She may only be small but your flower girl has a big job to do. As the opening act to the ceremony, she will set?the tone for what's to come, so it's only right that you take the time to choose the perfect ensemble. Plus, it's one of the most enjoyable parts of planning your wedding.
When it comes to the styling, don't be afraid to have a little fun and get them involved too. Maybe they'd like the chance to pick something that reflects their personality? Possibly the most important thing to remember is to make sure that your flower girl feels comfortable. Children like to run around so long hemlines may not be the best idea.
