She’ll look so sweet and lovely it doesn’t matter whether the dress is £50 or £500… Many of the High Street designs are perfect for the little ones and there’s more and more to choose from all the time. Personally, I opted for a BHS dress for my flowergirl, it was £50.00 and looked like a million dollars.
High Street Or Designer?
I was even more grateful that I hadn’t spent more on it when, at the end of the night, she managed to rip the top layer off when playing hide and seek. You have been warned… The shoes were cast aside as “they hurt” apparently, so again don’t spend too much on these. Expensive ones will hurt too – and she was quite right to ditch them. I wanted to do the same…
This is Tess, the dress I bought for my flowergirl and it really is so pretty with buttons down the back and chiffon skirt. The bodice is lace with a satin bow sash around the waist. I notice that the price has now increased to £60.00, but in my opinion it’s well worth it. It was exactly what I had in mind as I wanted her dress to mimic mine as far as possible.
They also do a great selection of shoes.
The colour tied in perfectly with the groom’s accessories which were pale gold and I matched this with a table runner for the wedding breakfast display. I also took the pattern of the bodice for the cake design.
Have a look at Next and Monsoon for their collections too. They’re all pretty reasonable and offer several different styles to suit all ages of flowergirl or young bridesmaid.
Baskets are a nice alternative to posies and there are a few different designs around. Another option is to fill them with loose petals. This photograph is taken from our own wedding table.
