Colorful Alternatives to All-White Flower Girl Dresses

Stray away from white dresses and move towards charming styles with a pop of color.

When choosing a look for flower girl(s), the go-to hue for many brides is white. While the vanilla shade is lovely and beautifully complements a bride's wedding-day attire, there are a variety of other options to consider that can actually enhance the look and feel of your ceremony. Bridesmaids typically wear gowns in a shade also found in wedding décor, so why not consider the same idea for your flower girls?

Champagne hues are perhaps the easiest way to stray from all-white flower girl dresses if you don't absolutely love the idea of having little ones walk down the aisle in an overly bright hue. Choose an all-over dark ivory gown, or a design with a white bodice and a frothy tulle skirt in a shade of beige. The same style can be achieved with a light lavender or yellow skirt, or any other color that fits well with wedding flowers or bridesmaid attire. With the continuation of the blush wedding trend, dressing flower girls in light pink gowns is an easy choice. Other colorful options include gold sequin dresses or even ebony styles for a black-and-white wedding.

Whichever hue you prefer, make sure flower girls are dressed in a shade that's also used in the ceremony décor – whether it be repeated in the flowers, linens, chair cushions, or wedding party attire. For inspiration, take a look at the adorable flower girls pictured below.
