This week I am going to show you the cutest little flower girls dresses...EVER. I was completely obsessed and told everyone that if I had the choice, I would have worn theirs...ha-ha.
Our two nieces were our flower girls, both daughters of Chuck's sisters. I was absolutely thrilled that they could both be in the wedding and share a part of our special day.
I knew from the start that I didn't want traditional white or ivory dresses for the girls. With the variety and shades of purple that the bridesmaids wore , I wanted the flower girls to be in touches of purple too.
I looked on Pinterest and Etsy for wedding things before we were engaged (I know I'm not alone...no shame here) and enjoyed browsing through ideas. When I decided on purple I searched Etsy again and found some beautiful dresses.
I finally decided on a purple ombre tutu dress for the girls and ordered them from FrillyFairyTales on Etsy. Dawn was a dream to work with and so informative and helpful. I first asked her how far in advance I could order and she immediately put me on her list for orders based on when I needed the dresses.
She advised how to measure the girls for width in the chest and length, based on where I wanted the dresses to fall. I suggest going to a local bridal store and having people measured, just to make it easier for all parties involved.
After submitting the measurements to Dawn, all I had left to do was wait. I ordered the dresses with slips sewn in so that the tulle wasn't itching the girls. I told the girls to wear whatever type of shoes they were comfortable in as long as they were something that matched the picture of the dresses I had given them.
The dresses came in almost a whole 2 weeks prior to the wedding which was great. When I pulled them out of the box I was so giddy because they were absolutely perfect. I got so many compliments on how pretty their dresses were, and I'm pretty sure the girls loved them too.
Just look at these sweet little sugarplum fairy flower girls....
