Tom's Shoes, Buy-one, give-one. AND the you get to pick the dress you give.

My sister in law discovered for the flower girl dresses for her wedding. They're pretty traditional (white, poofy), but WAY cheaper than anything we found in the stores, plus they do free shipping if the size isn't quite right (which we needed – worked like a charm).

I would love to have you take a peek at my line (Pears +Bears/ Kayce Hughes). Our dresses have been in lots of Martha Steward Wedding magazines.


19 PUMPKIN PETUNIA February 24, 2010 at 12:48 pm

Chasing fireflies has beautiful dresses that would be a bit different for a flower girl.

Also LOVE Kayce Hughes, but I see she posted.

Also love Olive Juice Kids; very classic, simple lines. Love the Spring Poppy Dress.


21 Julie Stephens February 24, 2010 at 6:15 pm

Eden's Bouquet. Not cheap, but GORGEOUS.

I love the dresses you picked. I also want to recommend Flora and Henri. They carry the most simple, modern yet beautiful dresses. My son wore some wore f&h in my sister's weeding and his outfit was a smashing success.

Flora has some excellent designs but these aren’t really appropriate for a flower girl dress. I don’t know maybe its me…


28 Rajeen Loius July 27, 2010 at 9:29 am

Is there any Ivory Dresses that goes with these flower girl dresses?
