Flower Girl Looks We Love
There is that one moment during a wedding when the flower girl steals the show. All guests turn to see the sweetie in her adorable dress, sprinkling petals as she bashfully walks down the aisle. We love when one of our brides includes a flower girl in her bridal party. She adds a touch of charm and lightness to the ceremony. In addition to a basket full of petals, she may carry a mini-version of the bridesmaid bouquet or wear a pretty floral crown. For the bride who plans to have a flower girl or two, here are some of our favorite looks from Real BB Weddings to use for inspiration.
Is there a more fitting dress for a flower girl than one adorned with lovely little blooms? A petite bouquet of white hydrangea was the perfect complement to a lavender frock with floral appliqué that this little flower girl wore for a beach wedding at the Bridgehampton Tennis & Surf Club.
For a classically romantic wedding at the Pearl River Hilton, this gorgeous flower girl carried a white satin basket filled with blush colored rose petals, which accessorized her exquisite tulle dress perfectly. Her look was topped off with a floral head wreath composed of ivory spray roses and accents of seeded eucalyptus.
This flower girl is completely in her element as she gets ready for a wedding at the New York Botanical Garden. She carries a small wooden basket decorated with white lilies, ivory roses, and greenery. Her beautiful handmade flower crown is fashioned from white baby’s breath with a satin ribbon trailing down the back.
Jackie Kennedy said it best when she stated, “Pearls are always appropriate.” Is there a more classic pairing than pearls and roses? Just ask this little darling. Walking down the aisle, she wears a beautiful single stand necklace while carrying a tiny nosegay bouquet of blush roses.
When girls are really young, floral accessories should be small and delicate. Baby’s breath is an excellent choice, because the blooms are unfussy and will not overtake the wearer’s petite stature. The smile on this little flower girl says it all as she shows off her whispery baby’s breath crown at a 620 Loft & Garden wedding.
Getting ready for a Manhattan Penthouse wedding, this adorable trio stopped just long enough to pose for a picture. Complementing the girls’ dreamy dresses are lush, garden inspired crowns composed of burgundy ranunculus, Italian ruscus, asparagus fern, and a blackberry stem with cascading gold ribbon down the back.
This flower girl looks so much like a ballerina, you could take that exuberant smile for one that comes after finishing a solo performance on stage. She is actually smiling because celebrations for a wedding at Bourne Mansion are about to begin. A stunning natural wreath featuring blush, white, ivory hued blooms and greenery accents completes her ballerina princess look.
Choosing floral accessories for your flower girls depends on their age, the bridesmaid bouquets, and your overall wedding style. We hope these looks give you ideas for the flower girls who will be dusting petals down your aisle. And be prepared to share the spotlight with these sweethearts when they make their entrance.
